    Looks even worse from this angle. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good

    I don’t think that was the hold call, was it? If so, wow.

    Why on the planet earth would Parker scream on the sideline about the PI flag there? That was really, really obvious. Like really obvious.

    If there was a thread that ever personified cyclone fans, this would be it.

    Why does a Bill Self always get a “T”? Coaches work the officials.

    Maybe he was flagged for trying to hold him from falling on his ass after getting blown up?

    Because screaming at referees has a cumulative effect and works. Case in point, exhibit A: The holding call on the same play. There is no "High Road". I bet Brian Ferentz and a chorus of dozens were yelling "Hold!!!!" every play since opening kick off. Hell, they do that in high school games.
    Man, after seeing this, it is REALLY hard not to call that referee a douche bag for calling that call then in that situation.....he saw something he wished, he wanted, he devined that he wanted to see.

    A total officiating failure. I haven't seen it yet myself but I'm told that our guys were set for quite awhile on the play where they were called for not being set for a full second. I'd also be curious to see the hands to the face call.

    I'm the last person to claim an officiating conspiracy - I'm more than satisfied chalking it up to basic incompetence - but you start to wonder. Iowa got call after call when they needed one.

    We basically got flagged because Epenesa got dominated. Dude is way overrated and we now see why he was not an every down DE last year.

    It doesn't look like it was.

    Breaking news for you though, refs miss calls.

    That was Amani Jones, not Epenesa, that drew the holding call.

    Another moral victory for the Clones though.

    Wouldn't be ranked without that holding call most likely. ISU runs the clock down and kicks the game winning field goal

    I want to know when the flag was thrown. If they waited at all the goes from terrible call to KSU level conspiracy. Why cant we EVER get some home cooking from the refs. We have to get more bad calls at Home than any team in the Country.
