    I never saw what was so bad about it. It doesn't seem like all officials call it anyway.

    He excessively hung on it. He swung back and forth and nobody was below him so there was no safety issue.

    Easy call IMO.

    It's considered taunting. You can only hold on if there are players under you and you're doing it to not land on someone. It was a good call.

    Its a judgment call, but it looked to me like the colorado player actually touched godfey during the dunk... And you saw godfrey look around and point to the player after the dunk... I think it was a BS call... Luckily it didnt scew us tonight...

    Meh. Players taunt and showboat the entire game. Don't see how hanging on the rim is any worse. Guys scream after they get a foul and pump their chest. IMO that's worse than hanging onto the rim.

    it looked to me like he was trying to not land on his back, questionable call, but we won so not really a big deal

    Can we all agree that Ejim's call in the Cal game was BS?

    Seriously I thought Cal was trying to tear that thing down! Great game by Cal with 1 mistake.

    can't blame the refs for calling that one. Calvin earned a T. Even so, it was a monster dunk.

    Good post. I completely agree. I think the refs in this game applied the rules as they are stated correctly, but the more important question is why is hanging on the rim a T in this age of basketball.

    With the rim and backboard technology, any rim can take 99.9% of players (Shaq the exception) dunking and hanging.

    I've seen so many injuries of wrist (from trying to soften the fall) and tail bone injuries (from landing hard on it) because guys Don't want to hang on the rim.

    And, lets face it the DUNK is one of the best aspects about the game period. Why not allow it to be a little more exciting?

    Hanging on the rim when no one is around you is as easy of a call as you'll get. It's the definition of taunting. The refs had no choice but to call it.

    Someone actually thinks it was a questionable call?...LOL

    That was as flagrant of a hanging on the rim as you can do. I love it now since it didn't cost us the game, but he needs to keep that in practice.

    Monster game by Godfrey and GREAT way to send the Seniors out.

    Go State...let's get a couple more!

    I don't think it's a questionable call. I just don't know why it's a rule anymore.

    I've never understood it. IMO which is worse a broken ego from an in your face dunk or a broken wrist, arm, or broken tail bone. Always seemed pretty straight forward to me, but the NCAA still hasn't done anything about it.

    Because it's taunting. Is it really that hard to understand?
