For you youngsters that have read my rants about the shaft

we got on the final play of the Maryland game in football back in the 80's....Well, today was the basketball version of it. But, we won. That last fiasco with the free throw was a clear set up. Put our worst guy on the line. If he makes it,blow the whistle, have a conference and say,"No,No. Wrong player.Shoot again."...But you can bet your alligator shoes....if Thomas misses that shot and Florida gets the rebound,there is no way they stop play and say, "Oh, so sorry. Wrong guy shot. Put 4.4 seconds on the clock and have Lee step to the free throw line". No sir. Putting Thomas on the line was scheme. In my 55 or so years that I can remember seeing games and playing in games, I have NEVER seen points taken off the board where the refs screwed up. Can you imagine a football game where they put the ball on the 32 yard line for us to kick the game winning field goal, we snap the ball, make the kick, and halfway through the uprights, the refs blow the whistle and say,"My bad, the ball should have been placed on the 29....please kick it again"?

Still, our coaches should have caught it to begin with.

I bet you have never heard of Lenny Wurtz or #### Pepparo, have you? Us old timers have seen so many screwings at the hands of the refs over decades. It was at its worst, pre-FSU expansion when there weren't so many Tv cameras and angles.

It was an intent to screw the Tigers and the refs were not so great in that game--I assure you.
Thomas got thrown down and fouled before he got the ball to Reed who was holding the ball when a foul was called.
I expect J. Swofford will try to hire those three and the official scorer by next Wednesday PM.
Some of their charging/blocking calls were very suspect in 1st half.

Put the bottle down and remove the tin foil hat.


Clearly, you have never seen the end of that Maryland game.***

jk. That was bad. This game and the '88 ND/Miami game had the worst end of game officiating ever.

That Maryland game was one of the most upsetting games I ever went to. Thought I was going to blow a gasket, and I could see the play all the way from the other end zone.


Was that the one with the pass to the corner of the end zone

that went right through the receiver's hands and they called it a catch?

Yes. After the 25 second clock expiring before the ball was

WAA WAA, the whole world gets up every morning to screw the TIGERS. Mistakes are made man, we don't live in a perfect world.

resulted in a defensive rebound. I don't think the refs were out to get us. They seemed like equal opportunity offenders to me.
