The MWC will never be a player on the national level until they claen up the unbelieveable incompentence in officiating. David Hall has lived on his reputation far too long. He is allowed to referee for too many other conferences and is usually calling the MWC as his last game of the week. He is out of shape and has lessened the integrity of the game by his blatant refusal to follow the rules of the game. He should be suspended and also be banned from officiating ANY Lobo games in the future. If the MWC does not do this then they are ratifying and approving this referee and that is WRONG!

I know it won't change the outcome, but I hope the MWC does take some action against the officials, and offer us a public apology.

MWC officiating really dropped the ball on this game.
I have a feeling David Hall knows this too.
Question is will the MWC do anything about this error.
If David Hall returns to the pit this year he will feel "PIT-PAIN" Ouch!!
GOLOBOS!!

You guys are just a bunch of freaking babies. The bigger story is how the Lobos led and Alfraud let a 18 point lead get away. Lobo fans are so pathetic, especially Rudy C. They can never take a beating without blaming the refs in every game. Can it be that UNM is a small time program that will never matter on the national stage. Get a life.

I tend to agree with you to a certain point, but you are so wrong in implying that the referees should not be held accountable for their gross errors. The referees get paid a good sum of money, and they should be held to a higher standard than the regular person, especially when games are on the line, as was the UNM/TCU game. I have refereed for over 20 years, at the FIBA level and I have made mistakes, but when I did and could be corrected on the spot, I made sure that the right rules were enforced. You, I am sorry to say, are the one who needs to get a life.

No, I'm pretty sure that the story is the officiating. Let me look at the story above again, be right back....

Yup it is about the officiating.
