It seems like all season this year the refs have been even worse than normal, such as in the ASU vs Wisconsin game earlier this year. This past week in college football saw three game changing calls go to official review, and on all three, there was not evidence to overturn the call on the field. Which call was the worst by the refs?
Was it the fumble by Texas vs Iowa State that would've clinched the game for the Cyclones?
Was it the questionable spot by the refs in the 4th and 1 for Northwestern that would have kept their drive alive vs OSU?
(Sorry, Youtube is a blocked site at my office so I am unable to embed anything other than pics or gifs here, so here's a sad Kain Colter instead)
Or was it the trap/catch in the Washington vs Stanford game that potentially gave Stanford the win when this was ruled no catch? (again couldn't find this in gif form, only picture).
For my vote, I'm going with the Iowa State vs Texas one as the worst blown call of the week, and I think Iowa State's coach agrees with me given his explosion at the refs Thursday night in his press conference. But I think the Northwestern vs OSU one was also pretty awful, and had to be heartbreaking for those in attendance. I know that I was screaming at the TV on that one.
What do you guys think?
Also, if anyone can embed the videos for #2 and #3 here, I'd appreciate it! I would if youtube weren't blocked at my office.
