Punching a guy in the nuts, nope keep playing.
Taking someone's head pretty much off, nope keep playing.
Both of these should have been ejections last night, so the question is what does someone actually have to do to get ejected?
Shoving a guy's head into his nuts will surely get the f2.
Attempt of murder
"Leave the gun.....take the cannoli"
"It's not your job to be as confused as Nigel."
I'm curious myself. The play on Nix would've been a 15 yard penalty in the NFL. He didn't go for the ball, he went right after Nix's head/neck and tried to bulldog him. The only thing I can think of would be sucker punches.
Excessive contact to the head during a non basketball play.
Pretty much have to punch someone.
The real problem lies in the wording of the rule itself. Both F1 and F2 state that excessive contact results in the given foul. .
If excessive contact exists on a play, the ref has no guidance which foul to assess. Your NCAA at its best.
I'm pretty sure the only people that "don't understand" the rule is us. Not the officials. I'm sure that they will only call a flagrant 2 during a fight, or if someone just punches someone else and there is no mistaking it for accidental contact or a basketball play. The Duke guy deserved the flag1 last night but in no way should he have been ejected for that..
But the KU player should have been tossed - that's a clear Flagrant 2
Idk, we've seen a few examples of "nut punching" this year and, while I agree and think it was totally intentional and would have given the guy a flag2, I'm glad I'm not a ref. The kid was walking by McJesus and made the contact. The kid is smart. If he does it that way, they won't go as far as ejecting him because it's still up in the air to them as to whether or not it was on purpose. Gotta be completely sure if you're going to eject a guy.
When a Duke player trips over the three-point line while you are standing under the basket.
The reffing this season has just been so inconsistent. Like when Bitch McGary clotheslined Appling. Or Payne getting elbowed and on the ground and the ref pointing in his face saying he fouled someone.
And yet Harris gets called for "reaching in" on a routine play...
With these officials Craft would have been gone 5 mins into the second half.
If it happened to duke it's a f2.
I couldn't find the video on YouTube but I'm sure someone can find it - kid from Robert Morris had a sweet foul in the NIT vs Kentucky this year that was a flagrant 2. Anyone that remembers the bad boys era will appreciate it.
Possibly the 1 inch Bruce Lee death punch
I'm pretty sure the use of an unregistered firearm would have to be involved.
The knife needs to be able to stand up on its own in the player's back.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
Bingo! Had Nix made the foul, it would have been a f2. Just a bad night all around.
