  • Big Ten: Officials Made Correct Call On Controversial Final Touchdown During Nebraska vs. Michigan State

    first_imgA Nebraska player makes a catch near the endzone.nebraska michigan state endingThe Big Ten has seen its share of ridiculous plays this season, and one controversial call played a large part in Nebraska’s dramatic upset of Michigan State. On what proved to be the decisive touchdown, officials ruled that wide receiver Brandon Reilly was forced out of bounds by a Spartans defender. He recovered to establish himself back in-bounds and make the touchdown catch. Wow. It doesn’t look like he was forced out of bounds at all… Play was reviewed but it stands. pic.twitter.com/z7QzqKZFKS— Dr. Saturday (@YahooDrSaturday) November 8, 2015Officials reviewed the play and upheld the decision, despite it looking very questionable that Reilly was forced out. Some expected a Duke-Miami-esque statement from the Big Ten on Sunday, but instead the conference ruled that the correct decision was made. From ESPN:“Per NCAA rules, the instant replay crew cannot review the severity of contact, as that is a judgment call handled by the officials on the field,” the Big Ten said in a statement to ESPN.com. “If the player went out of bounds without contact, he may not return to the field to make the catch unless it has been touched first by an opponent. The instant replay crew did confirm contact between the players, that the wide receiver reestablished himself in the field of play and completed the catch. After the replay review, the referee announced that the play stands as called on the field. The intent of instant replay is not to review all judgment calls.”Michigan State took home a wild win against Michigan earlier in the year, and lost one almost as dramatically in Lincoln on Saturday. That’s the way the ball bounces in this sport.[ESPN]last_img read more

  • Video: Cam Newton Is Getting Crushed For Sulking, Walking Out Of Press Conference

    first_imgCam Newton is unhappy during press conference.Cam NewtonThe people who don’t like Cam Newton have more fuel to add to that hate fire. The Carolina Panthers’ quarterback is currently getting crushed on social media for the way he handled himself after his team’s loss to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. At his post-game press conference, Newton sullenly sat for roughly three minutes, barely answered any questions and then got up and left. Here’s video of his exit. Panthers Cam Newton barely answered questions and here he exits pic.twitter.com/eNMDpv2sQH— Cam Inman (@CamInman) February 8, 2016And here’s some of the reaction. Cam’s presser was weak. If you’re going to celebrate when you win, you’ve got to face the music when you lose.— Jim Rome (@jimrome) February 8, 2016I’m a Cam fan. Tonight’s outcome doesn’t change how incredible he is, was this season. But how he handled the presser was most disappointing— Chris Fedor (@ChrisFedor) February 8, 2016BTW…I love Cam…great player, but wish he would’ve handled that press session better than that— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) February 8, 2016It’s fair to call Cam a front runner now. Dude lives it up when things go well, turns into a whiny brat when they don’t.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) February 8, 2016So disappointing. I get that he’s in pain. I’m not a Cam hater, but he has to be a better leader & professional. https://t.co/emFpcziUjW— Jerry Brewer (@JerryBrewer) February 8, 2016Just when I start liking Cam, he goes back to pouting and a walk off at the press conference. Stardom is a two way street.— Hunter Mahan (@HunterMahan) February 8, 2016Hardest thing to do after a “big game” loss is speak to the media (yes I know I had to a lot) but what was that Cam Newton?! #MVP #SB50— Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman) February 8, 2016I see college freshmen and sophomores handle themselves better annually after losing in the Final Four than Cam Newton just did. Ooooof.— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) February 8, 2016Obviously, it’s understandable that Newton is disappointed, but the criticism of him is (mostly) fair here. He could’ve acted better.last_img read more
