    Has this been discussed here at all?
    I have no stats to back this up but it seems like we get a ton of charge calls against us and hardly ever have any called against our opponents. Why the discrepancy? I really don't think it is officiating.

    Yeah, don't remember it. I mean, I didn't even realize they called charges anymore.

    We really haven't been in position to take the charges, and there are only a few that I can remember that should have been and weren't. I think Royce just gets them because he is so big and aggressive that the refs believe a lot of the flops are real.

    nothing better than seeing a 6'11", 280lb "man" flop down low. thats the only way to stop him, really.

    Ha..the one last night called on Booker I think was completely ridiculous. He had passed the ball and almost come to a complete stop and that ogre leaned into him and then flopped.

    I honestly feel that opponents get away with charging into Royce as well because he is so much bigger than them. A good example would be last night with maybe 5 mins left in the game J'Covan Brown rammed into Royce, Royce got knocked a step back, Brown rammed Royce again and took a shot. Royce was called for a foul. Brown definitely lowered his shoulder both times. I'm no ref, but from what I understand that meets all the technical categories of a charge.

    Forgot about that one. Almost as bad as Acey flopping on Scottie last game.

    Should have been a no call. RW did not jump and was straight up, JB was leaning/jumping forward. Clean play by RW.

    I really felt, at times, like i was watching a european soccer match. I would have thought our players were ***** smacking texas by the way they were flailing their arms all night. They must have watched some Reggie Miller game film before the game.

    My favorites are the one where Scotty "launches" a 6'11" 280lb "man".
    I guess he's just too much thug for the big men.

    IMO, this team just doesn't have a lot of quickness compared to some of the teams in the Big 12. It's a team with a lot of skilled shooters and big men who rely more on positioning and strength than athleticism. Not a lot of guys who are real fast off the dribble to go around guys or super quick to rotate and draw a charge.

    I think they should remove the charge call from basketball. :jimlad:

    It has. Turns out a few weeks before the start of every season all the MBB officials get together for a retreat to discuss and workshop all the different ways to screw over ISU basketball. Charging was at the top of this year's agenda. Good eye.

    A few weeks before the season starts, Gonzo and fellow Hocks get together. After they circle-jerk under the poster of Fran, they workshop all the different ways to troll ISU websites.

    If I were Royce I would be thinking "Do I want to come back for one more year of basketball in a league where every single player flops whenever I touch the ball in the lane?"

    Seems like charges are up all over....You might get recruited if you can flop well, can lead to quite a few turnovers for the other team. I don't know if it was a point of emphasis or what, but a lot of charges are getting called when the defensive player is even falling before he is touched...pretty sad.

    The reason we don't take any charges is because our help defense is bad. If there's one thing I think we need to work on for the tournament, it's help defense.

    I can't read about charges without thinking of this video:
