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.
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.
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.
