I love Duke, but I go to LSU. I don't want to see either one lose, but I have my obligations.

I have to say it!

GEAUX TIGERS!

Big Baby should have a good battle with Williams but Baby will win that match-up. In the end Redick will make the difference, Duke wins

Wichita State-George Mason is the game of the year. Who would have predicted that one in the Sweet Sixteen at the start of the season? Hell, at the start of the tourney. Talk about two teams who really truly want it.

Thank heaven. Now I can finally watch the games. I always say the NCAA toiurnament doesn't begin until Duke is ousted. I can't describe my grin when I clicked back and LSU was leading 57-54 with 25 seconds left. Now we just need someone to evict the Gators and the sports world is cleansed.

the Gators are now the front runner, they have good rebounding, shooting, defense, what don't they have? yes they usually choke but this year is a totally different team

Since I have Wichita going to the Elite Eight anyway, now that my champs pick is out, I will lead you all in the Shocker Concerto:

"Let's go, Wichita!"

Wow I didn't see this coming..

Oh yes I did.. Duke wasn't gonna win the title is was just a matter of time till they played a good team.. I had LSU beating them and thought, if LSU didn't there was no way they would make it by Texas again.. I am mad we can't have another Duke - Uconn game, but watching Redick go down in flames again tonight was kinda scary..

Great pick for a shocker a 7 or 10 beating a #1.. I am sure Uconn will be thrilled to see one of those teams to advance to the elite 8..

Didn't watch the game, and a good thing I didn't; I would have been throwing empty beer bottles at the TV. Syracuse is out, now Duke's out. Now I've got to cheer for Connecticut just in the hopes that my bracket will win. I feel like a mercenary.

Mason has a good team, they are seeded too low. It's a bold prediction but I stick by it

C'mon guys the officiating was horrible. Reddick was getting held non-stop. They were reaching like crazy then at the other end they would call fouls which probably were fouls but were happening at the other end of the court everytime Duke brought the ball up. The reach on paulus at the end was such a bad call. Baby Shaq traveled like crazy down low

LSU! LSU! LSU!

You cant have 2 teams, either you root for LSU or duke. All year it's been duke, duke, duke and now it's LSU? That's weak. When you decided to go to LSU you should have changed then and been talking about LSU instead of duke.

Did you mind when Davis and thomas barely played in the first half b/c of touch fouls? for due to ever complain about officiating is as comical as it gets.

Please look at my signature. What school do I go to?

Thank you.

I've always said the ONLY way I'd pull against Duke is if they play LSU.

Next question?

You can't talk duke, duke, duke then all of a sudden it's LSU. You have to pick one or the other. Either the school you go to or the school you grew up liking. You can't be that big of a duke fan if you'd root against them and you can't be that big of an LSU fan if you never talk about them and just talk duke.

You know, I agree. Duke was getting calls all night. How about the one where the LSU player leapt out of bounds and threw the ball back in play, yet the ref called it out already when it was clearly in. How about when Redick lowered his shoulder into the middle of the LSU player's chest in the backcourt and they called a block. How about all the times Cro-Magnon had his elbows up and they didn't call it. I was watching the game with a Duke-bound friend and her father (and I had Duke winning the whol shabang), and everyone agreed that the officiating was definitely in favor of Duke.

In this game, if you want to complain about officiating, I've got a few suggestions for Duke:

1) Shoot higher than 27.7%.
2) Instead of taking contested jumpers and lay-ups when covered by the entire LSU defense collapsing around you in the paint, move the ball around and dish it out. They had horrible ball movement all night long, and it resulted in worse execution.
3) Box out on free throws. I've never, ever seen a team (LSU) miss about half of their free throws and still take advantage of being at the line. How many times did they get the offensive rebound on a missed free throw. There were at least two, at the end of the game, when Big Baby kept missing and Cro-Magnon just let him go around him. If Duke wasn't boxing out, nobody was even making a move for the ball.

But yeah, it was definitely the officiating.

Right, so you know my allegiences better than I do. :rolleyes2

Again, I've ALWAYS said, the only way I'll pull against Duke is if they play LSU.
Another thing, there aren't that many SEC basketball fans in here. There are a ton of UNC fans. It made for better debate to talk UNC/Duke.

Want more proof? Look at the first post in this thread. I said "Geaux Tigers" BEFORE the game.


...Why am I arguing with a Jets fan? Your kind wrote the book on "weak."

I'm not trying to insult you and yes I saw your post BEFORE the game but it doesn't change the fact that you never talk LSU basketball. I guess i'm weird as I think people should live an die w/ one team. I can't invest the same emotions in 2 teams and I think it's not right to have 2 teams IF you are a big fan. If you are a casual fan that's one thing but I never got that impression w/ you.

Who still thinks that Redick is a top 5 pick.. He is anti-clutch.. He kinda reminded me of Randolph Childress, expect Childress was as clutch as they come, and Redick just shoots and shoots, but doesn't produce in big games.. Redick a better scorer and shooter, but Childress better passer, defender..

He will not be a good pro as I have said before. He does not do well against taller athletic defenders, which he will face every night in the NBA. The kid can shoot, but so can I! :rolleyes:

Noone ever considered Redick to be a top 5 pick. If hes lucky he will sneak into the lottery. And he will be just fine as a pro....nba players dont play defense. This guy has had teams gameplanning to stop him for the past 2 yrs. His game will be limited to that of a shooter...hes not going to drive past pro athletes, but hes still a great shooter. I havnt seen a guy with a shot like that in my lifetime, its about as good as it gets.

I see alot of people w/ the Steve kerr comparison but Kerr in his 1 year w/ the 3 pt shot in college shot 57% from 3, this year was by far redick's best and he still only shot 42%. Redick will never make any impact in the NBA and will be out of the league w/in 3 years.

I think JJ. Redick and Fred Hoiberg or Dan Dickau makes ok comparisons.. Both can shoot but, each have hard time getting there shot of and playing any kind of defense.. Sometimes I like to think JJ can be Ben Gordon, but I don't see this happening either..
