LOL Bo, you are absolutely right. The pylon IS THE PLANE of the end zone. How does the ball touch the ground (OUT OF BOUNDS) and then hit the pylon only the replay moron knows. Replay is good for the game and bad call get made. 

But it shouldn't have been that close to begin with. Penn State played like shit and they lost. Good for the Indiana players.
I agree it was a bad call. The ball did indeed hit the ground before the pylon

Nose of the ball crossed the plane before the ass of the ball touched out of bounds.

So youíre claiming the ball actually crossed the goal line in bounds, came backwards as to avoid clipping the corner of the pylon before hitting the flat face of the pylon despite all momentum traveling the opposite direction. Yea no.

No. You are ignoring the sideways momentum.

Sideways momentum?

Making stuff up? Sideways is not backwards. You can't change the laws of physics just because you thought up a goofy term. LOL

Replay showed the nose of the ball over the goal line. Argue all the "physics" you want, Captain Dunning-Kreuger, the officials, who unlike you had no skin in the issue, looked at those replays and upheld the call.  Because that is what the replays showed.

It showed no such thing. I don't "need" to argue physics. Physics speaks for itself. It isn't courtroom hocus pocus bait and switch.

They upheld the call because they "apparently" couldn't be sure. That's their excuse and they are sticking to it. A convenient out that the replay rules supply for them.

So... the refs who unlike you are independent, not partisan and rigorously trained in the use and interpretation of video replays, deliberately decided to award the game to IU because... reasons!

Looking for normalcy, or some semblance of the old normal.

Eventual 2020-21 National Champion Michigan State 27, Meatchicken 21

We cannot possibly turn the ball over 7 times again. Can we?* I had Minnesota on my ďover rated based on last year and it is not last year anymoreĒ list, so the Meatís domination of them was not a total surprise. I though Lombardi played reasonably well, though I still expect the Day to come, and soon, when he is replaced. It is really hard to get a handle on how good (or bad) MSU is because the turnovers hide offensive function and give the defense short fields to defend. We outgained Rutgers, for whatever that is worth. (I also did not see the game) By now, you guys should know that I am taking Michigan State in this game if we were running out an 8th grade flag football team.

the 35, the Pennsylvania State University 13

The PSU game, on the other hand, I did see. Granted, PSU dominated the stat line against IU, but they still did not play that well. I donít think the IUD is impenetrable, and PSUís failure to penetrate it makes my less than confident about their ability to score much against the. I just see too much of their offense as serviceable. As for the, I do worry that they lack the type of stellar running back that has powered all of their best teams. Teague just doesnít have the vision to be that guy. Still, I think they have a big talent edge, on both sides of the ball.

Hard to believe this is the only game between ranked opponents this week. I am not sure that there are even any interesting games, or even close ones, so most of the games are chalk here.

Texas 27, Oklahoma State 26

Probably the second best game of the day. OSU has a pretty good defense, but I am disappointed in their offense. Texas is not that good; I felt they had some good things ahead with Hermann, but that is not the way it is panning out. I expect the Pure Prairie League to wind up a morass of two and three loss teams. 

Indiana 23, Rutgers 7

Congratulations Rutgers on your first Big However Many win in three year.  But MSU is not going to com fumbling through that door.

ClemSIN 55, Boston College 10

I have seen nothing of BC that makes me think that they can stand up against ClemSIN much beyond the opening kickoff. Maybe ClemSIN takes its foot off the gas late, but I donít think so. Unlesss of course Lawrence tests positive for.COVID, in which case ClemSIN might only win by 20.

Oklahoma 24, Texas Tech 17

I suppose if there is a top 25 upset on the board, this would be it. Oklahoma has been way on the underside of whelming this year, and I think their being ranked at this point is more muscle memory than anything else.

Kansas State 17, West Virginia 16

Oddly, I have seen a bit of Morgantown School of Applied Technology this year. And while I tend to use Pure Prairie League games as background for naps anyway, they have been an unexciting team. Not that KSU is eye popping. This whole league is mediocre.

Memphis 35, Cincinnati 30

Luke Fickell will regret not taking that MSU job. Maybe not today but someday, soon, and for the rest of his life. Iíll go with Memphisís offensive power over the lightly tested Cinci D.

Our Lady of the Perpetual Tie 37, Georgia Tech 13

I donít think OLotPT is all that good, but they are better than Georgia Tech.

Georgia 27, Kentucky 14

Again, a crappy slate of games. I am not impressed with Georgia offensively to date.

Wisconsin COVID-19, Nebraska 0

Boy, Nebraska keeps screaming about the effect COVID has had on their season, donít they. They should consider themselves lucky for not playing Wisky.

PAWCP comes back next week, praise be.

 

* Yes. Yes we can.

Lawrence out for at least one week with a positive COVOD test.

Good grief!  Do I have to explain again that the Zoom lense on these TV cameras distort the depth
perception so much that you have no idea where the tip of the football (hidden by the rest of the ball) was before the ball hit the ground and pylon!

IMHO, the  replay official upheld the call because he could not with any certainty say the tip of the ball did not touch the plane (I disagree with the rule as written and the fact that the runner lost control of the ball, in my thinking, would result in a fumble out of bounds, but that's another battle).  If the official on the field had ruled no conversion, the replay official would have gone along with that call (although, being on the Hoosier home turf....)

the official was in the right position and place to make a good call, his depth perception was not distorted by his eyeballs  zooming in, the runner was a good distance from the sideline so this official looked to be locked in on the extended ball which the runner was stretching out two strides away.....therefore, I would say the call was most likely correct and the ruling on the field was correctly upheld.

If another video surfaces with a better look.....

I also think the Lion defender could have taken a better angle to the ball carrier and knock the ball into the empty cheap seats.
Harry pointed all that out  and in a lot fewer words.
What was the most significant part of the play was Michael Penix, a left handed QB, switching the ball to his right hand before diving for the goal line. The only chance he had to score

My bad - Notre Dame game next Saturday.  I'd expect Trevor to be in there.  But Clemson talks a good game re:  safety, dont they?
