    I feel bad for the team

    ISU isn't good enough to overcome bad officiating against a decent team. Both of the penalties on TB and BB on the touchdowns that were called back were weak calls at best. The replay official should be canned if he can't pull the trigger on a review of AF's touchdown catch. What is the purpose of a replay official if they don't see that play as worthy of review?

    I was proud of how the defense stepped up in the second half. I would have liked to see how things would have played out if ISU didn't get jobbed by the officials.

    Re: I feel bad for the team

    Makes you wonder, given the $$ invloved in college football and the fact that the Big 12 needs another team besides Texas to step up...did the officals control this game to insure a Nebraska win...

    same here, I thought that the defense played a lot better in the second half. We missed too many chances on offense though, and the touchdown before the half hurt

    I thought I saw the Refs get on the Nebraska bus after the game.

    Bad call on Austins touchdown, but we still had the opportunity to make the plays. Reality is like we have seen so often this year, we didn't. End of story.

    I think we did have many opportunities. But those calls really killed the momentum for Iowa State. The defense just forced a turnover, I think it would change the complexion of the game.

    Re: I feel bad for the team

    I remember reading an article a while back about a college official that was serving time related to gambling and officiating. I don't recall the details of the story, but I do recall that he claimed that this is a big problem in college athletics. When you watch a game like tonight it does give one pause about the credibility of officiating.

    Re: I feel bad for the team

    With out a doubt the defense really stepped it up in the second half. Seemed like Banks and Bowen were flying everywhere and the new Safety was putting some hits on people.

    Also, anyone think the big 12 will do anything regarding the reply booth persons??

    I have to disagree with this to a degree because we did make a lot of big plays. The problem seemed to be less about making big plays and more about a flag showing up every time we made a big play, or in the case of AF, the officials just made a bad call, and the safety net of replay mysteriously failed.

    they should get rid of them and find people that are more competent.

    Re: I feel bad for the team

    Lots of curious calls in football games today. Aside from numerous ones against the Clones, the one that stuck out was Michigan's first score against MSU--NOT a touchdown but wasn't reviewed because the replay booth said they didn't have enough time to stop play. ESPN put a timer on it--34 seconds from TD to PAT. Hey, sadly, it IS all about the money for the big conferences.

    Chris have you noticed that yours and my rep levels dropped from 10 to -12. Maybe if were lucky we can get to negative 100 by the end of the night.

    Which of your posts are people taking offense to? You two haven't posted anything that bad that I can tell...
