Wonder where Mr. TD is. Doubt he is saying his unoriginal go to catchphrase, "How sweet it is!!!"

I was wondering the same thing.

He also needs to change his avatar again.

Where would winthrop be if marshall never left. Dude can recruit, dude can coach.

The guy actually is not a stellar recruiter. He recruits a ton of JUCOs and transfers. You can put together a spectacular team doing this, but it is damn near impossible to maintain success doing this because you are constantly dealing with turnover. This is what doomed Lutz at Charlotte.

Marshall is an awesome X's and O's coach, but his recruiting is so-so. I'm sure it is difficult to recruit players to Wichita though. When he moves on to a bigger program, I doubt he'll have any issues.

I know there has been complaining about the officiating throughout the tournament. College basketball in general has been getting worse and worse with inconsistent officiating.

I hate to admit it but, I commiserate with UNC fans about Kansas...

I remember last year's Sweet 16 game NC State played against Kansas. Jeff Withey had 10 BLOCKS and 2 FOULS; he hacked us inside all game long and they never blew the whistle. I hate that guy.

By that logic,how about all those games where Zeller and Henson would have 3 or 4 blocks each and only 2 or 3 fouls between them. The whole point is if you are really watching the games, about 99% of the time there are bad calls both ways. When the point is brought up about ref's being the reason you lost the game, that is like saying the refs favored the other team. I think most people would agree the refs have been consistently bad, no matter who the team is.

Plus Withey only fouled out of 1 game this year and he averaged 4 blocks per game and 2 fouls per game so maybe the guy is just good defensively.

Blaming the officiating is a little short sighted in my opinion.

I think the evolution of the offensive game, speed, and athleticism by these players coupled with the fact that many of these coaches don't teach proper defense are the reasons so many fouls are called.

Most of these coaches are just sales guys (recruiters) now. The true teaching of the game and how to play good defense is being erased on a yearly basis.

Iowa St. has a legit gripe with that charge call as well.

Forgot about that one, officiating in general has been terrible during the tourney....

Just because there are bad calls each way doesnt mean that everything is even. I realize this is hard for you to understand as a Duke fan, but sometimes teams get screwed by the refs. poo happens, you move on

I agree that people complaining about the refs can get obnoxious, but I find your snarky replies whenever someone calls out shitty officiating quite obnoxious; it is what it is

I just don't understand all the complaining about the calls, unc fans included. There were multiple unc fans complaining about calls during the game, you guys need to man up. How about you ask other ACC schools and fans of those schools if unc gets shafted on calls. Yes there are bad calls in every game, it's going to happen you just deal with it. I don't think I've seen any Duke fans on here complain about officiating and want to blame loses on it. I thought the Duke vs. UVA game was terribly officiated and one of the worst I had seen in a while but I didn't get on here and complain or blame Duke losing on it. Sometimes you get the calls, Duke and unc more often, but sometimes you don't and I find it comical when any unc fan complains about officiating or blames a loss on the refs.

Well this week end two games were potentially altered by poor officiating. In that sense its ok the complain. I hate it when they let guys pound each other under the rim, but then call a hand check across the court away from the ball. It need to be consistent. If they call it tight then stay tight.

Did you watch the State/Temple game? If you didn't watch the game then don't give me this auto-response about how complaining about officiating is cheap.

I wouldn't blame the loss on officiating, but at the end of a game when a team is within 1 or 2 possessions and there are a string of awful calls you cannot say that it didn't affect the outcome.
