Anyone get a good view of the holding call on our last drive?

    I didn't have a good view of it from my seat.

    My opinion is that you don't make the call in that situation unless it's a blatant hold (grabbing a guy on the outside of his jersey and pulling him off the play). Was that the case on this one? Also, who did they throw the flag on?

    The flag was on Miller, and it was called after Speedy was about 5 yards downfield. He kind of reached out and got an arm on either side of the DE. Technically probably a good holding call, but also probably a call that could be made about 15 times in any given game.

    It was a hold, and it was Miller. I'm biased, so I might have swallowed the whistle there considering the situation, but it was a hold.

    EDIT - and Junction beats me to it and with a much better answer.

    Thanks, guys.

    How about the pass interference they got Henderson for?

    You don't have to turn for the ball in college like you have to in the NFL. But you can't run into the receiver before the ball gets there. Was that a good call? I couldn't tell if they went ticky tack on good college coverage or if he interfered.

    It was on Miller and he had his hands on the shoulder pads. Definitely a call where they could've easily overlooked it as I'm not sure how much it impacted the play. Speedy was already blowing by them and on his way to the end zone.

    Henderson never turned for the ball, and that probably made the call inevitable. But whether he made contact before the ball arrived was much less clear to me.

    The bad part of that call was when they tried to rule it was a catch by Cal. Ray Polk caught the ball on the deflection.... :lol:

    In that case, I'd say it was a bad call then. Henderson was in great position and the WR tried to jump over him and try to catch the ball. I thought it was a legit call because refs always call it on DBs if they don't turn their head, but if that's not supposed to occur in college, then that was a dumb call.

    Looked very ticky tacky and looked like he didn't touch him until the Cal wide out had touched the ball.

    There's no rule against face guarding in college football. It's only a penalty if contact is made with an eligible receiver while the ball is in the air. Unless they changed it for this year, but I didn't see anything.

    as bad of a call as the roughing the passer on the double pass... how is the qb not a running back on a double pass... it was a lateral... if the qb gets blown up on an option pitch... its not roughing the passer... and if it was roughing the passer then it would also be an illegal forward pass on the cal guy for throwing it across the field

    Chiming in, Miller held.

    Henderson call - 50/50. Touch call either way.
