    I'm not one to blast the refs normally, but how in the world can they REVERSE those two calls. Griffin was obviously pulling the ball back in and it slipped out. That is clearly a fumble and results in no turnover and then a TD for Baylor. I'm just at a loss with the Big12 replay officials in our games. It's getting ridiculous.

    It seems replay officials have taken it unto themselves to make not just calls with irrefutable video evidence, but to make their best guess on calls too.

    Even though Woody was down IMO, there is NO way you can overturn that call with that video.

    However much it sucks...that was the right call on the Griffin "fumble". There is no tuck rule in College and while it was obvious he was doing a pump fake, the arm was moving forward and thus an incomplete pass.

    The Woody overrule was ridiculous. Should have been a TD...luckily we still got it.

    Should it have been intentional grounding then?

    I would laugh at this thread if I wasn't already crying.

    That was one of the more obvious fumbles that I've ever seen. Horrible job by the refs and replay officials on that one. He was clearly trying to bring it back in, and hauled *** after the ball when he dropped it.

    Do you even understand what the tuck rule is? The tuck rule is what MAKES that an incomplete pass. College doesn't have it - therefore it should have been a fumble.

    There was also that review in the UCONN game. UCONN guy was clearly down at the 2 and that was what was called on the field. Then they review it and give him the touchdown. Worst call I've ever seen. I have no idea what they are looking at.

    He lost the ball because he pump faked it...thus a forward arm motion. While it was obvious he wasn't trying to pass, it was the correct call per the rulebook.

    That I can buy. If that's the rule in CFB, I can deal with that.

    College doesn't have the tuck rule - therefore it's not in the rule book.

    He pulled back on it, thus the fumble......per the rulebook.

    The ball went mostly down, it looked like he was moving the ball down to me, he already moved it forward, and decided to not let it go.

    Fumble. B12 ref @$$rape us, bisnatch as usual.

    YOu are right, therer is not Tuck rule in college. Therefore, because he was pulling the football down it should have been a fumble. The Tuck rule would have made it not a fumble.

    He was not hit or under major duress. He has a 80% completion rate. He doesn't "throw" the ball into the ground. He was trying to recoil and, therefore, it was a fumble.
