Agreed. His mother's death had more impact on him than most people realize. Last night I'm sure was pretty emotional for him thinking things through. Then again today when he addresses the team. If he doesn't, then I'll feel differently.He lost his mom and likely had an emotional week. I’ll give him a pass on this. He was right there and had Michigan beat.
Wow. You are absolutely correct. https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2016/6...e-nba-is-absolutely-rigged-after-steph-fouledHe never said it. This entire thread is based on a quote attributed to him. Ayesha Curry tweeted it years ago.
It's offensive pass interference if the throw goes past the line of scrimmage (which it did). This seems like an obvious illegal pick play, but I have a hard time feeling sorry for BB.well he wasn't hindering anyone's path. But he was blocking. So could be I am unclear on the rule. A normal pick play is when the WR gets in the path of the defender and they run into each other. This wasn't so obvious to me. And I'm not sure that can be the rule. The defender gets to touch the offensive player within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage, why can't the offensive player touch him?
The timing and magnitude of the calls.Illinois had 4 penalties for 40 yards
Michigan had 4 penalties for 25 yards
What am I missing here?
He's not wrong, Kevin Warren turned a corrupt B1G and made it far worse.
He's desperately trying to compete with the SEC and that means shitting on all the little guys of the league. Minnesota has been the bottom end of this many times and it will not get better, especially under Kevin Warren.
It's a league of o$u, scUM and ped state.
What's it like being so naive? How long have you been a fan for? How much of this have you witnessed:What’s it like actually believing in crap like this? What has Warren done to make the BIG corrupt? I’m a long time season ticket holder of football, basketball, and hockey. I just don’t believe the deck is stacked against us. Stop playing the “little guy” card. It’s an even playing field and we need to step.
There were like three more on the same drive! One was a controversial catch, another was PI against Illinois, and another was Michigan QB picking up his own fumble when his knee was on the ground, yet he was allowed to get up and complete a pass.So one call or were there others?
I would agree referees are ethical and go into the game without bias at almost all levels.
But, you think 104,000 people and Harbaugh can't intimidate a guy on occasion?
100% home teams can often get the benefit of calls and non calls....just human nature.
Refs joke about getting to their car safely after a game...it's in their head and it results in hesitation with some guys.
Don't know who pays the refs but in high school the home school pays the refs...another subtle factor...you don't want "that conversation" from the guy paying you to pick up your check.
All subtle stuff, it adds up.
Has BB said stuff to refs over the acceptable line today or in prior games? Nobody is supposed to carry grudges but these decisions happen very fast.
Just saying it is human guys reffing...they miss cals innocently and they miss calls due to hesitation stemming from consequences they aren't willing to hear about in the moment.
It's not a perfect science but it is not intentionally corrupt either imo
Nope, sorry I just don’t see any bias. I’m not naive, I’m just not a conspiracy theorist. Your whining is what losers do.What's it like being so naive? How long have you been a fan for? How much of this have you witnessed:
1. Terrible calls against Gophers when playing Kentucky in the Final 4.
2. Refs trying to get McCarville fouled out against Duke in the Elite 8.
3. tOSU DB clearly targeting MBS22 in season-opener last year and knocking him out.
Those 3 just jump out right away, I'm sure some others can add some more.
Clearly the B1G wanted an undefeated Michigan team heading into "the game" and they got it. With both tOSU and Michigan undefeated, and the west so weak, it's virtually a guarantee that the winner of "the game" gets a playoff invite, and getting a team into the CFP is the overall goal for the people running B1G football.
But you do you, Rudy. Keep believin'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You don't think college conferences give good officiating to their top teams? Or that the NFL gives it to teams with popular quarterbacks? Or to teams like the Saints after Katrina?Nope, sorry I just don’t see any bias. I’m not naive, I’m just not a conspiracy theorist. Your whining is what losers do.
I was going to bring up the Saints too, but for a different reason. Right after the Rams moved back to LA, it was the Rams vs. Saints in the NFC Championship game and wouldn't ya know it, a "bad call" cost the Saints the game and now one of the largest media markets has a team in the Super Bowl. Perfect way to pump up a new franchise in town.You don't think college conferences give good officiating to their top teams? Or that the NFL gives it to teams with popular quarterbacks? Or to teams like the Saints after Katrina?
There's WAY too much solid clear evidence that officiating is biased. They can control many outcomes.
You don't see it, or you're purposefully not trying to find it because it'll ruin your fandom?Nope, sorry I just don’t see any bias. I’m not naive, I’m just not a conspiracy theorist. Your whining is what losers do.
