I may be a conspiracy theorist, but the recent mess, which I called in February, looks a lot like the ownership of Rachel Phelps in "Major League" when she tried to make the team worse so she could move the franchise to Florida.

Why doesn't the BIG just switch basketball refs. to football and football refs. to basketball.  Couldn't be any worse.

Not an answer to your question, but an aside.  Why do officials have to take so much guff from coaches and not "T" them up?  And the bigger the name of the coach, the more he can get away with.  In the BIG, Coach Izzo comes to mind.  He can rant, rave and whine from the tipoff  and stalk all the way to mid court and the officials never "T" him up.  It seems to me if he and others would start getting their second "T" for their antics by the middle of the first period for a couple of games, they would return to coaching their teams instead of trying to bait the officials.

Are refs instructed not to "T" up coaches who are constantly whining, bitching and screaming at them?  A couple of games of being T'eed up twice early in the game and forcing him to "coach" from the locker room.  Maybe the refs are just too intimidated by the coach icons.

My first game there was Lucas', Havlicek's and Nowell's last home game in 1962 when they blew out the Hoosiers 90-65.  As a student the next years, I got to see Gary Bradds play every home game.  Oh the memories!  After one of those games, my vocal cords were shot and I couldn't hear myself speak anyway.  I will be there next Friday also.

I've solved the Herbie/"Fouler" and ABC/ESPN problem.  When they are televising, I mute the sound and listen to Paul Keels on the Fan.  With Direct TV, the video is about 20 seconds behind the Fan commentary, but it's worth it not having to listen to H & F incessantly drone on everything but the FB game.

Payback will not possibly occur until October 9 2021 when Purdue visits Ohio Stadium.  By then most of the players on both teams and some or more of our coaches will be gone.  Will anybody remember or care what happened on 10/20/18?  I will.  I have a long memory and payback (revenge) is a dish best served cold.
