    New angle: have we ever been the beneficiary of a game-deciding call in a big game?

    The charge call today didn't directly cost us the game but there's no question it was hugely impactful. The bad call in the KU game did directly cost us the game. We all remember the "blarge" call against Michigan State, and the botched FG call against Alabama in the Independence Bowl.

    Have we ever been the beneficiary of such an important call, in a game that actually meant something? Football or basketball?

    The only instance I can recall is in the 2006 Missouri football game, the holding call that kept Missouri out of the end zone and preserved the win in McCarney's final game. But really, aside from it being McCarney's last game it's not like there were any stakes involved there...we were already out of the postseason.

    Would the FG against Oklahoma State in 2011 count?

    It wasn't a huge game, but JVB's half court shot after the buzzer in the Creighton game.

    Royce probably traveled in the K-State game last year.

    The FG against Oklahoma State was the first thing to come to my mind. That appeared to be a 50/50 call.

    The difference with that Mizzou game was that hold was the CORRECT call (that the Big 12 ultimately apologized to Mizzou for - imagine that - apologizing because the refs made the CORRECT call).

    you forgot about the TD reversal on Seneca's run vs. FSU when it was clearly a TD.

    and to answer your question, no. We always are the ones to get boned by these calls.

    When we stepping on KU's throat in 2000-2001, they thought we were getting all the calls.

    Goes with the territory.

    The difference is a KU player could punch and opponent in the face and their fans would still think all the calls are going against them.

    Whether it's correct or not - and I'm one that thinks the idea that refs should just swallow their whistles at the end of games is garbage; if it's a penalty it's a penalty - it's the kind of thing that never gets called that late in a game. I know if it happened to us I'd probably be upset.

    Against Cincinatti in 1997, the traveling call when Pratt was on the guys leg?

    Last call I remember is Kelvin Cato taking a charge from a KU gaurd toward the end of the ISU Big 8 tournament win. At the time I thought, " **** **** ISU just got a call. We have a chance to win!".

    No, we always gut ****ed by officiating because they do not want to see Iowa State have a lot of success because we are not a money school.

    Yep, that's a good one. Though they did botch a call on Cato shortly before...so you could argue that just evened it out.

    This is probably not a popular sentiment, but I thought before the charge call we were probably getting the better end of the calls.

    Re: New angle: have we ever been the beneficiary of a game-deciding call in a big gam

    I was surprised there weren't more questionable calls throughout the game in OSU's favor. Really was happy with the officiating overall. Even the charge on Clyburn looked like a 50-50 to me in live action. I can't fault the ref for making the call he did. He doesn't have the benefit of slow motion replay.

    0 late game calls in recent ISU basketball history that have helped us win.

    The FG was huge against #2 OSU
