Just couldn't get it done for UK. Nice try though.
I hate refs like that. The ones who can't call a consistent game.
The opening minutes of the 2nd they let the players play and get after it then when we got up by 17 they started calling it tight again and completely changed the flow of the game.
No doubt, regardless to where they play, the Ville has to win by 10+ to squeak out a win against UK.
the grey headed ref (john Cal?) SUCKS...he almost SINGLE HANDEDLY kept UK in the game...Jim Burr would be so proud..
Not sure if anyone noticed this but did anyone see the ref stare Dieng down in the first half?
It occurred when Dieng picked up a foul that he disagreed with. NN just shot his first FT of two. When he missed, the ball bounced Diengs way and he soccer style kicked it to the ref who promptly stared him down until all the substitutions were made. I knew then that Dieng was going to get in foul trouble.

One thing for certain, Crybaby, Suckazz, calamari knew when he got his Tee his employees (The refs ) would start calling ticky tacs on our boys, they tried to make it close, We will grow only stronger from this WIN , I would love to see the little boys in blue in march ,but I have a feeling they will watching us play not playing against us . GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!
Saw that, pissed me off.
I felt like UK got a favorable whistle as ell. I saw 3 fouls not called on us (2 at end of first half in teh scramble) and then MAYBE the Dieng play at the end where Noel fell (you really couldnt tell from the replay if he had ball or arm). My best friend even texted me back that he felt they got a good whistle to be in our house. I mean you look up with 10 minutes to go and we got 3 starters with 4 fould whereas they had like 5 guys with 3 fouls but none with 4. Factor in the vicious foul on Behanan by Stein. Considering anytime someone is hit above the shoulders that hard you can call an intentional and given the circumstances at the time was there any doubt that was on purpose? They will cry and whine about the refs but they got a fair whistle. We wont even get into the 8-10 traveling calls UK got away with.
The officials are going to miss more than they ever make - same in every game. The few instances that stick out were the last foul on P. Siva. From each angle shown, I never saw contact, but they called it,so be it.
The other was the third or the fourth on R. Smith, whichever, the shot the uk player took in the lane. Making it more bizarre was the response of the announcers - sometimes the official has to make the call not really seeing who committed the foul!!!! If they do not see it, don't call it.
Other than that, it seemed there were several walks missed.
A simple question: is your butt jealous of the amount crap coming from your mouth?
John Cahill is the absolute worst. I hate him.
and dont forget the 15 or so moving screens on kid n play..er I mean Noel that SHOULD of been called. I mean geez if you dont call it for NOT being set at ALL let alone a full second..then you HAVE to call them when you extend your arms...right?...God these refs sucked...and I mean BADLY. You would think a high profile itra state rival game on national freaking TV could draw some better officials.
Traveling team gets to choose the officials. You have to expect the SEC to have poor officiating after all they just got finished with football and have little else to do
$ECash officials and they could even give the win to Ukant. L YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think everyone is overreacting a little. They just weren't good officials and it went both ways. Now, the foul they called when Russ abused Polson really had me scratching my head, but I really think they sucked both ways.
Refs can keep putting them at the line and even give them do-overs when they miss but they can't shoot 'em for them, at least not yet...probably next year
Goodwin walked at least three times..no call.
i particually loved the one where russ makes a steal..gets tripped if not grabbed and thrown down..uk hits three...5 pt turnaround just right there (we were in bonus and Russ would of been shooting)
I figured out the free throw problem. Uk has been watching the Darius Washington Free Throw Maker Better Video.
I saw and told my wife and he was the ref that hurt us the most.
I guess you guys don't want to mention the cross block by Siva at the end of the first half?
No we can talk about all the cruddy calls. I've already read your board your kind thinks the cats got hosed. Most on hear think the Cards got every bad call against them. Sounds to me the game was poorly called all the way around. It just depends what part of the game you paid the most attention. If this game were in Rupp Noel would have one pf not four.
Oh and since Noel just fell over here is the picture.
haven't seen the one mentioned where Nerlen held Dieng by the arm so Stein could drive uncontested down the lane
I agree. The refs were terrible all around.
That was clearly the most blatent missed call of the game. He litterally grabs and holds his arm. Actually should have been an intentional foul. Sivas 3rd and 5th fouls are jokes and 4th wasnt much better.
cal coaches the refs morethan his own team. heck just watch theirlast possession
