PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
LET'S GO CARDS!! LET'S GO CARDS!!
See, Its tough for me one this one. My mom picked scUM out of a hat in her works pool, so if they win, she gets some good money, but I refuse to root for scUM. Basically, I am rooting for NOT Louisville.
Put it this way:
1) If scUM makes a basket, I will be pissed
2) If scUM misses a basket, I will be pissed
3) If Louisville makes a basket, I will be pissed
4) If Louisville misses a basket, I will be happy.
I was so upset my Mom picked scUM out of a hat, even though it was all random, I was very upset, haha
You forgot anytime they show any former TTUN players in the stands you will be pissed.
I have no horses in the race and I really hate one horse more than the other.
haha, pissed someone off i guess... WOOO!!!!
WHO WATCHES PITINO'S CASTLE IN TRANSYLVANIA WHILE HE'S AT THE GAME?
Definitely thinking about what could have been if OSU showed up in the first half against Wichita...oh well.
"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."
I'll throw out an official "MEH" for tonights game. Good night Buckeyes.
Go Cards! But mostly go to bed...dang this game starts late.
Yeah no kidding. I know that the networks want some extra time to show their regular programming before they show the game, but sheesh, 9:30 is unnecessary.
Put this on Sunday. Seriously
Can't even route for Michigan in this one folks .

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
Because of Twitter I learn that words I thought were nouns can be used as verbs.
It might be auto correct.
Pitino is a scumbag and Michigan is Michigan. That comet had to land in Russia instead of Atlanta, damnit.
I might eat my words at the end of the night, but I just have a feeling that Michigan is better than Louisville. Just a hunch I suppose.
Wow, could have been a goal tend.
TTUN got screwed by the no-call on the goaltending.
I'd much rather hear Gus Johnson and somebody else call the game.
I'm just happy to be here
nice fast paced game so far
Yeah, pretty entertaining.
Too bad TTUN didn't wear their Zubaz unis.
It could have been the battle of the "sleaves".
The Zesta for Michigan is making it rain.
I would root for any other B1G school tonight, but not Michigan. Well maybe not Indiana either.
Meechigan playing outta their mind.
Wayne Woodrow Hayes
Somebody put a body on Spike!
Is it just me, or does Michigan travel (as in their fan attendance) incredibly well? Noticed the same thing about the Outback Bowl. Seems wherever they're at, you're looking at at least 50% Michigan fans in the crowd.
When you have not been relevant for a while there is pent up demand.
yea, noticed the same. good fan base for sure man
Guard this guy!!!
scUM be dropping 3's all day wow
They sure do be. Dammit. DAMMIT!
The world is full of kings & queens who'll blind your eyes & steal your dreams - it's heaven & hell - Ronnie James Dio.
5/8 from 3 they can't keep this up. Right? Right.
I hate this so much!
Jim Nantz is past his prime. Get somebody else.
Ugh, Kellogg, nance and Kerr are recruiting for Michigan.
To be fair, I guess Michigan is making their own recruiting video.
Spike vs. Craft should be good next year...
Insert witty remark
yea man, craft as a senior is a scenario that makes me believe he is going to rock shit for his last year
Siva looks gassed.
damn man, this is a good game so far, no matter who is winning (scUM of course), but still, pretty entertaining.
Did Clark Kellogg seriously just say that? Wow. Just wow. I can't believe he would say that and then turn the knife by saying "and that's coming from a Buckeye".
Clark goes too far the other way.
What the hell?? Guard this kid.
Michigan is going to win because of two kids that did not play all year.
At this rate TTUN is gonna run Louisville out of the gym.
3's are raining down in atlanta
Well at least the Big Ten finally won something.
"You'll be proud of our young people in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the football field."
Is that a positive from a double negative?
It's a reverse jinx, but yes I worded it poorly.
Well I'm rooting for Michigan, Pitino's antics are Crean-esque.
Pitino could smack a Michigan player in the face and then one of his own players and I would still root for him.
wow, good defense by mcgary
Is it just me, or does Pitino have the unnaturally pale look of someone who's been embalmed?
Seriously, he looks creepy.
"This is a very complicated case: a lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what-have-yous."
Great minds think alike! +1
I have been thinking this. What happened to him? Does he have a major illness?
He honestly has that look. I wonder if there's something we don't know.
Even more reason to say, GO CARDS! Win it for your nearly dead or possibly recently-prepared-for-viewing-hours coach!
Pitino needs to go out in the sun and eat a sandwich!
Maybe he is part of the same clan as Bo Ryan?
This is pathetic. Letting Spike go crazy. Good job, Louisville.
Louisville with a slim 4 point lead over Spike Albrecht.
now that is an impressive stat, haha
Basketball gods are Michigan fans tonight. Kids shooting into an ocean.
Hopefully Chris webber gives a halftime speech to Michigan.
Or, should I say William Francis from 15th century England.
Why do they keep showing Burke? What Michigan fan wants to take spike out for him?
Time for a Kevin Ware inspirational halftime speech
Too many timeouts.
"Oh shit, in order to beat Louisville all you have to do is make all of your jumpers. Why didn't we think of that?"
-Every team that played Louisville this season
Why is the floor raised? I know it's supposed to be for sight lines but can anyone explain it?
maybe gives the players a feeling of playing and being on "The Big Stage", above all else. I know they dop that for wrestling championships, All american matches, 1st place matches, etc. Gives more 'prestige', if you will, to the game
A few years ago the NCAA decided that its basketball championships would only be played in stadiums with a capacity of 70k or more and also to be played on raised-floor courts -- I think a direct homage to Minnesota.
Wow, what a push off by Hardaway.
These refs have been awful all tournament. Why change now?
yea, commentators mentioned it earlier, sloppy reffing and a lot of missed calls, easy calls. That goal tending at the beginning of the game was absurd
This game is over! Good Night!
Edit: I spoke to soon!
Nooooo BME go back to what you were doing. You sparked a comeback.
Spike seems sharp tonight...
I laugh because I don't want to cry.
wow, now the 3's are going the other way, kid is on fire
Hancock is killing it
Ok, now this is fun. I like this!
What an oop
I think most of the city of Louisville is in the crowd tonight.
Shit got weird...er, you guys.
Siva almost made that!
what an entertaining half, damn, Louisville closed out strong, gonna set up a strong finish man, dont go to bed yet!!!
It definitely was an entertaining half. Second half will be quite interesting.
"It's a basketball game" thanks, john.
I'm nearly 40 years old and that may be the best half of basketball I have ever seen. Too bad the officials are missing a good game. I hope this game doesn't get tainted by a missed call.
Absolutely, for instance will Haraway ever get called for his offensive foul whenever he drives? He is using his off arm to shove the defender and make room for himself.
At what point does pitino turn back into a bat?
Cards need Batman to fight off Michigans Boy Wonder.
Here's a comforting thought. Kyle Berger. We will finish 1-0 vs scUM on this day.
Sounds like Barkley's laryngitis is coming on two weeks too late...
I think that is a tell tale sign that he needs to scarf down another bearclaw
Why couldn't Barkley end with the Tru TV games?
What do you think about Burke sitting most of the first half? Spike was great on offense but during Louisville's run, he was getting killed on the screens.
Wtf is up with everyone at CBS being all up on Michigan's junk?
If TTUN loses it will definitely be talked about.
If TTUN wins it will be a moot point.
Three wishes for the rest of the night:
1) Michigan loses
2) Van Helsing puts a stake through Pitino's undead heart
3) Charles Barkley completely loses his voice--forever
EDIT: OK, I'll happily take one out of three, but I do think Pitino nearly had a coronary when they set off the fireworks.
Beware, Tom Crean waiting in the wings with a ladder and scissors.
How bad does Creen look? Michigan killed that Cuse zone and it was like someone asked Creen to take IU to Mars.
remember that time....BOBBY BOUCHER SHOWED UP AT HALFTIME AND THE MUD DAWGS WON THE BOURBON BOWL?
Hey Steve, why don't you just put your Michigan cap on? Geez.
He did. Didn't you see him hit 6 3s in the 1st half?
Not one downvote on the entire thread and I get one for this?
At least express your displeasure.
Let me guess ... BuckeyeBoyer
I'll take that as a yes.
Actually it wasn't me. I know we've had beef but I'm over that stuff. I don't DV on threads unless it's really bad.
Edit: just to bury the hatchet I up voted all your comments. Go bucks
Oh no, here comes the tight second half whistles.
Refs, you suck!
This officiating is a joke.
at least it has been consistent...ly awful throughout the entire tournament
I'm going to puke if Michigan wins. And I'm guessing it'll be a similar color to those god awful uniforms.
Timeouts on timeouts on timeouts.
has scUM ran an effective inbounds play underneath the basket yet?
It's hard when you don't have Sam Thompson, right?
I'm waiting for them to call a charge on Syracuse and give both Michigan and Lou some free throws.
What about the animals? What would they be made out of?
was trey Burke the consensus player of the year?
and how did Michigan do so well without him the first half?
They signed John Stockton and he magically showed up in the 1st half.
There's Stockton, #2.
More of a Danny Ainge to me, but I digress.
I like yours better
Either way, I am just happy he is on the bench right now.
welcome to the circus
What the heck is wrong with Russ Smith??
Louisville is just taking circus layups. Dumb.
Louisville has withstood scUm's best punch.
Reminds me of OSU/Kansas game last year. Michigan played lights out first half, but just couldn't pull away.
I get the point but you are doing this game injustice with the comparison.
Aside from not liking Michigan, I really did not care for Louisville, but with that horrible injury to ware, I feel for the kid and his teammates. Just bad luck.
bahanon is cleaning up the weakside glass right now
Have I said this is a hell of a game?
Unless the good guys lose. But yeah, it is great unless that happens.
Trey Burke -- Columbus, Ohio
Chane Behanan -- Cincinnati, Ohio
Ohiooooooooo noooooooo lol.
Don't remind us. A downside to Sully coming to us all the time. We never went out and saw Burke.
Was just gonna mention that. Good call.
Siva komeny wow
Louisville better hope this doesn't go to overtime.
Don't speak it into existence.
Anyone that says college basketball is down should watch this game.
Totally agreed! This is nuts!
True, but I feel like this is not the norm. ESP for this tournament.
You mean Mike and Mike?
Siva siva siva time
Siva is fearless.
Wow. Big counter.
Siva has a little bit of AI in him.
I see kimba walker, but yeah, AI too.
I can see Kimba too not to mention it is a more recent comparison. Good call.
Burke is more Kemba than Siva.
yes but kemba could shoot the 3, I haven't seen siva do that
Someone remind me where Kellogg went to school?
I am hoping it is just B1G love
Group hug for a great game?
Where has Russ Smith been? No factor.
Ask and ye shall receive.
Louisville looks like they are starting to wear down scUM.
From your mouth to gods ears
Haa. I will shut up now!
scUM better be careful here.
nah, they can epically fail. I enjoyed Chris Weber's failed time-out call more than Desmond Howard's Heisman pose.
Another group hug for Hangover III ?
Reach around if scUM loses.
"We've been on a lot of adventures together, but it seems like you haven't learned anything; ANYTHING!"
bo ryan thinks the pace of this game is way too fast.
Deal with it, Bo!
BO had a seizure five minutes ago.
Bo already asleep, still dreaming about his lost soul Bret B.
it feels like peyton siva has been at louisville for like 7 years. He's like the van wilder of college basketball.
I'm sure it feels that way for others with Craft.
Or, the Chris Weinke of college basketball.
Aaron Craft owns the player of the year.
how does um only have 3 fouls this half ? crazy.
Refs will have to even it up. This is good for ville IMO.
The shooting in this game, on both sides, is pretty darn good.
Lets go Cards!
The South will NOT rise again!
Hope Trey is OK.
russ smith is off tonight.
Ville showing class...helping Michigan players up every time.
Trey has been knocked around in this game. A tough OHIO kid.
SIVA GOT UPS!
Wow what a turn of events!
And the answer
Seems like every time ... Both ways.
Hey, does anyone know what time the game starts?
These two teams are definitely leaving it all on the court
Where were these refs in the tourney???
Even it up...
This game is freaking incredible! That was a clean block
Wow that was a great effort by Trey. Looks like it is time to even things up for the Cards.
It makes me sick to say, but no way in hell was that a foul on Burke
Refs missed that one on Trey ... A tear.
that was a pretty block. And a horrible call.
I don't mind :)
TSUN got away with so many fouls that weren't called, so they can suck it.
Class of 2010.
u of l is feeling it right now!
Danger zone ... Again.
I'm sensing an all time great finish...
like the Kansas vs Memphis championship game?
UL forces this pace, and thieves in it.
Dieng went around the world on that one!
They have been tearing it up in the paint.
They go war on those boards don't they?
Come on Cards. Only 434 left till that yellow grunge goes home a loser.again
Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.
I really hope that the fab five came to town to experience another heartbreaker.
Won't have to call a TO with the 3 minutes to check a tenth of a second.
Michigan needs to call some more time outs so they can hit -1 again.
Hancock just put his signature on this one again.
Haha that towel boy took a spill!
That should do it folks. They just don't have any gas left in the tank defensively.
Should have used clock there.
Lets hope that does not haunt
louisville is starting a band called 'Foul Trouble'.
The only thing I keep thinking while watching the is how badly Louisville would have kicked our ass...and how nice it would be to have 4 shooting threats and a post presence. Ahhhhhhh pipe dreams.
They beat Wichita State by 4.
Louisville would not have kicked our ass.
Burke will not pass it the rest of the game.
WOW! That was determination there!
Bahannon is relentless inside!
Burke was selling that one. They have been guarding him hard, but that one was a nice acting job.
refs will not call a foul on UM
You are right tenn. I can't believe it.
They are war eagles on the boards.
What is smith doing???
russ smith, what are you doing?
No 3 sec?
Behanen went airborne there!
Rick Pitino will be portrayed by Robert DeNiro in an upcoming film titled "The back room at Porcini's"
Good timeout Rick!
Bahahaha there are Michigan fans complaining about the refs. It was 10-4 just a few minutes ago - foul calls that is.
You would think that they would be able to handle the press.
Russ Smith is trying to lose this game or something.
Point shaving 30 for 30 now in the works.
Come on Kellogg.
Why are any of the players with 3 or 4 fouls on the floor? Walk ons can foul as well as starters.
This game is so late. NCAA needs to fix this.
Its on par with the finish of the BCS championship. It finished around midnight
But three people on the west coast want to watch.
So true. I'm on Central Time and I still HATE these late games!
I'm up for Fri night final 4 and Sun early evening final.
A la Super Bowl, yes?
Nice waste of time scUM
Sorry UM. It's OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To bad they have so many time outs left!
Group reach around coming.
Even me and BuckeyeBoyer.
There we go!
Did we just see the new Minnesota coach in the stands?
Does pitino retire?
Start preparing your TTUN message board fodder
Cheerleader was so sad
Here come the Michitears!!!!
Great game, Kentucky!
Chris Webber being at the game was bad luck.
Sad UM makes me happy.
Glad for Ware
MICHIGAN STILL SUCKS
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
And that's the way the cookie crumbles. lolz
Haaa I think Pitino just sh!t himself!
Hahaha wtf was that
Pitino was ducking from the explosions going off.
Kentucky fans are burning things. They are so pissed. Meanwhile OSU fans are HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!
also Pitino just shat him self there
Again, does pitino retire?
Eat shit Beilein.
Fail! But remember our cheer:
Fail! But just WAIT 'TIL NEXT YEAR!
Fail! Fail! We Missed-Again!
Forever second best!
Pitino def just pooped his pants
Can Burke and Haradaway go pro, please
Great game Burke (really). Now stick to your intentions and go to the Association and take Hardaway with you too.
and Robinson III
Louisville definitely deserved it and I think TTUN represented the B1G well. Trey was trying his best to will them to a victory.
someone gif Pitino flinching at the confetti explosions
To all of those who cheered for Michigan - how do you feel now?
Word. Couldn't wish for a ring for scUM.
I will never understand the cheering for a conference thing
Who gives a sh*t about the conference's 'perception', especially in basketball.
Second place is the first loser. SCUM!
I thought Indiana was supposed to win it all?????
Creen looked like he was trying to go to the moon against the zone that scUM figured out.
didn't you hear? They already have their net!
Glad the fab five was there to soak it in all over again.
Congrats fellow Buckeye fans! Second best thing to winning it ourselves.
If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. ~ Bruce Lee
The universe is good.
Very well said.
I apologize, I went to hit up vote and missed. Please up vote pope urban to makeup for my error. Thanks.
Good times. Good night.
Am I the only one really excited for "One Shining Moment"?
Some chills-inducing moments by AC and LaQ are sure to be a part of it.
As well as AACC's tears. Delicious.
Did scUM save 1 time out?
UM suffers 2 losses today. Berger to the Good Guys and a National Runner-Up to U of L tonight.
Life is good. Coach Meyer is killing it and we watch Michigan lose; definition of win win!
Quick Rick ... Ask me why.
Kentucky hates this. I love it.
No Mark Emmert, I will not congratulate M!chigan...
Yeah, go investigate the SEC, asshole.
Now all those cut the net scum shirts can be sent overseas!
I want one ...
Pitino is getting a tattoo?....somebody call Dohrmann.
I have been known on occasion to howl at the moon. - Crash Davis
Do you mean Pulitzer prize winner George Dohrman? Ooh.
I heard Pitino rigs camp raffles too.
That's light for his mafia days.
One shining time out ...

That's the Italian in him ...
Sammy the Bull says you will shut up if you know what's good for you.
"It all goes so fast, and character makes the difference when it's close."
that is actually funny as hell, hahaha
I know he may play for the enemy, but damn...trey burke showed some serious heart tonight. Took a beating and kept on coming. Behanan looked good too...a lot to be said about ohio ballers. Whole lot of heart.
I agee Burke was trying so hard to will his team to victory. Behanan was just a monster inside in the second half.
Hey Beilein, give kudos to Kentucky.
Where's Q??? Cold blooded.
Agreed! One Shining Moment was awesome, EXCEPT they dissed Q's "cold-blooded" 3!
Was I happy to see Louisville beat scUM?
I was going to type something less than classy, but this picture sums it up for me.
. A single tear shed for the skunk bears
Now back to your regularly scheduled laughter at scUM
For all those people saying that were rooting for tsun, you have to admit to enjoying the michigan tears!!
How did tOSU not land Burke? Just curious.
What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.
I figured it out, Shannon Scott...
I went old school and was channeling the 90's:
"There is a force that makes us all brothers, no one goes his way alone." --Woody Hayes
I slept well last night, knowing Louisville won the big game. I'll give some credit to the scUM; they went a lot farther in the Dance than I thought they would. They got hot when they needed to. Now will everyone come back for next year or will they lose Burke, Hardaway and someone like McGary, who played well in the NCAA?
