But thereís a system in place to challenge the refs if they mess up like this. Correct me if Iím wrong, but the punishment is a time out of youíre wrong. What was Denver saving the time out for there? I think the DU coach deserves just as much blame for not challenging. I mean, he clearly didnít care about UMass getting rest from a review, he wanted one. Just didnít want to lose his time out? I donít get it.
The NCAA did the right thing afterwards by suspending him. Sucks for his teammates and the fans of the team, but jumping to elbow someone in the head isnít acceptable.
Froma UMass fanís perspective, Vegara or Bozzo is going to be able to dress tonight and they wouldnít have otherwise. Mika is going to get more playing time. I hope they take advantage of this opportunity.
Whatever happens tonight, itís been a hell of a season. Iím really proud to be a UMass alumni, fan, and season ticket holder.
