Tulane absolutely robbed…made late rally and took lead over Florida Atlantic….FAU shoots long shot at buzzer and ref calls a 3 shot foul on perfect defense. Terrible.

Fans ready to flood the court snd all had to run back to their seats.

Pitt has been a big struggle bus in ACC games just won at Duke

Last 31 seconds took 18 minutes as the refs reviewed an in bounds play given to Pitt….after 6 actual minutes of review where during said review after 4 minutes they went and told Scheyer it was going to be Pitt’s ball and then reds went back 2 more minutes and gave ball to Duke. Then moron Duke player up 4 fouls a 3 point shot with 4.8 seconds

Hinson for Duke was 7 for 7 from 3 and after win jumped up on table in front of Duke students and yelled stuff…numerous Duke students on camera just flipping him off everywhere lol

I don’t condone this behavior but 🤷🏻‍♂️

A lot of middle fingers not delayed out by the ACC Network

The #18 women’s team beating the #2 team warrants a court storming?

USC men’s team is bad but imagine if they got stormed with Bronny James on the court.

Alabama is up by 4 on Auburn. Auburn’s final possession the ball appears to go out of bounds as time expired. But wait hold on stop the celebration we need to review and put 0.5 back on the clock, for a four point game. What’s the point 🙄

Can anyone answer me with just why the pussies at Texas seem to think their "Horns Up" gesture is something sacred and mocking it in any way is possibly the worst thing a human being can do?

Just in the last couple weeks, the team's coach cried at UCF players for flashing "Horns Down" after a game and the BYU student section had to remove "Horns Down" shirts at a home game. Granted, the latter of the two probably is more on BYU for being stupid Mormons who think having fun is a sin, but it does seem at times like people act like it should be a crime to mock Texas and mess with their precious hand signal.

It’s dumb…..leave it be.

Not real clever by student sections but since it gets under their skin so much, will keep hapo

Solid day today. Houston at Kansas, Duke at UNC, Tennessee at Kentucky. All in the top ten as of right now.

In lesser NIT-like action I’ll be at the Pitt/Notre Dame game

I think Purdue is the team to beat. A lot of experience on that team and it’s damn hard to stop Edey.

I’m not surprised Arenas got this wrong because he’s a moron but Swoopes should know better. Clark is a true senior, she never had a Covid year.

Question for you guys


I was at the 45th biggest college game of the weekend

Pitt -9.5 over ND

126.5 O/U

This game means little, can’t be a big betting game but the over seemed like an absolute no doubter.

Neither team could shoot for shit the first half until Pitt got hot last 2 min….50 total points in first half. Second half Pitt pulled away a bit, game in hand. ND kept getting phantom nothing calls resulting in 2 free throws, didn’t seem a big deal just seemed like bad officiating a bit.

Late in the game Pitt is up 13 with 45 seconds and ND missed a 3 and Pitt grabs the rebound….ND fouls…Pitt up 70-55. ND scores with 29 seconds to make it 70-57 and the over finally made it (seemed to have a bit of help)….then Pitt inbounding ball and ND in full court pressure??? Pitt inbounds and dribbles down d sideline and gets knocked out of bounds….refs call Pitt out? ND hits a 3 with 17 seconds to make it 70-60 and the -9.5 in danger, then ND lets them dribble it out.

It was weird and felt like the officials were in on something on both parts and ND gave in 1 possession late.

If 2nd half was called similar to first half there is no way in hell they get the over.


You think these officials are aware of the Vegas lines in these games?

Who knows about the refs but it’d be fucking irritating if a team was still fouling/pressing down 13 with less than a minute left. 

This is a hot take and I’ll die on this hill but I think they should reduce how many time outs each team has. There was a sequence yesterday where the Lakers called a timeout, come out of it and Lebron missed a shot that went out of bounds, then the Knicks called a timeout. 8 seconds had run off the clock.

No hot take at all


When Pitt beat Duke it took 19 minutes of life to finish the last 29 seconds of the game.

Close games with the big shots seem to take 10+ min for the last minute of the game. It’s the basketball version of baseball closers in a tight game late….enter pitch clock
