Quite a few bad calls. What did ace get flagged for after the TD. The first down for UM, and the ruffing the kicker, i never saw him even touch the kicker.

It was running into the kicker.

UM's kicker basically kicked our guy in the head. It was a 5 yd penalty that UM declined b/c it was such a good punt that pinned us inside the 10.

i know what u mean on that QB sneak...i went livid on that one too bc foward progress was stopped behind the marker and they blew the whistle way too late and gave them the 1st down

Do y'all think we will send this in to the head refs and make them look at it? Or what?

Does anyone know what the announcers said during the measurement when the ref signalled first down? I was too busy yelling at the tv to hear....I imagine Gruden was rather surprised but I would be curious to know what they said.

When they showed the inch gap between the ball and the marker, Gruden said something to the effect of…

“Every referee I’ve ever seen would say that is short. For some reason this ref called it a 1st down.”

I think it was more like "Every person I have ever known would say that's not a first down."

They're too busy trying to salvage the conference to worry about their crappy officials missing calls.

That ref was just doing his Leslie Nelson impression from Naked Gun.

I'll bet Vincent Smith the RB wishes the ref had not blown the call. He had to pay for JC's anger. LOL.

I don't think SC should let this drop. This was such a blatant eff up, it really does seem like the ref had money on the game. We need to be pushing for an investigation and some disciplinary action for this.

Not sure it will do any good but I emailed the Big East commissioner, Assistant Commissioner etc and just said it was bad for the college game to not have a comment. I tried to take a tactful approach instead of just a pissed off fan approach.

It may not seem like it is important, but if you get enough calls like you got yesterday with the conferences not even having an explanation, it will start to impact fans perceptions on how fair they believe the game is being called.

It really does. I mean what can you do when the ref refuses to follow the rules? Walk out of the game?
