Love it. This proves that the fans weren't even the focal point of e blame. Thanks for the pic. The ASSU bech rushed the court without calling timeout (while the negligent flopped was still hanging on the rim).
So much for rules...
Ace, does Miller even say anything behind the scenes?
35% FG, 23% 3pt FG and 53.3% from the freethrow line... That's our offense. But yea.. They should have called 2T's
They should never be in a position to rely on 2T's. If you need those to win, then you need to look in the mirror a little closer. They had plenty of opportunities to pull away and they just kept giving it away. Players play and they just were not in it tonight. ACE would know, but I would doubt Miller blames the game on not getting 2T's. Just my opinion of course, but I'm sure he would rather have a few of the FT's that were missed and maybe a couple of Gabe's 9 missed shots.
the refs are pussies though
So the refs should never make calls for Wazzu? Their team is so miserable on offense that they should just 'make more shots' instead of using their 20 FT attempts per game as a weapon.
I don't know if the rule book should be thrown out because a team sucks.
Our team played like **** on offense, but the refs didn't have to give up
Moosety , you are spot on. We have no O. The free throws are just ridiculous. Inexcusable
Disgraceful actions by ASSu fan, gutless referees, clueless PAC 12 commissioner (still no Direct TV deal). Larry Scott is the same jackass that told Miller to apologize to disgraced ref Ed Rush who he had to relieve from his duties. Tired of this WWE conference embarrassing itself on national TV.
Yeah, as if last night's game didn't prove that the Pac-12 and it's officials have a vendetta against Coach Miller....
We lost, and we deserved to lose with our play. But a blatant re-writing of the rules, to our consistent detriment, is disturbing.
The game never should have come down to the technicals but that's no excuse for the refs not calling them. You call those fouls no matter the situation. No excuses.

I can't imagine how lousy I'd feel if the refs had called two technicals and we'd won by a point. Sorry, but I don't want to win that way. Yeah, the refs were supposed to call the techs. Yeah, it would be following the rules. But for me that game was lost when we failed to convert at the end of regulation, end of first OT, and end of second OT.
Let's find our shooting touch, drown Utah and Colorado, and the world will be a much brighter place next Monday.
The officials in this conference (with few exceptions) will not respect Coach Miller until he makes the Final Four or wins the NC. Lute seemed to get the benefit of the doubt during games after we won it all in 97.
All we have to do is get through the PAC-12 tournament and be rid of the PAC-12 officials. When we get to the NCAA Tournament, we will have well-qualified officials work our games that will let us play and allow us to take advantage of our strength inside. AND they will be consistent throughout the game!
(OK, off my soapbox now)
