    After the horrific call on Samuel, it got me thinking. I would like to see college coaches get a challenge. They do it in the NBA and I think it works well. I wish the NCAA would do this in college basketball also. Thoughts?

    Agree. I'm watching the MSU v Indiana game. MSU player tripped and fell on a fast break and the ref called a foul on Indiana. Replay showed the Indiana player never got within 4 ft of the MSU player. Absolute phantom call. No recourse for Indiana. That is not a judgment type call. There was no contact. Period. Should be overturned.

    Who was it that got three FTs against the Gators for a "foul" when our defender didn't even touch the dude?

    Or take a pro wrestling type elbow blow to the back of the head and get called for a foul.

    That would not do any good. With the officiating in the SEC you would use that in the first minute or two. Then they would call a couple of revenge fouls on your team for showing them up.
