UNC cheated

March 13, 2009

So this picture was taken with 5.2 seconds left in the game, when we were down by only 1 and then Tyler Hansbrough was credited with this “steal”. We then fouled him, made him take two, he took them, and we lose by three.

Again, I don’t know much about basketball and I don’t like it particularly because I feel that everything is a foul and that’s a pansy way to play a sport. But given that those are the rules, HOW IS THIS NOT A FOUL?!?! We may have then scored a basket and won this damn thing, but no, that would take the ACC Championship away from Hansbrough who has worked so hard to get to this point. I’m calling shenanigans. This chance was stolen from us. Real stolen, not commit a foul and call it a steal stolen.
