Can you reference what those "missed calls in big time games" are please?

I have a FB friend that is also a basketball official that has been going on and on about the officiating. Kind of funny Higgins is going to the Final Four. So I guess they will get their wish, he will not see them in the Final Four.

Peace

I watched the 3 plays he questioned and agreed with the decision made on the floor on all 3. UK fans need to take off their blue tinted glasses...

Really good official, but I never again want to hear that "how someone runs" is an important criteria for getting ahead in NCAA hoops.

I never intended to suggest that it is an important criteria or that it should be....but it does look goofy and good officials are often passed by due to how they look on the floor.

I have a way to solve a lot of the "how you run" situation. Do not be fat!!! If you want to be seen as someone that cannot run, then get in the gym, push away the big plates, eat better and then when these kids are running fast, no one will suggest that you cannot keep up. I have been doing this for over 20 years and the one thing I cannot ever worry about people saying about me is that I was too big and could not keep up. And it is based on many choices in life and what I do in the off season. And I was not happy BTW with my overall fitness this year, but I did some things to improve it. But we have many high school officials that look like the plumber that cannot pull his pants up and then complain when they are passed over by a guy that runs and looks like he or she can play. Control what you can control, but this is something you can control on so many levels.

Peace

I never once said anything about weight in my post. Way to take what I wrote and interpret it completely wrong.

90% of what is posted about Anderson on social media is on how he high steps up and down the floor. Great that Collins ignores that stuff, but a lot of officials wouldn't be able to get past such a thing.

The funny part is I was not really responding to you. I just choose not to put the comments in quotes as it appears any comments are sensitive to what is said by certain people. Which is fine, but my comments were not even about you or in response to you directly.

Peace
