    We did not deserve to win

    Screw-job by the refs or not, it would have never gotten to that point if we just bat-down the hail mary at the end of the 1st half.

    True. Can't let that happen. Ever. Cost us the game as it turns out.

    the three major fouls at the end of the game cost the game.

    I agree...we lost the game. It's on us...not the refs.

    Thanks for starting this thread, I was wondering what happened.

    Yeah, there are lots of "what ifs" in a game, but that Hail Mary really is a very big dagger...we can control that, not a refs whistle.

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    That and it's 2nd @ 1 inside the 5 and we can't get the 1st down and have to kick the FG to only go up 6. Then of course the numerous P.I. penalties.

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    No, that was too early in the game to cost us. The one that cost us was the replay official refusing to overturn the fumble. It was clear George got it and there was no early whistle. It is so typical, if it was reversed Texas gets the ball. Simple.

    That's what losers do. They lose.

    And we made up for that on the field to be up by 6 points when something out of our control (the ref's payoffs) prevented us from winning.

    Sorry, but this is asinine. The correct call on the fumble wins the game, regardless of anything that happened up to that point.

    Texas was smart and burnt us bad when Watson got hurt and had to leave the game. We waited to long before we made adjustment with Tribune.

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    All we had to do was score a td instead of the last fieldgoal and the refs are a moot point. We had the opportunity to put the game away and didn't. Everything after that changes if we just finish the job and get the sealing td.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    I don't think ISU could have made a play on that pass though.

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    This is true it was a poor effort. Put ourselves in a whole and made mistakes every time we battled back.

    Somewhat to be expected from a young team. Still really frustrating.
