But thereís a system in place to challenge the refs if they mess up like this. Correct me if Iím wrong, but the punishment is a time out of youíre wrong. What was Denver saving the time out for there? I think the DU coach deserves just as much blame for not challenging. I mean, he clearly didnít care about UMass getting rest from a review, he wanted one. Just didnít want to lose his time out? I donít get it.
The NCAA did the right thing afterwards by suspending him. Sucks for his teammates and the fans of the team, but jumping to elbow someone in the head isnít acceptable.
Froma UMass fanís perspective, Vegara or Bozzo is going to be able to dress tonight and they wouldnít have otherwise. Mika is going to get more playing time. I hope they take advantage of this opportunity.
Whatever happens tonight, itís been a hell of a season. Iím really proud to be a UMass alumni, fan, and season ticket holder.
The biggest issue that I would have with calling Duluth a "blue blood" is they only have 13 NCAA Tournament appearances. However, all 13 have come since 1983, and they have capitalized on those opportunities, making the Regional Finals all 13 times, with 7 trips to the Frozen Four and 5 trips to the National Championship game. At the very least, the Bulldogs are on the cusp of "blue blood" status, and I think with a title tonight, they ascend to that status.

Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

Now, just because you reach "blue blood" status doesn't mean it is permanent. For example, only the insane would have argued Tech wasnt a blue blood in 1980. They slipped significantly in the following decades, and now are in that second tier.

And this game is on ESPN2. *sigh*. Bumped by UFC.
Why did they play the canadian national anthem? This is a US national championship.. not an international game!
Maybe itís customary in Buffalo?
Anyone know where the ref crew is from?
