Has anyone else seen a rise in terrible officiating this season?

Been watching ACC basketball my whole life. Their ****ty officiating is taking over other conferences. A new Karl Hess is hired everyday.

It's what happens when there is more "emphasis" put on certain rules. More flagrant foul calls then ever.

Awful year. Will never stop being salty about the blown call in this game


The ACC on Sunday acknowledged that officials failed to change the possession arrow in the second half of Saturday's Maryland-Duke game.

The conference said "a miscommunication occurred between the officials and the table crew" that led to Duke retaining the possession arrow after earning possession from a jump ball with 16:58 left in the game.

The next tie-up came with 6:39 to go and Maryland leading 56-54. Instead of giving the ball to the Terrapins, the arrow allowed Duke to keep possession. The Blue Devils' Amile Jefferson scored on a layup from the ensuing inbound pass to tie the score.

Duke went on to win 69-67 after Maryland forward Charles Mitchell's shot in the final seconds fell off the rim.

"The matter has been and will be handled internally by the league office," the ACC said in a statement.

League spokeswoman Amy Akola told the Baltimore Sun that the conference would not be changing the outcome of the game because of the botched call.

Mind the flagrant calls far less than the excessive time to review and enforce them. Someone might have swung an elbow, let's completely disrupt the game with a five minute delay to look at it on video, look some more, make a decision, go back and look again, talk it over with both coaches, then change the call based on one of the coaches whining about it.
