You guys were silly to be arguing over it in the first place before they each got a chance to play their semifinal matches. The line is largely perception based, Nadal steam rolled Murray and Gulbis took a set off Nole. Had Nole won like Nadal did and say Murray took Nadal to 5 sets then you wouldnt have gotten this line you see now for the final.

Not scenario but mindset, just thinking something cant/wont happen is the point.

Its the same reason you still have alot of stubborn coaches who choose not to foul with time left, the guy makes the 3 and the coach looks stupid. So why didnt the coach foul, well he didnt foul because he didnt think the guy would make the 3, some have come around and foul in that scenario, seemed to take years before coaches caught on.

Missing the ft is easily the right call with that little time left, its not even close frankly.
You just made up numbers bottom line you can lose if it happens, that is the point, if it happens then everyone here would be first saying they cant believe what they just saw and that he should have made the FT and what was Izzo thinking.

well let say he made the ft and virgina get to setup a play (which is a better percentage) of tying the game with a setplay then it goes to overtime. overtime means 50/50 chance again for any team to win.

now the perecentage is lower for virgina to win if he miss the ft ...which he did.

if michigan st gonna go with percentage...the lowest one is in their favor which is missing the ft.
Thing is he can miss it even if he's not trying to and vice versa, make if he's trying to miss, he almost made it. People speak of low percentage of making 2/3 to 3/4 length shot, Ive seen many  inbounds from far end not even being caught by the teammate, rather the opponent, fumbled turnover. Izzo had all but one man on the FT line, what was the purpose of that. In case Harris tries to miss and makes it?

Which way can you lose the game, if he misses the FT or makes it?

Show me any evidence of a team nailing a 3/4 shot for the win down by 2 (or 1, or even tied for that matter) after a missed free throw in NCAA history.  Division 1, any regular season/tournament/etc.  

...........any?

Now, shall I research teams inbounding the ball under their own net with less than 2 seconds that got a pass in and have hit a three?  Do you think there are any?  I bet I kind find one or two.
So youre going with the I havent seen it so it wont happen approach. Im sure youve played many ML's in your life and the reason you played it because you said to yourself no way they lose, might not cover but no way they lose this game to this team.. and then they lost. I wont even go to youtube and hit keywords looking for shots but Im absolutely sure its happened many times, which is probably why you narrowed your response down to NCAA games because YOU just havent seen it happen. Bottom line is YOURE PUTTING YOUR TEAM IN A POSITION TO LOSE THE GAME, THAT IS DUMB.

Its actually a horrible strategy to miss the FT, if you cant understand that then youre not a thinking man or, well thats the only option, youre just not a thinker.

"Not to mention the snarky comment from the announcers about how the oddsmakers are really good because they said the line was -7"

Thats really weird because the announcers NEVER talk about the spread never heard an announcer mention a line. Wow
I have, more than once.

Why would someone wait till 5 seconds left to fix a game, turnover in their side of the court and hope the opposing player races down and scores, it always appears fixed when youre on the losing side.

Why would you bet like that, what sense does that make.

You only had them winning by 6, the spread was -3 and its a POY? If I made a POY it'd be a game where Im predicting a blowout.
