StacheBlog: Jobbed Worse Than the Seahawks.

Well, I guess the Pac-NW was due some referee love after SuperNap XL. So they gave a regular seasons West Coast Conference game to the 'Zags. Seems fair. Top 5 ludicrous calls.

5. The 'Stache Not Getting a Technical for Yelling at the refs. He bitched enough I could make this one 6-10 as well.

4. The 'Stache not getting T'ed up for slamming the ball in the refs face.

3. The 'Stache not fouling out dunking on a guy taking a charge with a minute left.

2. The hometown scorekeeper ...forgetting to start the clock on the Zags last possesion.

1. After getting at least 2 seconds to get a shot off with .5 seconds left and the game tied, the trail ref called a phantom foul from central Idaho.

But hey, a win's a win, right?

In seriousness, this game is why Gonzaga will lose in the second or third round - they'll play a crappy, overtly physical team from say the Big East or the Big ElevenTen, who will play Riley-era Knick ThugBall. Morrison will get pushed around, whine, shoot 6-20 and they'll lose by 15. Which will cause approximately 1/3 of the population to promise to never pick them to do anything again because they are now behind the 63 year-old mail room lady whose picks are a mixture of favorite colors and Mascot "Queien es mas macho" in the Office Pool of Questionable Legality.

You do of course recall the talking head from ESPN who was out picked during the NCAA tournament pool by his ancient, non-basketball fan mom, who claimed that her favorite was "Ole (pronounced O-Lay) Miss"!!!!!
