How in the heck did the on-field referee think it was a touchdown in the first place? From the ref's perspective, Coale's feet are way up in the air, half of his body lands completely out of bounds, and there's no way the ref could have seen the elbow that possibly would allow him to be considered in-bounds.
The whole thing wouldn't be less heated if he initially called what it looked like live - a nice diving catch that was out of bounds.

Nothing gets me more upset than that video of the kid, in tears, who had to move out of the dorms in August after working out all summer at LSU. These jerks, who make millions, couldn't be interviewed? Unbelievable cowardice.
And I still say no, ESPN still isn't really taking this seriously. Bob Ley gives Houston Nutt a pass on his comment about signing 80 kids by saying "oh, that quote was just a joke." Well, the joke isn't funny, Bob.

What was calm and centered about the last drive, which ended with a 3rd & 19 pass to nobody? I really don't see him making the offense work better - he scrambles out of his protection until he finds a random guy open. That's not running an offense, its completely unpredictable. Blocking for him has to be a nightmare, you never know where he's going to be.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Good thing I only count this as year 2||
2008 was a complete waste of time and shouldn't count against any artificial coach clock.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Oh, THAT Tony||
Yeah, in that case, I have no idea. ;)
I thought The Shield on FX wrapped things up pretty tightly:
|3 years 3 weeks ago||On Tony...||
From Wikipedia's account of Season 7:
"As the FBI arrests him, Tony curses Jack as a coward and a traitor, and is led away into FBI custody."
Curious - what else would you have liked to see? A courtroom proceeding? Characters on 24 go out in one of 3 ways - death, arrest, or safely disappear somehow (promotion, go off the grid, etc.)
Sometimes, characters are brought back from jail or safety (and in Tony's case, they are even brought back from death). If you never see them again, then you can assume they stayed safe, dead, or in jail and there's no story left for that character.

Chances are low
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Ernie Harwell?||
Did he ever make this leap? I know that towards the end of his career you could catch him making up the play - what you saw live was not the same as what he just said (of course, there's some wiggle room in radio for things like that, as long as you get the result right).
For the most part, though, I'd say he never became a caricature.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||I'll grant benefit of the doubt here||
Had Minor not been hurt the entire year, I think he could have done for the offense what Brandon Graham does for the D. It's a lot tougher to "lead" from the sidelines, at least in the manner that he's speaking here.
Look at Stafford yesterday - do a couple of insanely tough things on the field, and you've suddenly got your teammates wanting to work harder for you than ever. Minor didn't really get a chance to do that this year.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Although awesome...||
This one still doesn't top about 10 years ago when a couple of A-10 Thunderbolts rolled overhead. Just as loud, but they're slower so it took about twice as long to fly over, and the best part was that it wasn't announced ahead of time. Scared the pants off of so many people that they've ALWAYS done an official warning announcement since.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||There's a big difference||
Rodriguez was doing it with minutes left on the clock for the purpose of coaching his players through a realistic 2-minute drill, even if it doesn't determine the outcome. Dantonio was doing it with seconds left on the clock, just to be a jerk.
I guess that sounds like homerism, but whatever. I see a clear difference.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Oh, maybe you're right on that.||
I dunno anymore. Too depressed to think clearly.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||He didn't always blitz||
I distinctly remember dropping EIGHT into coverage on a 3rd and long early in the game, they still found a WR over the middle in front of the safeties.
It makes no difference at all what defensive play is called.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Future first round pick||
looked pretty silly on the touchdown over his head. Never even tried to locate the football. A Lions first round pick, perhaps.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Never played either...||
but I've got to think that's a bad thing. Both sides of the ball need to be out there working to help the other. The team, the team, the team, right?
|3 years 32 weeks ago||This.||
Came here to say exactly this.
Love watching "America's Funniest Home Videos", but reserve a special level of laughter for the groin-shot sequences. Ow!
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Would have thought that too, but...||
there's the case where Johann Franzen played an entire game of professional hockey on a torn ACL earlier this month.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Standing != fan||
I guess I'm a bad fan for sitting down so the 8 year old behind me could see a football game he was obviously excited to be at.
Standing up is fine sometimes, but pay attention to your surroundings and don't be "that guy."
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Want to try my card from 1995||
just so I can hear the guy say
"it's an older code, sir, but it checks out. I was about to clear them."
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Yup||
Figured out the error of my ways after looking up from the spreadsheet to think for a minute :)
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Retracted, I win at math but fail at football.||
If you get the first one, you don't have to go for two again.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||I suspect bad math||
Chance for me to look stupid here since stats class was a long time ago, but...
I think the emailer has bad multi-event stats going on. You have to multiply the success rate for a multi-event scenario.
0.44 * 0.44 = 19% to get both
It didn't pass the smell test that 2 wins is more likely than 2 losses when less than half of tries are successful. And I agree with Brian, chances of one play going right were probably worse than 44% under the conditions.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||You assume NW's class||
I'll never forget how snobby they were to us after winning for a second year in a row in 1996, as if they were suddenly the Big 10s finest and always would be.
(note to Sparty - even NW had beaten us 2 years in a row in recent memory. It's not that respectable).
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Of course not||
Players clearly prefer Bob Seger.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Also terrible...||
"We talked to him last night..."
"When we talked to him last week..."
"I was talking to Coach Rodriguez and he told me..."
Or any other variation on that theme. It's like they're rubbing it in that their job is to cover sports and a constant reminder that I don't get to do that.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Another music complaint||
If you watched the PSU - Iowa game, you'd have heard "7 Nation Army" playing a prominent role. Sounded like the whole 100,000+ crowd was singing that riff...and they were lead by the band.
Whoever's responsible for RAWK went way, way overboard this week and I'm with Brian - this HAS to be corrected.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Liked RAWK before they went all Wedding Mix||
Twist & Shout? Old Time Rock n Roll?
Next game I'm preparing for both the Chicken Dance and the Cha Cha Slide.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||This||
Saw that Saturday and was really excited about it. It seems genuine, and the system is so much better off for it.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Ugh - this one's even worse|
|3 years 38 weeks ago||Sure...||
It just seemed like an interesting case. Even today, media outlets like the Jim Rome show couldn't get over the fact that TOP was so lopsided and yet it didn't matter to the outcome.
