OU Got Jobbed

Normally, I would be one of the last people on the planet to stick up for OU, but what happened to them on Saturday should go down as some of the worst calls in the history of college football. And not only was it just one call, there were 3 horrible calls in the span of 1 minute, and two of them were held up by instant replay!

  1. On the onside kick, an Oregon player clearly touches the ball before it crosses the 10 yard line.
  2. Oklahoma recovers the onside kick when the ball squirts out of the pile.
  3. Two plays later an OU defensive lineman tipped a pass, but an OU defensive back was still somehow called for pass interference.

The first two were reviewed by instant replay, and what was their decision? Oregon ball. Seriously, I have no idea what these refs could be thinking. And unlike OU’s game against Texas Tech last year, OU really got screwed on this one.

    I’m about 98% sure Oregon touched the ball before it went 10 yards but I guess I can see how they determined it wasn’t “conclusive.” I think a little better camera anglewould’ve made it pretty clear.

    Of course that doesn’t matter since Oregon recovered the damn thing. Though I do blame Allen Patrick (#23) of the Sooners a little for not making it clear to the refs he had the football. He should’ve been screaming, “Hey look over here ref I’ve got the football!!!” Instead he goes walking calmly the other direction.

    I’m 100% sure the ref didn’t catch the TD pass. I’m 100% sure the ref didn’t miss the block on firld goal attempt. I’m 100% sure the ref didn’t block the field goal. I’m 100% sure that the dirt burglars didn’t play “D” and lost the game. Bunch of cheatin cry babies! I’m 100% sure that the employees at Big Red Sports thought they were cheated out of pay too! Ya think?
