On ESPN.com yesterday, my son saw a claim that the ref who called the technical on Miller is a member of the LAPD. He has reffed in the PAC for five years including ten AZ-UCLA games. In those games he has called twice as many fouls against AZ as against UCLA. His crew has called 300 more against AZ. Of all PAC schools this ref has called far fewer fouls and technicals against UCLA than any other school. I could not find the link today, but if this is close to true, I have to wonder if the league office looks at this kind of stat. If so, how does this guy get assigned to UCLA games?
Reminds me of when we found out a few years ago that the head of officials for the entire NCAA for all of Rat Face's big runs was a Puke alumnus.

Great Headline Rnger LOL
In one of the other threads, was trying to find it quickly but could not, someone put up a link that broke down this idiots games and how many fould he has called per school in the last 5 years. It was crazy. I will try to find it.
Overall through his career his fouls per game for Ariozna and UCLA are right at 16. HOWERVER, this year his fouls per game for Arizona is 15.7 to just 12.5 for UCLA.
He was one of the officials in all three meetings this year. Arizona had a 49-39 foul "advantage" but was actually called for less fouls in Westwood (11-14). The other two games Arizona had +6 fouls for each game.

Nice find Brad. My argument when it comes to "fouls" isn't the number of total fouls whistled, but the fouls that actually put players at the foul line shooting free throws. Two teams can each have 16 fouls, but one gets all its calls on the shot while the other gets a bunch of perimeter touch fouls, screens and stuff that might give you the basketball but don't result in direct opportunities to points at the foul line.
This will be a concern for me tomorrow against Belmont. Will it be Arizona getting the "right" calls and earning free throws or will it be Belmont at the foul line 20+ times tomorrow?

In the last game against UCLA it was more the fouls that were NOT called...
NJ getting raked, all the moving picks and the over the back rebounding they let them get way with down the stretch...
BEAR DOWN boys... The best is yet to come....
Very true. Also, UA was +6 in whistles and the Bruins got 12 extra FTs in a 2-point game so pretty significant disparity.
My question would be how many fouls in the close game compared to our "blow out"?
There is no reason for him to call or not call fouls where needed when ucla is ahead...but they were behind and he found a way to Help them along. Crooked asswipe cop
That was my point Zip, just curious but I am betting he called more on us in the close games.
