I don't want to sound like a spoil-sport so tell me if thats what I'm being...but I'm missing the "best game ever" nature of the 'Cuse/Connecticut game. Yes it was phenominally long and it was cool that players that never sniff the court got to play at prime time because everyone else had fouled out. But what is so wonderful about:
(1) Some ass-clown embarrassing himself by standing on the press table because he made a shot after the game had ended? How juvenile is that guy? Didn't he get into some sort of trouble earlier in the year (legal maybe)? I get being excited, but how about trying a little respect.
(2) The fact that neither team had the spine/skill/nerve to hit a game winning shot for six straight five minute periods?
(3) Watching two arrogant, self-indulgent -- albeit wonderfully successful -- coaches bytch and whine for over three hours?
Anyone notice that the loses of Kansas and Oklahoma didn't prove the depth of the Big 12 but rather its weakness to the national media? Why is it that when a Big East "power" is upset its because that league is so amazingly stacked? I, for example, don't believe that 'Cuse could beat Texas or OSU on a neutral court 4 out of ten times....
