    Towels and Penalties

    Two totally unrelated items. Who sponsored the gold towels last night? And isn't it amazing how well we do when everybody keeps their heads and there are no stupid penalties?

    lol I thought this thread was going to be about how the towels were the same color as the penalty flag. And people were not throwing them on the field.

    Towels say sponsored by Hy-Vee and Coca-Cola.
    Yes, we did well in spite of some stupid penalties.

    Re: Towels and Penalties

    Hayworth hicks made a lot of big mistakes last night. I know he had at least a holding call, horse collar tackle, and a false start. I'm sure he had more, but can't remember. Other than that everyone else didn't make a whole lot of mental errors penalty wise

    Was the horsecollar tackle iffy at all? Everyone around me in section 10 was shouting that he had the jersey and not the pads. I haven't watched a replay, though.

    He started horsecollar and tried to adjust his tackle to avoid the penalty. Probably an ok call.

    Re: Towels and Penalties

    Not to mention that he's an offensive lineman who suddenly has to play defense. Stupid penalty, I'll give him a pass on that one.

    That tackle and penalty saved the game! He definitely gets a pass on that one.

    It was probably the right call. The refs have watched that penalty big time this year.

    Re: Towels and Penalties

    I could agree with mistakes, but there wasn't a single STUPID penalty yesterday. And I also have to comment after all the ripping we did on the reffs when we didn't have the "A Crew" The refs were quite good last night. I'm sure OSU wasn't happy about the FG call, but I can' tthink of one call against us or OSU that I thought was clearly bogus. Sad that I have to put it that way after the last 2 months because I think the reffs truely were very good last night.

    The horse collar was the right call. Tough to bag on an offensive guy for getting a little high. He did let off so it wasn't flagrant, but no provision for that.

    Re: Towels and Penalties

    There were some penalties, but none that were agregious. None of the dumb ones from LJ head-butting, or kicking the ball in frustration.

    Hick's horse collar was a crap call. My OSU friends sitting beside us even said we got hosed on that one. It all worked out OK in the end.

    Oh, and MAD PROPS to HyVee and Coke.

    Re: Towels and Penalties

    He got all jersey...but with that big of a guy, it looks worse than it was. I give the refs a pass on it now, but I was pretty animated about that at the time.
