Speaking of poor officiating, apparently if you play for Michigan, you don't need to have any feet in bounds for a catch to stand, and you can just get more time added to the clock if the coach asks the refs.

F UM.  Even in a good Penn State year, soemthing goes wrong.

ND should have won as well...helping the runner is illegal and a 10 yard penalty.  it should have been called. When the offense committs a foul on the last play of the game the down is not replayed and the results of the play nullified. I don't think the official on the wing gave the stop the clock wave when the ball went out of bounds.  Those crews are going to get awful evaluations.

He prolly would have made it without the push.

ND would have won if they wouldnt have given up a 61 yard play on 4th and 9.

ND would have won if Matt Leinart wasnt a cold blooded assassin.  Or if Bush wasnt a reincarnation of Marshal Faulk or OJ Simpson

USC could probably beat some bad NFL teams.  But Chad Henne is no cold-blooded assasin.  UM got 20 free yards and 2 extra seconds.  When PSU plays on January 1st and Michgan accepts its invitation to the Motor City Bowl, then I'll be smiling again.

I'm not denying the stellar performance of USC or Bush and Leinart...but Reggie Bush admitted to using all of his 200 pounds helping Leinart getting over the goal line.  So the fact remains the white hat missed that call just as the wing man missed stopping the clock.  that crew is doomed.

Yeah, they missed a couple of calls earlier that might have changed the game like the phantom personal foul that they called on SC and the personal foul that they didnt call on ND that same play.

the UM/PSU crew is also gonna take some hits.  Two more seasons and I am going to apply to NCAA.  they will sometimes use PF when they don't know what else to call...

just for the record.... from SIOC last year...

Best College Football Weekends
Maybe there's a better all-around college sports town -- we said as much last year -- but on any given Saturday in the fall, we know where we want to be: Knoxville

Think your school's game-day experience is all that and a bag of chips? Universities like to carry the one definitive aspect of their programs around like a trump card. But Tennessee sees whatever your school is bringing to the table and bets the House That General Neyland Built that it's got you beat.

What's the competition holding? Washington shows its floating tailgate off Puget Sound only to have Tennessee match it with the Volunteer Navy. Next up is Georgia and its famous bulldog, Uga. Sorry. Compared with Smokey, Tennessee's unflappable bluetick coonhound, Uga looks as clichéd as a poker-playing bulldog.

Michigan and Ohio State put up the Big House (2003 average attendance: 110,918) and the pregame dotting of the i, respectively. Tennessee, however, responds with its own six-digit crowds ('03 average: 105,038), which detonate as the Vols run through the fabled T before the game.

The challengers keep coming: Auburn's Tiger Walk, Nebraska's Sea of Red and West Virginia's Country Roads. Tennessee answers: Vol Walk, Orange Nation, Rocky Top. And don't forget the fabled checkerboard end zone. King the Vols.
1. TENNESSEE

Total Score: 54

ATMOSPHERE: 10. There's plenty of local color, with the Fanta-flavored scene much like the line in Rocky Top: "Wild as a mink but sweet as soda pop." STUDENT SECTION: 8. Cargo-pocket roulette is a common method for sneaking Tennessee Mash into Orange Nation. GOD, COUNTRY, FOOTBALL: 10. Vols fans are notoriously loyal and will pay any price for a ticket. Good thing cops look the other way when it comes to scalping. GIPPER FACTOR: 8. Tennessee leads the nation in wins since 1926, when General Neyland took over. Phillip Fulmer has the highest winning percentage among active I-A coaches. IN-GAME TRADITIONS: 8. Pregame, the Pride of the Southland Band forms the T through which Smokey and the players run. After big wins the quarterback often will conduct the band. EXTRACURRICULARS: 10. "Lookin' for a moonshine still?" as Rocky Top asks. Then you must have a pregame Volguarita at Calhoun's while overlooking the Volunteer Navy on the banks of the Tennessee. But don't miss out on Vol Walk, when players strut down Peyton Manning Pass to the stadium.
