    i don't know if anyone else is watching the game but one of florida's starters accidentally stepped on a kentucky players arm while this player was laying on the floor in a dead ball situation. i don't have a rooting interest but it was obvious imo that it was accidental, but the player was ejected from the gave after getting a flagrant foul. the announcers explained that by rule that had to be called, but if so that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard. just think if that would happen to one of our players (brackins especially). i'd be outraged. what a stupid call.:no:

    i personally am not a florida fan, but i'd love to see them win after that call. after an unbelievable shot by calathes i'd be surprised if they didn't. and an orange was just thrown on the court. weird weird game.

    i dont think it was "obviously accidental"... it wasnt nearly as bad as say when Chase Budinger got his face stepped on, but still i think he had the opportunity to stop and not step on him

    The announcer said it had to be called, if it was intentional or not. So you can't step on someones arm unintentionally during a dead ball?:skeptical:

    He was looking right down at him it looked like, I think they called it just because of that Houston/Arizona game where the Houston player stepped on Budinger's head.

    i don't think he would step on the guys arm on purpose and then immediately apologize.

    I was watching and am still not sure if he did it intentionally or not. Also, did it seem like the ref's did not really see the play live? I didn't know there was replay in college basketball other than slock/shot clock/three pointer. In my opinion you call it a foul, flagrant, whatever as you see it. Are ref's going to start reviewing contact in the post, etc?

    I wonder if that guy is related to Christian Laettner.

    I thought that he was focused on his teammate who was down on the floor right next to the guy who got stepped on.
