Yet every game thread I see ku fans moaning about the refs and anti ku fans claiming we get special treatment.
I get tired of it in pretty much every sport, by pretty much every fan base... and sometimes it's like I'm watching a different game. And it's not necessarily calling out the bad fouls and what not, it's that now every call means the game is somehow fixed, as opposed to simple incompetence. And if people really do think it's that bad or that most games are fixed, WTF even watch it? I've sat at games and listened to people cry for the entire freakin' game
... seems like a waste of time and money if you hate it that much.
As far as KU, last year's game in Manhattan definitely stands out... it was laughable (mostly because the worst calls were going KU's way
). And at the end of the game vs. Duke last season.
