    stop blaming officiating

    I admit the onside kick was bad but we gave up 391 yards 2 turnovers and 49 points. the refs are not picking on us our bad play has been consistent since UNI. we have had 370 yards in penalties,this team is not disciplined.

    we have seen the same calls over and over again making the same dumb mistakes since UNI. the officials are not out to get poor iowa state. the reason we are losing is turnovers and dumb plays. if you blame the officials you are ignorant and a sore loser.

    sorry

    Re: stop blaming officiating

    In general I agree... however...

    One AWFUL call changed possession of the ball when it was a 2 score game with plenty of time left.

    It wasn't even a judgement call. It was the wrong call.

    If you think the officials have no affect on the game you are ignorant.

    Re: stop blaming officiating

    I haven't really seen many people "blame" the officials, most just pointing out how bad it was and the trends that seem to be happening in terms of poor officiating. Officiating didn't cost us the game but it sucks when they become a negative part of the game.

    Re: stop blaming officiating

    I accept your stupid apology. look at the yankees- redsox collapse, or the cups bartman collapse- this team crumbles under injustice and we can point to that.

    Re: stop blaming officiating

    when you notice the officials, and even start to recognize faces and "letters" throughout the game, then there is something wrong.

    Re: stop blaming officiating

    why? are you affected everytime a ref is criticized? maybe email CPR and tell him to stop criticising the refs? just stop looking like an ignorant ****.

    Has anyone said we lost the game because of officiating?

    The refs are not out to get us, but the quality of umpiring in our games has been embarrassing. But you need to wake up, it is ignorant thinking that the calls have nothing to do with the game.

    Last week was pathetic. Our fans behaved like morons.

    Tonight there were 2 huge/horrible calls made.

    I agree the officiating was so good they failed to realize there is no tuck rule in college football.

    Doesn't matter how bad you are turnover margin, if you are putting yourself in a position to win the game.

    I'm not or will not blame anything of the loss to the refs. However, when you look at reffing across college football, it is ABSOLUTELY horrible.

    Look at the Toledo/Syracuse game...
