    Watching Ohio State - Florida on ESPN2 while Duke is winning on the main station. They break into the OSU game for the final seconds of Coach K's win.

    If I wanted to watch that game, I would have watched... Instead I was watching Ohio State and Florida for a reason.

    Then ESPN2 stays with it through a stupid fucking interview.

    Really ESPN, I know you and Duke love each other, but if I wanted to watch, I would have.

    He was there. On the floor among the photographers, on his knees.

    That or he's waiting back at the hotel.

    As mentioned on the other thread, this was an ESPN wet dream come true.

    I wasn't a big fan of the cut into the Duke game...UF was shooting themselves out of the game so I wasn't totally outraged by the change

    It's not enough to power-slurp K on one channel, they have to do it on all of them.

    I think they cut to it on ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Classic.

    And of course it's dominating ESPN.com

    What in the blue hell happened that caused the Kansas-Kentucky game to start an hour late? The schedule I have had an 8 p.m. Central time tipoff. Was it wrong?

    You serious?

    The Duke-Michigan State game ran long, and it didn't help matters that ESPN had a mini-party for Coach K after the game.

    They always do that for some stupid reason. Doubleheader at the Garden and you've got 25 minutes between games. College basketball games typically take about two hours, if not more. Duke-Michigan State didn't start until closer till 5:15 MST. Lots and lots of late fouls pushed the ending closer to 7:25, 7:30 MST. Then all the fellatio for Krzyzewski. Then the confetti and Dukie V had to be cleaned up off the court, the other teams had to warm up. Boom, you've got an 8:08 MST start.

    OSU won by 7 on November 15 ... Coach K became Division I's winningest coach ... Real toss-up there.

    No TV here. And our internet is too piddly to run ESPN3. And now I'm going to have to redesign a page because our deadline is 11 p.m.
