ACC admits to officiating mistake during NCSU vs. WFU game

Certainly can’t blame every loss the on the refs, but at least they owned up to a mistake. They have managed to keep it pretty fair now that King Karl is out of the picture.

The ACC acknowledged that the game officials made a mistake toward the end of Wake Forest’s 88-84 win over N.C. State on Tuesday evening. Through some intense investigating by Giglio and a FOIA request, the News & Observer obtained a copy of Yow’s email on Thursday. The email stated that Wake Forest forward Devin Thomas should have been called for a flagrant one foul with 40.5 seconds left in the game.

Under NCAA rules, a flagrant one foul is “non-excessive” contact, such as a player swinging an elbow, which results in two free throws and possession of the ball. If the flagrant foul had been correctly called, the Wolfpack would have gotten 4 free throws in addition to possession of the ball.

It doesn’t really do much good to dwell over the “what ifs” of the game, as hard as that may be. Check out the full article here for more details of missed call and Gottfried’s thoughts on the matter.

    Just imagine if they wouldn’t have given Jerian Grant an extra free throw in of a game that was tied at the end of regulation. Entire season would look different. The incompetence is no surprise.

    “If the flagrant foul had been correctly called, the Wolfpack would have gotten 4 free throws in addition to possession of the ball.”

    “…which would have promptly been followed by miss, miss, hit, miss, baseline travel, WF ball.”

    What?? Refs make mistakes??? (did Hell freeze over and I missed it?)

    Notice they are only acknowledging late game errors in both the WF and VT games? So they are saying those are the only mistakes they made? No, they are acknowledging that those two

      likely affected the outcome of the games!

    Hey guys, what about the rest? The missed calls? The inconsistent calls?
    I think they should be writing letters every week, probably to every ACC school.

    Game shouldn’t EVER hinge on a refs call. NCSU didn’t come to play, the program is very, very mediocre…players not developing nor playing/believing to win.
    No excellence.
