You Make the Call

When I watched this play at the end of the Texas A&M/UCLA game in the NCAA tournament, I thought, "Man, that really looked like a foul." Actually, I screamed "FOUL!" really loud at the TV - only to be told by the announcers that the final score was 53-49 (or something like that). This play made the difference between an overtime game and a UCLA win.

What do you think? Foul or clean play?

If you said "clean play," you are obviously a UCLA fan or ESPN's Doug Gottlieb. He actually said that Texas A&M should not complain about officiating. He claimed that the referees had called a good game. He said something like, "It was just good hard-nosed defense." I was dumbfounded by the comment because I doubt that A&M would have gotten the benefit of the same call had the roles been reversed.

The good news is that the A&M player is back on campus after coming out of the trauma-induced coma he suffered when he hit the floor after this hard-nosed defense.

Anyway, I needed to get that off my chest because it has been stewing for about 3 weeks.
