In case you missed it, Miami coach Frank Haith was ejected from this evening’s basketball game at Carolina following a 10 second sequence of no less than 3 bad (if not flagrantly) missed calls. It was nice to see a coach stand up for his team and declare that he was not going to turn the other cheek to the corrupt officiating that has infested our once great conference.

Thanks to the N&O for this blog entry. They have turned our attention to the following YouTube video from last night. We TOLD YOU that the ACC is going to hate the internets!! Folks, this is only the beginning of a revolution.
In the span of 28 seconds, this is what Karl Hess, Michael Kitts and Bob Donato missed:
â€¢ A goaltending on Brandan Wright
â€¢ A push on Tyler Hansbrough
â€¢ A dead ball call
â€¢ An insult-to-injury three-point play after the missed dead ball call
â€¢ A no-call on Hansbrough and defending Brian Asbury
Now, even with every call, Haith wasn’t going to win this game. Heck, Ol’ Roy, Psycho T and the three freshmen could all get bounced and Miami wasn’t going to win. That’s not the point.
There should be more consistency by the officials, regardless of location and regardless of which coach is on the sidelines. Clearly, that’s not the case here.
