I don't know, I think Geno Smith has a better shot.
how's new mexico doing. Still sucking ass?
Yeah they suck, but they look a little better than they have in the 3 seasons prior to this. They beat Southern and New Mexico State, and lost to Texas and Texas Tech. They're losing to Boise State right now. They're still not that good, but at least they're showing a lot of improvement and have a better coach.
Well, South Carolina or Georgia are going to end up in the top 3 after today.
The Northwestern Wildcats lost to the Penn State Child Molesters. This is a very sad day.
Man what a great Saturday for CFB.
Wow, Stanford got hosed. The RB wasn't down and the ball was clearly over the line.
Assuming he did get over the line -- and I'd argue it wasn't conclusive upon review -- he didn't have control and the whistle blew. It's hard to claim you were jobbed when you run the same play for three straight downs and can't get a yard out of it.
He lost the ball after it crossed the line. If they blew the whistle before it crossed the play wouldn't have been reviewable. At least that's what the commentators said.
No it doesn't excuse a bad call, if in fact there were a bad call. I'm just pointing out how tiresome it is to hear "screw job!" -- as if some great moral injustice was done -- when a team has put themselves in the position of asking the referees to bail themselves out of their situation in the first place.
Have the blogs and Twitter been blowing up, arguing this a bad call? I'm far from objective, obviously, but this didn't even seem like a marginal call to me. I watched that video half a dozen times and I didn't see anything conclusive to justify overturning the call, even without the benefit of having the whistle synced up.
EDIT* Obviously a team could do a better job so a ref doesn't have the power to decide a game. I just think a bad call is a bad call (not talking about this game specifically, just sports in general).

Ha! Fair enough, Gribbz, though I will confess I thought ND fans who lost their minds over the Bush Push play were missing the point.
Northwestern is now 6-1.
