You know how I know that Northwestern doesn't have staying power amongst the creme de la creme of college basketball? They are still posting pictures of one missed call - from a tournament that is rife with missed calls - ELEVEN days after they lost. You would think reality would have set in by now. You'd think being a week and half removed from the emotions of a game they didn't deserve to win anyway would make it easier for them to understand...
An unblown whistle with FIVE minutes (basically an eternity in college hoops) left was only as detrimental to their chances of advancing past the first weekend as their head coach's decision to blow a gasket shortly thereafter. Yet, here they are still hanging signs around campus like the goaltending call that wasn't cost them a National Championship or something. They still feel so cheated that they are actively reminding themselves of how their dream season ended. Continuously harping on something that is as built into the fabric of the NCAA tournament as futile officiating is proof positive that you probably aren't a school that's going dancing with any regularity. You only get one work week to bitch and moan about incompetent referees, and - if you're going to take advantage of it - then at least make it worthwhile by placing empty threats on an innocent man's life and career like butthurt Kentucky fans.
