The call on the field in OT was a touchdown. You have to have CONCLUSIVE evidence to overturn a call. There was NO WAY you can say that he did not catch that ball. Talk about bias.

It looked like a touchdown to me too

That's why I'm not much of a college football fan. The refs are worse. The coaching is worse. The players are worse. The music is worse. The pre-game show is worse. The way they decide the champion is worse.

If that UM kicker moved a split second early, isn't that a false start?

Even the Michigan coach said he thought it was good. See, this is why I've never liked college football. If the powers that be could have it their way, Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State would win the Championship every single year.

Not to mention some of the spots the refs give are just so casual (not related to this game).

+1000

They almost do anyway...and that is the scary part. Add a couple of more teams to your list like USC, and why play games?

This is why instant replay is so retarded. Big waste of time and they still goof it up. But it's called job security...overturning calls justifies my existance, so I'm always leaning toward doing it.

Michigan alumni must have some big checks... Was definitely a TD!

Ref said receiver didnt maintain control... that was a flat out lie!

I think its sad that a player in his biggest game, in overtime, game on the line, makes a great play and has some nimrod takes it away. If it is called on the field a catch, HOW in the world can you say without a doubt it was not. I was shocked they overturned that touchdown. I say this with no care to who won that game.
