FWIW the McCulloch call was NOT a questionable makeup call

    Despite what the TV announcers suggested, in this shot the OSU player appears to have his arm around his back and yanking on his jersey as McCulloch goes up for the ball. So unless I'm missing something pretty much all of the questionable calls broke against us. If the refs are going to call ticky tack crap at least call it the same way for both teams, which is why MacIntyre was so upset. The contact on the PI call on OSU's last TD looked pretty similar to what they didn't call when it happened to Spruce in the last drive.

    But, but, but ... the Buff cheerleaders obstructed the view of the play clock and that was a no-call.

    Blaming refs is a losers lament. The focus needs to be on sustaining the gritty play and winning the third quarter.

    It wasn't a makeup call. It was just another bad call. Problem is it was the only call or non call that went our way. (Prolly shouldn't include non calls. I'm sure we got away with one or two.)

    on thing pisses me off. The Pac will review, see the ref blew it, give him a bad mark or something, but we will never have the "satisfaction" of an apology or admission that they screwed up. We caint get no, SATISFACTION! That's what I say.

    I watched PACN's post-game show at the end of last night. They showed that play in their recap and talked about it as a phantom call that led to a CU touchdown. They didn't show the PI on the INT that cost the Buffs. PACN was definitely reacting to MacIntyre blasting the refs by making it look like OSU overcame a gift PI that directly led to points.

    The fact that the network is 100% controlled by the conference has it's negatives (that they never talk about). There aren't checks and balances, and the network can push the agenda of the conference. This is like a country that has state controlled television.

    That's the biggest concern. Can a conference network cover controversy well? BTN came under a lot of fire for not even mentioning the Sandusky Penn State scandal for over a week after the story had broken.

    This is one of those deals that gets "handled" behind the scenes. I'm sure RG has been on the phone this morning. Unfortunately, the fans don't have a "right to know" in all of this. They will never say anything publicly. However, Mac's fine will probably be made public. :sad2:

    Utah and Wazzu will also be complaining to the conference.
