Making the board a little less insufferable

Every touch foul called on us. Yet they're over the back on rebounds and reaching in with no calls. Sick of this .
I think this game is actually well officiated. It better be, the head of NCAA refs is there.
I will agree the refs sucked, but it was truly both ways. The touch calls were awful for both teams and they missed some on our guys too. The reality is this team has not idea how to step on the other teams neck when they get up 12-15 points, it's painful.. They make 3 good plays in a row or more than hand it back with stupidity. Need to tighten up the ship if they are to win against Cincy, Tulsa or SMU the rest of the year.
I've commented about this during several game chats, but another significant downside of being in the AAC is that we will consistently get officials who are not as good as they might get in the top conferences - and even those guys aren't the premier basketball refs. There are only so many refs to go around and we get the middle of an imperfect to begin with crop. Unfortunately one of the problems with worse than good refs is they tend to be inconsistent - sometimes we get the benefit of that, other times we don't and it's difficult to take. Particularly with a team that has so little margin for error.Every time someone criticizes the refs it turns into an forum about how UCONN is. Give it a rest. We deserve better officiating.
Yes, I was at the game. Yes in the first half the refs were pretty bad to UCONN. not the worst I've ever seen, but not good. Ticky tack fouls on the guards. Turning BRimah into a pinball with no call on the other hand. I think it's usually called a lack of consistency. Second half wasn't as blatant but both teams had a reason to complain. And yes, it did impact the flow of the game.
What I never will understand is that these guys get paid. They are not doing it out of the goodness of their heart.They supposedly are evaluated. But I never seem to see improvement as a result of this evaluation.
If the head of NCAA refs was really there, I would expect to see some pink slips for at least one on that crew.
the officiating was horrible, with far too many touch calls taking away from the flow of the game
then we went into some god awful funk that I really can't explain, it was just ugly to watch
then we finished strong (as we started), so I was happy again
