All three refs caught witnessing the theft should have already been fired today. Like politicians, they will likely never have to be held accountable for their actions.
I didn’t watch the game. What was the bad call?
Looked like a good Football play to me! Timing is everything!
I bleed maize and blue, I was born and raised on Michigan football and my son-in-law attends UofM, but even my husband, son-in-law and I agreed that the first down call that clearly wasn’t was a horrible call, and as we said after the HORRIBLE hit and fumble, “The ball don’t lie!!”
That was an excellent hit!
Had a Big Ten fan today try and tell me that Clowney led with his head and should have been ejected. I froze the video at point of impact. Textbook. Clowney’s head was up. Face mask buried in the runners chest. Arms locked up. Helmet never got above the pads of the rb.
The first down call was an abomination. The subsequent hit by Clowney was a helmet planted right on the UofM ballcarrier’s chin. I don’t think anyone would have held onto the ball after that hit.
That had to be one of the best hits/defensive plays I’ve ever seen!
Sadly, had it been the NFL, the guy probably would have been fined and suspended for a game or two.
And if the first call was bad (it appeared to be bad), why wasn't the helmet to helmet hit they're crowing about even worse? Last I heard that's a huge penalty.
As a lifelong Buckeye fan & grad, that was a nommy treat.
One of the worst calls we ever saw...followed by wonderful smackdown. The only thing better would have been if that michigan Charlie Weis Wannabe choked on a sideline ham sammich and took Michael Moore down with him.
Anyone who has ever watched SEC football knows that Spurrier encourages brutal hits on opposing teams. Football is a rough game.. but how many times has SC (and Florida before them) eeked out a game after an opposing team QB, RB, or WR gets injured?
