Whatever. It's no hair off my balls. I saw the fouls, the announcers saw the fouls, the audience saw the fouls.
If you want to give the patent "let them play" that's fine. The game was a bit out of control early, and it was called loosly from the start. At the 1:29 mark, Illni was fouling constantly and there were no calls. I have watched enought BB to know when a game is being thrown. I'm not bitter, I'm just dissapointed that they let Chicago Refs throw the game. I saw it with my own two eyes. It was a ****ing joke.
First, it has NOTHING TO DO WITH FOOTBALL WHATSOEVER. Second, when announcers are calling fouls that are no calls, a certain amount of self vindication is involved, especially since Illinois was playing at home.
I am not even going to bother because the fouls were so blatant it was incredible. Now look, when the announcers, who are supposed to be neutral, and Illinois is the prohibitive favorite, why are they scratching their heads watching them Hack their way to the OT?
I don't follow basketball alot, but I know a throw when I see one. The pass to open court was a FOUL. Arizona should of gotten a 3 point play late. There were other blatant fouls that were not called, one of which CBS only showed on shot of, when an Illini player had literally tried to tear a jersey off. Now last time I checked, that was a loose ball foul.
They were hand checking like crazy as well, and there wasn't one call. I'm not discounting Illinois at all. That fact is, the game was thrown.
