    I did to! LOL! Also, the hit sounded like a car crashing into another car. That will be the leading candidate for hit of the year in 2013. It's going to take a vicious hit to top that.

    The one the Stanford safety put on the Wisconsin WR has to be up there too.

    Yep. Used his shoulder also vice his head/helmet. Very clean hard hit the way it should be done.

    That was an amazing hit and it sounded more like a movie sound effect than an actual noise. Brutal.

    As fun as it is to watch CLowney play, it would be much more fun had he signed with Bama....

    It was a lousy spot to start with. Shouldn't have been close enough to even need a measurement. And yes, the guy was wrong about what the rule is. No way that should happen ever. I've seen that happen from from pee wee flag football to the NFL. It wasn't a first down.

    Re: retrobution really did work!

    It seems I have seen nfl games where the measurement is to close to call and the ref pulled an index looking card from his pocket to slide it between the football and the stick to see if the nose is touching the area of the stick. Seems unbelievable, but clowney rectified the situation. I thought the ole ball coach blew a gasket.

    PS That play reminded me of Biscuits' hit on Berlein (sp?). Looked it up on you tube afterward.

    That call eclipses the Preston Gothard call as the worst of all time. In my opinion there is simply no way that guy was not either suffering some sort of mental breakdown or was absolutely paid off. Someone should do a background check or a medical check on that guy, or both.

    It's my understanding that only the location of the spot is reviewable, the ref actually haveing a mental breakdown or being dyslexic and not understanding the nose of the ball has to touch or exceed the bar to be a first down is not reviewable. Perhaps their needs to be a catch all "ref has lost his mind" review.

    You are correct. The booth review was of the spot not the measurement.

    Incredibly bad call. Without a doubt, one of the worst I have ever seen...especially since the booth agreed with the ref on the field. I hope the officials in the BCS Championship Game are much better than those in the South Carolina/Michigan game.
