    Yikes... that probably sums up the Louisville fanbase and student body.

    Do like how even he mentioned the refs. They know. Oh they know...

    So you are saying the NATL championship was fixed? It really did look like they wanted Pitino to win. I actually like both Louisville and Michigan and I can see where you are coming from. Siva should have fouled out with 10 minutes left to go in the game but the refs swallowed the whistle. However when siva was cleanly blocked on a fast break, he's at the line shooting free throws. Your claims have merit but what are you going to do?

    The same type of officiating went on in the Western Kentucky/Kansas game, I wonder if some of the officials were in that game. It was a close game at half time then in the 2nd half... they stopped calling fouls on Kansas and Western Kentucky couldn't as much breathe on the guys they were defending and Kansas was at the line.

    ^ Yeah that was a terrible missed call, but the refs missed calls on the other side, too. Are people really saying the game was fixed? Louisville was called for far more fouls than Michigan. Wasn't Michigan in the double bonus with something like 6 minutes left in the game? Louisville didn't even get into bonus opportunity until under a minute to go.

    You can look at the end of the Wichita State and see how the refs gave that one to Louisville. That tie up at the end of the game is quickest Jump Ball call I've ever seen in my life. It was literally half a second... Yet in the Michigan/UL game, one of the very first plays of the game, the players are tied up with the ball for a good 4 seconds before jump ball is called.

    So if you wanna say they gave it to Louisville.. potentially because Louisville KY has the highest college basketball ratings in the nation for 10+ years, that might be why?

    I feel like Michigan lost due to poor coaching. Clock management the last few minutes was terrible. They gave away at least 2 minutes. They also stopped passing in the 2nd half and tried to do way too much 1 on 1 stuff, and Beilein never made adjustments.
