Thanks and good luck in the NFL. May you be forever Young.
Shoot an apple off the ref’s head. The closest arrow wins. The booth ref can review and call it. Based on the call we can all guess the outcome of all the reviews henceforth.
Love JKD. To me he was the soul of our 2019 offense. Thank you for the memorable 3 years.
2019. I can walk head high knowing our young men fought thru adversities and fell just a little short.
but was the coin going loose inside his palm?
Targeting by the rule? Yes. Ejection? No.
During a review any missed flags around the play should be fair game for review. Who knows if not for the hands to the face CY gets to Lawrence before Wade.
UV for you. Some here can’t handle sarcasm or jokes.
Guys, I have cracked this:
1. In the replay booth there should be 2 refs - one republican and one democrat. if they both don’t come to the same conclusion then the ruling on the field stands.
2. In the field the crew should come from the north, east, west, south and 1 Canadian.
If i am going to be congratulating anyone that would be the booth ref. Thanks for deciding the outcome in your favor and robbing the opportunity off our hard fighting buckeyes in overcoming all their miscues. I can reluctantly take the targeting penalty but the ejection changed the course of the game.
I will be rooting for Ohio’s son Joe Burrow - on Jan 13, draft day and in NFL
Very profound. I did not know that!
Taking defense to the next level. No one, that includes Fabio wannabe, should be able to run on us. Red Zone defense was bad against good teams.
There is a separate thread where I had suggested the same https://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/college-sports/2019/12/111017/a-fix-for-officiating-for-the-playoffs
The review was implemented to correct the human errors on the field not to add controversies. “Indisputable evidence” is there to avoid any controversy and go with the call on the field. Some booth refs are thinking they are above the field refs and impacting the game.
Just need to add 2 more to your list to complete it:
If Shawn Wade doesn’t get ejected we win
If Fuller TD doesn’t get overturned we win
Lawrence was down holding his chest/shoulder and not his head. Booth ref either doesn’t have common sense or blatantly used that opportunity to give clemson an advantage. This is the same ref who was responsible for allowing time for Auburn to kick FG against Alabama just before half time.
Frustrated. This was a championship team let down by some poor play calling/execution in redzone and punt block call.
Pissed? Great. Gene, now go do something about it.
A catch is good if receiver completes 3 jumping jacks after possession without the ball becoming loose at any point.
Young men, time to get paid now. Excel at the next level, be model citizens, share the gifts you have and make your family proud. Buckeye nation will be rooting for you all the way!
1. Officiating crew should be picked by NCAA
2. Each ref can come from a diff conference. No need for the entire crew to have worked together.
3. replay booth to have 2 refs, each not knowing who the other one is. Both have to come up with the same decision on a replay review otherwise the ruling on the field stands.
4. Evaluate all calls the next day. The ones with the highest scores get to booth ref the playoffs.
We shouldn’t have to overcome the refs to win a game. Our self inflicted mistakes aside we just got robbed.
henceforth the booth ref should be referred to as espn 12th man
The only thing “loose” are the marbles in the booth ref’s head!
Agree. Lawrence was down holding his shoulder not his head. Defender needs to protect his head/neck as well. Stupid rule that allows the ref to interpret the situation the way they want it to.
