THANK'S REFS for DOING ANOTHER SPLENDID JOB. MCLINTON WAS MERELY HITTING A PLAYER FOR HITTING HIM. IT'S AMAZING THE REFS CONVENIENTLY DON'T SEE THAT. ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC.
BY THE WAY NCAA, WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE MONIES PAID TO REGGIE BUSH IN COLLEGE. THAT CONVENIENTLY WENT AWAY, TOO? PATHETIC NCAA!

Jack, Jack...I know the sleazeball from Ohio State hit you first. Next time, fall on the floor in agony - do not hit back. Those old referees are too slow to see the initial slap, but they always see the response. Retaliate and you will get thrown out. Take a dive and the sleazy Buckeye gets thrown out. Which would make you feel better in the long run?
total bs

Completely ridiculous how Jack got "jacked" when he was responding to that thug's wiping his face- all right in front of the refs... don't those idiot refs know that this goes on? AND they saw the replay?????

McClinton was wrong in what he did but if the referees watched the video they can see the Ohio State player brush his face first with a swipe which made the whole thing take place. For fans and scouts and all of the people who were watching on TV to see this NBA prospect play and on fire... man, the referees certainly have lost perspective of what they are supposed to do. I know someone who drove a long way to go to that game and a few minutes into the game the best player gets thrown out in a situation where he did not really have clenched closed fists and could have just gotten a flagrant foul and nothing more.

ABSOLUTELY A HORROR SHOW FOR ESPN, THE EVENT AND also for the player who was wrong but he certainly did not have to be punished that harshly.

Oh, and that coach from OHIO State. A total sleaze ball for actively procuring and instigating the expulsion of McClinton from the game for something that COMMON, COMMON ....... REFEREES AND NCAA ..... Shame shame where is your contractual obligation to television viewers, people that paid big money to go to the game.

It was clear as day that the Ohio State player ACCIDENTALLY swiped McClinton when going for the ball, while McClinton PURPOSELY swung in retaliation at the Ohio State player.

Also good to cry like babies about the officiating after your thugs lose.

The Hurri-lames lost because they didn't play any defense in the second half, giving up 51 points, not because of any calls.

And watching the game, McClinton never guarded Ohio State's No. 21, who scored 19 points in the second half.

Good thing McClinton didn't have a football helmet.

Whine whine whine whine whine complain complain complain.You lost, your team forgot to play defense in the second half and get on with it. Guess what McClinton was accidentally hit in the face the player was sticking his arms out like a defender does and accidentally hit his face. Quckly stopped and turned around to find McClinton taking a swipe at him on purpose. That's why nhe got ejected. Everytime a Miami team loses to OSU the fans have 10 billion sad pathetic excuses. If one player is out and that affects your team that much you need a better bench. BTW i'm sure Miami will be very competitive this year the good thing about Basketball is teams can have a few losses and not have it rui their season.
