I was only 9 when the msu game was played, so the only thing I remember was eustachy getting ejected. That blarge call was a joke and it killed us having Shirley foul out. The fizer moving screen was pretty bad too, but there were still 4 min left after the fizer play. We fell apart and couldn't get a decent shot.
Prior to today, I have never gone back and watched the game - probably the worst day of my entire life (so far) - especially since I was watching it in IA City and an in-law of my brother's was watching with us and gloated over the MSU win.
I watched the game today until the "Blarge" call - I couldn't bear watching anymore. I forgot all of the blunders that occurred after the Izzo technical: the 3 second call on Shirley (no way was that 3 seconds); Shirley's fall in the lane - negating the "and one" free throw by Fizer (bone-headed play by Paul); the illegal pick on Fizer (absolutely HORRIBLE call); then the "blarge" - unbelievable call. Oh, what could have been.......
"Some of you [Hawk fans] might point out that Iowa won 15 straight against ISU. Guess what? That was 18 years ago. That means during the lifetime of every player on both rosters… Iowa State has a winning record over Iowa." - Ross Peterson (Hawkeye Nation Contributor)
