Motorbike, Poyman,Peeves,
I will agree that the officiating was terrible but it was terrible both ways and inconsistent all night long. But BYU lost the game not because of them. They just cannot shoot free throws, plain and simple. If they shoot 75% from the line they win the game. Unless they fix this they will be lucky to make the NIT.

To imply that BYU lost the game due to PAC 12 officials is weak sauce. I watched the entire game. It was called very evenly. BYU missed a ton of free throws, that's what cost them the game. As far as fouls go: Personal Fouls: Oregon 22, BYU 23. Free Throws attempted Oregon 31, BYU 36. The numbers speak for them self. To get those kind of numbers on the road is pretty unbiased. I don't know what more a road team could expect?

Have a Merry Christmas!
