    Tonight's game...

    I LOVE college basketball. I always get a little depressed at this time of year as a sports fan since I really don't like baseball much and football is still a long ways away (especially this off-season).

    With that being written, this championship game was just brutal to watch. I think it set college basketball back by two decades. Just plain ugly.

    I was cheering for Butler, but I can't be too upset about them losing. When you can't even shoot 20% from the field you don't deserve to win. I do think that VCU-Kentucky would have been much more entertaining.

    Sad that it had to be UCONN/Calhoun to win the title, but Butler absolutely deserved to lose with the way they played tonight.

    It's going to be a long offseason. Especially with how much I'm looking forward to basketball season.

    Pretty sure that's the first (and probably will be only) National Championship game that I'll ever fall asleep watching. Such poor performances from both teams, but I guess someone's gotta win...

    Re: Tonight's game...

    I watched the Fantasy Factory on MTV during the second half instead. Once that was over, I turned back to the game and both teams had scored about 5 points. I didn't miss much.

    I know it was a horrible game when I had more fun watching the 4 minutes of "One Shining Moment" than I did watching 40 minutes of basketball.

    Thats always one of my favorite parts. And I'm glad that girl didn't do it again and its back to Luther Vandross.

    If the refs hadn't given all the calls in the Butler/VCU game to Butler, Butler wouldn't have been there. Look at the first half tonight. butler again got all calls and it was ridiculous. Officiating helped Butler on thier way whether you want to hear that or not.

    And it robbed us from Kemba vs Jamie Skeen which would have been a hell of a matchup

    That was truly a rough one.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I love basketball and I found myself channel surfing. I'm trying to think of a less entertaining championship game and can't think of one.
