honestly, not really. there were questionable calls on both sides of the court. It may seem like some went the other way instead of ours, but that really happens in all sports. The officiating is not the reason we lost today. It had more to do with us having no answer for their offense in the paint.

Also, I think if the team had played with the same intensity in the first half as they did in the 2nd half, the outcome would have been much different.
But I believe most who are realistic understand that going into Rupp Arena most calls by the refs will likely go against you. Playing basketball at Lexington, Kentucky = playing football at Tuscaloosa or Auburn, in terms of officials calls.
No LSU didnt get screwed by the refs. In fact, I thought the one ref that had the red arse at Calipari in the first half gave us a few calls...most notably when Tuba blocked the shot and it was called off the UK guy.

I think Blanton said it well in an interview I heard him in either Thursday or yesterday. When you play on the road in the SEC you have to expect you won't get all the calls and play through it and play with that edge.
And that goes double at Rupp when 24K fans bitch and whine loudly at any call that doesn't go their way.
And we did that today. Now let's start doing that against teams we are supposed to beat.

There were a couple of questionable calls both ways, but in the first half every bounce, every roll, every break went kentuckys way. Props to our guys for never giving up and coming back on those a-holes. Sign of great character and pride. They respect their coach and teamates, gotta like that!
