    So 7 people made some sort of threat? You'll see worse over little league baseball games.

    Higgins is a criminal. I couldn't care less about him or his family. He should have thought about them before he became a criminal.

    Seven?? Seven whole people? Oh the HORROR!! What has humanity eroded into? More people than that fixed a World Series. Trying to make a national story out of that. SMDH. Freaking ridiculous. Hey Higgins, play stupid games and win stupid prizes.

    That's a productive use of months of law enforcement time. Don't agree with threatening him, but not too concerned about it either. He's an incompetent and a biased phony.

    If college basketball were underwear, Higgins would be that big ol' skid mark running from the waistband to the crotch.

    ESPN was more in depth on that reporting than they've been on UNCs years of corruption.

    I bet they wasted 70,000 dollars or more on this bogus crap.

    Meanwhile the heroin and meth epidemics are running wild.

    BS, BS ad nauseum. A bent ref has his feelings hurt. Call me when someone blows out his knee. That would be slightly newsworthy for a moment or two.

    Hopefully the 7 are prosecuted. Senseless harassment like that is uncalled for. He may be a terrible ref, but he didn't deserve what he got. Hope y'all understand that. Maybe you think it's no big deal. But have you ever been on the receiving end?

    I hope the 7 get what is coming to them. Threatening a man's life over a BB game, are you serious? Then some poster in this thread says Higgins is a criminal..missing some calls or making bad calls in BB is not a criminal act..what a freakin' idiot..It is a BB game people, get over it..Damn..some of you are beyond stupid..

    If he was just a terrible ref I would agree. He's a crooked ref. There's a difference.

    There are very few things that make threatening someone's life okay. This was not one of them. He can be awful and these people can be awful at the same time. I hope they're punished and stay way the hell away from Kentucky basketball and I hope Higgins does the same.

    Watch the video of Fox and Bam after that sham of a loss to UNC.

    Higgins uses his position to influence outcomes and that negatively affects innocent young men.

    I hate how some "fans" say it's just a game.

    Look at all the hours, days, and years of hard work these coaches and players put in, and then have some lowlife POS take it away from them to reward a fraud ass team like UNC.

    Higgins is a thief, pure and damn simple.

    Yeah, and I wasn't criminal so I blew it off. If I had been one, like Higgins, I might have been very concerned.

    Tell us about your devastating experience. Hell, just make one up.

    Lol @the AP for mentioning Cal's criticism of the officiating after the game. Completely irrelevant to the gist of the article.

    You're right. I should have said if convicted. Although in a situation like this it would seem odd to bring charges without proof.

    Good to know all this effort was taken over this while unsolved murders and rapes are out there.

    I don't think there have been charges. Looks like the local authorities punted.

    May still be charges, but for now the matter has been referred elsewhere.

    Couldn't agree more. Just people are accused doesn't mean they are guilty. Innocent until proven guilty. Higgins needs to be convicted and banned from college basketball

    If you are bent to threaten an cbb official with their lives, you deserve to be recognized.

    Leave your politics in the politics thread. Both parties do the same, both are hypocrites. I bet you didnt whine about the cost of the Benghazi or Lewinsky investigations.

    recognized
    and you probably wouldn't threaten to bring physical harm to them either. You may wish it, but you wouldn't do it or tell others that you would or ask them to do it for you.

    i thought the fbi was involved?

    instead, a patrol car takes an extra loop around his neighborhood.

    I've never seen such a biased official in my life.I wouldn't threaten him but at the same time when an official lets a personal dislike of a coach determine the outcome of a game he should know what to expect.
