I’ve decided I don’t like basketball more than ever. Reason- refs and officials have too much control over the game. Football is definitely debatable but in both baseball (especially) and football the guys in stripes cannot dictate the overall game. Could be wrong but I cannot watch college basketball anymore. It’s tough to watch. Doesn’t matter who you are a fan of or pulling for. The foul calls over the years (foul on booker) are so debatable that it can render outcomes debatable. My point. Our Tobacco Road frustration is real and totally understandable along with the schools that have joined the league. Money talks.

completely subjective, allowing the refs to completely control the game just as you stated.

The refs didn’t blow an 18 point lead

That Teddy guy did help NC state make up about 16 of those points and the ref that called that last fandom foul on Trapp helped make up that final 2.....Go Tigers!!!!

It's extremely hard to score. Fans of this would
be bored for lack of offense. It was basically like
kill the man with the ball on the football field.
We were a tough bunch of youngsters back in the day.

I remember, we loved that game. Essentially it was Royal Shrovetide Football played on a BB court with a volleyball. A basket was 1 point. No trip to the ER, no foul. A true melee, essentially the only rule was no murder. No way a school would let kids play it today.

Agreed BB has changed for the worse. I haven't watched pro BB in decades. I prefer going to high school games.


I agree completely. Unwatchable any more.***

Refs don't call palming or carrying the ball. The Euro step used to be called walking.
Refs rarely call blocking when the defender puts 2 hands on the ball carrier. Ref calls are so inconsistent. For example, players from UNC can mug our guys and get a no cal. Then when we foul with 2.6 seconds left by touching a forearm before a shot and Nancy State gets called in the act of shooting- 2 free throws.


yeah I enjoy basketball at times

and it can definitely be exciting but I do not love the sport from a purely technical standpoint because of the constant debate about fouls.

what grates on me is when they change how they call it mid game. You'll see 35 minutes of let them play and then instantly with about 5 minutes left it becomes no touch and tickey tack foul time. ANd picking and favoring a team and do not tell me this isnt done
