this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
OT- Bad refs
But that doesn't mean the OP is wrong. This is just terrible officiating in all aspects of the game.
True, but in the game today the bad refs have really screwed with our Offense. The two 1st half TD's for BGSU wouldn't be such a big deal with we had the 35 pts on the board we should have.
This is true as well...but me being a high school ref, i notice the officiating a little closer than most....these guys really suck.
If you're a HS ref (I am as well), you should know that these refs are actually damn good at their jobs. Are they having a great day? Maybe not, but they are a B10 crew for a reason - you don't get there by sitting on your ass and watching TV.
The white hat is being sloppy for some reason, but I can only point to one blown call (the "below the waist" chop block).
They've nailed the goalline plays and the PIs. It just looks worse because the R is being terribly sloppy.
What were your thoughts on the defenseless player call? Although it's going to be speculation since we never saw it, I don't see how a lineman hitting a player before the whistle can be a penalty. Unless it was a block in the back, but that wouldn't be an illegal block in the back call.
That's the thing, we didn't see it and ESPN's awesome producers didn't show us a replay. Molk could have hit a guy in the back and the end of the play that was just standing there. For all we know it was a legit call.
From my experience, if you're going to call that it's probably pretty obvious, so I'd give the refs the benefit of the doubt on that one.
Im at the game...trust me the hat's not the only one having a bad day.
Thats mainly what i was refering too...im sure these guys are better than me...butthey arent having the best of days
Gotchya. I get a little defensive with people criticizing refs because they don't realize how much work goes into it and they don't always get the nice clear view that video replays and big HD tvs give us at home.
Then again, when I'm at Crisler I don't think twice about yelling at Ed Hightower, so who am I to talk?
Its all good
We have gotten poor refs every game this year. The other team is able to hold us every play and never get called for it. I'm getting tired of incapable refs. We're fine regardless but jesus dick these crews are terrible.
I hate doing this, but yes... there was a hold on that screen pass for a touchdown. Don't remember which one of our players was held, but it was blatantly obvious.
EDIT: By the way, this thread is not off topic :)
Rogers was getting held that play.
Hitting a defensless player. If he is on the field, he is fair game as long as its not in the back or near the helmet. If he is on the field, nock the shit out of him, he should be prepared...this is a battlefield!
how is a defensive player defenseless?
Uhhh...we might have some of those. Too soon?
Suck it up and play (and hopefully tackle!)
Bad calls do happen.....
but a nice trend of awful calls have developed throughout this game......i do not like trends when relating to bad officiating.
Are you playing Yahoo or CBS' ref fantasy league? I got the Temple/Penn St. crew. C'mon calls.
lulz I have the best, I am starting the OSU-Boise refs.. You know all the calls are going to go for Boise.
I got a yahoo team and an espn one...started the same crew in both damn it.
Amen to this brother.
Obviously, Junior F'ed up by dropping that beautifully thrown bomb by Gardner, but didn't the BG defender commit pretty blatant PI as he was falling down? I was VERY surprised that nothing was called on that play.
Poor Devin...Junior drops an easy TD and on the same drive Molk commits a personal foul to wipe away a 2nd great TD pass. Devin has looked very good throwing the ball and surprisingly "meh" running it.
Only time the refs called holding was when we got a sack.
How could they not review BG's first TD? I couldn't believe that. What did they think we called a timeout for?
I feel that the refs this year have been terrible...
