I do think our hedges have been called a little looser by the refs recently

I've noticed 2 or 3 hedges that were late and were typical blocking calls earlier in the season that have been let go in our last few games. But refs are letting a lot of other contact go too (*cough* Syracuse game *cough*). Just that time of year where we start leaning more towards "let them play". If only the refs were consistent about it.

As to your actual question about whether there's any truth to their claims. No they're just being irrational and blinded by hate. They see us slide our feet well to prevent their guy from wildly driving in for a layup and immediately cry foul. They see Jack Salt go up completely vertical on a guy's wild layup attempt and cry foul. There's a lot of contact in plays like those, but as long as the defense establishes position and doesn't initiate any contact, it's legal. Simply put, they don't know the rules.

But it's nice to be good enough to have passionate haters from other fanbases.
