Words can't describe it

Most amazing thing I've ever seen. People crying everywhere, including the players and coaches and of course fans.

 

Loudest I've ever heard a stadium. Most heart i've ever seen from a group of athletes. And I was there in person to see it.

 

First final 4 in 16 years, and wow what a way to come back. We could lose by 30 points Saturday, and what happened tonight won't feel any less wonderful.

 

I know a lot of you don't care less about Illinois, or don't even like us, but what that comeback meant to so many people and how great it felt can't be put into words.

My moment was

 

Duke at Maryland in 2001.

 

Down 10 with 56 seconds to go...Jason Williams scores 8 points in 13 seconds.

 

We sent it into OT and took them out there as Battier scored 6 straight and blocked Maryland's last shot.

 

I remember before the 56 seconds began they showed a section of Maryland fans holding up car keys and going wild.

 

Then they showed the same section with about a minute left in OT when the game was out of reach and the section was half empty and people were crying.

 

Ahhh the Memories....

That's similar to my experience during Game 6 of the NLCS in 2003. Being this close to elimination and then like nothing just piling on runs and not letting go to momentum until the final out was recorded in the World Series.

 

On a much smaller note, being there in person when Lo Duca hit the first pitch he saw out was incredible as well.

 

Either way, congrats man, and if you are lucky enough to play two more games you're in for two more great games with Louisville and UNC.
