    I've lost nearly all faith in college football

    After seeing that call go against Indiana in the Indiana-Michigan game, there's nearly no hope for the "little guy" anymore.

    Those refs were so intimidated by the 100,000 plus fans to make the correct call, and the review officials must be paid by the NCAA because they sure wanted powerhouse Michigan to win that game.

    That was possibly the worst call I've ever seen? Indiana's coach should have walked his team off the field at that point IMO.

    I'd be shocked if the Big Ten doesn't issue an apology Monday and say that the officals missed that call.

    Are you talking about the dual possession- should have belonged to the offense call? I only caught the last replay, and was still surprised that Michigan got that one.

    Nope, I'm not confused at all. It's perfectly clear that it's a positive for the NCAA if Michigan returns to prominence.... period.

    It's also why USC can practically get away with murder (Reggie Bush anyone?), but Lucca Staiger gets nailed with an entire year suspension. Make examples out of schools like ISU and let everything slide with the big name schools.

    Indiana had no chance to get that call at the end. None.

    Re: I've lost nearly all faith in college football

    I don't see the Big Ten issuing an apology or any statement that they've done something wrong. Behind the scenes they may counsel the review guys but there will not be any public statement because they never do anything wrong.

    Haha, I was just kidding. I was arguing this in another thread and one poster said I was confused, along with the announcers.

    a little much . . . Should they have then their ball and gone home too?

    I agree it was a terrible call.

    One mediocre Big Ten team evidently beat another mediocre Big Ten team. Woo.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Indiana had the ball with 2 minutes left in the game and down by 3 pts. They complete a first down pass in which the Indiana WR catches the ball and is immediately tied up with a Michigan DB and they go down to the ground together with the ball. After they are on the ground, the Michigan player wrestles the ball away from the Indiana WR.... and the ref gives Michigan the ball.

    The play gets reviewed, and they say the play stands. The announcers on ESPN said over and over again while the play was being reviewed that it was a no-brainer that it should be Indiana ball.

    Indiana's head coach went bonkers, which he should have. IMO, he should have stood up for his players even more and got himself booted from the game, but that's just me.

    Re: I've lost nearly all faith in college football

    I understand now why it wasn't overturned. Replay cannot decide if it was joint possesion which it was. The ruling on the field was and interception and because the ball never hit the ground the ruling on the field had to stand. Because replay couldn't over turn that the call stood. So the game officals screwed Indiana not the replay officals

    Most likely yes. Those refs on the field wanted to get out of the Big House alive and well, so they caved.

    So they would rather get criticized for the next week by the national media, their peers and the Big 10 than take 10 minutes of **** going to their cars in the parking lot? This isn't South/Central America where refs are killed after a soccer game, this is college football.
