Oh, I agree. I never said it was right. I just think that is how they operate. And if it is, teams need to act accordingly to do what it takes to finish the game at the very end. If I'm right, it would be a big advantage for teams that are aware of this.

... it's a makeup no call for the time that Duke f-baller saluted the ole' Virginny crowd and got a personal foul that allowed the Cavs to continue their game winning drive.

Ask State fans after Marshall charged at the end of the game with UNC last year and the Ref ate his whistle. You're right though a foul is a foul no matter when it happens.

Truth is never a conundrum.

At the same time.. Howell got slammed like a linebacker by the Clemson dude, and that could have been called as well.. and usually is at any other time in a game.

I understand your point, but it's still a possession, and the team has a right to score points unhindered the same as the first possession in a game. At least by not being flagrantly hindered.
Who gives the game away can also be seen as the player doing the flagrant fouling.
Taking out the two players ON PURPOSE was a gross offense, and Cook is the one who, if called, "gave away" the game by committing the fouls. Not the refs.
In fact, the refs could also be said to be giving away the game to Duke by not calling the foul.
Also, the BC players could have easily been injured the way Cook ran in shoving and undercutting.
If refs let that kind of intentional fouling continue to occur "just because" there's only a few seconds in a game, eventually a player's going to pay the price with a potentially serious injury.

Had #25 held his ground versus running like a Tallahassee Tar Heel, we wouldn't be having this debate.
All kiddin' aside, I saw a push in the back in the final secs., followed by a Duke Blue Backbreaker. All that matters is the score.

Subjects getting changed is very normal here. You'll get used to it. :)

So this thread is about NC State's last play against Clemson? I thought it was about The Duke - BC game. Hmmm. Alright, I'll go with it.
Okay, based on my previous comment about Cook's shove plus undercut of the BC players, I'm not surprised the refs swallowed their whistles at the end of the NCState - Clemson game. A little shuffle by the shooter is not uncommon and not often whistled by the refs nowadays. Clemson had enough opportunities to ice the game but failed to seal NC State's fate. The better team actually won the game, just like in the BC game.
