When it became apparent that duke might win, I recorded Bob's call of the last ~2 minutes. If anyone would like, i am planning on making an mp3 of the final play, which, if you havent heard it, is very exciting. If you want it, post here

I thought Wes Chesson was excellent down the stretch. He kept saying what I wanted to say. "Don't lay back and hope that Northwestern makes a mistake. Attack and force a mistake. Don't wait for them to lose the game, win the game for yourself."

Kudos to Wes.

Living in Hillsborough, about 15 miles away from Duke, I cannot pick up WDNC at night, so I had to watch on TV so I would love to hear Bob's call. Also, how did Bob and Wes react to the reversal of the 4th down play that was changed on replay. It seemed to be an obvious first down. On the Big Ten Network with big ten announcers,they were astounded the play was reversed.

I like Wes, but did no one else think Harris' calls were far too homerish? For someone who couldn't watch the game, he acted like every single call went against Duke, but then, a play would be reviewed and the call's that didn't go Duke's way got upheld. I dunno, just my opinion, I just found it very misleading.

Harris' job is to preach to the choir, try to be objective, but essentially preach to the choir. Hey, Could be worse. What if you had to listen to Woody Durham call the Duke game? Oh God, I had to listen to that man give reports on Greensboro television news for years! It was horrific.

My favorite announcer comment in a long time was the day after this year's NCAA finals. FOX radio sports co-host James Washington said:

"Billy Donovan has a chance to become the John Wooden of college basketball."

jumping up and down and yelling in our living room ourselves to hear what Bob was saying. I'd love to hear it.

your wish is my command
there are 2 files here- the entire last 2 minutes and the postgame. they are recorded from wdnc-620 AM

DISCLAIMER: i have uploaded the files as-is. i have not edited out any commercials as i had origionally intended to do. I thought that people would rather have this now unedited than get it edited after the fact. Feel free to use this file for whatever you want; i do not consider it mine juse because i recorded it.

have fun!

I know you already got the file up, but box.net is good for that kind of stuff + it was co-created by a current Duke student.

(Not meant to be a shameless plug. Thought you guys might be interested in the work of a rather enterprising Blue Devil.)

Absolutely! I can't pick up 620am where I live so I missed it. I'd love to hear it.

godukecom - Thank you so much.

Also, I listened (via the Internet) to Chicago's WGN live-feed, which carried the entire game for Northwestern. It's interesting to observe the obvious, unsurprising partisanship by contrasting the last minutes of Bob Harris' broadcast to WGN's, which seemed to focus more on poor officiating than on the game and Duke's stellar "red zone" defense.

I got goosebumps listening to Bob Harris. :D :D :D

I get goosebumps with every big play he does...

he spins, get it over to mccants on the right side with 2 seconds, with 1 second, ball out of bounds, DUKE BALL IT'S OVER!

McRoberts looking, throws it to midcourt to dockery, dockery dribbles, shoots
SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORES

are 2 of my favorites

Mine are pretty predictable..

"Four Seconds, Three. Jordan lets fly! IT IS OVER! The Destiny Darlings have done it! Duke has won its first National Championship 72-65 over the Kansas Jayhawks."

"Bobby Hurley up the floor with Laettner they throw it the length of the court. Laettner catches. comes down, DRIBBLES. SHOOTS! SCOOOOOOOOORRREEEHHESSSS! CHRISTIAN LAETTNER HAS HIT THE BUCKET AT THE BUZZER! THE BLUE DEVILS WIN IT! 104 to 103! LOOK OUT MINNEAPOLIS! HERE COME THE BLUE DEVILS!!!

Every time I hear him say Destiny Darlings or Scoooores, I get goosebumps...
