    Whose crying? He stated facts. I'd have liked the Heels to go further but once Marshall went out that was the last straw. I'd have loved to play the Wildcats once more with a healthy KM and JH, and DS would have been nice. Just like you Dookies this year, you need Kelly back and Curry healthy, without them you guys are thin and it's gonna be a tougher slog. I hope Kelly can get back as he is a Senior and this is not the way you want to end your college career.

    A number 1 seed losing to a number 2 seed is a mild upset. A number 2 seed losing to a number 15 seed is an upset of monumental proportions. In fact, there have been no bigger upset (choke) in the history of the NCAA tournament.

    That one night, Lehigh was better. Just like UNC still had more talent than Kansas, but that one night Kansas was better. That's why they call those types of games "upsets".

    Kelly is not that darn good. 903 is indeed good at excuse making. All I can say is "Lee High"! Dook choked like dogs! And they will do it again this year just like they did vs the wolfers. Pitiful choking things...and the female fans or groupies like 903 are just so fragile....their wittle feelins get hurt and they squall and squeak and then become trolls on other teams sites....Sad really....very sad! Bahaaaa...doook blows! UNC rules!

    Are you saying that without Kelly they were not as good as Lehigh? That's a real stretch, even you you.

    Duke might have been a #2 seed but they were not a #2 seed based on the 2 losses out of their last 3 games going into the tourney after Kelly got hurt. They clearly were a different team with and without Kelly last year and it's no surprise that they are a different team this year with and without Kelly.

    No One. I assume that you are an intelligent individual. Once KM got hurt, UNC was not going to win the NC. The leadership at the most important spot was gone. Set aside your hate and see it for what it was. You know, as much as I do, that the KU game would have been different (I am not saying UNC would have won) with a healthy KM on the floor!

    "Not so much was expected from an overachieving rebuilding Duke team"

    That's why they were a number 2 seed in the tournament. SMH.

    No, the hiney-hurt pain-o-meter registered severe to extreme for the chapel hillians after their preseason champs choked.

    Not so much was expected from an overachieving rebuilding Duke team.

    Great to make the big boy tourney during such years and the high seed was just gravy. Some of the top programs go to the jr. tourney in rebuilding years.

    LOL! Trying to ease the pain of that loss! I am fine with the Heels losing to Kansas. They were up against it with an inexperienced PG and things played out as I thought they would. Dook had no excuse. They had far more talent than Lehigh and should not have lost that game.

    True both teams came up short. The difference is that UNC lost in the elite 8( number 1 seed losing to the number 2 seed) and dook lost in the round of 64 (number 2 seed losing to the number 15 seed). At least dook tied an NCAA tournament record so that is something to celebrate.

    Agreed. Both Duke and UNC came up short last year. So whenever you guys bring Lehigh up to bring us down, we'll bring up Kansas beating Roy's 4 first rounders not including the 5th that wishes he went with them.

    Bottom line is that dook lost to a team that had never won an NCAA tournament game and in the process tied the record for the biggest upset (choke) in the history of the tournament.

    That would have been next to the bottom line.

    Bottom line is the tarholes lost to a Kansas team that had immensely less than 4 first round NBAers.
