IAST couldnt get out of their own way.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Just throw it right off the dude's facemask. Great option.
Texas will still lose to Oklahoma by 50.
Texas gets lucky, wins.
With the Akron game, I'm not sure if those were Big Ten officials or not, but we did get some fortunate calls to run the clock/not run the clock at the end of that game.
Texas just got bailed out by Big12 refs in a Big12 game. No wonder Nebraska, Mizzou and A&M left - it's all about Texas in the Big12.
On a differnt note, I'm pretty sure I jinxed UCLA as going 3 - 0 tonight would just be way too good a start to week 6.
I think we should invite ISU to the Big Tennnnnn because they would fit right in!
Nice win by Texas. Didn't know they started incorporating black and white stripes into their road unis.
That last Texas drive was a freaking disaster by the officials. 2 Pis (one very legit), one blatant hold (ironically on the last PI, Left DE got off the OT and gets spun around right in front of McCoy), one missed fumble, and one fumble where the nose of the ball breaks the plane and then get's recovered by UT, meaning it should be a touchback...
Iowa State outgained Texas by a considerable margin, but 10 penalties for 118 total yards - 2 of them very painful PI calls - were part of the reason that this did not go the way of the Cyclones. Also, Big 12 officiating is apparently done while wearing welding goggles.
As Hinton rightly pointed out:
That said, Texas is basically terrible. Not in the tank tonight. Played its ass off and needed a ton of breaks to beat Iowa State by one.

It's pretty hard to argue with that truth.
How about this: This is what Michigan might have looked like had Lloyd Carr stayed on one more season into 2008...
That's very magnanimous, which I admire. But let's not forget the name GERG originated at Syracuse. Homeboy has a resume. No es bueno...
Are you really defending Greg Robinson while simultaneously calling our current staff "pathetic"? You're going to break the internet
It's alway's someone else's fault, eh? By my standard, both people that took over for GERG did better than he did with the same Jimmys and Joes. Scott Shafer and Greg Mattison. But, hey lets make excuses for him and not hold him accountable for his most recent performances. Brady Hoke took over tire fires at three programs and turned them all around. Jim Harbaugh did it. Pete Caroll did it. Charlie Strong. The list goes on. Good coaches can do that. Did I mention Scott Shafer?
35 years is a long time. GERG may have been a viable coordinator once upon a time but it is no longer that time. If you want him, you can have him.
thanks to Greg the mastermind
'Maybe the refs hate Texas enough
To save Mack’s job for another week.'
Texas will still get pummeled by Oklahoma by 40+ for the 3rd straight year. That will be what costs Mack Brown.
If Mack is smart, will announce that he is going retire at the end of this season.
dude in an eastern eagles hat got face time on the nfl game.
Watching UCLA - Utah on Fox 1.
I can't stand the way Fox covers College Football . . . as a way to kill time until the NFL is on.
They prop up NFL has-been announcers, they talk about CFB players predominately in terms of where they'll go in the draft, they spend the half-time break pimping non-CFB sports, they even recycle the NFL theme music.
If you are going to cover College Football, then cover College Football. If you'd rather be doing something else, then get the hell out.
ESPN can be annoying, but I can watch a full day of College Football covereage and not once feel like it's just a warm up for the NFL. They genuinely appreciate CFB and cover it on its own merits. It's not just a "platform" to pimp the other stuff they really care about.
I unfortunately have to watch a lot of the Pac-12 games on Fox. Everthing about tha network is just plain garish. Remember, these are the people who thought it would be a good idea to broadcast hockey games with a superimposed spotlight on the puck and low-res lightning bolts appearing when shots were taken.
At least they have Gus Johnson.
+1 for bringing up the glowing puck. Blue streak for wrist shots, and red for slap shots!
I can't believe Fox hired Petros Papadakis. I have the game muted right now because he is so annoying.
The Utah Defense is better than I thought. UCLA's is good too, though, so they just need to avoid stupid errors for me and I'll be at peace.
I bet that opening game in 2015 at Utah will be on FS1
Also, that will be a tough game for us, they'll be all jacked up for us, we better come ready to play that game.
so much for avoiding stoopid errors...
does UCLA struggling here with Utah mean that Utah is way better than Nebraska?
All I know is that Utah's defense is much better.
Obviously Nebraska has its issues, but Utah might just be pretty damn good. UCLA has a +3 TOM...and they're winning by a FG. But, points off turnovers is 3 - 7 (I think), advantage Utah. So, UCLA's pick was devastating (obviously).
Transitive property might deceive us here. It's possible that Utah and UCLA are both legit and Nebraska is, well, not.
Go. Sorry Ill Eagle, but I've got a degree from Utah.
No apologies necessary. This was a soft play, goes with the territory. I underrated the Utes, gotta pay tuition to learn things, you know?
Of course, that whole Gardner-style pick 6 didn't help but....eh whattayagonnado?
Wow. That was a terrible pass.
clutch INT setting up a potential push...do that isht, 17.
Hundley is the west coast Devin Gardner.
Of course you are.
Kraken sure knows how to make this isht interesting, don't he?
Come on Utah, need a td. Help Michigan in the polls.
I better rethink this account. At this rate -- win, lose, or draw -- I will single-handedly win The Tears of Unfathomable Sadness every week. No doubt about it. I don't even love those hoes! Sho luv dat money do...
Whatever. 3 - 0. Tomorrow never dies.
