[quote=“Craftsy21, post:12, topic:886”]We definitely got a few calls in our favor too in some ways, but don’t it just seem like the timing of many of the bad calls against us is too perfect sometimes? Our favorable calls are never gamebreakers, they’re always just like - “oh, well that’s nice”. But the bad ones against us are always timed up perfectly during a nice comeback for us, or a comeback for the other team.
It’s surely mostly perception from a biased point of view - but I’ve been pretty pleased with officiating in all but about 3-4 games this year, and last night was one I thought was terrible.
Anybody remember the call in the first half where the two refs within 10 feet of the play couldn’t see who the ball went out on, so the official 60 feet away from the play comes running in to make the call? Or how about Edwards doing the EXACT same move Turner did all night and getting called for a charge on it.
It’s the typical stuff you expect in terms of star treatment I guess, but it seems like that type of thing shouldn’t happen in OUR building, but it probably happens there more than in the away games we play. I for one was extremely happy somebody on the bench had the balls to finally scream something at the officials and get T’d up - that play in particular saw an OSU star throw his arms right into our guys face on a fumbled ball play with no call against OSU. It was a hustle play created by our guys and we get robbed of the correct call for god knows what reason - it was clear as day, but apparently not good enough for a whistle.
Anyways - it surely didn’t cost us the game, and it rarely does that I’ve seen. But it sure doesn’t help you win many when you just know any 50/50 type play is going against you in crunch time. It’s not even a question anymore.[/quote]
This is ridiculous. There is not a conspiracy against the PSU hoops team
