    Chizik Before Halftime

    I think Gene Chizik not taking the bull from the officials who didn't even want to go to the booth to determine how much time should have been taken off the clock was a huge story line of the game. We need someone to fight like that when we all know we're not going to get any help from the officials. Not to mention, it really ignited the crowd.

    I was glad to see the fire.

    Re: Chizik Before Halftime

    yeah, so what the hell was that about calling the players back from heading to the locker room for a timeout. just so OU could take a knee on the posession?

    He had called a timeout just before half, to see if OU would punt, and you could maybe get a bad snap or something. They went to a knee. But he was looking for every advantage he could find, which is refreshing.

    Re: Chizik Before Halftime

    My opinion was that Chizik must have tried to call time out with :20 on the clock or so, but kept the complaint to himself when they asked about. The official call at the 1:00 or so mark was pretty ridiculous. I'm glad Chizik didn't let that one go!

    Actually we called it...maybe we wanted to bring down their rushing average for the day by making them lose a yard or two on it ;)



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Getting conflicting reports here... who called the timeout? Iowa State or OU?

    You're right. The score keeper needs to do a better job of removing timeouts from the scoreboard when teams use them.

    The PxP says ISU called the timeout.

    Yeah, ISU called it. Not sure why - but I guess why not?

    BTW, from what I could gather (the scoreboard operator SUCKS!), we only had 1 TO left and it was 3rd down - not fourth. Not seeing what he thought we could gain with a :04 left (no time to run a play even if there was a bad snap).

    But again, why not?

    Personally, I think he was pi$$ed at seeing all his ball players taking off for the locker room with time on the clock.

    Re: Chizik Before Halftime

    What happened to home cookin' with the clock operation? Why the hell did the clock operator stop the freaking clock after a completion and a tackle that wasn't even close to a first down or to the sideline??! That was just unreal. Makes me wonder how many other times it has happened when I haven't paid attention to the clock.
