Here's a list of things that I'm getting sick of about College Basketball

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.
