    Will they punish the refs for the CU-Cal game for aiding and abetting manslaughter?

    Déjà vu second time in four years the refs help a conference favorite. remember OU vs. OU in 2006

    Virginia over USC would not have been one helluva stunner. I think SC loses the majority of their conference games this year.

    Well, the biggest fiasco of the weekend was still the NFL's refusal to give the TD catch to Detroit. Take two steps, slide down on one's butt with the ball held clearly in your hand, then put the ball down to stand up and LOSE IT, then that's called a no-catch?!! That's still SO unbelievable. Players need to do like Emmitt Smith - never release any ball ever. Never give it up to a ref. Keep it, each time. And hope by the time you trot to the sidelines and put the ball away, it's not called a fumble!

    I agree it was a touchdown, but I also agree with your last four sentences. Ultimately, it is Megatron's fault it wasn't called a TD. He clearly had possession of the ball, but he chose to hit the ball on the ground to stand up. Never give the refs a chance to make that call.

    so what happens now if a player rumbles through the pile at the one, the ball breaks the plane of the goal line by two feet and then the ball gets knocked out of his hands? is that a fumble?

    go watch the replay of the Holmes TD catch from the Super bowl, he traps the ball AFTER he gets both feet down.

    I don't know, tante. I don't get to make those decisions. We all thought calls were going to get easier with replay, but it seems there is still a ton of disparity. Who knows how it will get handled.

    I've appreciated the player's attitude was "Fine, so steal our game and I'll take the blame - but EVERYONE ELSE knows it was a TD." Heck, Detroit's so used to losing that one game doesn't make any difference.

    And this excellent supposition of slapping the ball out of the hand "after it crosses the goal line" - that seems NOW like the NFL will sanction pulling any TD off the board if it's slapped away. Within 2 seconds? 10? 4 minutes? No idea about the time line - the NFL is beggin' for problems on this.

    Y'know, in that Oregon-OU game that the refs 'stole' from OU... well, that REALLY WAS The Sooner Player's fault. He got the ball, raced out of the dogpile (albeit excitedly) and NEVER showed the ball until he was on the sideline. The refs are all still thinking it's on the ground. When he shows up with the ball, they see it FROM the sideline - they HAD to guess it was a throw-in replacement - not The Game Ball. I mean - those refs were JUST TERRIBLE and so wrong. But the player screwed his own team over mostly - he was so busy prissin' and prancin' that he forgot the game wasn't Only About Him.

    Typically I'd cry foul on this, but as U$C doesn't go bowling this year they don't get the payday by helping them into a good game in January.
