Pretty classless comment by the Toledo announcer on espn3 after the confrontation at the end of the half. "He's got no business being at the rockets bench so if something bad happens to him so be it.". Insinuating physical harm should come to Walker for jawing with their bench? And you don't even know who said what? Get freaking real man.

Don't know if the Toledo players on the bench started the mouthing but that's the type of thing we've seen from Walker over and over. Absolutely no reason for him to stand at the Toledo bench. Go about your business young man!

Yeah no kidding and I'm pretty sure the ESPN3 announcers are supposed to be 100 percent unbiased.

The ESPN3 announcers will most likely never be unbiased. They are all employees of the home school which is producing the broadcast.

Wow, whistles not going our way in the second half. 7-2 on fouls right now. That last one one Pippen looked like a complete phantom call.

That was some bush league bs. I can't believe we got a tech for that. And the clown announcer says he has every right to do that but Walker was out of line?

Will never understand it. They call a beauty of a first half with only 7 fouls then call everything in the second half. And UT's coach is still an ahole.

RE: Kent State @ Toledo
Ugh frustrating down the stretch but a good game in general. If we play like that every game we'll be ok. That technical foul was a huge moment in the game. It went from a 3 point lead to a one point deficit on that play. It's tough without knowing if something was said, but Avery generally is not a chatty player. The video was pretty clear though. A Toledo player pushing his way into the middle of the Kent State huddle and continuing to push his way in as they move. Finally after they get him out and he tries to push back in, Avery puts his forearm in his chest to hold him out (not even aggressive contact). And the result is a technical on us. I have no problem with the way Avery responded. That's absolute bush league and I would be embarrassed if a Kent player did that. It's really tough that something like that would cost us. I'd like to say keep your composure and don't let them bait you like that, but like I said, I think Avery responded appropriately. That's just tough. The 17-9 foul differential really hurt too.

Was the Toledo player trying to get to the FT line as he was the one who was fouled and next up to shoot his FT's? If he was, then he does have the right to position himself at the line and KSU should have moved their huddle. Most times the FT shooter will simply wait a few moments for the opposing huddle to break up. With all the barking that went on up to that point, don't imagine either team was going to display much sportsmanship...

I'm just reading up on the game. I had to check scores last night. Sounds like the second game the refs called far from even against us. Is this becoming a trend for some reason?
