    The head of officials should be asked to step down immediately.

    It looks fine for those refs, but the Chief Official that decided not to say anything may have some explaining to do.

    A. Why didn't the officials get the same angles as the viewing audience?

    2. Why did the chief of officials ultimately "keep his whistle in his pocket"?

    D. Ultimately not a game-changer.
    No way for you to make that determination. I think Duke still wins the game but there is a world of difference between getting the ball back down 5 with 1:53 left and getting the ball back down 8 with 1:24 left. WORLD of difference.

    Then you could still have refs available to verify if the player made the right or wrong call. Just a thought.

    Now the VP of the NCAA says they (officials) saw all of the angles shown on CBS. Something is very funny here.
