We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Yep, terrible officiating, like most of the big games in the B1G. All I hope is that UM gets a lot of the homecourt treatment on sunday.
Yep, watched bits and pieces and there were tons of questionable calls on OSU..
Saw this one where Craft basically wrestled the ball away from an IU guy on a rebound, and within 1/2 second, Teddy called for a jump ball when it was clear Craft had control..
Ideal situation is UM loses today.. then beats IU to backdoor MSU into B1G Title.. much like the opposite of last season
It's beyond choking. I genuinely don't understand it.
And for the conspiracy theorists, the only plausible theory is the B1G pumping up Indiana to try and get them a 1 seed.
It's terrible officiating, regardless of why.
laconophilia is everywhere...
It's a disgrace. Why the league doesn't do something about Valentine is a mystery.
There's no conspiracy theories or pressure from Delaney, it's just shitty work. Combine it with Valentine's flare for the dramatic, and the league should no longer ignore what's taking away from some great competition.
And typically I believe B1G refs won't ref B1G games in the NCAAs..
I really think that's part of why MSU has had so much success... the in your face, aggressive D that draws countless fouls in the B1G doesn't get called in the tournament.. that and the fact flopping isn't tolerated nearly as much
I don't think there's conspriacy in football either.. but didn't TV Ted do the IU/UM round 1 @IU? I thought that game was very fairly called (outside a couple ? calls) and there were more plan ons and no ticky tack fouls
I seriously wish the B10 would take measures to improve the reffing and I'm not coming at it from an angle of sour grapes or blaming our losses on this stuff, but there's some serious incompetence out there at moments that needs to be addressed.
You summed it up with your statement of 'shitty work'.
I called out the egrigious travel that Payne got away with right in front of the ref, I thought in the Mich/MSU game there was just mind blowingly crappy calls that went both ways. You guys clearly deserved the win but it's like come on the guy is doing a bad job out there.
Y2MK commented on it, Ducksworth commented on it so I'm not the only one that saw it.
What I've seen in the last couple of games is just gross incompetence.
Did you see the charging call where the defender was moving?
The league needs more of this.

@SpartansOrDie OSU commit RT @mjones__65 Just because you committed don't mean anything until you sign that letter that's were most people get lost at.
Man, what is wrong with this generation?
RT @JFowlerCBS A college coach told me he heard an SEC school thats hiring staffers to do one thing: Text top recruits 100-150 times per day
Did you see craft get out of the way of someone and get called for dodging him?
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
Read a good Drew Sharp article on recruiting insanity and the NCAA. I guess they're allowing coaches to text athletes during school now. So the Universities don't care about distracting kids during class, hypocrites.
HA.. no.. but that doesn't surprise me..
It seems as long as the defender is outside the arch, it's an auto-charge, regardless if the player slid under when the offensive guy was in the air, or was moving or was leaning into him or was already falling back before contact was made
Gee, I wonder what school that could possibly be...
Edit: after actually considering it, I realized I wouldn't put it past any of those schools to do this, with the possible exception of Vanderbilt.

Huh, Dakich said it was a good call, but what does he and the ref know aabout the game.
Isn't that allowed now with the recent change in recruiting rules?
Oh yeah, it's allowed. It's just taking it to a ridiculous level.
Said I didn't see it.. but going off of what your description of it, charge called when defender is moving his feet.. why would I think it would be a good call ?
Dakich said that even though the feet were moving, the shoulders were squared and the intent of the defender was to not be moving, so therefor it was a good charge. It really didn't make any sense, but I guess intent of not having your feet move is what matters.
I mean if the guy lowered his shoulder and plowed into him.. OK that's a charge..
but if he's in control and just making a basketball move and his feet aren't moving and it was a charge.. bad call
Again- I didn't see it

Burke/Olandipo 1st team AA
Thomas 2nd team AA
Player of the Year
Victor Oladipo, Indiana: The Hoosiers can thank the junior guard for their first Big Ten regular-season title since 2002. Oladipo can fill up a stat sheet. He's one of the top defensive players in the country and can electrify a crowd with a dunk or a 3-pointer. But the tone he sets with his energy and leadership is what has helped Indiana the most.
One of the Biggest Upsets
Penn State over Michigan (Feb. 27): The Nittany Lions hadn't won a Big Ten game all season when they took the court against No. 4 Michigan in State College. But Penn State connected on 10 shots from beyond the arc and got a combined 42 points from Jermaine Marshall and D.J. Newbill to pull off the stunner.

The only thing certain about the 2012-13 regular season has been its uncertainty. Jason King offers up the teams and players who made this season so memorable.
