Re: Ohio State vs. Xavier - Wow!
ALL fouls to stop the clock are "intentional". The refs should not and don't call intentional fouls at the end of the game. Who wants a game to be decided by an intentional foul? And how many times have we seen players hug another player while "going for the ball". So long as the player has the ball, and the foul is not malicious, they won't make the call at the end of the game, and they usually don't make the call when the player doesn't have the ball.
If it were the other way around, and it happened to OSU, I would still feel that way. It is easy for me to say that now, but it is still true.
Thank goodness for baseball.
