    And fans can also choose to move on. Nowhere did I say everyone else has to do the same; I simply said I have. Doesn't make me any less of a fan.

    Very painful. I have to consider it almost a lost season and have moved on waiting for basketball. (At least until next Sat).

    I saw that at the game too as did a guy I sit by. We were quiet upset with that one.

    Burying refs alive works for me.

    You are putting a lot of thought into referee solutions. You've given us more than one viable option.

    I'm not judging, just noticing. That's a plethora of solutions.

    Next time it is short yardage, just put Woody under qb.

    It's ridiculous in our day and age that this is still happening. The refs came in and were clearly going to give Texas an opportunity to win that game. The bias is undeniable.

    The money is bigger than ever now in non-profit college sports. The famous and most recognizable brands need to be protected.

    I suspect it gets much worse before it gets better, but with more measures to make it look legitimate that actually have enough loopholes to preserve the current big names.

    I definitely thought this right away, and spots sucked all night... on both sides, they were getting good spots and were getting jipped... I know it sounds homerish but it was clear the whole game...

    Re: If you DVR'd the Texas game...

    I just watched the replay of the game on my xbox 360. All three analysts considered the ball to be out at the goal line also..Which is kind of surprising 'cause it seemed like Jesse Palmer was all over UT's nuts the whole game..But after watching it again there were other factors outside being spotted short and of the non-call strip by George..Corner SR had a pretty crucial interference call which was a legit call..Had he turned around he could have possibly had a pick. I also think we should have nutted up and ran the ball on third down when we chose to kick that last field goal. Either way we can't get this game back though it's tough to stomache.

    Even if we only sneak out of this season with four wins I wouldn't consider it a total loss..Wimberly and Bundrage have proven to be go-to guys and Bibbs is solid as well so this makes for enthusiasm for next year. We're seeing steady improvement week to week and there will be a couple upsets if we play smart. We're not world beaters by any means, but we've only lost our games by single digit scores..Not bad when you consider our losses at LB and the DL.

    Re: If you DVR'd the Texas game...

    I sit in Upper deck on the 48 yard line and the spots were terrible all night. By the time the 4th rolled around we were joking that they should add another category to the stat line. Yards rushing - Yards passing - Penalty Yards - and Yards by Official I realize that sometimes TX yards could go into either the Penalty or Official category. We estimated that TX got an easy 15-20 yards off of generous spots by the zebras.

    Classy. How about if we just go ahead and beat them by, say, about thirty?
