Watched the game and thought poor call from the Refs. The rule they couldn't come back on the field with only 8 seconds I've never known. I thought he broke the plane and scored. Took guts to make call in Detroit. So much for home field advantage calls...

 

Yeah, BUT don't forget now days all NFL play reviews are done in that place known as "The Big Apple"!

 

And so, how "gutsy" would it have been for some damn "New Yawkah" to MAKE that **** call when HE was 618 miles away, HUH?!

 

Yeah, you guessed it. I just now looked up the distance between those to cities on the internet.

 

(...I mean, c'mon now...it wasn't as if THAT blind fool, whoever he was, was gonna get pelted with cups of beer and other assorted objects and debris as HE walked off the field, RIGHT?!)

Absolutely! After watching the reply at least half a dozen times myself, I saw nothing "conclusive" enough on those replays in order for the review officials to overturn the call on the field!

Midwestan's college football analysis is more concise and spot-on than some of the stuff on TV.

 

Thanks for the kind words ChristineHoard!  To think that 20+ years of sports broadcasting at my dinky local radio station has validated me as a TCM Message Board poster!!  :D

A lot of flap here today about that last Lion's touchdown being called back.

 

I gotta tell ya, it looked good to ME, but then, I don't really get into much NFL anymore, and if it's in the rules, then so be it. 

 

Too bad though.

 

 

Sepiatone

 

Yeah, that was a tough break for the Lions.  Ten years ago or so, before video reviews, that might have counted as 6 points.  Then again, everyone on Monday sports talk shows would be blathering on about how the Falcons got ripped off!

I bet.  Even though I live in Georgia and I generally root for the Falcons, the Bears are my home-grown team so I root for them despite much heartbreak.  They actually won a game today!  Anyway, that Lions play was close but not enough to overturn.

Saturday was a little unusual in that, 10 of the Top 25 teams were playing on the road against unranked opponents.  Utah played at Arizona on Friday night.  How did they do?

 

Alabama--easy win over previously unbeaten Vanderbilt.

Oklahoma--won at Baylor, but needed a strong 4th quarter to make the score lopsided.

USC---got a stiff test in Berkeley, but eventually wore down California.

Penn State---touchdown on the last play averted an upset to Iowa.

Michigan---used a strong second half defense to turn aside Purdue.

Washington---slow start turned into a blowout win against Colorado.

Florida---edged unbeaten Kentucky by 1 (insane 30-year win streak against the Wildcats).

Auburn---crushed hapless Missouri.

Utah---held off Arizona to win a close game.

San Diego State---Aztecs survived a 90-minute lightning delay to win at Air Force.

Oregon---lost a tough one to Arizona State.

 

So, they went 10-1.  Looks like these teams could be major players in their conferences or respective conference divisions by the end of November.   So too could Georgia (hammered Mississippi State at home), TCU (impressive win at Oklahoma State), Clemson (big 4th quarter propels their win over Boston College), Notre Dame (nice win at Michigan State), Ohio State (expected big win over UNLV and got it), Virginia Tech (blew out Old Dominion), South Florida (walloped defending AAC champs Temple).  and UCF (eye-popping dominance on the road against an improved Maryland squad).

 

Disappointments:  Florida State---injury-plagued and hurricane weary, but lost at home to NC State.  UCLA---thanks to its non-existent defense, got crushed by Stanford.  Arkansas---lost to Texas A & M and is sub-.500 on the year.  Bret Bielema left Wisconsin for this?  Boise State---lost at home to Virginia, a team that Indiana raked over the coals in Charlottesville last week!   Maryland---opened the year with impressive win at Texas.  Three weeks later...get battered at home by Central Florida!  Tennessee---what to make of the Vols?  Two close wins (Georgia Tech & Massachusetts), one close loss (at Florida), and one blowout win (vs. Indiana State).

What a game that Penn State-Iowa game was last night!

 

(...I had a feeling Iowa after scoring their final TD had left a little too much time on the clock to allow for Penn State's final winning drive)
