Ever since I became a sports fan I have detested North Carolina basketball. There was a time (before moving to Maryland) when I was actually a Duke fan because of that rivalry. Since the phrase came into use from the movies I have always called them the evil empire. And their recent long-time history of academic cheating certainly has  not improved my opinion of them.

 

This is I think the first NCAA final since the Terps won it that I felt like I had a serious rooting interest. I hope 'Nova runs away with this one.

Go NOVA. UNC should be under sanctions anyway.

Nova is going to have their hands full, but I think if they can play solid defense in the paint, and stay hot shooting, they'll win this one easily.


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

I believe Nova has at least four local kids on team if I'm not mistaken. So, I'll root for Nova either though I hate most Philly sports teams.

One of the all time greatest games! NC shoots lights out from downtown and takes it to the wire, only to be crushed by one of the all time clutch shots. WOW!

That was one awesome game, and the outcome was as I'd hoped. But allow me to complain about having to watch the North Carolina home team broadcast. Even the "One Shining Moment" compilation was all NC. That just sucks. I don't feel sorry for them AT ALL.

Congratulations to Villanova. What a great effort and hanging tough in the clutch. They deserve the championship.
