    Hmmm...Just guessing that they have a common opponent?

    Either we bring out the best in the other team or somebody has it out for us.

    I tried posting the most basic, factual and unbiased way to show we're getting the shaft, but I'm sure the usual suspects will defend us getting blatantly screwed.

    I still can't believe Woody's TD and the tuck rule play were overturned. WOW

    It would be even more interesting (and worse for us) if you did a study of the calls as the game was being decided.

    Yeah, it's ********. I'm a huge home for sure, but when even the announcers are on your side it starts to be a little obvious. It's almost like, with the replays taking so much time, that they made their decision before they saw it, they are just looking for that one hair of anything that they can use to say, "See, there it was, we made an OK call!"

    Off the top of my head I can say it would have been

    UConn 0-0

    Baylor 1-15

    In place of those two bolded games where they somehow played near flawless in penalties.

    Looking at the whole season, Baylor is surprisingly much less disciplined than even ISU is...except this one game out of 5.

    What about our other opponents? I realize that wouldn't make these two games any more acceptable, but does a similar trend exist with our other opponents?

    The hard part about criticizing the calls of an officiating team is that often the calls are technically correct, its the calls that aren't called against the other team that are often the bigger factor.

    I would contend that in the first part of a game - while we are still in it - calls typically go against Iowa State. After a game has been decided, calls will more often go against our opponent making the the total number of penalties fairly even.

    If that is not the case, it should easily be disproven by showing the penalty counts and yards lost (not just penalty yards) for each quarter of a game for both ISU and our opponents.
