When Eric Maynor for VCU came down the court with less than 2 minutes to go and hits the same exact shot, then comes down, gets within the 3 point line, and hits a wide open jumper, well, one has to wonder WHAT THE FUCK was going on there. After the guy made the first two, and then had the ball for the last basket, how does Duke not double him, or at least have someone pop out in an attempt to get him to give up the ball to SOMEONE ELSE?!?!? UNBELIEVABLE! How do you have the short white dude guarding the guy who has been shooting over your 7 footer?
It's my fault for even taking Duke past the first round, but regardless, that what was a complete meltdown from a team that's supposedly coached by a legend. No matter how you spin it, Duke has more talent, more highly recruited players, were higher seeded, had a 10 point lead throughout, and then blew it.
Coach K, like so many others, is a product of the players he gets.

Bush claims he has the right to fire whomever he wants, which is true, I guess. But wouldn't it seem a bit odd if the President were firing attorneys because of their politics? He has no other apparent excuse. I was under the impression that it was illegal to fire someone in the private sector because of their political views, but I could be wrong. Now here's Bush saying it's okay to fire people who enforce the law on behalf of the government that creates laws in the first place, based on their politics?
So confusing when you start adding all the lies together...which I guess is the point of the exercise.

"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune published on Tuesday.In Pace's world so many people agree with him, so it's irrelevant. On some levels it strengthens the Republican base toward the military in a time when the military leadership is fucking up royally. When Pace leaves the military he'll go get some high paying job somewhere, working for people who agree with him. So while people may want him to apologize there's really no reason he ever would.
"I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is okay to be immoral in any way."
Pace was explaining why he supported the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays serving in the military, signed into law in 1993 by then-President Bill Clinton.
Now, if Pace said "I think sex between a white and a black is immoral..." he'd be fired so fast. Just goes to show, Gays, you are lower than second class in the minds of many American leaders. What a country.
The White House suggested two years ago that the Justice Department fire all 93 U.S. attorneys, a proposal that eventually resulted in the dismissals of eight prosecutors last year, according to e-mails and internal documents that the administration will provide to Congress today.
The dismissals took place after President Bush told Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales that he had received complaints that some prosecutors had not energetically pursued voter-fraud investigations, according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.
...The answer: Of course not.
Any other President would have already been removed from office because of countless things this President has done. But in Bush's case there is no standard at all.
