BTW, someone should tell them they're down 20 and to start speeding up the offense. This is no time for deliberate possessions.
TheA_Bomb said:What's weak is the SJU fans understanding of my first post. I am not blaming the Refs for SLU playing badly I am saying that their terrible calls are hurting a team that is already struggling offensively. At the time I posted both teams were playing badly offensively and both were doing OK defensively. SLU was unable to get into any rythymn 1. because they came out tight and 2. because of some of the bad traveling calls and over the back calls that gave the ball back to SJU. Maybe you don't notice the terrible officiating because you don't want to notice it, your desensitized to it, or because you just don't want to admit the edge that SJU is getting because of it. SJU only started taking it to SLU at the end of the 1st half. SLU is struggling no doubt but we don't need SJU and THE REFS to both kick us when we are down.
Officiating makes a difference if the first four trips down the floor you have 4 questionable fouls on you called and then for some reason your off all game.
Bomb - I was agreeing with you until you brought up the refs again. There are plenty of opportunities to rip the refs. Today was not one of them.TheA_Bomb said:Martelli has us figured out and our young team couldn't overcome the tough d to look like they belonged in this game. This game was frustrating from all angles. I find some solace in the fact that we only start one senior and only lose 1 senior of any consequene, Drejaj. SLU is now left wondering if we will get an NIT bid but if they will play the way they did today they don't deserve one. From 9-21 to 16-13 is tolerable. Overall I am dissatisfied with the A10 so far. This year as a conference we couldn't crack the RPI code, will only get two teams in the dance b/c GW lost, have questions about academic qualifications of players, and my fellow posters can't even concede that the refs suck. I like being in a conference with similar schools and I do think it will get better as will SLU next year....... how many times have I had to say next year? I feel like a Cubs fan.
Except it's not the same because St. Lo is not a valid name for your school whille UNCC is sufficiently valid that the UNCC store sells logo with school name UNCC on it. The Charlotte fans have a well-deserved inferiority complex down here in the tarheel state. Their institution was actually Charlotte College befdore it became UNCC. It never was nor is Charlotte University. "Charlotte" is a nickname. The name of the institution is UNC Charlotte. The proper abbreviation and the name it was commonly known by is/was UNCC. The institution made a choice to call its athletic teams "Charlotte 49ers" but the institution remains UNCC. For more information on thre history of UNCC please go to www.UNCC.eduTheA_Bomb said:...sorry to be so irratible, it's just kind of like how the Charlotte fans now like to be called that and not UNCC****
