I think it’s time for Penn State fans to grow a set. Bad calls happen to everybody, not just us. There’s no vast Tubby-wing conspiracy working against Penn State, crap happens. Perhaps every fan base is as whiny as ours, but since I don’t frequent their forums, I wouldn’t really know.
Andrew Jones gets a foul and it’s the ref’s fault, he’s on the take. nevermind the fact that Andrew has averaged about 2.5 fouls per game his entire career and he’s fouled out of 10 games out of the 125 that he has played.
Minny goest to the line after a slight touch from one of our guys and we bitch how our guys are getting mugged yet most forget about plays such as Jackson pulling off the biggest flop since Ishtar.
We bitch about the refs slowing down the flow of the game to check the clock towards the end of the Purdue game but expect the refs to call time and make sure that all of our players and coaches have their shoes tied and noses wiped and are really, really, no, REALLY ready for Talor’s foul shot.
We want the refs to swallow their whistles down the stretch unless it’s a foul in our favor.
We spout that no other schools suffer the calls that we do yet never consider that we watch damn near every PSU home game and very few opponents home games that don’t involve us.
Penn State never gets any home cooking while forgetting things like the 51-21 advantage we had at home vs MSU in 2008.
Selectors who put more weight in overall SOS rather than focusing solely on conf play are in ESPN’s pocket and are swayed by the soul of Tubby Smith.
Blame the recent PLCB activities on Spanier without checking to see if similar actions are taking place in other towns.
It’s like those who focus on the melting point of steel while ignoring the fact that steel can, and always does fail structurally before it melts.
We Won the game!
Why are people still focusing on the great conspiracy against Penn State? I think PSU hoops fans have embraced the tortured artist role for so long that we look for storm clouds on a sunny day. Then when we do find an anvil cloud, it has to be a targeted injustice, because after all, bad weather only happens to us.
I was happy with the win until I started reading the whining on the boards.
…and for those who don’t already have my unlisted phone number, it’s 867-5709. I look forward to erasing your messages.
