    that will teach me to give up before the final whistle

    I was on a mini vacation in ocean city and happened to catch the last 11 minutes of the game from my hotel room. with about 1:00? left kane got blocked and naz missed a wide open three then we fouled someone. i got really ****** off and didn't want the game to ruin the rest of the day so i just chalked it up as a loss and tried to forget about it.

    didn't find out we won until i got back to wv early this afternoon. what a great surprise! but i missed one of the more exciting games in recent cyclone history because of it.

    for the record though, i have never left a cyclone game early. this was perhaps my first time even leaving the TV early.

    such a quitter. I hang my head in shame (but with a smile for the win).

    I think the people who left early to beat the rush probably feel worse than you do. So you have that going for you at least!

    So many people standing around the concourse yesterday. Would they not let them back to their seats?

    They just didn't want to go back to their seats.

    Pretty much did the same thing. I turned it off when Keaton Paige 2.0 was fouled with 5 seconds left.

    I didn't realize we won until much later that evening when I saw the ESPN ticker. Luckily I had recorded the game, so I was able to go back and watch the whole thing.

    Talk about a swing of emotions!

    If you have it DVR'd or can watch the replay it is funny. Right after the shot the crowd is going crazy. They pan one side and then go to a student section end. There is a girl in her coat running back down the steps to her seat. She obviously left too soon!

    Re: that will teach me to give up before the final whistle

    I was out of town and just caught the first half play by play and the last minute of o.t. Told my wife that I was going to watch this when we get back home and she told me that she didn't know that I really wanted to dvr this game since we thought that we were going to be home in time for it so she took the record off of the dvr! Wasn't very happy when she told me this - as you can imagine.


    Cyclone fan since 1964 and proud of it!

    On another note, anybody notice Forte during the final play. For some reason he copies Naz and basically jumps at the exact same time like he is going to shoot the ball, but he's about 10 ft behind Naz.

    saw that too. he probably just saw the "shooters rhythm" and his body just reacted as if he were taking the shot. there are a lot of times when i am watching sports on tv and as a player is about to explode into a move, shot, tackle, etc. my leg or arm will twitch as if i am the one playing.

    I want the people that left hilton too soon to identify themselves and take their public flogging like they deserve. There was many.

    I didn't turn it off but mentally I was sure it was over.

    Re: that will teach me to give up before the final whistle

    I regret to say I did the same. My wife was working and called and asked if I could bring her something after the game was over. I thought it was over, for all intents and purposes, so I shut off the TV and left. When I got there she said,"Did you hear they're in OT?"

    To make matters worse, my DirecTV box had been acting a little flaky so I hit the red reset button before I left, so it stopped recording!

    I couldn't watch live and had it on fast forward for the last minute or two...luckily I didn't just turn it off entirely (the thought was in my head).

    My daughter wasn't feeling well so got a chance to do the relaxing in bed while watching the game thing. I woke her up with my reaction to Naz's 3.

    I felt bad, but only a little.
