Tip off 910 EDT CBS tv
Go UConn, Destroy Them.
My son is there. I love “thump thump” the last 2 minutes of the final game. I pull for— well never mind.
Gee, I hope they will be able to eat.
Why such a late start? Kids in CT and KY will get to bed way too late.
Which team will have that One Shining Moment? I pick Kentucky in a close game.
Watch for Ryan Boatright to put the screws to UK’s guards.
Heres why this household is going for UCONN:
In a moment of inexplicable inattention to standards, UCONN awarded me an MBA.
My wife once lived just down the road from Calipari when he was at UMASS. He was not a good neighbor
My step-daughter graduates from UCONN in May
UCONN is the only school ever to win both men’s and women’s NCAA Div I basketball championships in the same year in 2004. They just might do it again ths year.
Any way they can both lose? Then again; I despise anything from Connecticut.
Kid Rock singin I WAS BORN FREE in Texas......that’s big !!!
You guys can all watch with Obama. Bread and circus...
get your ass outta here...this is a sports thread ...period !
and we wonder what is wrong with this country...
UConn's Napier has the exspericence.
Many consider Calipari a good recruiter but not a good coach.
I predict UConn by 5.
yeah, let’s see how that plays...you dissed everyone here
Can’t a man not enjoy a sporting event and still care and be concern about the direction of the country? Sheesh!!! What if someone told you that whatever YOU enjoy is doing nothing for the betterment of this country? I’ll bet you would get all upset
This Bama fan will be pulling for the Wildcats.
(I'm just here for the chicks)
Fixed and ditto.
UConn in an amazingly easy game.
wow ... great game
I just noticed when they go to commercial the score ticker at the bottom of the tv screen enlarges and I don’t need to use the binoculars to read it from my desk across the room.
I have 2 pair of glasses...one to read up close and one to watch tv....had em both on to see the script.....
Since UNC isn’t in the hunt, promised to cheer for a UK win. Go ‘cats!
Listening on radio in Germany...
Go Big Blue!!!!
BBN has gone international!
howdy Germany..so glad you are able to enjoy it
Speaking of Germany, I didn’t realize that Dirk Nowitzki would have played for UK, if he didn’t go straight into the NBA.
Wondering, are you there for a trade show?
It’s not too late to root for the SEC.
As a Spartan, this is a very frustrating game to watch.
Nope, can’t do it. After the way UK was cutting down the Gators after they lost.
hat tip on Boatright
I missed that. Most UK fans in my acquaintance thought you guys were the better team and just finally had an uncharacteristic bad day on Saturday.
I can live with that outcome. Congrats to the Huskies.
Great for UCONN and the coach.
Boatright came up big.
And UConn wins it all
Congratulations to the huskies. Now it’s the womens turn tomorrow night.
As a New Englander I was cheering for UConn, good for them! Meanwhile Tony Massaroti of Boston’s 98.5 the Sports Hub was cheering for UConn to lose both games:
(CBS Boston):”Marc Bertrand opened the conversation stating how wonderful this tournament has been from start to finish, which led Mazz into a tangent about his hatred for UConn and all things Nutmeg State.
Just because Im in New England doesnt mean I have to root for Connecticut, which isnt part of New England anyway as we all know. Tonight and tomorrow night I hope Connecticut goes down like a pack of wild boars. I hope they lose both the men and the women, said Mazz. I hope they get smoked by Kentucky in this game.
Im not a UConn person. Its partly the state, its partly the school. Ive got a predisposition against the state to begin with. They allege themselves to be New Englanders but theyre really not. Theyre more like New Yorkers, and theyre snobby to begin with....”
UConn men WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations! You guys deserve it.
Hopefully the women will do their part tomorrow night.
Congratulations to all of us. UCONN great job!
UCONN grad in Japan . Couldn’t watch but listened via Westwood Radio online . Sure would like to see the game . Maybe someone DVD’d it ?
They’ll be a lot of happy Africans wearing “University of Kentucky 2014 National Champions” T-Shirts.
Kentucky should get down I mean they have 5 freshmen starters so next year they’ll be really....ok....yeah....never mind.
Wow,,,, I didn’t know that. Imagine the impact he would have had.
