    I hope Fran tells Jok, Cook, and Bohannon especially to watch out and be careful in the first 10 minutes in the Big Tourney. I have come to realize that some of these refs call it very tight the first half and let them play more in the second. We need to stay out of foul trouble like Jok got into today whether he was overamped on Sr Day or what. I thought one of his first two fouls was pretty light and could have been a no call. But whatever, make it through that first 10 minutes without getting two fouls.

    No need to be a snarky a-hole. Fair insight by uihawk82. Not unusual at all for officials to call a competition tight in the first minutes, then loosen up as play goes on. Fran, Peter and the boys need to recognize that.

    WTF?? Ok we will play it your way and go out and hack, shove, and climb all over every opposing player and see what the refs do. Have you not watched postseason Bball tourneys??

    There's a reason that, other than our 4 games in 4 days run in 2001 as a 6 seed that every other BTT champion has been a top 4 opinion is the horrible, front-running officiating...

    That was a big snarky on my part...

    Snarky? At least you owned up to it. I personally would have used a different word, rather than snarky.

    I'd just like to see what Pete can do without being tackled coming off screens.

    Jok has been getting called for a lot of cheap fouls and no calls all Big Ten season.

    Just need to try their best to play through any adversity brought on by the zebras.

    I thought it was a pretty solid observation, myself.

    In all fairness, I think Jok's gotten a few calls go his way as well, but maybe not enough to cover getting tackled so much.

    In all fairness, Peter is lucky to be alive. I have rarely seen a guy take the kind of beating he has this season. I have been at all the home games, dvr'd and re-watched all of the games, and when I have focused on Jok I have been appalled at what he has had to go through. Wisconsin and Illinois did the same thing to Jbo. The BT officials gene pool needs to be cleaned up so we can watch basketball again. Yes, I admit bias. But, my eyesight is pretty good and I have played and watched a lot of basketball.

    Freedom of movement has been dead in the B1G since the arrival of Izzo and Ryan and others, like Purdue and Illinois, have copied them. You absolutely cannot screen and cut anywhere in the lane without defenders grabbing, pulling, and otherwise impeding offensive flow. It's become damn near unwatchable. And the refs, with what appears to be lifetime gigs, have allowed it to go on.

    It's amazing how clean a high school game can be called with 2 refs, but B1G officiating is pathetic with 3 refs.

    To their credit, the refs did call fouls based on the emphasis on freedom of movement last season until little Tommy Izzo started throwing hissy fits and then it went out the window.
