    Hmmm...Just guessing that they have a common opponent? :jimlad:

    Either we bring out the best in the other team or somebody has it out for us.

    I tried posting the most basic, factual and unbiased way to show we're getting the shaft, but I'm sure the usual suspects will defend us getting blatantly screwed.

    I still can't believe Woody's TD and the tuck rule play were overturned. WOW

    It would be even more interesting (and worse for us) if you did a study of the calls as the game was being decided.

    Yeah, it's ********. I'm a huge home for sure, but when even the announcers are on your side it starts to be a little obvious. It's almost like, with the replays taking so much time, that they made their decision before they saw it, they are just looking for that one hair of anything that they can use to say, "See, there it was, we made an OK call!"

    Off the top of my head I can say it would have been

    UConn 0-0

    Baylor 1-15

    In place of those two bolded games where they somehow played near flawless in penalties.

    Looking at the whole season, Baylor is surprisingly much less disciplined than even ISU is...except this one game out of 5.

    What about our other opponents? I realize that wouldn't make these two games any more acceptable, but does a similar trend exist with our other opponents?

    The hard part about criticizing the calls of an officiating team is that often the calls are technically correct, its the calls that aren't called against the other team that are often the bigger factor.

    What about UNI, Iowa, or Texas?

    I would contend that in the first part of a game - while we are still in it - calls typically go against Iowa State. After a game has been decided, calls will more often go against our opponent making the the total number of penalties fairly even.

    If that is not the case, it should easily be disproven by showing the penalty counts and yards lost (not just penalty yards) for each quarter of a game for both ISU and our opponents.

    I posted in this thread about the good sportsmanship of your team.

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/football/130314-good-luck-rest-way.html

    Then stumbled on this thread.
    Are you guys seriously blaming the loss on the refs? 600+ yards of offense given up. BU's 2nd and 3rd string were kneeling before putting up yet another score at the end of the game, and BU turned it over 2x in the first half yet still had the lead at the break.

    I do think you got jobbed on the on-side kick call, but seriously, if you're going to blame the loss on anything, how about blaming a defense with corners playing 10 yard cushions while 2 safeties stayed deep all night allowing BU to gash it up the middle with the run... all night. RG3 didn't even have to try and win through the air. The run was there all night.

    In my obviously biased opinion, Baylor is definitely the better team, but had the refs given you the on-side kick, you just lose by a little less. Even the "incomplete pass" call doesn't necessarily give you the win, IMO.

    Oh... almost forgot, your D jumped off-sides (legitimately) 6 times... 6! Some in very crucial scenarios.

    It's hard to compare numbers of penalties because a lot of times when it's lopsided, the officials will start calling numerous penalties on the other team, towards the end of the game, just to even out the stat sheet. And these penalties are usually called when the game is out of reach by one team so they have no affect on the outcome.

    In order to compare penalties, you need to take note what the penalty is, how many yards, where on the field it took place, what the down and distance is/was, what the score is, and how much time left in the game.

    No. Please improve your reading comprehension.

    We're looking to get as equal a shot at winning the game as our opponents do, and it clearly hasn't been happening so far this season.

    You will do yourself a BIG favor by looking at the HD replay of the Texas ISU game posted in the other thread. Calls get evened out when the frickin game is over . . .take a look at the other thread in this forum.

    By the way....did it happen across your mind that this was the defensive gameplan? To not let RG3 have the long pass plays to beat the hell out of us with? You have to pick your poison. Props to your coaching staff in not stubbornly trying to win it through the air anyway.
