Michigan and Michigan State fans don't often agree on anything. During an intense rivalry game that will likely determine these teams' fates, these two fanbases aren't torn, they're connected.

The game has been tough to watch as a Spartan fan, but Michigan fans are not happy with the game either despite a double digit lead. Bo Boroski has taken the entertainment value away from college basketball. His officiating is consistently the worst in professional sports and it's not even close.

Neither team has been able to get into a rhythm, but more importantly, the calls made in this game are taking away from the game of basketball. Any contact whatsoever is called a foul, creating an environment where players are afraid to get close to the basket - the place that they need to be in able to score the ball. 

We don't need perfect officiating, but we'd like to watch a game and complain about the poor performance of the players that we're a fan of. Watching a game that feels hopeless because of the way it is being officiating is not fun for anybody.

Bo Boroski should not be in his position. He is not qualified to do his job and has proven with consistency that it could be done better by anybody with a baseline knowledge of the game.

He has changed the outcome of more than a handful of games this year alone. He takes the power from college athletes and puts it in his own hands.

This can be exemplified by looking at Wisconsin basketball's 2-8 record with Bo Boroski as an official. Without him officiating, they're 14-3. Michigan State is now 1-5 with him as an official and 14-6 without him. These games haven't been close either, as the Spartans' last four losses with Bo Boroski controlling the game have resulted in double digit deficits.

Two of these were 30-point losses, both among the worst in the Izzo era. These are not coincidences; his officiating dooms certain teams from the start.

Bo is taking power away from the student athletes that work hard every day for success. He's not just ruining it for the athletes though - it's bad for the conference. Bo's officiating is causing the Big Ten teams that got this conference into the spotlight to struggle. 

We do not ask much, only that justice is done. We want Big Ten basketball back.
