That's a touchdown
Post Game Celebration/Late Games Open Thread
Even the announcers are conceding it was a touchdown
Man that's BS call. I really hope USC kicks ND in the throat.
Wow Stanford just got robbed of a chance to tie.
Refs wussed out because they feared the old men in the stands.
Another gift for a fraud Notre Dame team
Oh well, makes us look better I guess.
Son of a bitch!!!!! This is what Notre Dame was like under Holtz. Close games always going their way and helped by a questionable call.
Wooooooooooooooow. How they didn't call that a TD after review is beyond me.
THIS IS HORSESHIT! I HATE NOTRE DAME. NO OTHER TEAM IN THE COUNTRY WOULD GET SUCH A CRAP CALL. WHEN ARE THE OFFICIALS GETTING THEIR CHECKS FROM THE NOTRE DAME BOOSTERS!?
Like the Bush Push, right?
I like how you remembered to put your name in lowercase, with a tilde.
Man, I forgot how much I love a good defense. Now if we can just shut down Bell.
If they don't get the call correct?
Even if he fumbled, the Stanford guy clearly secured the ball in the end zone!
That rule doesn't apply in South Bend unless it helps out Notre Dame.
I am so mad I'm shaking about the ND game. They were GIVEN that game.
Quite the overreaction.
Big Game Bob is going to take Notre Dame to the woodshed in Norman.
I am piss drunk and I cannot believe that they scored TWICE on that final drive. complete. bullshit.
Stanford got a shafting from the refs on that last play. Complete bullshit!
Not sure why I flipped to ESPN, but I'm regretting it.
last week they put one of those smart mics on Holtz and it turned itself off. So ESPN isn't always all bad.
Oklahoma is going to kick the shit out the Irish.
Don't Stanford have a 6'8'' tight end. Come on coaches!
So I switch away from the god-awful Tom Hammonds and the NBC homers to ESPN...and there's Lou Holtz.
You can't win. You can't even break even.
Between the ND mafia and the OSU mafia (Herbie, Spielman, R. Smith, Galloway on the WWL and E. George on Fox...seriously, how the h*ll does OSU get so many people on TV?), it's almost impossible to watch college football analysis without feeling like throwing up.
Herbie is an OSU grad, but he is not anywhere near a homer and I will defend that tooth and nail. The dude moved out of Ohio because of the shit fans complaining about his anti-OSU picks, fergodsake!
The others, eh, they may or may not have received a degree from OSU. Either way, TV commentary is a better career than pizza delivery. You can't even criticize OSU as a pizza boy!
They're all communications majors down there.
I cry foul on the ND game! He was clearly in on the reach and the refs simply ignored it after the initial stop.
Yeah, because forward progress isn't a thing.
there wouldn't have been a review. The whistle would have stopped play.
Note also that the review allowed the call to stand, they did not confirm it. If the call had been forward progress there couldn't have been a situation where the ball was too close to the goal line to make a determination.
^ I don't think he's entirely helpful in determing what actually stops the play here, but he affirms that forward progress wasn't ruled, and then follows that up by saying the whistle blowing has no bearing on the play. If the whistle is blown how is progress not marked? How those are exclusive beats me.
Dude, are you closet ND fan or what?
Less of an ND "fan" more of a board goer who finds the extreme reactions to rivals' wins to be a bit ridiculous. We get it, you're not supposed to cheer for Michigan State or Notre Dame, but flooding the board with "These guys are frauds!" after games such as the Capital One Bowl earlier this year or Stanford today gets a bit old. It's silly if you can't just enjoy a good football game.
ND is 6-0***
***Given one game due to the refs
He rolled in, what the heck.... I never really cared for ND but I hate them now. I hope Oklahoma runs over them...
I guess replay official Tommy O'Flannagan didn't see it the way the replay showed.
Whatever. Notre Dame can still kiss my ass. Oklahoma and USC will pound them but those games aren't for a while. In the meantime, it will be constant national championship talk by the media for them led by Lou Holtz. Have your mute buttons ready.
...the OL did.
That's how I saw it.
Oklahoma already has done good this season by defeating Texas. They can extinguish another wrong this season.
Here's the one bad we can extract from today. WVA getting its ass kicked today only means Braxton has an easier chance to take the Heisman. At this rate, I'd still take Smith or Klein over Miller, but still, I might cry if Braxton Miller takes home the hardware.
When in Notre Dame's favor they use it to zoom in but when it is against them you never see it.
There are advantages to having your own network--of that there can be no doubt.
I don't think there is any chance that Braxton Miller, QB for OSU is going to win the Heisman this year. He's good, especially at running, but even with the loss Geno Smith's numbers will dwarf anything that Miller does.
and he hasn't played us yet
What I find interesting (frustrating) is that no one mentions that Miller almost lost that game against MSU with 3 TO's. OSU won but Miller did his d@mndest to try to lose that game with all of his miscues.
I guess as long as your team wins, it doesn't matter how many mistakes you make in a game.
ESPN College GameDay watch next week:
Kansas State v. WVU: would be surprised if they go here with the absolute trouncing in Lubbock.
South Carolina v. Florida: should be a CBS game, S. Car was featured last week.
Any other possibilities? Where will they go? If only MSU was halfway decent this year, would be pretty much a no brainer.
Gotta be Bama-Tennessee or SCar-Florida knowing those guys.
