Tough situation to be in: What do you have on this one out of Boston last night?

Headline should read, "Lack of pass to open teammate decides Harvard-Penn game".

Look, the announcer said, "he was there early." What more need be said?

Tough situation?

Why is it a tough situation? The defender established LGP outside the restricted area before the shooter went airborne. We get paid - and in the case of D-I officials, quite a bit - to make those calls.

I have a correct call by the official who was in perfect position with a great view of the play. What's tough about it?

#1, the call didn't decide the game.

#2, it's a great call.

#3, it wasn't that difficult of a call IMO.

It is only tough if you are a fanboy.

My thinking as well but I let it ride.

His only other post was not in praise of officials either, so I'm sure you're correct.

It's Lin-Sane ...

Jeremy Lin would have never charged in that situation.
