    Another double foul!

    It was just yesterday that I said I have not seen a double foul since the ISU / MSU game.

    I just saw another one called in the FL / UCLA game and Curtis Shaw was involved in both of them.

    Re: Another double foul!

    Who will the refs protect more on Monday night: Oden or Noah?

    The only reason that I semi-care, is because if the game was good, I wouldn't be forced to write my paper...

    I think it will depend on what part of the country the refs normally work. Most of the crew in the second game, which is boring, is from the midwest and they are letting them play a lot more than the crew in the first game.

    Glad to see people still remember that Shaw was involved in that other one so we can continue to heckle him in the future. Also, Tommy O'Neill was involved in the one tonight...he's the idiot who gave Kansas the free 3-pointer a couple years ago in Lawrence.

    Re: Another double foul!

    I never understood that, and likely never will. How can you call BOTH? I can't see how this can actually be in the rulebook. It makes no logical sense...

    Reggie Evans from EIU committed a double foul last year when he grabbed both of them.

    Re: Another double foul!

    The simultaneous charge/block call is ridiculous and only exposes the subjectivity of basketball refereeing.

    The NCAA ought to mandate that if the refs want to call both a charge and a block on the same play then they should call no foul and any points scored on the play will count.

    Re: Another double foul!

    The refs were too egotistical to say they were wrong on big game. Maybe you can charge and then maybe the other guy can grab your arm. It may be possible to follow each other at the same time.

    I agree. You'd think that it would either be waved off, or discussed in a ref-huddle like they do in football.

    Re: Another double foul!

    I did see a "double foul" in a Creighton game several years ago. Up until last night that was the only one since the MSU fiasco. Amazing. By definition of a "blocking foul" and a"charging foul" it HAS to be one or the other.

    Re: Another double foul!

    My blood boils every time I think about the infamous "double foul." Thanks for bringing it up. I mean what kind of spineless do you have to be to make that call. GET OUT OF THE WAY REFS!! Let them play. Oh, my day is ruined. I need to call my therapist.

    Re: Another double foul!

    I thought Lonnie Dixon made that horrible call in our game against MSU. And, IIRC he also had tossed LE out of a game when LE was at Utah St. I may be wrong though.

    Re: Another double foul!

    The Final Four referee calls have been questioned by many in the media. Our ESPN friends said three of the four halves were poorly reffed.
    Who do these guys get these assignments?
