    Two reasons the Cyclones lost to KU - the refs and allowing over 100 points

    I remember Korie saying he should have defended better. Am I wrong or does anybody else think that we need to do a better job of locking down each player, and not just Babb's guy? It seems that we are a step slow on screens sometimes and then other times we lose our defender and they get a clean shot at the basket. Easy for me to say but 108 point is too much.

    We only gave up 88. Officials were responsible for other 20.

    Re: Two reasons the Cyclones lost to KU - the refs and allowing over 100 points

    If they'd have allowed 100 in regulation, you might have a point. Or if it were any other team than Kansas. It's not like they just randomly gave up a bunch of points to some hack team.

    Other than that, ISU's style is not lock down defense. you can't build a team for one thing, then all of a sudden expect another. Iowa State did all they needed to do to win that game on Monday. The refs took that away, nothing else. It was Kansas for goodness sake, it was going to be a close game.

    Umm....I'm pretty sure that without a bad no call and a bad call we held them below 90.

    Well said. It's staggering the leaps in logic people will take as a coping mechanism. The fan base is split into two camps.

    1. venting about a fixed game, people who can see the obvious and chose to live with hard truth
    2. making up all kinds of bs to rationalize that the game wasn't fixed and KU was somehow the better team in regulation despite scoring less points than ISU

    Re: Two reasons the Cyclones lost to KU - the refs and allowing over 100 points

    Yes, we could play better defense.
    Yes, we did enough to win.
    Yes, the refs blantantly screwed us out of the win.

    Is there really more to add to this argument by now?


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

    Re: Two reasons the Cyclones lost to KU - the refs and allowing over 100 points

    Johnson also hit some unbelievable shots. It wasn't like he was wide open, set, and toeing the 3pt line with 20 seconds on the shot clock on his makes. To put it more bluntly, he made a lot of bad shots that I would even have been ****** at McGee for taking.
