    I am just curious

    What is more bizarre

    1. Failed review of the onside kick

    2. Kansas getting to shoot a 3 pointer in the middle of a 2 shot foul and the refs counting it.

    3. Double foul in the Elite 8.


    I am not talking about the worst because obviously the double foul was the worst. I am talking about how a ref can mess up so bad.

    I would have to say the onside kick where some guy actually saw the play and still could not get it right.

    The double foul they could not review.

    The 3 pointer in the middle of the 2 shot fould was horrible but at least they did not watch it a few times on T.V. See what happened and actually still get it wrong.

    Re: I am just curious

    I am going to go with the 3 pointer during the middle of free throws. Seriously that was just common sense.

    Clearly the 3 pointer, that will never be topped. The most amazing thing about that is that the freaking rule says they can't take the points off the board...incredible.

    You guys might be changing my mind. I mean really a 3 pointer in the middle of the 2 shot foul???

    Also The football game did not mean as much.

    Three pointer for sure. No doubt. How could a ref mess that one up?

    I don't remember ever watching this, but just hearing it has got to be the dumbest think I've heard. Is there video of this?

    Also I think this thread would be better served in ISU General.

    Kansas 3 pointer

    I was at the game. Morgan was going nuts on the sidelines. Even the Kansas fans around us were laughing. We ended up losing the game in OT. My only time to Phog Allen....

    Re: I am just curious

    Definitely the 3 pointer. The onside kick was odd all around. Watching it multiple times now, I still am not sure it touched anyone. I'm not saying it didn't, it's just one of those calls that really could have gone either way. I think the circumstances surrounding the final decision are what make it odd. The 3 pointer. That's was just plain wrong, no matter how many ways you look at it. It still baffles me that that play isn't shown across the country every time questionable calls come up in the media.

    Re: I am just curious

    I still want to know why the rule exists that they cannot take points off the board in basketball, that's the worst part of the whole deal.

    Although it doesn't relate to us, the Missouri vs. CU "5th down" was equally as absurd.

    3 pointer, and I don't know why we don't use this to our advantage until they change the rule. On any two shot miss, grab the first rebound, outlet, shoot and score. Points are on the board, can't take them off.

    Because when any team not named Kansas does that it'd be call a delay of game technical foul

    I've never seen the video after the inital broadcast, but here's the game recap. It's not quite accurate though...when it says "all the players rushed down the court" he really means all the KU players, since most of our team was waiting by the lane for the second free throw.

    ESPN - Iowa State vs. Kansas - Recap - February 21, 2004

    Reading that I forgot that was also the game where Langford's 3 to tie at the end of regulation wasn't reviewed when he had his foot on the line. Damn that game ****** me off!!

    Re: I am just curious

    You know what I find most bizarre? The fact that all of these things could happen to the same school! And all over the span of what, like 8 years? I don't believe in karma or any of that, but it really gets you wondering if there is some greater power that has it in for us or something.
