    We did not deserve to win

    Screw-job by the refs or not, it would have never gotten to that point if we just bat-down the hail mary at the end of the 1st half.

    True. Can't let that happen. Ever. Cost us the game as it turns out.

    the three major fouls at the end of the game cost the game.

    I agree...we lost the game. It's on us...not the refs.

    Why is it always one or the other? Looking at the whole game, I saw several things that could have changed the outcome of the game. I do agree that batting that ball down would have helped tremendously, as well as scoring a TD rather than a FG, as well as getting the correct call on the strip by George.

    Thanks for starting this thread, I was wondering what happened.

    Yeah, there are lots of "what ifs" in a game, but that Hail Mary really is a very big dagger...we can control that, not a refs whistle.

    And we made up for that on the field to be up by 6 points when something out of our control (the ref's payoffs) prevented us from winning.

    That and it's 2nd @ 1 inside the 5 and we can't get the 1st down and have to kick the FG to only go up 6. Then of course the numerous P.I. penalties.

    This is true. 1981 called.....and it wants its Redskin Smurf corners back. Our corners looked like they do not understand what referees will and will not call penalties. Tackling a reciever without looking at the ball is a penalty...there free coaching. Sad. But, CPR, you got to recruit better corners that are taller than 5'-7". It is like McCarney all over again. And the reason I have little empathy is the jawwing and smack talking that was so apparent from our guys......so boring and lame. Ug.

    Re: We did not deserve to win

    No, that was too early in the game to cost us. The one that cost us was the replay official refusing to overturn the fumble. It was clear George got it and there was no early whistle. It is so typical, if it was reversed Texas gets the ball. Simple.

    It was seven points. Take those seven points away from UT and they lose.

    That's what losers do. They lose.

    Sorry, but this is asinine. The correct call on the fumble wins the game, regardless of anything that happened up to that point.
