I'm trying not to stew about the fraudulent officiating that continues to screw UofL. Instead I'm starting a list of things that really drive me crazy about college basketball. I'll start with two items, so please add on to this list yourself.
1. When a 6'7" 240 lb man shoots a three, gets hit on the fingertips and falls to the ground. This "play" frequently gets the foul call for this charade. It's sickening. I wish the refs would revert to soccer and actually call some sort of unsportsmanlike foul on the offensive player for faking the foul. Think about it: a huge dude is getting hit on the finger and falling down to the floor. It's embarrassing.
2. The Timeout Rule. Is there anything worse than there being a scramble for the ball and having one guy get it and call a timeout so his team can get a "do over." Or, if a guy's trapped in the corner, he can call timeout to get a "do over" also. This is just stupid. Competitively speaking, how do awarding timeouts in those situation make sense? It's the equivalent of a QB calling timeout right before a sack.
Today's been a frustrating day. Please add on to this list.
