I hate complaining about the refs, but it really is getting out of hand. For the most part the really do call it both ways, but they call EVERYTHING. 53 fouls called last night. 56 against Xavier at MSG. Its ruining the game. Absolutely no flow. How can you expect to enjoy a game when they are blowing the whistle on average more than once a minute? And the stats arent deceiving, these are not intentional fouls by the trailing team to slow down clock at the end of hte game. Both teams in double bonus last night with 12 minutes left in the game? The old big east was known as being tough, and the refs let them play the game. I miss that!

Last night was bad. Jamie Luckie is the worst, he calls fouls 50ft from the basket but if you get hit driving no harm no foul.

Ruining the game, making many games hard to watch in BE. I'm not sure how other conferences are faring, but this appears to be a big issue meriting BE executive review.

Its horrible. Every drive to the hoop is a foul call. Even when the offensive player initiates the contact. Bashir reaps the benefit of a lot of these calls calls because of his game, but I still hate them. Let the kids play!

It's everywhere, I watch as many games as I can. While I agree with freedom of movement rules, the calling of fouls 50-60 ft from the basket where nobody is gaining an advantage is killing the game. It seems like guys get hit at the rim and no call, very frustrating to watch.

As Stringer Bell once said, "Get it straight, your territory ain't shi$ if the product is weak." Right now the product is weak with how games are being officiated.

They call a crazy number of fouls because they are incapable of controlling games. I would prefer that they meet with coaches before game time and tell them that they will let the kids play but that excessively rough play will be penalized.

In addition to watching most B.E. games and some ACC games most analysts have been critical of the officiating. Their signature call is, "Let them play." And yet some of the announcers brag about the capability of the officials doing our games. Personally, I don't think the B.E. refs are good at all.
