Jarbo for Pepperdine got his 5th on a pc as he went to the basket. Don't know who this announcer was but he strongly disagreed: "That was no offensive foul!" Replay comes up and clearly showed the call. Jarbo extended his right arm as he went up for the shot with his left. He had his wrist flexed sharply so on the contact, which was undeniable, he all but grabbed the defender's arm. There was a pause. I thought the guy was going to backtrack, but instead he announced, with conviction: "That is not a player control foul. The defender's arm did not even move, so there was no advantage gained."

They could just as well hire me to comment on terrorism and its effect on crude oil futures.
I swear, Gus, you'd argue with a possum.
It'd be easier than arguing with you, Woodrow.
