A visitor to wiseguys.com relayed this 2017 brutal money line loss to me. UC Santa Barbara scores to go up by two with one second on the clock. Cal Poly heaves an inbound pass to half court. The clock doesn’t start till another half court heave at the basket fails. Whistle, foul with .3 of a second on the home court clock. The Cal Poly heaver gets three foul shots and drains all three. Cal Poly wins 80-79. I have no answer how we handicap and overcome bad calls and no calls in baskets and football. That's both pros and colleges.
- Ever wonder what makes grown men dress up in a costume, go to a football stadium and cheer like a frat boy for a bunch of NFL players who don't give a rats ass about him or the city they represent.
Screw the rules go back and correct an obvious mistake & make it right. The Kentucky Derby got it right in their decision to DQ Maximum Security. A classic bad beat but it was a righteous decision not like so many recent bad and missed calls that turned entire seasons around. Talk about bad beats how about the ignored pass interference in the NFC Championship game that cost the NO Saints their rightful Super Bowl appearance. A blatant no call that will haunt the franchise forever. Then there's the incorrect call that eliminated the LV Golden Knights from the Stanly Cup playoffs. Both the NFL and NHL admitted they were wrong in these instances but the calls should have been corrected immediately no matter what the absurd replay rules say. It was that crucial. Then we witness a missed double dribble and resultant three foul shots with .06 on the clock that cost Auburn a place in the Final Four. How can we handicap this crap? We can't.
