    The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but how was this not reviewed? The only part of his body that wasn't streched out into the end zone was his feet. How did the ref not call that a touchdown? How did the booth not feel that needed to be reviewed? Why did CPR not call for that to be reviewed? I realize CPR had faith that his players would score, but what if they hadn't? You could tell on his face when ARob got stuffed on the next play that he was thinking he should have had it reviewed. I just don't understand, if the booth really does review every play, how it wasn't even stopped for a closer look.

    I'd like to see someone make a side by side comparison of the Texas "touchdown" and the Iowa State "non-touchdown".

    Re: The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    We thought they should of called timeout, or waited a little longer for the next snap. As fast as we snapped the next play, I don't know if the booth would of had a good chance to look at it.

    With that said, I do have a little feeling about things when you combine that and all of the blatant holding that went uncalled.

    I don't have pics, but I'm currently watching the replay. The Gilbert "touchdown" at no point was any part of his body or the ball even close to the goal line. He rolled into the endzone pretty much.

    ARob, he dove/stretched and almost his entire body was in the endzone before any part hit the turf. When he hit ground, his feet and calves were the only part of his body not laying on orange turf.

    That play was ridiculous and there was no doubt he was in. We were in fact thinking the next play was for 2. No idea why it wasn't reviewed. I was fortunate to have been there yesterday - what an electric atmosphere...in the ISU section. The UT friends were very gracious in their loss though.

    Re: The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    I have to put this one on the ISU staff for not slowing down or requesting for a review. I guess waht I don't understand is if every play is reviewed automatically how did this seemingly get passed by. I have to think that ISU probably hurried up a bit too much which cut the time short for review. No idea.

    Agreed. On that long hail mary to Chiles, their right tackle grabbed our defensive end right in front of Gilbert and literally spun him around with no call.

    I was shocked that they didn't give the ball to Texas after Jake William's fumble, somehow saying they maintained possession before ISU knocked it out of bounds.

    Who cares? We got to drain more clock and still got the TD. Advantage ISU.

    Re: The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    Also, since when can an o-lineman tackle a defensive player? Watching the replay i swear I've seen it 4 times.

    Re: The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    The replay booth totally failed in their responsibility on that play. Somebody better get a lecture on how to do their job in the booth and stop eating popcorn. Terrible job by them.

    Just 4? I saw it two times on one play in the third quarter.

    Re: The ARob touchdown/non-touchdown call

    This ain't intramurals brother. Any team that goes on the road in the Big 12 has to fight the officials, especially at OU and UT. Just like ISU gets away with some stuff at JTS.

    Its ridiculous, but its reality.
