      In 2001, the Kalamazoo College men’s basketball team was at the center of a lengthy dispute regarding the outcome of a January 20 game with league rival Olivet College. With Olivet leading 70-69, Kalamazoo College center Kevin Baird made a shot at the buzzer that was initially waved off by referees. The referees then reviewed videotape of the game and determined that Baird had, in fact, released his shot before the buzzer and awarded Kalamazoo College a 71-70 victory. After the game, Olivet filed a protest with the conference commissioner, claiming that officials had misapplied the way in which videotape may be used. On January 23, the conference upheld the protest and awarded Olivet the victory. Kalamazoo then filed a protest with the NCAA, claiming that Olivet’s protest was in violation of NCAA bylaws. On February 1, the NCAA upheld Kalamazoo’s counter-protest and again awarded the game to the Hornets. The dispute between Olivet and Kalamazoo received national attention and Baird’s shot was shown repeatedly on ESPN.

      I know none of the Alums that post on here (almost certain) were at Kalamazoo or Olivet during this time, but maybe someone remembers this? I thought it was pretty cool and interesting.

      That happened my freshman year. I don’t remember too much about it, but I’m pretty sure I read about it on espn.com at the time. It was pretty interesting.

      Man… that’s one of those things that you wish you had seen. Maybe ESPN has some video archived?

      Who cares?

      This is a swimming forum and this thread should be moved to the “who gives a shit page.”

      Did everyone know that when Worldcom became the biggest accounting and fraud scandal in American business history, a Calvin College graduate was CEO?

      Check with Rob Passage when you get back. He might have it.
