  1. you should know better than to deal in absolutes.
  2. Attempting to call a timeout is not a technical foul. A player can ask for a timeout, but its not a technical foul unless the official grants the timeout. The LSU player did ask for a timeout and the lead official blew his whistle (which he probably shouldn't have done) BUT watch the play again and watch the trail official (the one out by the division line). He blows his whistle too, and I believe he did it because he thought Wiley touched the ball. They went to the table to review if it was basket interfence which in essence gave lsu the timeout anyway. The key here is GRANTED excessive timeouts. LSU was NOT granted an excessive timeout so there isn't a technical foul here. Had there not been a review and the timeout had been granted then yes it would have been a technical foul. ONE free throw for Auburn, then ball put in play at the point of interuption which would mean lsu ball. It also needs to be noted that in the last minute of regulation and overtime, the clock stops on any made fieldgoal. So, the clock would have stopped after the shot anyway. No technical foul is warranted here. Art. 7. A team shall not be granted excessive timeouts without penalty. PENALTY—One free throw awarded to the offended team (Art. 7) Penalized when discovered before the ball becomes live. The ball shall be put back in play at the point of interruption
  3. I turned it way down but the audio is a pitch ahead of the video and I hate watching it that way.
  4. The idiot illinois fan on the video feed is annoying as hell.
  5. That rule is taken right from the college rule book and this rule has been in place for quite a while.
  6. With 0.3 or less the only way to score is with a tap. By rule you cannot gain control of the ball and take a shot. From the rule book: In any period, when the game clock displays 10ths of seconds and play is to be resumed by a throw-in or a free throw when 3/10 (.3) of a second or less remains on the game clock, a player may not gain control of the ball and attempt a try for a field goal. Such player can only score a field goal by means of a tap of a pass or of a missed free throw.
  7. This team is just flat out ridiculous.
  8. Have you ever actually watched Auburn play a game? The talent at Auburn now is better than its ever been in the history of Auburn basketball and it will be better next year. Granted, I wish we shot the ball more consistently, but if you don't think there isn't talent on this team, well, you're insane.
  9. I disagree. Once an official gets to that level of calling games, they are not intimidated by the crowd in any way, shape or form. Did they miss some calls, sure. It happens in every game across the country all season long, but it nothing to do with being intimidated by the crowd.
  10. I think when most think of consistency, they really mean consistency within the crew. They want every official to call it the same. It's just not that simple during live action and having to make split second decisions. Remember the game last night when McLemore ( i think it was) at the end of the half went up to contest a shot and the offensive player fell to the ground with no call? Who's to say if the trail official (If you officiate you should know what that means) would have called it the same way? That's where the biggest problem is from my perspective. I thought it was a terrific no call because the defensive player is allowed to leave his feet as long as he's straight up. McLemore was straight up, arms/hands straight up in the air. The fans were angry about it because it didn't favor their team and because they don't understand the rule or how to apply the rule.
  11. It was a terrific no call for sure.
  12. He is a terrific choice. He was an excellent on field official as was Steve Shaw. I really expected Tom Ritter to get this position. He's the coordinator of officials on the Gulf South Conference (Division II). John McDaid will do a terrific job in this role.
  13. Can you type that in complete English please?
  14. This is very well deserved. He's an excellent official and has earned this through a lot of hard work. He's a 1987 Harvard grad and lives in Redmond, Wa. and works for Microsoft. Great choice. I expected someone else to get this position so I'm surprised and love this promotion. BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (February 3, 2020) - John McDaid, a veteran of football officiating for more than three decades including 24 years on the collegiate level, and a referee in three conferences since 2006, has been named SEC Coordinator of Football Officials, Commissioner Greg Sankey announced Monday. McDaid, a 1987 Harvard University graduate, replaces Steve Shaw who served as the SEC's football officiating coordinator since 2011. Shaw was recently named college football's national coordinator by the board of managers for the College Football Officiating, LLC. "John is widely recognized as one of the finest football officials in the nation and we are fortunate to have someone with his knowledge and ability serving in this important leadership position for our conference," said Sankey. "His educational background, successful officiating career and extensive management experience with Microsoft have prepared him to successfully guide the SEC's football officiating program into the future." McDaid has served as a referee in the Southeastern Conference since 2015, joining the SEC after two years in the same position with the American Athletic Conference. He was a referee in the Big East Conference from 2006-2012 and a back judge in the Big East from 2001-2005. Under a cooperative agreement between the two conferences, McDaid will also serve as Coordinator of Football Officials for the Sun Belt Conference. "I am excited to serve in a leadership position that will afford me the opportunity to transition from leading a crew of eight officials on the field to developing and supporting an entire staff of officials in the Southeastern Conference and Sun Belt Conference," McDaid said. "I am committed to building on the solid foundation established by Steve Shaw and others before him to ensure the best officials are serving both conferences at the highest level." McDaid has worked on the field for 16 postseason bowl games, including four College Football Playoff New Year's Six Games and the 2010 Bowl Championship Series title game. He was also the referee for the 2017 SEC Championship Game and worked the Emerald Isle Classic between Notre Dame and Navy in Dublin, Ireland in 2012 as well as the Army-Navy game in 2013. McDaid has worked professionally in positions of identifying, designing, capturing, engineering and delivering high technology solutions for government and commercial customers. He has worked in a sales director position for Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, WA, since 2012 and previously held management positions located in Washington, DC, and San Diego, CA with technology companies that served the aerospace and homeland security industries. Shaw leaves the SEC after nine years and will continue to be the Secretary-Rules Editor for the NCAA Football Rules Committee. Others on John McDaid: "All of us at the American Athletic Conference send our congratulations and best wishes to John McDaid on this well-earned appointment. John is a superb choice for this important position and will do a great job. He has done a terrific job for the SEC on the field and was an outstanding official in the Big East and then in the American. He is also one of the finest gentlemen one could ever meet. College football officiating is collaborative, and we look forward to working with John and the coordinators of the other FBS conferences, as well as our new national coordinator, Steve Shaw." - Mike Aresco, American Athletic Conference Commissioner "I worked with John early in his career and recognized his leadership qualities very early on. He exhibits a quiet leadership that will serve him well in this position. He will do a great job in the SEC." - Johnny Grier, the NFL's first African-American to work in the referee position, back judge in Super Bowl XXII and former Supervisor of Football Officials for the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). "The characteristics you want in an official are to be objective and fair, and for a coordinator you want consistency, honesty and openness. John will bring all of those traits to this position for the SEC. He is a good listener and his work ethic speaks volumes." -- Gene Steratore, former NFL official and current rules analyst for CBS Sports "John has been a highly successful and respected official going back to his days in the old Big East. His work ethic and integrity will serve him well in his new position." -- former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese
  15. I think we can shut this down. Entire thread serves no purpose.
  16. It makes absolutely no difference what time the game is. Arena will be packed and we'll be ready.
  17. This really isn't news. He's been arrested for failing to pay child support before if my memory is right. He's a douche and a loser.
  18. You need to dial back that cheating talk, given who is coaching your team. Also, remember you are a guest here.
  19. We outrebounded them 42-28 including 17 offensive rebounds. That's unbelievable. Teams combined for 68 free throw attempts with Auburn getting 44 of those.
  20. I'm taking this to mean you are unhappy with the talent level we have? How could anybody on earth that is an Auburn fan be unhappy with our current talent level. It's the best its ever been in the history of Auburn basketball for the last 2-3 years and keeps getting better. Granted, I wish we had more consistent 3 point shooters this season, but I think part of that is coming from being spoiled by what we had with Bryce Brown and Jared Harper. They were ridiculously good. Pearl is definitely accountable for the talent level we have and I couldn't be happier with who he has brought into this program in recent years. Game Day is coming to Auburn. That NEVER happens but it's happening Saturday because of Bruce Pearl and the talent and success we have in this program. TONS of teams would love to be 18-2 right now.
  21. College Game Day just announced they will be coming to Auburn for the first time ever next saturday for our matchup with Kentucky. This is HUGE.
  22. Why would anybody think this is funny? This is an awful situation. Punishments announced weren't strong enough. Would love to see the NCAA step in here and extend those suspensions levied by the conference. None of this has any place in the game and it all starts with the idiot that blocked the shot then seeks out the opponent and stands over him. He (among others) should be ruled permanently ineligible. That kind of behaviour is inexcusable.
  23. He's nowhere near pensacola. Florida Gulf Coast is in Fort Myers.
  24. I officiate here in Pensacola and I've been doing it for 28 years. The last 20 as a backjudge.
