Come on UNC fans, I had hoped eventually you would have broken the stereotype of fans that cry about the refs.

Dude I'm not even remotely a UNC fan, just calling it how I see it. Same thing with Illinois getting hosed on the oob call...

Iowa St. has a legit gripe with that charge call as well.

Wonder where Mr. TD is. Doubt he is saying his unoriginal go to catchphrase, "How sweet it is!!!"

I was wondering the same thing.

He also needs to change his avatar again.

Where would winthrop be if marshall never left. Dude can recruit, dude can coach.

The guy actually is not a stellar recruiter. He recruits a ton of JUCOs and transfers. You can put together a spectacular team doing this, but it is damn near impossible to maintain success doing this because you are constantly dealing with turnover. This is what doomed Lutz at Charlotte.

Marshall is an awesome X's and O's coach, but his recruiting is so-so. I'm sure it is difficult to recruit players to Wichita though. When he moves on to a bigger program, I doubt he'll have any issues.

I know there has been complaining about the officiating throughout the tournament. College basketball in general has been getting worse and worse with inconsistent officiating.

I hate to admit it but, I commiserate with UNC fans about Kansas...

I remember last year's Sweet 16 game NC State played against Kansas. Jeff Withey had 10 BLOCKS and 2 FOULS; he hacked us inside all game long and they never blew the whistle. I hate that guy.

By that logic,how about all those games where Zeller and Henson would have 3 or 4 blocks each and only 2 or 3 fouls between them. The whole point is if you are really watching the games, about 99% of the time there are bad calls both ways. When the point is brought up about ref's being the reason you lost the game, that is like saying the refs favored the other team. I think most people would agree the refs have been consistently bad, no matter who the team is.

Plus Withey only fouled out of 1 game this year and he averaged 4 blocks per game and 2 fouls per game so maybe the guy is just good defensively.

Blaming the officiating is a little short sighted in my opinion.

I think the evolution of the offensive game, speed, and athleticism by these players coupled with the fact that many of these coaches don't teach proper defense are the reasons so many fouls are called.

Most of these coaches are just sales guys (recruiters) now. The true teaching of the game and how to play good defense is being erased on a yearly basis.

Forgot about that one, officiating in general has been terrible during the tourney....
