    THE pass interference call

    Can anyone who watched the game on TV tell me about this crucial penalty. At the game it looked like a totally BS call. Don't get me wrong, I clearly saw LJ shove the K-State reciever. However I could not believe the flag was not picked up.

    How bad was it on tv? Did the announcers say anything? I don't think Yao Ming could have caught that ball.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    While there was no way he would have caught that ball, I've never seen them pick one up when it was "that close".

    Re: THE pass interference call

    The ball appeared to land out of bounds by about 10 yards. The fact the officials didn't take a moment to at least discuss how "uncatchable" it was, was the most disappointing aspect to me.

    From where I was sitting it didn't look "that close"

    Re: THE pass interference call

    In retrospect, we get the call, they don't score 3, the rest of the game goes the same..We win.

    That's the nature of the beast however. I really liked the way Rhoads handled this after the game, basically blowing it off. It works the other way too..

    Re: THE pass interference call

    The ball didn't even land on the yard wide of white paint around the field. There wasn't anyone on the planet coaching that ball in bounds. Yeah the receiver got jacked, but he wasn't catching it without a step ladder.

    CPR was hot on the official's *** after that call.

    I watched the game on TV and it looked to me like he wold of needed a rocket up his *** to catch that ball.

    Re: THE pass interference call

    that ball was uncatchable and the flag should have been picked up - but the players have to smart enough not to just knock an eligible receiver to the ground in front of three officials.

    Re: THE pass interference call

    I think if the receiver wouldn't have been jacked so blatantly on the play, the flag would not have been thrown.

    This isn't an excuse for the officials because he wasn't going to catch that ball either way. Just saying in all the FB games I've watched...that gets flagged 99-100 even though the ball is obviously uncatchable.

    Re: THE pass interference call

    The call probably should have been holding by the defender. I guess I had a problem with the pass interference because of the uncatchable ball, but if they called holding I wouldn't have disagreed. The fact that the receiver was hit so early really made it tough on the officials to call anything else.

    Re: THE pass interference call

    From my vantage point (which was a good one), there was more tripping over feet than contact by LJ. Forget where the ball was.

    Re: THE pass interference call

    It was a horrible call. The refs hurt us bad Saturday.

    We played an inspired game against K-Strate, but bad luck and the refs ruined our chances.

    Silly me. And to think I thought it was the two turnovers, the freak TD on K-State's last possession, and the blocked PAT were the reasons why our chances were ruined...

    Poor call and a dumb play by LJ.

    Why in the hell can't our team learn some discipline on the field?

    Re: THE pass interference call

    Silly to blame this loss on the refs. That call was a poor call, no doubt about it, but we had plenty of opportunities to counter that one bad call and win this game. I think we're playing sound football for the most part (clearly some areas that still need work). This team is a better team than last year, and for that I'm happy.
