    No excuses from the Texas fans after the article. More or less said they just got beat. Got to like that.

    That is a nice article. No whining about the refs like some other team's fans have been known to do.....

    Now that you bring up the refs it was a pretty well officiated game.

    It was a good, honest article. I wouldn't say it was well written. Actually pretty poor.

    "Actually pretty poor"? Do you mean that the writer of the article is poor, you are poor, or the article is poorly written? Complete sentences are always helpful in conveying what you mean to say, particularly when criticizing another person's writing. :v_SPIN:

    This is a perfect analysis of our defense:

    Actually, I concluded at the end of the game that overall, that was the worst officiated game I've seen yet this year. They made a ton of very poor calls, and no-calls. The reason we didn't notice is probably the calls favored neither team. It was a balanced screwing, which led to no advantage.

    "We didn't notice the officiating" is probably the highest compliment a ref can receive.

    You have 13 more offensive rebounds, make six more free throws..........and lose by 9. One would have to be a tavernhawk to generate an excuse. And Longhorn fans are not that.

    This was driving me crazy last night. All the side by side video of Parker and Taylor.

    It obviously was exposed vs. Staten and WV. That team can penetrate and shoot the rock. Will be interesting to see how we adjust next time around. Dibo was lights out, but you have to help on Staten. Our defense will need to rise up. But first, TCU. No nights off.

    Still wondering how DeAndre can bounce off a guy's shoulder driving to lane with no foul. Contact so obvious it threw the Texas guy out of the lane, but no call. Several other minor misses, but overall, the refs were not part of the outcome.

    If Kane got the calls that most guys that drive in this conference, he would lead the conference in FTs.

    Agree with this. Honest, fair assessment of the game and was complimentary toward ISU but it was actually pretty poorly written.
