Let me preface this by saying I didn't watch the game, because the BCS can eat a bag of dicks. I don't know whether Auburn would have scored anyway, or won in OT. But to have this kind of inconsistent officiating, in a game played 5 weeks after the season is over, is disgraceful.

This is beyond stupid. His hand was flat, palm down. In the first instance the runners hand that was around the ball hit the ground, palm up.

I didn't see that you started a thread about it. Here is what I wrote in the other thread.

I guess you would have to define exactly where the wrist is. In the Ark example, it was the back of the hand/ wrist that was down. In the Auburn example, it was the palm that was down and could be considered just the hand. With the palm down, it's hard to have the wrist down, too, without having the forearm come down unless the hand is rocked back, which it wasn't.


BTW, I'm not sure the safety wasn't a worse call as it seemed like James got the ball out at the last second. However, Oregon lined up off-sides all night long and it was never called, so screw 'em.

The rulebook doesn't specify that it has to be the hand with the ball to be down. Nor does it distinguish flat hand from curled.

Brace yourself up with your palm down and tell me if your wrist is touching the ground. Then roll over with your palm up, holding a football, and tell me if your wrist hits the ground.

The ball has to be ENTIRELY over the endzone line - not just part of the ball. That was an easy call.

1. It was the right call. Every time I've seen the wrist ruled down it's been the hand carrying the ball with the back of the wrist touching. Not the palm face down and maybe the inside part of the wrist.

2. Players are taught to play through the whistle. At no point did a ref signal the play dead or blow a whistle.

3. If you think that single instance is what lost the game for Oregon or that the (correct) result meant they got jobbed, then your and idiot.

Oregon runs a gimmicky offense just like Nebraska & Missouri . Its a great big play offense till you get down in a goal line situation. & then just like Nebraska & Missouri. you cant get the last few yards to score the TD. ZONE READ IS A JOKE & if the PAC-10 had any D the Glowducks would never have went threw that conference undefeated

Oregon really just screwed themselves by not capitalizing on the times they were in the red zone. They could/should have won by two scores or more but got stupid/cute.

Could, but not should. Remember, Auburn had several miscues as well at the goal line and missed a couple of wide open TDs.

That video is really quite stupid.

The Arkansas back put the back of his hand and his wrist down (the hand was holding the ball, folded upwards at the wrist and the wrist touched).

The Dyer, OTOH, put his palm flat on the ground. His knees/ankles never touched and the whistle didn't blow. He clearly wasn't down.

At best, your argument is that the Arkansas play should've been ruled a TD. But under no reasonable reading of the rules can you argue that Dyer was down - he wasn't. And Oregon didn't play through the whistle.

I hate the SEC, I can't stand Chizek or Auburn. I'd love to see the title stripped because of Newton going forward. At the same time, there's just no other way to call that play - the man wasn't down.

The ankle picture is close.

But in either event, there's most assuredly not enough to overturn it. As the official said "the ruling on the field stands." They didn't confirm it, just said that it stood.

Ultimately, I think it's about 75% likely that the officials got it correct outright. I'm also damn sure that there's no way they should have overturned it.

I think they should have called him down...

Even if he wasn't "technically" down...I hate how they basically sucked the life out of a potential "all-time" ending to a National Championship game.

Calling him down would have been the right call...he was tackled...a fluke positioning made it a "close call" when it should've just been called down...every single player on the field (even the runner himself) thought he was down...lets say he gets up there and drops the ball and an Oregon guy picks it up...what do they do then? I bet they call him down...

IF they called him down...Auburn would still have had the ball...would still have been in great position...and the ending would have been more justified and memorable.

That said...Auburn was clearly the superior team and a dumbass conservative approach was the only reason Oregon LUCKILY tied up the game at the end...

They kept punting, and punting, and punting, and fucking up...and Auburn refused to take advantage of it even though they moved the ball at will every time they went hurry up and didn't play so damn conservatively.

look I don't give a shit about college football...

but when a guy is "tackled" and everyone including the guy tackled stops...the play should be dead...

Auburn got lucky that someone yelled at him to keep running and it ended up winning them the big game...

Oregon got unlucky the guy didn't just drop the ball (because he thought he was down) so they could have gotten lucky and picked it up on the fluke play...

Either way...when everyone stops playing...the play should be dead...and it ended up ruining (slightly) the integrity of the game...

Either way Auburn deserved to win, they were the better team, and the game totally disappointed to me and didn't live up to the hype...I need to stop wasting time on any college flukeball game...it's B O R I N G.

As a very, very casual fan I thought it was a shame to see the game end because a guy got tackled on another player...everyone stopped (including the guy tackled)...and then a few fans and coaches realized the whistle never blew so the guy ran and picked up 40 more yards...

I'm sorry if I think that's a disappointing ending to a disappointing game where the only chance of thing being salvaged was for an all-time ending where one play ended up sucking the life out of the whole game.

Like I said...

If he gets up and drops the ball and walks back towards the huddle the refs would have blown the whistle right away to avoid any confusion...guaranteed.

But instead the ref played hero and now he gets patted on the back for such a great call...

Even though it is a totally confusing call that benefits the offense because, like someone just mentioned, had someone came up and drilled the fuck out of the runner (had he not been moving) it probably would have ended up in being a penalty since the play was dead...

I mean...I don't even care...

Consider me salty because I watched a game from start to finish for the first time all year (college football blows) and it didn't come close to living up to the hype, both high power offenses sucked ball sack and weren't interesting at all (OMG ANOTHER BUBBLE SCREEN), and then when it finally got interesting the game ended because of a fluke play that, REGARDLESS OF WHAT HAPPENED, should have probably been called dead (REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT HE WAS DOWN)...

I wish common sense could be used in some of this shit...just like the Calvin Johnson "drop" to start the NFL this season. He may have dropped it, and the runner in this game may not have been down...but both should have been called differently.

BCS title game most-watched cable broadcast ever

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) Monday's BCS title game was the most-watched cable broadcast ever.

ESPN's Tostitos BCS National Championship, which pit the victorious Auburn Tigers against the Oregon Ducks, drew 27.3 million viewers.

A "Monday Night Football" game between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings on October 5, 2009 was the previous high, which drew 21.8 million.

The Tigers-Ducks game posted an ESPN record 17.8 fast national rating, according to Nielsen. This would make it the highest in the history of cable TV, with records going back to 2001.

ESPN's "Monday Night Football" telecast of the New England Patriots-New Orleans Saints game on November 30, 2009 was the previous cable high at 14.4.

The 16.1 overnight metered market rating beat the BCS National Championship games in 2005 (14.6), which aired on ABC, and 2008 (15.6), broadcast on Fox.

This year was the first the BCS title game was broadcast on cable. ESPN will continue airing the title game through 2014.

The Auburn-Oregon matchup drew big audiences in their regions, respectively: Birmingham, Alabama (67.0) and Portland, Oregon (37.5).

Touche.


I was disappointed that the run sucked the energy out of what could have been an epic finish, but what happened was correct.


It's similar to a married man getting hot and heavy with smoking hot chick only to stop everything and leave. It may not have been a fantastic ending but it was the right thing to do.

I wasn't disappointed in it at all. Was happy it wasn't that high scoring of a game and that they both played well on defense. It became dramatic to the end. Damn good game!

Sorry for you

Not sorry for me

to each their own I guess

I'm a sucker for offense and that's what I wanted to see...

I thought I was going to see two hurry up, badass offenses...instead I saw two hesitant bubble screen offenses who were boring as hell to watch...

and then when it finally was about to get good a fluke play ended the game...

oh well

really?

so if the dude got up and dropped the ball you'd be ok with it being a fumble?

Okay with it? No, I would say the guy shouldn't stop play until the whistle blows. My observation, though, was more about your frothing at the mouth fervor for this topic. You're cracking me up.

That call was BULL.

It ruined the game.

The defender had him then let him go.

What the F**K do you want- a guy to ram the F%^$$ER from behind to completely tear his head off into the ground?

The rule is being abused by offensive players just like the sidelines are being abused.

Is there anything worse than "abusing the sideline?":hmmm:

The problem is that you have two offenses that rely on getting into a rythm, with about 5 weeks off before they played this game.

Add the fact that Oregon has a fast athletic defense that matched up well with Cam Newton's athletic ability and you had a formula for an offensive letdown.

It's really stupid to play the biggest game of the year so long after the end of teh season.

Yeah ok,but Oregon ****ed themselves by turning the ball over instead of scoring TD's.

no no, that was the Chiefs.

Buddy sent me a picture of the Oregon trophy case today. Looks as good as ever!

I guess that big yellow zero in there is appropriate. LMAO
