    Sick. Just sick.

    Went back and watched the bogus charge call. Watched it three times. Man what might have been had the call gone our way. For freaking once, why couldn't we catch a break? Would've likely been up 4. It was a close call, but I think we got jobbed there. I mean, why let everyone's little darling Ohio State not advance, right? So instead of a Sweet 16 appearance in a very winnable bracket, we're going home. Just makes me sick.

    That call goes against ISU 100% of the time in that situation. Yes, name on front of jersey makes a difference.

    So a team that plays much more aggressive defense than Iowa State has the same number of fouls and that justifies an even game?

    Marta even said in his press conference that the switch threw them off. Would give Craft that shot every time over the worst shot Thomas could take.

    It.s called switching on defense, and every coach does it for end of the game situations.

    So your saying if the officials make the correct call and they Cyclones are up 3 with a FT opportunity to go up 4 under a minute and things wouldn't have been different? Sorry, but the entire ending of that movie is rewritten at that point. OSU suddenly has to make things happen instead of sitting on it. The entire course of history changes at that point.

    Re: Sick. Just sick.

    Niang shouldn't have been on the floor in the first place. Defensively he's our weak link.

    Regardless, the foul didn't lose us the game. We had a chance to secure the board and take the last shot. We didn't do that. They had a big time player make a big time play. We didn't have a big time player secure the rebound.

    The refs were fine. There were calls that could have went both ways. We had a good season, no reason dwelling on it

    Re: Sick. Just sick.

    At least something was called. After the Kansas ordeal, I'm not really worked up about this one. He blew his whistle, did his best. Anyone who says it wasn't a tough call needs to take off the cyclone goggles for a second.

    Re: Sick. Just sick.

    They kept talking about Craft's two missed one and one's.... However, they didn't mention that Ejim did the same. ISU got jobbed on that call and at least two more in the final seconds against KU. Couple that with clutch 3s that seem to always fall for the other team in the final 3 seconds and you sum up our season.

    This. Had Babb been able to go in the second half, he would likely been on Craft for that shot.....
