This much I do know for sure.....it has been 2956days since Ohio State has lost to TTUN. There is always a bright side.

I am hopeful that this incident will cause College Football to revisit the role and authority of ‘instant replay’, as this call made by the instant replay guys shows that the pendulum has swung too far...... the reply guys absolutely cannot be allowed to rewrite, redefine or reinterpret any rule of the game. e.g. ‘make a football move’.

My two cents worth..... a good place to start would be to keep the game on the field and if a game official needs help or assistance with or to verify a call made on the field, have the game official buzz-up and ask, as opposed to the replay guys buzzing-down.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

I would rather they just leave it on the field. If the official blows the call on the field, that is part of the game. The key isn’t to give them a do over. It is to train them better. Baseball has replay, which is completely stupid. MLB has some of the best officials in pro sports. They are right almost all the time. It sucks if a call gets screwed up by an on field ref, but it is harder to take when they overturn one that isn’t irrefutable. Both are part of the game now, but why have replay when it obviously can’t be better than the calls on the field.

.......hold onto your hat, Spence. The use of technology for ball and strike calling has been agreed upon and is in the recently agreed upon contact between Major League Baseball and the Umpires Association. :( :( :(

That is completely ridiculous. That takes out some of the “art” in pitching. If they are going to do that set the machine to do it right. Chest to knees as the rule requires. That will let you know that there is an art to pitching and an art to calling balls and strikes. When a pitcher has full command of his stuff, say like Greg Maddox, he will widen the plate. Especially if the catcher frames it right. Take that away and Maddox wouldn’t last long in the game and that is the shame. I liked Nolan Ryan, but he was more a thrower than a pitcher most of his career. Baseball would move to all throwers. It takes away from the game IMO. Human interaction is why I like sports. If a computer can call balls and strikes then why not pitch, catch, and hit. Heck why not just make it all cgi? It would be a lot cheaper and us old guys could still play.

As a boy, I remember Ryne Duran with the Yankees (my boyhood team).

He was a thrower...glasses an inch thick and terrible vision, a wild pitch every now and then into the back screen, and a 100 mph ball, all kept batters on their toes.

Don Gullett was that way for the Reds.

It doesn't surprise me that Michigan is as physical as Alabama in their game, but what Minnesota's offense is pushing Auburn around and I didn't see that coming.

Alabama shut Michigan down the second half...pulled away. 35-16.

I did not think that Michigan matched up that well...

Minnesota and Auburn was a good match...Minnesota by 7...

Michigan is all about how Patterson goes. If he is on, they do alright. If not they aren’t good. I can’t say I shed a tear when Bama pulled ahead.

Wisconsin is like Ohio State. Doing everything they can to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Georgia is doing their part in sending the B12 into the Stone Age.

Hopefully the ‘The Spread is Dead’........ and hopefully the Big XII realizes that and gets back to playing football, where defense and special teams and running the football matter, and thus the era of ‘Basketball on Grass’ will take its appropriate place in the ‘Graveyard of Innovative Gimmickry’ right beside the Wishbone. :wink:
