    I'm not super upset

    after this game. First, my demented mind can draw a pretty straight line from that GOD AWFUL TERRIBLE ****** NO GOOD CALL of PI to the loss. No that didn't cause us to lose but it was so terrible.

    I thought we played hard and lets remember that A&M doesn't suck.

    Re: I'm not super upset

    I had 3 games written down as games we couldn't win this year. aTm, OkSt, and OU.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I agree. We lost this one, but we had fewer penalty yards and more sacks than A&M, only turned the ball over once, made a 43 yard field goal, and may have found a new QB.

    I hate a loss, but this one didn't sting like the blowouts because we were in it until the end.

    That said, the truly boneheaded penalties have GOT to stop.

    That PI call sucked, but the defense deciding to take the rest of the half off after that sucked worse.

    I agree. We made a lot of strides today against a darn good team. Still stuff to fix, heck ya but I feel a lot better about this game than the last 3.

    I thought that was interference, but there were a few times the announcer finished the call in ISU's favor before the ref could announce the penalty and it went against us. We got jobbed a few times.

    Maybe but it is kind of hard when you realize that you will be penalized for looking at an offensive player. Hell, we weren't even looking at the guy.

    I'll give the defense a bit of a break on that because it was probably the worst call I've seen.

    Okay just a question but how the hell is that pi when the ball is under thrown and hits the ground 10 feet from the receiver.

    Re: I'm not super upset

    I feel the same way as the OP. And the only really bad call I remember was the PI call on the play that we also had an offsides. That changed it from 3rd and 10 to a new set of downs and they ended up scoring. Huge swing.

    Re: I'm not super upset

    I'm far more upset about how we looked against UT, Baylor and Mizzou.

    Today was at least an improvement over those games.

    Re: I'm not super upset

    there was a call before half where the A and M player was down in bounds and the clock should have kept running. ruled him out of bounds and the clock stopped aiding A and M on the drive. Rhoads went crazy on that one.

    I don't think Rhoads had stopped going crazy from the PI call.

    When a leader loses their composure, a leader needs to look at himself and see that he's letting his people down. That's a leadership failure.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Exactly.

    Wasn't it still 13-7 at that point? Or was it still 7-6. Bad call, kept the drive alive, but had ISU gotten out of the half down only 6 or maybe even 9, there was a decent shot.

    Even before that, squandered opportunities in the A&M's territory twice, when A&M wasn't moving the ball well.

    The dam may have broken in the second half anyway, but that games was so winnable it's not even funny.

    I think Coach Rhoads would probably agree with you, but I think there's something to be said for losing it every once in a while. I'm sure the players look at it as him standing up for them.
