I was ready to revive a chant from the 1990s.

Here's the story... The ND men were playing Kentucky in South Bend before joining the Big East. They weren't very good, but they game Kentucky a tough game.

One of the refs, the only one who happened to be bald, made terrible call after terrible call. It started with the students; but in a matter of seconds the whole arena was chanting, "Bald guy sucks! Bald Guy sucks! Bald guy sucks..."

Tonight there was one bald guy who happened to be the worst ref in a very poor crew. I was ready to revive the chant.


I only remember who made two specific calls.

Woman with the pony tail that called the kick and then the make-up illegal screen. She might've called the illegal screen on our end, which I think was a bad call, but I didn't watch the replay on that one. Either way, it was a very horrible, very visible minute for her.

seemed to indicate the ball did in fact tough the toe of Mabrey's shoe. Just my opinion.

I thought the worst call was the illegal screen on Koko. I think the men are supposed to have their arms fully extended downward, not sure about the women (hers were not). Other than that it seemed completely legal.


Most referees will say they never do make-up calls

but that was about as obvious a make-up call as I have ever seen,
