All I said was that the officiating was poor in that game mainly because of a failure to properly assess the principle of verticality.
Oops...sorry. I fixed it.

Interesting. Was verticality applied correctly?

Let's just say that it's really not worth discussing this particular thread any further. Nothing to be gained from an officiating standpoint imo. Hopefully, it'll die...like it should have on the first page.

Anyone that thinks officiating is not a factor in every single game is in outer space. It rarely affects the outcome of a game but it is always a factor.
Just because JR is afraid to be critiqued doesn't mean the rest of us are. I can't get better without it. How much good does it do me for my partner to tell me I did a great job if he doesn't believe it? If I work with a lower ranked official and I have a subpar game, I will be the first one to tell him. And if he thinks it and doesn't tell me, how much good does that do anyone?
You are 100% correct. But don't tell too many people here that. They don't want to hear it. Remember, there's only one way to do things, right?

Dude. That statement just shows you really don't get it. Give it up already.

Let's apply that logic to another senario & make sure it all checks out:
2 x 3 = 6

If 2 & 3 are the factors, how do they not affect the outcome? Just saying...

I watched that game again this past weekend. They had it on in the East on Fox Baltimore. I'll iterate again what I stated...officiating was not a factor.

It's not a matter of anyone being afraid to be critiqued. It is a matter of people who very obviously don't have the experience, knowledge or competency to critique other officials still trying to do so. Let's get that little fact straight once again.

that's nice. did you see the Mack-Compton game(Div 1)- that was fun to watch. Well officiated. It was clear the better team won unlike the Div II game where the refs clearly affected how the teams played and substituted making them a factor.



even i don't want this thread to continue. geeez. NCAA time...

And the first-year expert on college officials strikes once again.....

Amazing....but not surprising.

Until he can show us he can do a better job than Jon Diebler, he should just shut up.

Maybe... just maybe, it could be worded as follows:

"the teams clearly didn't adjust to how the refs called the game thus there were a lot of whistles which caused a substitution pattern of early & often"
