    You realize they brought all the bad pub on themselves, right?

    Re: Congrats Iowa

    NO such thing as overcoming bad publicity in football. All the bad pub in the world is irrelevant to the game of football. Iowa overcame missing a starting RB and WR, no more. Missouri also was missing their starting RB who missed all season for a major crime.

    Fans, especially on message boards, continually overrate the effect that off-field problems and distractions have on the on field performance of a team. The only thing that actually affects the team is missing players for suspension.

    Uh sure.........blah blah blah, who cares? They just beat one of our conference opponents if you didnt notice. It was a nice thought, but really who cares on this site? Not I. Thank you, I feel better now.

    The replays didn't appear to provide conclusive evidence to overturn the call on the field.

    Are we talking about the 4th down catch near the end of the game? The call on the field was a catch. So apparently there was conclusive evidence to overturn the call.

    The 4th down ruling was quite the hose job. Irrefutable, hardly.

    I'm pretty sure the replay official factored in the fear that he and his family might be victims of drug violence if he didn't overturn the call.

    I agree. The replay officials must of had a view of the play that tv did not have.

    Don't worry, the refs made up for it by NOT calling the blatant holding as their DB rounded the corner on the INT return for a TD.

    Re: Congrats Iowa

    That was a hose job call, but Mizzou kind of brought it on themselves. That pick 6 was the most bone-headed play I've seen in awhile. Apparently no one informed Gabbert that he can throw it out of bounds.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
