    Re: Blum: Non decision decides Cyclones fate

    As much as i love your writing Blum, i think this gives too much credit to the officials of this game by downplaying it to 'just one bad non-call'.

    The call right after it that sent KU to the line was even worse after not calling the charge.

    And how about Withey's 5th (and 6th, 7th, 8th, etc) fouls, including the one that has been pretty extensively documented on here?

    Re: Blum: Non decision decides Cyclones fate

    So do you think there was a foul on Georges there?

    This one is going to sting for a long time. I am going to rehash it for the long time. And if we don't make the NCAA, I am going to be posting about this all off season.

    I haven't re-watched the game yet, but the loose ball foul on Babb angered me as much as any of them. That's a call you should never see at home. Ever.

    I did see the non-charge call though. Just terrible. Don't have much more to add.

    Even though I hate the charging call, that was questionable, at best. But the 5th foul in Withey that wasn't called ,to me, was the worst. Unreal. Even as a hawk, that would have been a tough pil to swallow. For any basketball fan.

    So you are saying the home team deserves calls? Isn't that counter to the "Kansas gets all the calls" argument? Which is it, ISU deserves home town calls or Kansas gets all the calls?

    I agree with you. But I guess an argument could be made for the foul on Niang...a poor argument, but I can see how that maybe could be a foul. The non charge call was so absurd that I concentrated on that. The others don't even come close.

    The loose ball foul on Babb.
    Foul on Niang.
    not 5th Foul on Withey
    Withey knocking a player to the ground on a screen after his 4th

    Those were worse. Those show the bias toward Kansas.

    The make up call on the goal tend
    The end of the first half lack of calls.

    There is nothing contradictory, and you continue to have huge comprehension issues. Although KU would not be KU without them (see NCAA tournament upsets), there is no need for home town calls, just the correct call.

    I can only imagine how sad your life must be to result in continually coming on a message board to post rebuttals to contentions that only exist in your insecure, jealous little mind.
