ISU was 25 of 28 in regulation at the line. That is pretty dang good. Yes, that one free throw at the end that was missed would have made a difference, but in the big scheme of things, FT shooting did not hurt ISU. In fact, their FT shooting was why they were winning the game.
I think there are more shady things that go on in college sports than we will ever know. I noticed quite a few of Kansas' offensive rebounds were a result of one of their games going way over the back and knocking out to another guy. I know ISU had more FTs but I thought there could have been many more calls on KU. I don't know if the officials were biased or not, but sometimes it seems there are pecking orders that adhered too.
The thing about the last no call. Okay so there is no call, as bad as it was, but then you call a foul on the guy laying on the floor with the KU on top of him? Really? If you were going to let them play the last few seconds of the game, then that was DEFINITELY a no call. I know sometimes officials try not to decide the game with a call in the final seconds, so at first I am thinking, that was the reason for the no call on the charge, but then to call the foul they did? Wow.
Nailed it. Ironically enough, the guy who tipped it back over to Johnson laying on Niang was Withey, who should have fouled out a minute before that if the refs were competent. Without Withey in the game, regardless of the block/charge no call, Lucious gets that rebound and the game is over.
When I started this thread, I thought that eveyone on VOTH would be like me and not
give a rip that isu got hosed. Well, you live and learn.
But, then again, Clowns will be Clowns. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
The Clown pinhead that used the racial epithet should have to go to every Clown game for 10 years, as punishment.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
I never want to see these kids who put it all out there get screwed by incompetency of the refs, no matter who the team is, and they really got screwed. Outside of being a huge Freddy fan, because as someone else said, he's a class act all around, I've always been a fan of ISU bball.
Part of that is state pride and part is because growing up, my uncle was friends with Johnny Orr and used to take me to the games and into the locker after. I'd give the players crap that I was a Hawk and they'd give me some good fun ribbing and put their jock straps on my head and mess with me. Kinda one of those things you think is really cool when you're a kid and I guess it just stuck and I've always liked them when not playing Iowa.
I'm guessing these days, a kid in the locker room with a bunch of adults and their dongs swinging around my head like pendulums wouldn't be allowed.
OK.........Well, I'm old school.
My two favorite teams are IOWA and
whoever is beating little brother this week.
Hey, live and let live.
Old school would be wanting all the schools in the state to do well in all sports except when they are playing you.
Do you realize that ISU winning helps Iowa's RPI?
Just so you don't miss any sleep, I down voted two of your posts. A gross injustice committed against any team should be abhorrent, regardless of your like or dislike for the team. IMHO your posts are too often infested with a sense of supreme knowledge and a lack of respect for anyone who does not endorse your opinion. Just my 2 cents.
Just so you know, I upvoted this
