How does it feel?

March 27, 2009

Last night Villanova turned it’s pocket inside out and made Duke hold on to it while ‘Nova walked around. For those of you who haven’t been to prison, that means that Villanova made Duke it’s bitch.

Now let’s look at why this happened:

1. Villanova scored more points than Duke.
2. Villanova played better offense and defense than Duke, overall.
3. Villanova got more rebounds than Duke, offensive and defensive.
4. Duke didn’t get any calls. And rightfully so.

Duke got no cheap calls all game. They traveled and got called for it. They charged and got called for it. They acted like little bitches and almost got called for it.

So this is the true Duke basketball team. When they don’t get the cheap, Duke-only calls, they get their asses handed to them. I had Duke winning this round and losing to Pitt in my bracket, but I’ll be honest: This is the best feeling loss I have ever experienced. Sure it hurt my bracket, but I think it hurt almost everyone else’s bracket too. Sure it drove one of the last nails into the “Big East is better than the ACC” argument coffin. But the simple fact remains, Duke lost. Mike Krzyzhitler is upset and that makes me feel good. Yeah it’s pathetic, but it still feels good. Don’t judge me.

DOUBLE UPDATE: Did anyone else notice Paulus giving a massage in the background? Holy crap, they’re gayer than I thought. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
