What’s your opinion of his umpiring during the 2nd game of the Super Regional?

He lets too much of his emotion and personal opinion govern his umpiring.

Lacks discernment, unable to handle the moment, made it personal/emotional and impacted a game with Omaha on the line. Didn’t have the guts to run Caglione which resulted in the ensuing meltdown of umpiring inequity.

They were going to toss Mathes before the coaches got ejected, make no mistake about it.

Absolute umpiring show boat.

His inability to eject the P and 1st bseman for shoving our player caused the game to get out of control. I give the pitchers momentum carried him in the base path. But he then returned to the baseline to shove our guy as did the 1st baseman. He failed. Looking at the big picture every position player for UF left their position as our guy was ejected for. This ump is a zero.

Not his first time at the rodeo. He threw a Tennessee player and coach out in the past too.
