    Floyd Goes Nuts!

    Can't say I blame him. Horrible call. I am not a huge Tim Floyd fan but I wish Greg showed some emotion every now and then

    Defender was nowhere close to set. Tim had a right to be upset. The thing is, any good official talks to the other official on contradicting calls.

    I think McDermott has been damn close to blowing a gasket a few times this year...I wouldn't be surprised if it happens by the end of the season...

    Re: Floyd Goes Nuts!

    That was a horrible call. Maybe they should've called a double foul.

    Re: Floyd Goes Nuts!

    Some of the charge calls I have seen this year have made me want to puke... First of all, the NCAA NEEDS to get the semi-circle like the NBA. Second, they need to start dishing out technicals for obvious flops to keep people from sliding under guys. Too many times people try and slide under and take a dive and it's going to get someone hurt. The Hansbourough charge towards the end of the UNC game was a joke... They really need to take control of it...

    Re: Floyd Goes Nuts!

    PAC10 officiating has been suspect all year. Last week in the UCLA/ASU game there was a terrible charge called against Collison late in the game where DC made a great move to the basket and moving his body to the side of the defender as he was in the air. You could cleary see via replay that the defender was moving into collison as collison was in the air. This should have been a and one situation but ASU shot the FT's and changed the game in the last couple of minutes.

    Couldn't agree more... I'm sick of watching the Vlade Divac show in college basketball. There is a time and a place for a charge.... everytime a big guy backs down a smaller guy isn't the time. There needs to be some sort of penalty for obvious flops.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I think McDermott knows how far he can go and goes that far but not over it. He sure works the refs good at times. His feeling him taking a T hurts the team. But after some calls his team gets at some point he needs to stand up from them.

    Have you been attending any men's basketball games this year? Not watching on TV, but actually sitting/standing in the stands...

    Hilton (and the players) would go crazy if Mac would show more emotion.

    It wasn't a good call at all.

    Re: Floyd Goes Nuts!

    Didn't look like a good call on that one, but when will people realize that you don't have to be 'set' to take a charge. You just have to establish defensive position first. Heck, you can even be jumping and taking a charge.

    First, let me say after viewing the video, it was indeed in my opinion a missed call, and not even that close of one. I would also say that the block/charge rules are one of the most misunderstood rules in basketball. I often here people say "he wasn't set when contact was made." Point is he doesn't have to be "Set". There is part of the definition that includes having established initial position on defense, but after that point, they can be moving. For example, if a defender jumps straight up in the air and the offensive player comes into him, it can be a charge even though both the defender's feet are off the ground...seldom called that way I know, but that is how the rule reads in high school, and in college I beleive.
