Jay Bilas: "Worst call in history of basketball" (OSU/Maryland) [VIDEO]

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=12250361&ex_cid=espnFB

It's a pretty bad call. But Bilas' reaction is hyperbolic and hilarious to me.

Anytime, anyone goes right to "best/worst (X) ever" (and it's happening more frequently), take them with the entire salt mine.

Bad positioning on Wymer's part. This is why you START at the FTLE guys; if you are above it like the C in this play you have worse rebounding angles.

When I read the thread title, I thought Bilas was at MY game last night.

If you can't see between the players, or don't see clear displacement, don't blow your whistle.

I'm sure he wants it back.

I thought that he was at my game last night. Wait, you can keep him!

The replay looking from above shows space between the two players involved at the moment of the rebound. That would be a tough look for the C. The contact only occurs at the end of the play. The calling official went with what he saw. Don't we all - correct or incorrect.

Didn't Wymer work the championship game last year?

Good officials miss calls. Yawn.

Actually, the "worst call in the history of basketball" was the call to Bilas' house asking him to work this game.

I've seen much worse misses.

Bilas is a self-absorbed a** clown. He kicks rules every night. I called him out on Twitter a while back and he stuck to his guns on a rule when he was clearly wrong.

I can imagine the blog post he'd write after I had him escorted out.

He calls it "over the back". That right there makes the rest of his diatribe meaningless.
