You can count Nebraska Cornhuskers head football coach Bo Pelini as someone who has a case of March Madness as he has grown frustrated with the officials in Nebraska’s first round game vs. the Baylor Bears and voiced his displeasure with the referees on Twitter.
Can I get fined if I comment about basketball officiating?

See, it’s not just us fans who have questioned the officiating in this game. Nebraska trails Baylor 29-16 at halftime with Baylor building their lead courtesy of 20 free throw attempts after Nebraska was whistled for 13 personal fouls.
Baylor successfully converted 14 of their shots form the charity stripe compared to only four by the Cornhuskers on nine attempts after Baylor was called for 10 fouls.
Tim Miles’ Nebraska squad was a popular pick to pull off the first round upset after going 19-12 this season, but if the foul calls don’t start to even out in the second half, Nebraska’s NCAA Tournament will come to a screeching halt very soon.
