Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Did the refs just think that he was in the restricted area? Or do they think those were regular blocking fouls (even though they weren't)? Is it a different foul if you're in the restricted area? These are nuances of basketball that I don't completely understand.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||I still think the PI call on Cissoko was not that bad||
I was at the game and I saw the throw coming before it was released. I immediately looked at the receiver. Cissoko could feel that the ball was in the air but he hadn't turned around to find it yet. He immediately slowed down and crouched with his hands slightly out, halting the receiver. Then Cissoko found the ball. All you see in the video is after Cissoko found the ball and I agree that if this is all that happened, the only call you can make is offensive PI (especially with that rake at the end). However, immediately when the ball was released, Cissoko bumped the receiver before finding the ball. I don't think it's worth calling and I think a defender like Warren is able to be more subtle about this where it's never called, but I wouldn't label it the "world's worst PI". Maybe I'm completely wrong. Maybe it's OK to slow down and bump a guy when you're running in front of him, but I don't think so.

I could be wrong, but I thought I remember seeing that specific angle on the ABC broadcast while the play was being reviewed. That was actually the angle where he looked _less_ out of bounds. This shot made the ABC crew think that maybe there's not enough evidence to overturn it. So, WNDU is full of crap. Maybe I just dreamed all of that, I'll have to watch it again.

I seriously watched both muppet videos twice. It was very cathartic. It put my emotions front and "Central". (tehehe)
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Looks like the videos links are off by one||
I don't know if anyone has commented this or maybe it's even fixed, but the video links are off by one. I think it starts with the first interception video being linked in a later play, but I could be wrong...
I don't know how anyone finds the time to do all this in such amazing detail, great job Brian!

How could you list all the blown Notre Dame hires and not mention George O'Leary! It's not that George is a bad coach, it's just that the actions surrounding his hiring/firing was classic, overly proud, out of touch Notre Dame.
