+1000. Gene Smith better earn his keep, raise hell during the off-season and make sure changes are made or mark my word this will continue to happen.
100% agree. It's only going to get worse unless something is done in the off season.
Herbie has become an ESPN cuck.
There was only one shooter in Dealey plaza....
This. Any time there is a man behind the curtain making a final decision it is poor optics at best and ripe for corruption.
Agreed. They are paid professionals and need to be held accountable.
Correction-we got robbed by the policeman who picked it up and didn't do the right thing.
You should only have to beat the team across the field, not them AND the refs, to win a game.
This. The "Wizard of Oz man behind the curtain" booth reviews need to be drastically changed. The way it is now has poor optics at best and is rife for bias/corruption.
This says it all:
Veteran NFL official and collegiate officiating administrator Terry McAulay led the chorus on Twitter of those second-guessing the officials for overturning the Ohio State touchdown. “There is absolutely no way replay should have reversed,” he said. “’Indisputable video evidence’ is simply not there.”
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith agreed, texting Yahoo Sports that McAulay was “100% correct.” He added: “Unreal!! And feel free to share how pissed I am.” [Smith said he didn’t ask for an explanation.]
Agree on all points.
Yep-this evenings Emmy goes to Lawrence. He really sold it.
This. The better team did not win and the players know it. LSU will whip the Tigers.
How do the refs not call face mask on Young (his helmet was almost ripped off) and multiple holds throughout the game on the Clemson O line?
For those of you who never played a competitive sport let me tell you something, the players know. And tonight the Bucks were the better team.
Okay enough of this BS:
1) Dobbins catch was a TD. He had control when he broke the plane.
2) Targeting rule has got to change. Lawrence lowered his head causing the contact. If that's the way we are going to play from here on I'm teaching my QB's to lower their helmet into the defender to draw the flag.
3) Fuller play was a fumble. He took 3 steps for Christ Sake.
4) Roughing the kicker was really running into the kicker. Our player pulled up.
Bottom line Bucks outplayed them and should have won the game.
Refs keeping Clemson in the game. Bucks need to stay the course and we win.
Half way through my bottle of Blantons. Letter B in hour of the Bucks!
^ This. I think this will be a see-saw match with the lead changing hands multiple times capped off by a OSU field goal with 2:00 minutes to play. D steps up and shuts down Clemson's final drive, intercepting Lawrence and punching the Bucks ticket to the big showdown with LSU in New Orleans.
ESPiN-the same “gurus” who preseason predicted scUM to win the B10 East led by the best D in the country and OSU to finish 4th in the B10.....
At the end of the day, this will make winning the Natty even sweeter. Question is, which reporter are they going to insert for the Deer in The Headlights interview (ala Mark May in 2015) post-game after we win?
