    So is it bad

    to erupt in a fit of rage and fling your ottoman across the room in front of your 7 and 9 yr old boys....because the officiating was TERRIBLE.....only to later point out to them that it must have been just the good luck needed to see a Cyclone signature win on the season????

    We all three erupted at the conlusion...then ran to Papa Murphy's to pick up a large pepperoni to celebrate

    It has been several years since I have broken furniture, but my wife doesn't allow the children in the same room during games due to my famous potty mouth.

    I never complain about officiating. It's all a wash, really. Everybody complains that the refs are biased against them. If you go to the K-State message boards, I am sure there are a ton of messages there about how someone paid the refs to throw this game our way.

    Re: So is it bad

    Remember the 2001 Nebraska game when Rancik made the game winning shot with less than a second left? After Tinsley had that shot blocked out of bounds my dad grabbed the remote and chucked it at the TV. It broke almost immediately. After Rancik won it, he quietly got up and headed to the store to buy a new one. The rest of us were just sitting there laughing.

    Actually it's funny, just read a post that said the refs tried helping them, and we tried helping them by turning it over, but they didn't take advantage.

    Remember like it was yesterday. I was working an internship in Columbus, NE for 8 months, and a friend and I went to that game in Lincoln. After the fuskers thought they won and stormed the court, I was not looking forward to the long walk back to my car. But after we ended up winning, the walk out in my ISU hat was great! Of course, that internship is also the reason I was at a hotel bar in Kearny when we lost to "the team that shall not be named."

    My 10 month old son may have learned some new words today. I'm just glad my 4 year old was at grandma's house.
