    Dee Millners Pick that wasn't

    Does anyone have a pic of it? I was traveling at the time and didnt get to see it or any reviews. He said he got his arm under it.

    It hit the ground. Just like the third and long that Georgia caught a break on in the 1st quarter.

    It more than likely did hit the ground, but to me, the refs were unwilling to overturn a call unless it was totally conclusive evidence until that play, and then overturned a play where there was doubt. No view clearly showed the ball hit the ground, nor did any view clearly show Milliner get his arm under the ball, as I recall.

    Good call. DM should have caught it, but it went through his hands.

    Dee Millners Pick that wasn't

    One of the few right calls all night long and it took them forever to figure that out.

    I respectfully disagree. His right arm was under the ball.

    Then you watched a different game or was too inebriated to see. One of the angles clearly showed it hit the ground.

    Did the ball hit the ground of did he use the ground to complete the catch? The ball can touch the ground

    yeah, i thought the rule was the ground had to effect the ball. oh well, game is over and we won. kudos to our d for getting the stop after that emotional roller coaster of thinking we won the game then having to go back out and defend

    you must have control before it touches the ground. In this case he had his hands on either side of the ball, the ball touched the ground and it moved as you could see from a side angle. Incomplete per the college rule.
