    "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    I was rewatching the game this morning and holy carp was that an egregiously bad call by the officials. And it led directly to a score by Oklahoma State. Can anybody explain to me how that was anywhere close to being a personal foul?

    Wasn't there an equally bad one early against K-State? I think it was called against Broomfield, even though the play came to him.

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    I thought he clearly contacted him shoulder pad to shoulder pad but the helmet did touch the bottom of the facemask after contact. The official on the end line was masked from where the shoulder pads collided as it was on the field side. I thought it was a bad call but my brother thought it was the right call. We agreed that the no call the other way around later in the game was definitely a missed call. Brutal helmet to helmet and the ref couldn't find his hanky.

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    the only thing I can think of is that the ref had a bad angle and it looked to him like it was a head to head hit, but yeah that was a pretty bad call. Klein's "holding" penalty on the same drive was also pretty bad.

    After the call, my brother-in-law (who is from OK) said, "Oh, by the way, we're in a home-cookin' stadium".

    Yes, both those calls were really bad.

    The holding call on Klein was much worse. At least there was something to look at on the targeting call. There was NOTHING on that holding call. Refs clearly handed them 7 on that drive.

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    The worst call was the no call on the PI later in the game. Guy completely turned our receive around before the ball was even close.

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    Also saw a play on the highlights on cyclones.tv and one of our DL did strip randell before the whistle blew.. It was clear on the video... but oh well.. dont think these calls would have really mattered.. other then maybe I would have covered on my 14.5 wager...

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    The refs have done us no favors in the B12 conference this year. I suggest we are a few calls to the bad side overall. It is like we are not a team from Texas or Oklahoma so we get the shaft. It should be interesting for the ref calls in our WVU game.

    Yeah, that was a pure pathetic call. The ref has no defense except poor vision and decision making

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    Both calls were horrible and a lot of you know I'll defend officials because I am one (basketball) but both of those calls were indefensible and they were made by the same official.

    The targeting call was a joke. The holding on AK47 was even worse. Not only did he not hold, I'm not even sure he TOUCHED him.

    I always tell new officials, I'd rather apologize to a coach for not seeing something than guess and call something that didn't happen.

    I forgot about that one. You're right, that was easily the worst call of the game.

    Re: "Targeting" call on Washington on OSUs first scoring drive

    I'd say the call on Broomfield for the KSU game was a bad call....he clearly lead with pads and hit the guy square in the chest. The Okie Light call against Washington was a bit more likely to get called as the ball had passed and he did go for the head area more....I just didn't like that one as if I remember right it was on 3rd down on an incomplete pass.

    3rd and 9 from the 20 if I remember correctly.
