Paul Rhoads is mad — really, really, steaming angry mad — after his Iowa State team lost 31-30 to Texas tonight. Not only was his team frustrated by some dirty play from the Longhorns, but by the refs as well.
Late in the game, with the Cyclones leading 30-24, Johnathan Gray was stood up by the ISU defense on the goal-line, and appeared to be stripped. The ISU defender took the ball for what would have been a touchdown that essentially ended the game, but the refs blew the play dead, citing the runner down, although he clearly was still being held up (forward progress may have been stopped, but that was not the ref’s explanation). On the very next play, Gray again fumbled, but the Cyclones couldn’t come up with it.
It should probably be mentioned that Texas got down to the goal-line after a pass interference call on Iowa State in the endzone.
Safe to say, Rhoads, and many Iowa State fans, are furious. Rhoads just went on an absolutely epic rant in his postgame press conference — en...

After more than a few questionable calls tonight, Iowa State lost at home to Texas 31-30. Most notably, there was a fumble by Longhorns RB Johnathan Gray that everyone outside of Austin thought should have been called that wasn’t. Rhoads is a pretty excitable coach so we know the rant would be good after this one. He does have a legit gripe here.
Paul Rhoads wasn't happy with the Big 12's officiating in his team's 31-30 loss to Texas, and opened his postgame press conference with a nearly two-minute rant against a late controversial call.

Things can get wacky on Thursday night football, as we’ve seen giants slayed over and over and over again. This time, there were no giants, just a Texas team led by a coach delusional enough to see an 11-2 BCS bowl winner out there facing off against a scrappy bunch led by a coach who will one day be at a major school commensurate with his...
Last night, Iowa State lost to Texas 31-30 after a very controversial call by the refs appeared to decide the game — Longhorns RB Johnathan Gray fumbled on the goal-line after being stripped by ISU’s Jeremiah George. George then took off to the races, and would have returned the fumble for a score, but the refs ruled that Gray was down by contact (Texas scored a touchdown just...
