U$C* won their bowl game against Boston College last night with the help of two questionable calls by the refs that were big enough to change the outcome of the game. First, U$C*'s Damian Williams clearly caught a 38-yard pass out of bounds. After watching the replay, even the announcers declared that he clearly was out of bounds (and this is after listening to them fawn over the U$C* program all game long). The refs declared it a completion, setting up a U$C* touchdown.
Then in the second half, a BC punt hits a Toejam in the toejam and BC recovers deep in U$C* territory. The refs call it U$C* ball and then review it. Meanwhile I'm thinking, they're taking a long time to review this because they're trying to figure out a way to call this for U$C*, scouring the rulebook for some loophole. Sure enough, the refs say the U$C* player was blocked into the ball... EVEN THOUGH HE WAS BEING PUSHED AWAY FROM THE BALL. The announcers were incredulous on this one too.
One call resulted in a U$C* touchdown, and the other would have placed BC deep in scoring position. Enough to change the game.
With a history of game-breaking calls going for U$C* over the decades, this really makes you wonder exactly who is on U$C*'s payroll.
