    Same. I was right in line with the basket on the side, 15 rows up from the court. I can’t go back and watch. Hurts.

    One other thing I had forgotten about this game. If you watch the game, notice the wide shots from high in the stadium that they often used coming out of commercial breaks. You'll see the student sections behind the baskets are full--except for one. UConn had almost no students in its student section. (Not saying this was the reason, but UConn women were playing at the women's Final Four at the same time.) When UConn made it to the finals, someone (the NCAA, I assume, or maybe UConn) went to local universities and gave away tickets for students to come and wear UConn gear and sit in the UConn student section for the finals.

    There’s nothing else on. Plus, while I get it sucks watching a national title loss, you still get to see the Bulldogs play. Or, you could be a Xavier fan hoping to get a glimpse of one of their two regional finals losses. At least they got to the championship game (and it was a damn good game).

    What sucks is on both the title runs we seldom if ever shot the ball well (not even thinking about the UCONN debacle). If we had a 40% or better night in either title game we would have won. We dominated on the defensive side.

    Welp, I’ve decided to re-watch the 2010 National Championship game for the first time since being there.

    It took me 5 or so years to watch the Duke game. I’ve seen it a dozen or so times since. It still hurts every time.

    The UCONN game is the one I can’t bring myself to watch. Doubt I ever will.

    Watching this is just pissing me off. There were so many things about this game that suggests we deserved to win. All the misses in close by Howard, and another by Mack early on. Duke getting away with travels and fouls all over the place.

    Two of Howard's first 3 fouls were complete BS.

    What is probably the most annoying thing about this game that I had forgotten about (minus Singler's face) is Nantz saying NORAD every time. Like nails on a chalkboard.

    I had forgotten all Butler's missed open looks. Oh what could have been, it wasn't meant to be.

    I haven't watched it yet but I believe Mack was out a lot during this GM due to cramps. If he plays his normal amount maybe we win

    Trying to trudge through this.

    When you already know the margin for error on how close this game was at the end, every little thing stands out.

    Missed open looks, missed free throws, bad fouls back and forth, forced shots, etc. Duke's size was an issue, but how and the hell did Zoubek not foul out?
