    We didn't lose because of the missed block/charge call

    You don't lose a game because of one play. We still were up by 1 pt at that point in the game. I would blame the loss more on the turnover with a minute left and the missed rebound with 29 seconds left.

    Did the refs miss the block on Craft. Yes.
    Was it a bad call. Yes
    Was it a close call. Yes
    Was it the reason we lost the game. NO!

    We lost because we allowed Ohio State to shoot 51% from the floor.

    Re: We didn't lose because of the missed block/charge call

    I hate to bring this up, but I have all season, so why stop now.

    Why the hell do we let this team play through the last minutes of the game. No reason to not call a timeout on that last possession ISU had. ISU had 2 timeouts, 1 minute left, tie game.

    CALL A TIMEOUT FRED! Fred is one of the best coaches I have seen at drawing up plays, and for some reason this season he didn't want to take advantage of that.

    I completely disagree... put ISU up by 4 and you increase the chances of winning 100 fold.

    Sure as hell did not help. Loss of a bucket and possible FT at that point in the game. HUGE. Plus the momentum change. We get the call and it changes the game........completely.

    We didn't lose it because of the call, however, it did change the game quite a bit.

    Re: We didn't lose because of the missed block/charge call

    I like our chances up 4 with a minute to play instead of up 1 giving OSU the ball. So while that one call didn't lose the game for us, it sure as you-know-what didn't help us.

    Right. Those points mattered.


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

    But they overcame all of that, and had the correct call been made at the end they would have had the lead.

    Ohio State scored the last 4 points of the game after the missed call.

    Fred's play draw ups at the end of halves/games for the most part have been terrible this season. He's ridiculously awesome for 38 minutes. The last minute of each half on the other hand....

    For example, the drawup for the last play of the game today? Hey! Let's throw Lucious the ball 75 feet away from the hoop and hope he can turn around and throw it far enough without getting blocked! That was absolutely awful.

    Re: We didn't lose because of the missed block/charge call

    I would have been ok with using a timeout before our last possession...we seems rushed and made a bad turnover.
