    Are you the guy that sat behind me at the Baylor game and yelled that every trip down the court? If so, I hate you.

    I yelled it a bunch of times. Did they call it? No. And I eventually gave up.

    But that's my job as a fan. Cheer when the team plays well and yell at the refs. If it bothers you, watch the game at home.

    Really? That's your job as fan? Man, I guess I have a skewed outlook on what a fan should do.

    Holy **** it was you, were you there with what I assumed to be your daughter with the annoying voice pretending she knew anything about basketball? This is like one of those craigslist missed connections!

    Moving screens just aren't called that often. If they were, they could've called quite a few on us as well.

    Unfortunately true, I saw a real bad moving screen Booker tried to set in the first half.

    I'm trying to stop chiming in on ref complaints, but this comment changed my mind. That just isn't true. Watch RW and ME, and see how well they plant themselves to set a screen. They set a true screen and rarely move during contact from the defender.

    No. I was there with three other guys (from work) however one of them was pretty drunk and I mostly sat by myself or with one other fellow during the ISU game. We were about row 15, section 117.

    During the first half I yelled about 8 times for the refs to watch for TX moving screens. The last few efforts, I simply yelled "STOP. TEXAS. MOVING SCREEN." I tried to yell it during lulls (play stoppage when he bands were not playing) hoping to be heard. I was trying to keep it short and simple to save my fading voice. I simply wanted to take the chance that either 1) the refs would hear conciously or sub-conciously or 2) the TX players might hear and become concerned the refs might start looking.

    Didn't seem to work so I stopped. Sorry if that bothered anybody (I'm sure the TX A&M fans sitting 2 rows down were sick of it) but I'll say it again... That's what I feel I can contribute as a fan at a game. Cheer for ISU and yell at the refs. No profanity and never (well, almost never) negative toward the team. If I'm not at least willing to contribute in that way I should just stay home and watch on TV.

    After the game ended someone behind me yelled: Congratulations Fred. You just got out-coached by the second-worst Big-12 coach. That is the type of thing you will not hear me say about a coach or a player.

    We do it too. Everyone does it. Royce moves a lot to screen the defenders when we run the dribble handoff.
