Results-Oriented Officiating

After a somewhat hard foul by Travis Walton in today's MSU-UConn game, Jeff Adrien attempts to either punch Walton or throw him to the ground, but misses. A fracas ensues, and the announcers say that no additional fouls should be called because Adrien "took a swing, but he missed." Apparently the refs, after viewing the replay for a long time, agreed with this logic.

If any readers are on trial for attempted murder, I suggest you hire the Final Four refs to defend you on the basis that no real harm was done.

Attempted murder? Now honestly, what is that? Do they give a Nobel prize for attemped chemistry?
