The Refs Seem To Like This UCLA Team

A&M's Donald Sloan walked away with lacerated wrists, a bruised elbow and herpes. What he didn't get was two free shots.

Overlooked in a day filled with great games and big upsets was UCLA pulling out a weak win over Texas A&M in the final seconds and the suspect non-call shown above. That really couldn't be a more blatant missed call (but makes a little more sense when you realize that the crew was led by Big East veteran Tim Higgins) and it falls in line with the other gifts UCLA has been handed this year. And while the stakes were pretty high before, from here on out a non-call or bullshit foul (see Stanford game below) will not go unnoticed. If UCLA continues to receive this type of disparate treatment, someone's going to start putting the pieces together. I know UCLA has a big following and all, but this is starting to get ridiculous.
