How often do official reviews actually go in Michigan's favor? 20% of the time? It's unreal how often they go against us even when the video evidence suggests otherwise.

Well, we got the phantom Minor pylon touchdown this year. I think it is fair to say the officiating in general sucks, and every team is getting its share of atrocious calls.
Refs hate Donovan Warren
there is nothing truer.
I am shocked that not only is the officiating so bad this year that they miss the call; they then look at the replay and proceed to miss the call again. They have the benefit of hindsight and choose to ignore it. This is the equivalent of dating a completely psychotic girl who burns everything you own and repeatedly calls your current girlfriend to tell her how lousy in bed you are, and you get the option through some rift in time to be able to decide to redo the decision of dating the psycho and you choose to date her again because for whatever reason her psychosis was "inconclusive" to you. UGHHHHHH!!!!!
Yeah, but she did that thing with her tongue...
Yeah, we got the Minor TD (although someone here looked up the rule and said it was in fact a good call), but we got jobbed at ND with Mathews's "non-catch," here with Warren (and last week), and I think there was one other really bad one this season I can't remember.
The big problem is the idea that the call on the field is the default call and that the burden of "indisputable" proof falls on the replay to overturn it. Why should the call on the field get the benefit of the doubt? Why not - crazy idea here - decide to go with whatever it looks like on replay?
was Warren's called back pick 6 at NW last week.
Somebody looked up the Minor call and said it was good, BUT...
...they misinterpreted it. Minor's TD catch against MSU should have ruled incomplete. We got lucky on that one.
What's up with that Cissoko fumble? Was he down? To me he was down and those fuckers never even looked at it! Maybe I was looking at it as a fan and not rationally. not to mention Warren's pick that was called wrong. That was a 14 point swing on two bad calls. Would it matter? Eh...probably not with a quadriplegic at QB.
