Now KU has 5.6 for the win.
And of course they win.
Drive home safely.
Oh my god KU just won on a travel.
Fuuuuck.. lol, holy $#@!. KU looks pretty beatable despite the outcome of this one.
WTF??? That's a travel even in the NBA.
Quality AFH home cooking. I guess the Phog was too thick for them to see the extra step.
"Even in Europe", that was pretty funny.
Yeah... typical BS in that building, but KSU had their shot.
That officiating crew needs a three-game suspension.
Absolute chicken$#@! no call there. No way the refs didn't see that.
Wow. How do you miss that travel? It was obvious to everyone but the guys who mattered.
"I looked up and saw 5 seconds so I took three dribbles"
...and 3 extra steps.
Now WVU-TTU on ESPN News. TTU up 2 with 4 remaining.
WVU looks like they are going to go down.
Jinxed it WVU-TTU going to OT
Nice win, Techsters.
Down goes WVU.
Gives KU and Baylor a little breathing room. Who knows how the KU game would've went if they called that travel on the buzzer beater though.
EDIT: Sarcasm meter is broken.
Can't wait to see the KU contingent say anyone else gets that call, there's no bias towards KU in the officiating in this conference, etc. Just once I'd like to see a KU fan be like "you're god damn right we get those calls" and just own it, instead of accusing everyone else of whining.

I expected to learn something about ksu last night but I really didn't because ku played so poorly. Ku is clearly dogging it on defense to protect against foul trouble and that is going to lose them 2 games they shouldn't lose. This league will be a nail biter and I have to think with the WVU loss that Baylor has to be the favorite right now. Ku has to step up the defense in the first half or it's going to be the end of the streak.
I didn't get to watch enough of the tech game but I really think they are in the top half of the league. Good on them protecting home court. It'll be interesting to see how Baylor travels. This league might be a big bunch at the top and not a 3 tier league like we thought. Of course those bunches usually get worked out around game 10-11.

Even the phog. Thread titles like "ksu fans - thanks for traveling to the game" and "three steps of god".
Everyone is recognizing the travel and probably 60% are saying it should be called and we should have played overtime. 30% are saying we got away with it and who cares let's take the W. Then the last 10% is either saying svi was also fouled on a reach in or that we lost to WVU last year when states walked from the 3 point line on a buzzer beater so why should the call be made against us if it wasn't against him.
Like I said, it was blatantly obvious during the review that the call wasn't made. We were on the right side of it this time and with the way we're playing right now we will have plenty of opportunities to be on the wrong side of it during league play. Both teams had multiple opportunities to put this game away and neither did it so now the focus is on the late no call. I don't really have an opinion on it, it was a travel but I'm not going to call the league office and forfeit the game for us. If you don't want the officials to decide games then you have to take the officials out of the game. Both KU and KSU could have done that last night but both teams pissed it away down the stretch.

One thing I did learn is that something like 7 big men have had their season high in points against us. Baylor might push our $#@! in if they have any talent inside.
I remember the Staten game. I guess I don't really care because it appears more to be the exception and not the rule.
When WVU wins multiple games against ISU with critical, egregiously bad calls, I'll probably hate them for it too. There's an undeniable pattern of KU getting head-scratchingly bad calls go their way in critical moments of big conference games. WVU isn't there - yet. But their "can't call everything" strategy could lead to some of those type of results in time.
Even the ESPN guys on Sports Center said "that's what happens in Allen Field House" after the game. I was going to try and look up his school. He was pretty funny about it.
Best quote I have heard this morning from a KU fan - "That was the longest rushing play of KU's season."
The group of officials that the Big XII rotates suck. They tend to favor home teams at all venues. Coaches who get on the refs seem to get extra calls that others don't. Frank Martin seemed to put the fear of god into the refs. Couple that with the Octagon during his tenure and KSU got their share of calls.
Self has the most tenure of anyone right now and knows the officials in the conference. If he ever leaves, Phog's homecourt advantage with the refs will go away considerably. The new group of coaches is already showing that in other venues. This is one of the more laid back group of coaches the Big XII has had in years.
Higgins was reffing the WVU-TTU game. I wouldn't trust Higgins with watering my yard let alone a freaking Big 12 BBall game. I still don't know how he is employed.
If we're within 10 points, I'll be thrilled. I expect Baylor to absolutely drill us. They're on a 4 game win streak over us that directly correlates with a lot of these guys getting to Waco and that length/athleticism leading to infinite second chance points and tons of blocked shots.
I actually thought last night was one of the better called Big 12 games I've seen in a while. They missed a couple head scratchers, and it was a loose whistle with lots of allowed inside contact...but it was pretty consistent. But college basketball officiating kinda sucks, you either live with it or don't watch the sport, pretty much.
They missed a travel two possessions before that allowed K-State to tie it, but I don't expect much outrage on that one since they haven't been butt$#@! the conference for a dozen years. It is what it is.
