    Damn, the ref was looking right at it, too!

    The double dribble off the players own leg was
    missed just like that out of bounds “save” TT got away with. Could have changed either game outcome.
    Basketball gods don’t like Pearl just like the rest of us. Congrats to UVA!!

    Next week, Bruce will get the same call from the NCAA that Few received two years ago: "sorry, we effed up."

    In fairness Jerome was quickly fouled so maybe ref didn’t see steps after he picked up ball. Plus the ref was focused on calling the deliberate foul and maybe pos Pearl actually warned him about that.

    the ref probably thought the defender got a hand on the ball...then he could dribble again...my guess

    There are few things worse than a referee anticipating a call before it happens. Leads to mistakes like the one we're talking about.

    Then that referee should be suspended for utter incompetence. He was in perfect position to call it.

    ETA: here's why referees should be questioned by reporters after a game, particularly during high visibility games. They should not be protected from legitimate scrutiny.

    Not to mention there was arguably a foul before he even double dribbled. (ticky tack but Auburn's strategy was clear)

    The biggest bonehead decision was on Auburn fouling Jerome after the double dribble. Let him take the off balance, nearly half court three to win. That's a crazy low% shot.

    The NCAA breathes a sigh of relief...there won't be any talk of vacated titles after the trial of Chuck Person.

    They showed Pearl talking to the ref just earlier, hand on the refs shoulder and quite animated.

    whats he gonna say...we have replay from 4 angles in slow motion no pressure...he says I made a mistake does Pearl feel better?

    same with TT out of bounds play...3 refs missed it and what can be said...human error. happens

    Not that my heart is into it, but I guess I'll be rooting for Texas Tech. They would be the first team from Texas to win the NC since Texas Western won it in 1966.

    Easier said then done, but don't foul on a difficult 3 point shot in the closing seconds, when sending the shooter to the line with free throws can win it.

    Maybe, but no one was watching the WCC game and even fewer cared..... I thought it was a very entertaining game on the biggest stage and for a huge prize...between two of the very best teams in the country...
