I'm going to play devil's advocate here -- that's a bad picture.  It takes a screenshot of the broadcast and just rotates it.  It gives the illusion that we're looking right down the line, but you can still see that the image as at an angle from behind the play.  That said, the bigger indicator of a first down was that we could plainly see where Alexander's backside was, and at the very forward point of the ball it was sitting on his backside.  Ultimately this picture is nothing more than changing something to see what you want to see.

But Michigan fans seriously need to shut the f**k up about this being "photoshopped".  I guess simply rotating an image is considered photoshopping these days.

Bad officiating or not, what I want to know is why this happens so much.  Is the ball that heavy that you can't carry it another 3 feet?  If I'm Stoops, or any coach in that situation, I'm making the player run many 120 yard sprints with ball in hand the whole time.

first American to medal in the Steeplechase since 1984

And Jager will be the second in the men's race.

I just find it so perplexing that this is only the 3rd Olympics in which they've had women's steeplechase.

The only thing the NCAA needs to do is pull the rug out on the entire athletics department.  It's a financially crippling move that will have a permanent impact on the university.  Sure, the NCAA can't toss anyone in jail, but when you're talking about institutional immorality such as this, hitting their bottom dollar is just as effective.
