    I'm not sayin' it's gonna' happen, but...

    Prepare yourselves for a statement from the Big 12 regarding the end of the ISU-CU game...and we all know how those statements usually go when ISU is involved.

    From the AP recap of the game...

    Hawkins said he'll seek an interpretation from the Big 12 office and insisted, "We snapped it before it went to zero."

    Maybe we should get one of those CyBookie things going on this...

    They should get a statement from the Big 12 on why an offensive team should be able to commit a penalty to stop the clock. Without the penalty the they would have never got the kick off in the first place. They need to adopt the NFL rule with an automatic clock run off on an offensive penalty inside 1 minute.

    I would like to see the replay, but I was watching the clock and I clearly saw 0:00 and then saw the ball snapped on the first kick. There should have been no second kick. And even then the ref was standing right next to the holder, he started the clock and it took at least 2 seconds for them to snap it, it was like the snapper was not ready.

    I agree completely with these statements; however, those refs were very indecesive and didn't handle the end of the game very well.

    Regardless of what happened, we would have won in overtime with a fade route from Meyer to Blythe - no doubt in my mind.

    I thought for all the madness that happened in the last 5 seconds or so, the refs did a fairly decent job of controlling things and explaining them so it didn't incite a riot. I agree that both kicks didn't get snapped before the clock ranout however, so either way, we would have won.

    I'm with you-IMO they didn't even get the first kick off

    John Walters seemed pretty adamant after the game that the snap wasn't even close to being before the clock hit zero.

    That was the craziest ending to a game i have ever seen... If you just think about the ends of some of the games in recent history it is wild...

    UNLV, Missouri last year... now this.

    Rules are rules! If the Big Twelve comments in any way negatively about this or apologizes to Colorado that will be a bunch of crap! This is the BIG TWELVE!!!, THIS IS NOT INTRAMURAL FOOTBALL!!!

    There is no way the snap was made before 0:00 hit the clock; but HEY those were the prettiest "no good" field goals I've ever seen!

    I am sure there will be some good video of this all on the news tonight. I have not seen the replay yet, I cannot wait to see it.

    I was watching on tv but between the sweat off my brow and the fingernail pieces flying my vision was blurred.

    I never even thought to watch the clock and ball placement timing.

    Sidenote: the second time they kicked the FG to tie, was that just me, or was it as loud as the Iowa game at that point?

    Re: I'm not sayin' it's gonna' happen, but...

    I just watched the replay, I do not think they had one second left on the first try and the penalty, the second one it is close as to whether it was 0:00 before the snap, but when you watch it, I counted to 2 before the clock when to zero after the ref started his arm.

    We deserve this win for the comeback, and to me they should not have had the first try, much less the second chance.

    It seemed very loud for most of the game to me....but I don't know if it was as loud as Iowa tho, since I wasn't there.
