    When will we learn to stop reaching at the goal-line?

    I know it didn't hurt us this time, but we were very close to having a touchback called had they had time to review the play. I don't think it was a touchdown.

    Unless it's 4th down, I would hope we've learned our reaching lesson.

    WHAT????? I am guessing you are talking about the Nickel touchdown where meyer flipped him the ball, which was a touchdown. The only way that would of not been called a touchdown is if they claimed he did not have control of the ball, where it would of been imcomplete....where are you getting this touchback stuff from?

    Yes, but once the ball crosses the plane, it a touchdown regardless of what happenes after the ball crosses the plane. The only reason they could of called it back was because he did not have controll of it when it crossed the plane.

    He had control until he hit the pylon, which knocked the ball loose. The moment the inside of the pylon is touched, "TOUCHDOWN!"

    There's only a handful of people on this board who would complain about a great touchdown play. Congratulations, Clone2thebone.

    Dont get me wrong, I am not complaing. That play was an awesome read by Meyer and an even greater effort by Nickel. I am just saying the ONLY way that could of been deemed not a TD was if they said he did not have control. Knowing the circumstances of the play, I can guarentee it was looked at by the replay officials and they saw no reason to review it.

    I didn't think it was a TD, but I'll watch it again.

    Must've just been me and the announcers who came back from a commercial to question it. I forgot to put my cyclone blinders on when watching the game.

    Did someone just make a post about NOT reaching at the goalline? This isn't junior high football.

    LOL! I think you forgot to put your glasses on. I would probably agree with the announcers who continuely called McCarney by McCarthey.

    Re: When will we learn to stop reaching at the goal-line?

    ABC probably did not have the camera angle to prove that he had not broke the plane, so they let old dogs lie. And ABC wanted a tighter game. And the replay people were alseep at the switch. The play was the highlight of the season for me.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: When will we learn to stop reaching at the goal-line?

    This was obviously a touchdown by Nickel. He had control, and on the replay, it was clearly shown. The point I am now arguing is that simply crossing the plain results in a touchdown. If this were true, then Jason Harris' fumble against Baylor last year should have been a touchdown. He was holding the ball over the endzone when it was knocked loose. The problem was no part of his body had come into contact with the endzone. I wondered if this was just an NCAA thing because in the NFL it would have been 6.
