OK lets get one thing straight. Ohio State lost their game against USC FAIR AND SQUARE. Nothing that happened would have changed that fact. That game did make one thing clear though.
THE PAC-10 IS BECOMING A DISGRACE WITH THEIR OFFICIALS. IT IS A JOKE. THEY CAN NO LONGER HAVE ANY MORE PATIENCE WITH THIS. IT IS GETTING TO BE A DISGRACE TO COLLEGE FOOTBALL.
This was apparent last week when their was a more-than questionable call when Washington QB Jake Locker was charged with a celebration call after an AMAZING run to tie the game against number 18 BYU. The question is WHY they would call that when they are letting those calls go EVERY OTHER TIME. It was clear that Locker was NOT trying to disgrace the BYU team or show off in any way. He was showing EMOTION, which is the very thing we love about college football THE MOST! These officials are starting to take the very heart of college football out of it. Football is an emotional game, and it should be played with emotion and passion, which is exactly what Locker was doing. That was one BAD call.
Next came the Huge Ohio state-USC game. The Buckeyes were in the red-zone and two plays in a row they were called back on holding calls. One play brought them to the 3 yard line and the other was a touchdown. BOTH CALLED BACK. Im sorry, but I think that in football you could probably call a holding on EVERY PLAY. It didn't help that on the next USC series Mark Sanchez was able to convert on 3rd and 9 BECAUSE the USC tackle was CLEARLY holding Ohio State DE Lawrence Wilson from getting to the quarterback. IT WAS AS CLEAR AS DAYLIGHT. And you know what! NO CALL WAS MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was a major disgrace to the PAC-10.
I am going to say it right now. THE PAC-10 REFEREES HAVE NO CLASS AND ARE A JOKE. THEY ARE A DISGRACE TO THEIR CONFERENCE. IT HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH.
But, as I said before, this game was not made by the refs. I am NOT taking anything away from USC. They are a great team and had a great win against an equally talented Ohio State team. Congratulations to USC. See you in January.
