    It was a very well-fought game both ways. I didn't think either team really played their best (Duke certainly didn't, and from what I saw of Butler prior to this game it wasn't close to their best as well), but it was certainly well-fought and a worthy title game. No lead larger than 5 or 6 either way.

    Wow... finally. Been too long, but finally back on top. Go Duke!!

    Here's that hideous banner again...[face_sick]


    Weren't we going to make Tunick stop posting in red if this happened again? Or ban him?:p

    You knew this banner was coming :D And don't complain, I put that ugly UNC banner up last year *shudder*

    And Tunick also said he was going to stop posting in red if the move was real, and is going back on that. Shows how much that means :p

    A great game to cap off a great tournament!
    =D==D==D==D==D==D==D==D==D==D=

    And to top it all off is that most beautiful banner to adorn The Arena for the next week! :D[face_flag]

    Congratulations, DUKE BLUE DEVILS, 2010 National Champions!

    Hey, Rogue isn't the only Duke fan in here!

    This tournament was the ultimate in tease. From RMU not quite holding on against 'Nova to start it off, to Butler not quite getting their shot in the final fifteen seconds to fall in the title game. My favorite team having the National Player of the year, and their top seed knocked out early, and not being able to get even to a regional final.

    I did know that it was coming, but that doesn't make it any better. :p At least we'll be back to baseball (presumably?) in the next day or two.



    Congrats to Evan Turner!

    Baseball or equestrian is next. But what do you mean, next day or two? I suffered through that UNC banner for a week after they won it last year!

    [face_talk_hand] Like I said before, I wasn't around during the championship game last year, so I don't need to suffer like you did. :p

    Seeing that she's in Iraq, I'll jump right on that. :p

    Although, she did post her displeasure in the game's outcome over at the Nest (the Talon's board). :p

    Way to create a unifying spirit in the forum, guys. [face_shame_on_you]





    :p

    I guess you guys can have your fun with the Duke championship. I've had mine with the Pens, Steelers, and Heels recently. :p

    Going to college with friends from Ohio and Philadelphia, I learned not to gloat. Maybe you should do the same. :p

    I grew up (and live) in Columbia as a South Carolina fan. This is not exactly a place that has much to gloat about :p

    EDIT: and Rew's video is quite appropriate :)

    Because I don't see any other place to post this...

    Congratulations UCONN HUSKIES! Who won their SEVENTH consecutive NCAA women's title last night, and kept their 78-game winning streak intact.

    Maya Moore is one of the best college basketball players around.

    It was their seventh overall, and second consecutive. But, still, quite a feat. Congrats to them!

    Yeah, they haven't quite matched UCLA of the late 60s/early 70s yet :p

    I still don't think anyone ever will.
