2013 NCAA Tournament

Well this week end two games were potentially altered by poor officiating. In that sense its ok the complain. I hate it when they let guys pound each other under the rim, but then call a hand check across the court away from the ball. It need to be consistent. If they call it tight then stay tight.

But this happens all the time it's just magnified because of the stage that it's on. I agree that it sucks when the refs make a bad call but they are human and the block/charge call is one of the hardest calls to make and it's easy for us to complain about it when we get to see the play over and over again and in slow motion. The other call is just the NCAA not having the right rule in place, why could you not go to the monitor and look at who the ball was out on? The NBA does it and hell the refs go to the monitor for everything else.

Just because there are bad calls each way doesnt mean that everything is even. I realize this is hard for you to understand as a Duke fan, but sometimes teams get screwed by the refs. poo happens, you move on

I agree that people complaining about the refs can get obnoxious, but I find your snarky replies whenever someone calls out shitty officiating quite obnoxious; it is what it is

Duke fan's have seemed to grasp the impact of human error and although I am sure there are plenty of calls that we disagree with, we don't run to the boards to cry about it. UNC fan's can never just flat out say, our team lost, we go outplayed, we had a terrible game, there always has to be some qualifier saying "We played bad, BUT we also couldn't get any calls.."

Did you watch the State/Temple game? If you didn't watch the game then don't give me this auto-response about how complaining about officiating is cheap.

I wouldn't blame the loss on officiating, but at the end of a game when a team is within 1 or 2 possessions and there are a string of awful calls you cannot say that it didn't affect the outcome.

I did watch the game and I agree there were some bad calls but the reason Nc State lost was Purvis and Warren didn't show up. Look at Kelly, Plumlee, and Hairston all played in foul trouble last night and some of the calls against Mason and Kelly were cheap but you have to play through it, other people have to step up.

Yesterday we lost, we got outplayed, and we had a terrible game. I'm more humble than most though..

Unc is who they are and did exactly what they did in the regular season in the tourney, they won the game they should and lost the game they should. That was unc's M.O. all year. It was too hard for that "small" lineup to work against that front line KU has but they hung tough for a half.

In the first half the only thing they did well was defend. They're shooting was god awful. If they could have even had a average shooting night they would have been up more than 20 at half time. Ifs don't win the game though and I'm sure Kansas wouldn't have played that bad in a half again.

I just don't understand all the complaining about the calls, unc fans included. There were multiple unc fans complaining about calls during the game, you guys need to man up. How about you ask other ACC schools and fans of those schools if unc gets shafted on calls. Yes there are bad calls in every game, it's going to happen you just deal with it. I don't think I've seen any Duke fans on here complain about officiating and want to blame loses on it. I thought the Duke vs. UVA game was terribly officiated and one of the worst I had seen in a while but I didn't get on here and complain or blame Duke losing on it. Sometimes you get the calls, Duke and unc more often, but sometimes you don't and I find it comical when any unc fan complains about officiating or blames a loss on the refs.

I dont think UNC fans have ever blamed a loss on the refs, though you wouldnt know it from how many times you dookies accuse people of it.

Complaining about bad calls during the game is part of watching the game, nobody cares if you get sand in your vagina every time someone brings up the refs. Youre just bitter about it cause everybody accuses dook of getting all the calls

Oh, and I know one dookie who complains constantly about the refs...

You'll notice when we have solid post presences we are 1st every time. Not a coincidence. Recruit bigs that draw contact and not shoot 3s.
