Not another word about SEC referees

You hear me, Big Ten people? Not a damn word about any SEC conspiracies.

That Iowa-Indiana game was the ugliest thing I've ever seen. Questionable calls went to Iowa. A touchdown for Indiana was reversed on replays that never came close to showing enough proof to reverse the call on the field.

I'm saying it: I firmly believe those Big Ten referees, whether on their own or at the behest of the league, did what they had to do to keep the Big Ten's only BCS title candidate undefeated. And given how bad Iowa was for 3 1/2 quarters, they had to do a lot.

If you're a Top 25 voter and you don't vote Iowa down -- as in, worse than last week -- after this game, then you didn't watch the game. Or you didn't know what you were watching.

Doyel got this clearly and completely correct.  Indiana should have been up by at least 24 going into the fourth quarter, and the refs were the only thing that stopped them.  Calls that should have been overturned weren't,  A call that shouldn't have been overturned was.  A phantom pass interference penalty against Indiana.  I expect these refs to be suspended.  Bob Davies stated on air that each of the missed calls was obvious and only began saying they might be close when the refs decided them wrong.  As for the Hawkeyes making the title game, give me a break.

Wow.  You're dumber than I thought you were...and that's hard to believe because I thought you were one of the stupidest sports writers ever to be given a job.  You have never watched an Iowa game in your life and then you write crap like this.  Had you actually watched the game, you would also have known that Indiana was holding and committing offensive pass interference for three quarters.  They finally started calling the stuff in the fourth quarter.  Idiot.

A perfect example of CBS incompetence.  During the halftime of the Gator game, they were showing highlights from earlier games.  The CBS announcer actually said that one of Indiana's touchdowns was taken away when the refs decided that he didn't have two feet in bounds.  What a bunch of idiots, don't even know the rules of college of football well enough to lie to their audience.  It only takes one foot in college football.  The refs took the TD away because he was still bobbling the ball when he got his one foot down.  But all the SEC lovers who only watched that replay (yourself included) said, "See they were cheating." 

How do you still have a job? 
What a freaking moron.

Gotta agree with you on this one Gregg.  I thought the same thing. The Big Ten has its share of biased refs too.

The game was the worse called game by the officials including those on the field as well as the reviewer. Indiana players  had to be totally defeated and wondered what was going on. It became obvious to me after Indiana had totally beat Iowa , that there seem to be a way that the game had to be changed and the officials changed it blantantly and as if they were on Iowa's payroll. The Big Ten should be ashamed of itself and like the SEC suspend the entire crew from officiating any future games. It reminded me of the Buffalo Wings commercial where the patrons asked the official to keep the game going. If the Big Ten doesn't review this stink, it will forever be questionable. I am not an Indiana r Iowa fan, but a football fan who believes games should be won by the players not the officials.

Actually I 100% agree here. It was so obvious word came down from the top to keep iowa in the game at that point . That was disgusting to watch and was a disgrace to college football.

A touchdown for Indiana was reversed on replays that never came close to showing enough proof to reverse the call on the field.Did you not see the ball after he hit the ground.When he draged his foot and hit the ground the ball moved from his chest down to his stomach,that movement was when he was outofbounds.As i recall to have complete possession you have to have control of the ball as you come to the ground. When he hit the ground, the ball movedfrom his chest down to his stomach and waist, as the back view replay will show.If you watched and Notre Dame games this year it is like when the M.floyyd td was called back against Mich because when he caught it and hit the ground it moved just like it did for the Ind player in the iowa game.Sorry if this was posted on anther name friend forgot to sign out with his name.
