|3 days 11 hours ago||Poor Robinson||
He had 3 fouls where he made 0 contact. 1) the fore mentioned 3 pointer 2) when he backed away from his guy on the baseline and the guy fell down trying to shoot 3) the 'illegal' screen call where he ran away from both the guy and the direct line to where the defender should go (ok, there was contact on that play but nothing remotely close to a foul)
|4 days 1 hour ago||a couple like that||
but far more where there wasn't even acting to excuse the terrible call.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Walton and Wilson disagree||
Walton and Wilson disagree with you. Both of them shot the ball 6 feet on 10 foot shots with nothing called.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Wisconsin game, higher leverage but waaayyy fewer||
In Madison, it was a 4-5 minutes stretch of terrible calls to move both Wagner and Wilson from 1 foul to 4 and open a 10 point lead. Tonight's were far worse calls, and a whole lot more of them.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Indeed he did.. Also on the||
Indeed he did.. Also on the jump ball call before that. Guy took 3 steps and 2 hops before anyone got to him.
|4 days 1 hour ago||certainly more contact than||
Robinson or Walton's fouls on 3-point shots earlier.
He was also fouled on the hoop to cut it to 1 15 seconds earlier. At least according to the precedent set by the refs in this game. You could see JB losing it on that one.
|4 days 1 hour ago||14 non-contact fouls||
I was at 13 completely terrible fouls whistled on Michigan when the bench got the technical. (I didn't include that one since feet were moving and it was a ~25% chance of that going against you). It went to 14 when Walton got called for hitting the elbow on the 3 point shot a couple of possessions later. 14 of the 28 fouls were 100% wrong.
And that doesn't count anything on the offensive end of the floor. Like DJ getting blatantly hacked on the possession immediately after the technical.
Worst homer job I have seen in a while.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||foul trouble||
couldn't sit Irvin since MAAR and Wagner picked up really cheap fouls early. The bench got shortened and any aggressiveness was removed quickly.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||included in that 15-0 run||
Mo getting pulled down by an arm around his waist...no call
Blatant moving pick leads to wide open 3 for UW
Over the back gives UW another possession and a 3
So, yeah, I'll include the refs on that part, as well.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||From 13:00 to 10:30 to go||
just wow. UM had UW rattled. Wisconsin was playing poorly and UM was in their head. Then terrible 3rd foul on Mo, terrible 3rd and 4th fouls on DJ and it was over (even with the 8 point lead and ball). Sure, the last 10 minutes had a variety of bad calls, poor offensive possessions, and Wisconsin making some plays, but the key were those fouls with 10+ minutes to go.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||OT - never seen it||
I have never seen bad calls lead to 7 point runs so often in one game. (I guess that's not so surprising when the opponent scored on about 90% of their possessions. Which is on topic for the rest of this thread).
From Walton's charge call to about 12 minutes to go, there were about 4 terrible calls against UM. In every one of them UI went on ~7 point runs. Or maybe I should look at it as, there were 4 bad calls against UM while UI went on a 30-10 run?
The duo of the terrible charge on Walton (plus the technical) along with the charge on Wagner where the guy was both late and inside the arc was particularly frustrating in the 17-2 run to finish the half.
This team just doesn't have it to bow their backs and stop those runs more quickly.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Difference in this game||
Bad shooting team has best shooting game of their season. (Four sub-30% shooters combine to shoot 8-11 from 3, about 2 of them were catch and shoot). Michigan outscored and outshot MD from 2. Forced a bad shooting team to shoot long 3s, and MD made them.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||It was intentional||
As they had a could to give, and it still wasn't called.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Oline or WRs||
I understand why people are on the oline, but a few of them weren't quick sacks. Whether that's WRs or the QB (or route combos), I can't say, but it isn't all on the line.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Toomer and Hayes||
Pre-rankings but the best 1,2 ever. Toomer was a top 5 overall type.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||the dumbest meme in sports||
Don't let the officials decide a game, let the players decide it.
2 of the incorrect calls in OT would fall into this category. (don't call a PI on a critical play, don't make the game end by a close spot) so those don't impact the outcome? Dumb.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||and OSU had their chance||
and they came up a half yard short
|12 weeks 5 days ago||lots of 50-50 breaks||
The fumble rolling right to a player laying on the ground
The non-PI in the first quarter stops a drive
No block in the back on the 2nd interception return
No holding on the 3rd down before the last 4th down
The spot on that last 3rd down
3-4 passes being batted straight in the air by our defense and not being caught
|12 weeks 5 days ago||the hits just keep on coming||
2 plays after Hill's PI, there was a play where the OSU receiver had a first down and retreated to short of the first down. On that play, Peppers was spinning him around and UM ripped the ball out just as the whistle blew. His forward progress was never really stopped, and it was probably technically a fumble. (I didn't think so live, but on replay, check it out)
Just like most of the rest of these, the call wasn't terrible, but it was probably wrong.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Harbaugh's point||
is that your point is exactly wrong. He is saying that UM did make the plays to win the game. In particular, the next to last play. Good call and we are talking about what a great play they made to win.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||just rewatched the PI on Hill||
Wow, that was terrible. The ball was past them before the shoulder was turned. Both a legal play and an uncatchable pass. 2 reasons why this was not PI.
Kind of the opposite of the early non-PI on...Butt? There he was held before the ball got there, and the other DB who was covering the other receiver just ran through him while the ball was in the air. Both guys committed clear PI on this one.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||osu had the same||
a way more obvious hands to the face not called back by their goal line (I think we got the sack anyway)
clear block in the back on the 2nd interception return. Would have put the ball at the 30 instead of the 6.
So I guess what you are saying is championship level teams don't get called for their penalties?
|12 weeks 5 days ago||and if the officials||
mark the ball correctly on the 2 penultimate plays, we would have won.
Sure, some things you control, others you don't. But both matter.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Don't forget||
a missed block in the back on the 2nd TD that gave OSU the ball inside the 10 instead of the 30. For a team that hadn't moved the ball 30 yards in the previous 10 possessions, that's a big difference. But of course, as you say, those things are irrelavent.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||which one?||
are you complaining about a 3rd down call when you have to go for it on 4th? Which they did for a TD.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||to be fair||
The 3rd down spot on the previous play was even further off. should have been 4th and just over 1, instead of 4th and 2 inches.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||To be fair...it was 4 times||
1) extra 0.5 off the clock when Harris was fouled, should have been 3.9, went to 3.4
2) extra 0.5 on the time out call. Went from 3.4 to 2.4. Should have been from 3.9 to 3.4
3) extra 0.5 on the inbounds play that was batted down. went from 2.4 to 1.6. Should have been 3.4 to 3.1
4) then the final play where the clock started on the throw instead of the catch
And then the refs just made up a rule. Ummmm, the buzzer sounded too soon, but he missed the shot anyway, so good enough. That's not the rule. Inadvertant buzzer. Offensive team's ball where they had it. Taking it out of bounds on the offensive end (probably under the bucket) with 1.6, which really should have been 3.1.
MSU had a really good whistle all night. Why not on the final plays, too. Not so good to see you Bob, we really didn't miss you.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||rewatched it again||
and again. I still cant see it. How about this? They easily could have ruled it inconclusive.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Lost it||
This turned into a game of field position. Their good punts insiide the 10, our fumble, and the last punt return were the difference.
Iowa's longest drives were 52, 47, and 36 yards. If you won the field position game, that could have been a shutout.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Overturned TD||
Was there a conclusive view?
