09:21 AM ET 03.02 | Earlier this week, the Big 12 issued a vague and cryptic statement that admitted its officials made mistakes at the end of Kansas' victory at Iowa State on Monday night. On Thursday, Kansas coach Bill Self said that statement -- or more accurately, the fact it was even released -- felt like a slight over-reach from the league office. "I really believe," Self said, "and I'm not speaking behind the Big 12 office's back or anything like that, that I think we're on the verge of crossing the line, that I think isn't good." The Big 12's statement did not specify which calls had been blown, and Self said he had been given no such insight from the league office. But among those in question: KU forced overtime after a questionable no-call on an Elijah Johnson drive to the basket.

Good one!

I have no problem with a "questionable no-call" if the ref is running down the court trying to get into position to see the play. Sometimes players get in the way and the ref can't really see. If the ref is making the effort then I have no problem with the "no-call"

THE OFFICIALS BLEW IT. I DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE. IF YOU DON'T THINK THEY DID, YOU NEED TAKE ANOTHER CLOSE LOOK. THESE GUYS ARE SUPPOSE TO BE SOME OF THE BEST. YES THEY WILL MISS CALLS, BUT THE OBVIOUS ONES THERE IS NO EXCUSE. THEY MISSED THE FOUL AND CERTAINLY MISSED THE CHARGE. THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE GUTS TO MAKE THE TOUGH CALL.
