The NBA is hardly any different, you are just pissed that Miami lost so you are taking it out of college bball as a whole
No way you start this thread if Miami makes the Final 4
Bottom line is basketball in this country as a whole has changed drastically over the last 10 years, and some feel its better and some feel its worse.... on both levels
I for one can't watch either the NBA or College, they both suck to me
And what the hell is going on with uniforms today in basketball ? good god, they need to curb that shit

How? All ratings tell you is that people (hopefully a lot of people) watched your show/event/whatever. It speaks nothing for the quality of your product, just that people watched it. And, according to the data, in 2012 (excluding the NFL and the Olympics), the top 3 most watched/rated sporting events in the U.S. were:
1 Mon., 1/9/12 NCAAF: BCS Champ. Alabama/LSU ESPN 14.0 24.2M
2 Mon., 4/3/12 NCAAB: Final Four Kentucky/Kansas CBS 12.3 20.9M
3 Thu., 6/21/12 NBA: NBA Finals Thunder/Heat G5 ABC 10.9 18.4M
Looks like more people like CBB than you give them credit for.
Turnovers and bricks are what I see when I watch a quarter of NBA games on friday nights. Sorry.
Sorry you turned on those particular games. There have been 60 other tournament games you could've chosen to watch.
I honestly don't care about Miami bball ive always hated college bball b/c of the sloppy play and brick fests..

Of course there are horrible games at the college level, but that also happens in the NBA and high school. It's not unique to one level of the sport.
I'm not going to name every game i watched that i thought was horrible I'd be here forever, I haven't watched one game all tourney that I thought was good basketball..
For somebody who claims to hate college basketball you sure seem to watch it a bunch
The NBA is a brick, foul, and turnover fest
They both suck for different reasons
I haven't watched a reg game all year, I only watched the tourney b/c i had money on it thru an office pool..
Watching the Denver Nuggets play basketball is a pleasure to watch and is so fun and entertaining..
So basically all of the people against college basketball in this thread have proved thoroughly that they don't watch or understand what makes collee basketball great to other people yet have all the answers for why it sucks.
It's subjective. Deal with that. Stop talking about your opinions as if they are facts.
Y would i lie lol?
I'll just leave this here. Oddly enough they share the same opinions as I do. Selfish players, uninspired play, sterile nba arenas.
The 24 second shot clock and longer amount of playing time in the nba allows guys to turn it over more and just throw up fade aways because in 24 seconds they'll have a chance to do it all over again. There are definitely more turnovers per game in the nba than college.
OF course they hate the NBA right now b/c their PIstons fans and their team sucks..
Obv there's more turnovers in a NBA game b/c the shot clock is shorter and the games are longer, it's called common sense. Also the clock stops after made baskets in the NBA game under 2 minutes and in the college game it doesn't stop in the 1st half unless you call a timeout or there's a stoppage in play..
I could watch other college games when Michigan sucked. I could watch other nfl games when the lions sucked (although that is getting harder as well). I can watch other mlb games when the tigers suck. See a pattern?
I'd love for the pistons to be good again, but I stopped watching them even before they became bad. Also I presented you with facts that there are more turnovers per game in the nba.
I'd still like to know how, if CBB is so much more inferior to the NBA, the UK/KU title game got a rating of 12.3 (20.9M viewers) while Game 5 of the NBA Finals only got a rating of 10.9 (18.4M viewers).
look at my post above ur facts are skewed b/c of the reasons i presented above..
You're are comparing a winner take all game compared to a series that is a best of 7 and the series was 3-1. Give me the ratings of Game 1 compared to the college game..
Heat/Thunder G1 ABC 9.9 16.2M
It's b/c so many ppl in the USA are in March Madness pools and want to see if they win money, If the NBA had a pool like college did the ratings of the NBA would destroy college so its skewed..
It also gives them the reason to not take care of the ball as much as college teams.
"Ratings don't lie.."
That makes zero sense if you turn the ball over against teams like the Nuggets or Heat you will get run out of the gym, you have to protect the ball more in the NBA b/c the players can score in transition 10000x better than any college player.
NBA regular season games crush college bball regular season games, I forgot about that caveat..
