Giglio: Officiating Is Inconsistent

J.P. Giglio at ACC Now notes the officiating in the Duke-FSU game.

Pivot Foot Optional

This is some pretty low hanging fruit for anyone wanting to discuss favorable officiating for Duke.  I think if we culled the video archives of every college basketball game played we would find this sort of think happens more often than not.  It should be noted this is the 2nd such video of a [...]

Hansbrough May Have Had A Concussion vs Miami

And it is all his fault if you listen to the ABC rabble.

Two Final Notes

First of all, it seems like everyone is picking the Heels to win this one.  In a series that prides itself on defying the conventional wisdom there is concern that the Duke players will take this kind of mass backing of UNC as a point of motivation.  I am not believer in reverse mojo or [...]

At Least Ron Cherry Never Did This

This was during the LSU-SCAR game Saturday night where an SEC official inexplicably lays a shoulder into SCAR QB Stephen Garcia.  And for anyone who thinks it was an accident watch as he shuffles his feet to size Garcia up then delivers the blow.  It will be interesting to see how the SEC responds [...]

Now, I agree the UCLA is an excellent defensive team and [...]

Well At Least They Are Upstanding Citizens

From Caulton Tudor at the N&O:

PINEHURST - There are 102 people on the ACC’s football officiating roster and about 70 on the league’s list of basketball refs.

All have undergone what commissioner John Swofford terms an extensive character check by an investigative service hired by the conference.

Yet Swofford worries.

Amid allegations that [...]

Explain Something To Me

How does Greg Oden not get called for a technical foul when dunks the basketball, holds on to the rim for a prolonged period of time, then slaps the back board when he lets go?  I understand the whole “safety of the player” bit but he is seven feet tall for goodness sake.  It is [...]
