Wife after the pick-6: "Oh crap..."
We both gave up watching before halftime.

Did anyone else notice that the clock administrator was running the clock when it shouldn't have been? I'm watching the replay now and numerous times the clock continued to run when the player went out of bounds. Also, on an incomplete passes. The most obvious times were at the end of the first half and end of the game. College hasn't gone to clock stopping only inside 2:00 of each half yet have they? Who knows if that would have changed the outcome, but it just makes you wonder if something fishy was going on.
Hey everyone....sorry I missed the game thread last night - I was at a friend's house watching the debacle.
What a game, huh?
We stunk it up pretty good.
No excuses - we were out performed in both coaching and execution.
The only 'plus' was seeing Coach Strong get a very well-deserved win.
Our team has a long long way to go, obviously.
Sorry to let you down last night.
This isn't how an 11-2 season should end. Very embarrassing.
Actually, I just double checked the new rule. The clock starts on the referees signal. So the clock operator was doing the right thing. I'm still puzzled over the delays though. Why didn't the ref keep the clock running?
