Even when we win! They must not be good at "screwing us."
well these ones last night sure did their best.
There certainly were some one sided calls late in the game that went Memphis' way.
Well-said. I realize refs are humans and it's hard to be professional when a coach just said something you didn't like...but calling a tick-tack foul right after that exchange is pretty clear evidence of unprofessionalism on the referee's part. Unacceptable at this level.
I'd just like to know what the ref said to Billy for him to give the ref the stink face. You could tell it was something that refs don't normally say to coaches by his facial expression.
Knowing Billy, we will probably never know what he said because he will either refuse to answer those questions or dance around the specifics. Billy is too classy for that stuff.
That foul call within seconds after the inbounds after the exchange was pathetic. Later on Luckie went back up to Billy to answer a question and was far more subdued. You could tell he knew he screwed up.
There was a beautiful block late in the game that was whistled by a guy 25 feet away that I thought was terrible.
^^ Not to mention Dodo's last block that was called a foul. That was all ball IMO.
I don't believe these guys are in "crews" . IF there is trouble between Billy and any of these guys he will probably defuse it as would a manager with an umpire at the next day's meeting at home plate. Even if you must back down a little bit in the next pre-game "ta;k around", it is well worth it. The ONE guy you NEVER want to make mad at you is Teddy Valentine. I have seen Teddy Ballgame work a few Southern Conference games and he is a lot of fun to talk with during commercial breaks BUT you don't want him mad at your team.
Somebody earlier said it was because of Scottie making a hooking motion to show that he was being hooked and it showed up the ref. It looked to me like Luckie came running over to yell at Billy because Billy came pretty far out on the court to get the attention of a different ref so that he could call the timeout after our made basket. Memphis was quickly moving to inbound the ball so Billy was extra demonstrative in trying to get the timeout. It seemed to me like Luckie was admonishing Billy to stay on the bench. Maybe Billy was upset because Pastner was 4 feet out on the court most of the game and the refs never said anything to him.
Yet the refs could have called a foul on the last play but didn't....
Sure, but Florida was the beneficiary of an extremely foul call at the other end. Same with the two goal tending calls. Neither were obvious, but Florida and Memphis both got one their way. Overall, I think it was a pretty fair.
The goal tending call on Memphis was not obvious, but it was correct. You could see the ball hit the backboard first on replay. Even the TV announcers acknowledged it.
I thought both goal tending calls could have easily been no-calls.
Could have been a no-call due to an untrained eye, but would have been incorrect. It's an automatic goal tend if you touch the ball after it bounces off the backboard. That's what the replay showed on the 2 points awarded to us.
If is extremely difficult to ref a basketball game at any level. That's why I gave it up very quickly after starting. Of course, I was reffing in a Cuban adult league where games sometimes ended in massive brawls with both teams piled up in the middle of the floor and several of the spectators throwing crushed ice balls into the melee.
But what did it show about Casey's block ? Off the glass, or going up and he slapped into the glass ?
Just wondering what it looked like to somebody else.
Looked to me like Casey got the ball slightly before it hit the glass. I though it was a good block.
Casey's block was good.
What other games has he refed against us? I think we were 0-3 in close games with him as our ref coming in to this one.
I agree. If the refs were trying to throw the game, they were served a game changing foul in the final seconds. I wouldn't be surprised if Memphis' coach told them to drive the lane and get the foul, rather than trying something from outside. Anyway, the refs swallowed the whistle when nobody would have questioned a foul. Even I cringed fully expecting a foul and was shocked it wasn't called.
I was wondering about this. This is still the rule in college? I thought it changed recently, but perhaps that was just the NBA?
