For any foul call down low for the zags it took 2 cuse guys absolutely mugging Sabonis... Looking at playstyles and how the game shaped out the free throw difference makes no sense.. We shot 5? NCAA love affair with cuse. They cheat and coach gets suspended for a bit. But a 10th place league finish and they are back in the tourney on their way to the elite 8! Wooooo

Congrats to Cuse. A win is a win, but damn, some of this calls or lack thereof…ridiculous.

Zag TO's was the difference.

Interesting call by Few to go with Silas instead of Eric the entire 2nd half.

Not sure if that was the right move…

Fun ride, great run, terrific season!

EMAC single handly let Cuse back in the game before half .. Instead of a 7 point game at half, it was 1.

Cuse earned the win, we had too many turnovers, and McClellan had one of the worst games of his career. I know it's a hard time but you gotta give their D respect and acknowledge the ways in which we threw the game away. Yeah they could have put sabonis on the foul line more. But they botched a call and gave us a chance to win at the end. Proud of the zags but they blew it. Cuse deserved the win. Grats. Go zags.

Oh I didn't know you can follow through and slap the arm. My bad, I apologize. Just like fouls on 3 point shooters who release and get arm slapped after.... Its a foul.

It's a little silly to base your opinion of a fanbase on the internet posts of a few fans, no? Syracuse fans could just as easily pick out a few Gonzaga fans here who came across as a cocky. There are always going to be some sore losers and sore winners. Both fanbases felt disrespected going into the game for different reasons. That doesn't change the fact that the majority of fans from each team would probably agree that it was a great game and either team would have earned the W.

As for the officiating comments, they're to be expected after a close loss where one team shot triple the FT's of the other team, but I know you guys must be better than that. Syracuse primarily shot more FTs because they attacked the rim much much more. Gonzaga was either shooting jumpers or getting the ball to Sabonis in the post; there weren't many drives from the perimeter which is where a lot of shooting fouls come into play. That said, I'll concede that Sabonis could have gotten a few more calls (not to the extent I've seen expressed here), but not without also pointing out that it went both ways. Roberson got banged up pretty good without getting many calls. Sabonis got a call to go against Lydon on a massive flop. Syracuse got screwed on the OOB call near the end. The list could go on and on, back and forth. I thought the refs did a good job of letting the players play.

It's a shame you feel that way. East coast attitudes and west coast attitudes are obviously much different, but that's not unique to New York or Syracuse. If you're basing the remainder of your opinion on the comments section of ESPN or other sites then I'd say that's a mistake. If you're referencing the Syracusefan site, we're probably talking about a misunderstanding of the 'style' - for lack of a better word - of the message board. Sarcasm and hyperbole reign supreme there, where this board seems, from my very limited experience, to be a bit more serious. Some posters over there were also retaliating to some of the not so nice stuff posted here, especially the thread that quoted many of the Syracusefan posts like bulletin board material. The posts quoted weren't exactly a representative example, in my opinion, and some were taken out of context (going back to the sarcasm and hyperbole reference).

I didn't play in HS due to other reasons but I play all over in the summer in tournaments and rec league most the time. I watch hoops a lot.

Why you ask?

Reggie Miller has played more hoops than most

you say he was confused....You must have more experience

I ignored you in game discussion. I'm not gonna ignore you here. Are you a Neanderthal? You just carry a stick and grunt?

You realize I was agreeing with you right? You realize Reggie was confused on the foul? You realize I and him thought that call was garbage.

Instead of being defensive, you should actually read what you write and then that person writes. You belong in the Syracuse forum.

I and him........and you call me Neanderthal........you call Reggie out for being confused and you agree with him?

What's not to understand?

Don't care don't bother explaining. Please ignore like before.

we lost a close one
we lost a lot of close ones this season
it was not because the officials are against us
or even because they were outlandishly uneven in their calls.
The refs set standards for play and should stick by them, the teams
get used to it - tonight the refs let em play, just like the refs at BYU let Domas get whacked too much.
But losing close games has dozens of 'what if' blames and regrets.
Each player can think of a play or two he did differently where the zags would have won.
We fans blame the officials, like the losing team often does. It sounds hollow. Over time, unless the refs are crooked, the calls even out. Nearly all refs are trying to be objective and professional and its easy to make mistakes; they are human.

Great teams and athletes know you have to win by enough to take the variation in ref's calls not lethal.
On this board, we are not what some Orange fans call us.
We are what we put out.
Tonight some of us were hurling disrespectful comments and I haven't seen that very much over the years.
I suppose on the very night we lost a close one, some venting can be expected ...

It was a tough loss. It fits in with 02, 05, 06. We score 3 points in final 7 minutes and its a win. We as fans either blame a) refs b) players c) coaches or d) all of the above.

Tonight we didn't lose to the better team in the tournament like other years. We were the better team. The turnovers and free throws killed us. You cut the turnovers off by 2-3 we win or if they shoot 70% from line we win. I feel like after the emotions subsided and moved into depression it was just meant to be.

This year went from final 4 to Shem out and us missing dance to sw16! I felt like we could hang with Virginia but it doesn't matter now.

you really thought this was a final 4 team??? never felt that way even with karno...guards just not good enough...the way they played at the end of the season already exceeded my expectations, though they regressed against the cuse zone...

Thanks for being a bunch of classy posters for the most part over here. You guys had a really good team. If Sabonis returns, this team should be pretty great.

It seemed that Boeheim put the focus on trying to swarm Sabonis. Haven't seen us double/triple team someone like that in a long time now.

Best of luck to you guys next year, unless of course we meet again!

(And again, I apologize for any of the Syracuse fans that didn't show much class over here).

You must not watch much CBB. I thought Gonz got away with a bunch of no-call blocks in the second half, and the line call at the end of the game was inexcusable - thankfully it didn't affect the outcome.


worst officiating i've ever seen.

been on this board since 2003, and never said that til today.

SMH.

Congrats to Cuse. A win is a win, but damn, some of this calls or lack thereof…ridiculous.

Zag TO's was the difference.

Interesting call by Few to go with Silas instead of Eric the entire 2nd half.

Not sure if that was the right move…

Fun ride, great run, terrific season!

'Cuse doesn't deserve this as much as we gave it to them. They know that in their hearts of hearts, but doesn't matter.

Yea and #23 got away with pushoffs and carrying the ball. Plus your guy who blocked Perkins was a foul. You can't follow through and slap the arm. Its a foul. If you go straight up it isn't a foul but he didn't.

99% wouldn't of shown if they lost. I could care less for any team in hoops but my zags. People are better winners then losers. Most people are front runners in this world. It is how we pick ourselves up. I'm proud of this team and coaching staff. I'm upset as we are better then Cuse IMHO.

Good job zags and few!

Exactly. Spot on 11.

Only zags! 365

I'm of the opinion that these congratulating the opposition threads don't belong here. Go over to their board if you want to be all nicey nice. Eff the Cuse and their cheating coach!

I'm with you on this Birddog.......well at least the part about going over to their board and play nice. I don't have the same animosity towards Coach B as you seem to have.

I question if Cuse should even be in the field, IMO they should not have been there at all, they where gifted on name alone. I felt we where the better team on the floor. So i can not congratulate Cuse as i feel they are not legitimate. they have not been playing good all season, and that suspension their head coach had; it should have disqualified them from the tournament.

Hell they where caught cheating and have been HIGHLY rewarded for it!

i went back watched a couple of their earlier games, and guess what, that team gets away with murder in the games i watched, it was unreal the blatant calls in there favor. no respect to that team, no respect for that "fan"base from me. and NO congratulations to them, they where given on a silver platter that game. they have not earned anything.

At some point things have to change with the powers that be, Cuse to me represents the corruption and bias in sports unchecked. They did not win the game, it was given to them.
