    The ref in that video IS THE SAME REF that was spotting the ball for the ISU/texas game. Brad Van Vark.

    Brad Van Vark lives in Pella. Surprised he is allowed to do games in Iowa.

    Regardless I think the spotting criticism is kind of grasping for straws. Spotting is the most inexact part of sports IMO.

    Interesting that some who officiate and post on here were also pretty upset with the very poor spotting of the ball as well.

    No one expects spotting to be perfect. This is the first game I have watched where it was so blatant that ISU was constantly getting spotted short. It was all game. All game.
