Michigan’s men’s basketball program is a little more than 10 minutes away from an Elite Eight berth, as the Wolverines are leading Florida State in the Sweet 16 on Sunday evening.
However, it’s been a very ugly contest in Indianapolis.
Michigan, the No. 1 seed in the East Region, is leading No. 4 seed Florida State, 50-41, with a little more than 11 minutes remaining in the second half.
The game has been an ugly one, with some inconsistent-at-best officiating highlighting the contest between the two Final Four contenders.
“Florida State has 17 fouls…Michigan has 7. Refs not giving FSU a chance,” one fan tweeted.

“Trying my best not to blame the refs but goodness they’ve been consistently awful today. And FSU seems to be on the wrong end of every bad whistle. Anyone else notice this?” Jason McIntyre tweeted.

Most fans complaining about the officiating seem to think that Florida State is getting a worse whistle from the officials.

FSU: We would like to play normal, physical basketball this evening.
Refs: If you so much as LOOK at a Michigan player, so help me god I will end your night.
