    No Duke fans bitching about the no-call at the end?

    Gotta hand it to them...they don’t cry about officiating nearly as much as some.

    Then again, I’m not sure they’ve had a presence at all since the game.

    We aren’t UNc fans who have never lost a game because the other team was better.

    A 1 seed.

    If they lose again it will be the 1, 1 spot.

    They don't play good basketball. The refs can't totally take over! Geeze.

    Haha...

    You should probably provide evidence other than occasional footage seen by your biased eyes.

    Somebody compiled numbers a few years back which showed that Duke indeed has easily the largest foul disparity of the big programs. But Kentucky was also higher than KU.

    I was talking about one particular play that decided the game. The internet would have collapsed if it happened to you guys. No use denying it. It would be declared conclusive proof that the NCAA hates Kentucky.

    But if the refs were so for Duke, wouldn’t they make more calls to give Duke the advantage even when playing bad?

    Yeah. Some fans bitch about calls a lot more than others. Thought that was clear.

    How many titles does Kentucky have if refs called their games fairly? It shoes how talented they were to over come them with 8 titles.

    Crazy you guys (UL) lost to UK....and every ACC team that's played UK this season (2-0).

    But neither your post or Jones' can explain why a team lost 3 of the last 4 and not dropped a spot.

    3rd place in the SEC has NINE (9) losses in the regular season. Yes, it does suck. Sorry. Never said the ACC was good, but the SEC is not good. Otherwise the Evansville loss wouldn't be hurting Uk's computer ranking so much because the quality SEC wins would make up for that. That's the problem. Really not hard to figure out.

    Why are you still talking about the SEC. Duke lost 3 of the last 4 and not dropped. What does that have to do with the SEC?

    I responded to a tweet where Matty Jones compared Duke to UK, which is in the SEC and gave a solid reasoning as to why they have remained where they are. Do I agree with it? Absolutely not. But what I said is likely why. The NET metric doesn't like the SEC, for good reason. Duke's win against KU is holding them up so high as well.

    I don’t like how results in early November matter as much as games in February. I hope FSU gets another shot at Duke in the ACCT.

    That is a far better argument than Louisville fans can make. :)

    Louisville lost to Kentucky, that horrible SEC team.
