I found this fascinating quote today:
The referees allowed Kansas players to mug lea high for 40 minutes. In the first half Kansas tackled Lea high guards and the refs swallowed their whistles. They found them again when Lea high began to make a run on Kansas. With regularity they blew the whistle on lea high and closed their eyes when Kansas fouled until Lea high could not get close enough to guard Kansas players, because they didn't want to foul. It was a stunning win for the referees. They kept Obama's brackets intact and probably their own too, from the looks of it.Myoungatheart5, The hidden news, Mar 2010
