NCAABB, Clemson Tigers

Officials grant Duke another victory

So what does that now leave the total count at ... 109? I wouldn't exactly call it a buzzer-beater. Naturally ESPN pushed any skepticism aside and celebrated another victory their Dukies.

Although I've hammered the Tigers a couple times for being frauds after an easy schedule, I concede and agree with the Big Lead in that despite the loss, Clemson proved their worth. They are at the very least fun to watch.

Yeah. I'm totally jealous. I wish ESPN would cover my teams ad nauseam, even when they suck, and I wish my team would get over-seeded every year, so they could play easier opponents, and I wish the refs cheated for my team. That would be great!

I don't like Duke, but you can't blame the team. However ACC officials said they messed up.

Cant blame any of that on the Duke players though, they just dealt with what was given to them, then won in that timeframe

The most annoying thing was Mike Patrick and Len Elmore never question the 4.4 seconds.  As if its actually possibly to catch, square up, shoot, and have the ball go through the net in .6 seconds.  The kid was smart and took his time, apparently all in less than a second.  But on a much brighter side note, assuming Duke doesn't get overseeded (which is almost guaranteed to happen, but this is hypothetical), wouldn't be awesome to see them lose in the 1st round??

What???  ESPN turned a blind eye at something that could've hurt there beloved Duke???  I cant imagine that.  Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to Duke.  It's a shame too, because I think Clemson would've beat them in overtime

Just another entry onto my long list of reasons to hate the Dookies. Did Dook Vitale do the game? He must have squirted if he was there.
