    Worst hosing by referees in ISU history?

    Wondering what the biggest screwjob we've gotten from refs has ever been. There have been a lot in basketball, but personally I think the #1 hosing was Seneca Wallace's touchdown against Florida State. Keeping in mind not just how bad the call was but also what it cost us, what does everyone think?


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Only other thing that comes to mind is the Kansas basketball debauchery.

    I think the kick to the nuts pic should be included with each post in this thread

    Re: Worst hosing by referees in ISU history?

    Once, and only once - IMO - have the Clones been truly hosed. The regional final versus Michigan State for a Final Four berth. I could argue a couple of other times - but I'm biased. The MSU game, every major publication in the US said the same thing - except the Detroit Free Press. It was beyond demoralizing, it was humilating.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    Ya gotta have the horses, man - Johnny Orr.

    Everything on here could be argued. But the Michigan State game clearly stands out in my mind.

    Re: Worst hosing by referees in ISU history?

    Obviously the MSU game is the answer although I would like to add the 3 pt basket by Kansas in between our FT's a few years ago and the 4 time outs Nebraska was able to call in the 1st half of a home game without penalty. Neither of these had as much of a season outcome as the MSU game but were important to that game itself.

    Re: Worst hosing by referees in ISU history?

    I realize that officials are a very easy target but it'd be much easier to blame our players for each of the times you guys are talking about. If we would have showed up in the first half of the Florida State game for instance refs would have never come into play. I have no idea why its ok to be complete dicks to officials but nowhere else is it acceptable to treat people that way. I spent the last week reffing basketball camp and it is ridiculous that coaches can continually ridicule officials for calls while officials cannot judge coaches. Hardest job there is.

    I still can't find a video for that one. I read about it the very next day, but I've never been able to see the carnage.


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