This, and end of discussion and after finding out Jimbo showed the refs a still frame at halftime means the refs were looking for it and did not see it in an unbiased fashion. Still frame is useless, you need to see the play in live action the db engaged the receiver right at the line of scrimmage, I doubt he could have run a route at all.
I agree, after seeing it again it was the wrong call. The ref should have kept the flag in his pocket. If that's offensive pass interference then everytime a receiver fights to get separation off the line of scrimmage is offensive pass interference.
I can't help but think this loss doesn't hurt Notre Dame's chances very much. If they win out with that schedule I think they get in. Best game of the year so far by the way.
I have found the opposite to be true.
With the Rose being part of the playoff this year I would like to see the best B1G versus Pac matchup possible between the teams not making it.
WVU played Oklahoma tough in Morgantown and bammer tough on tuscaloser, WV is a good test for any team.
Every gameday host outside the sec should give them this treatment, or ignore them completely.
Read PG Wodehouse (of course) and everything you can find by Evelyn Waugh and W.Somerset-Maugham and most importantly read Dickens.
He has been on the Committee on Infractions for the ncaa while also serving as deputy commissioner of the sec. I wonder if he will continue in that roll or if Emmert may see it now as a conflict of interests?
tic-tacs or PEZ?
College football for over one hundred years was the only major American sport that selected its national champion by polls. I think the concept of rewarding the team that had the best season overall became ingrained because of that. Can that old concept of "team with best season" mesh with the now expanded playoff? I doubt it.
Your solution sounds like a mini NFL, no thanks. Keep what is special about college football (at least what is left of what is special.)
How about this new idea? Let the season play out, have the conference champions compete in their traditional bowl tie ins and on January second have any number of various polls declare who they think deserves the national championship. What's old is new again.
I'd love to agree with you but college football ruined what was special about it when they introduced the bcs. 4 is the right number though.
Old Columbus North' Hagley Field nestled into the South Clintonville/Old North neighborhoods in Columbus. It's like the Wrigley Field of Central Ohio High School football. It has real to goodness grass as well. You can take your dog for a walk on a crisp autumnal evening and catch some of the game from the sidewalk above the north east end of the field.
Every buckeye fan should be wary of judging teams on how they perform at Purdue. That place has the curse of crappy football on it and MSU still won comfortably.
Honestly half the guys in the stands including the angry old guy look like they could take out that Henderson fellow pretty easily.
Alabama Huntsville has a Div.1 team.
More like 4 ounces.
Is the Fulmer Cup still a thing?
An average Big Ten coach already worked the sec (nick saban).
That is still preferable to two teams from the same conference in the playoffs.
If Michigan is smart they take a serious look at Stoops. His North East Ohio roots would be a pain in Ohio State's backside if he was recruiting for Michigan.
