Re: College Football 2012

Hell of a final few minutes. LSU's play calling/clock management on their final drive made no sense whatsoever. And that 4th and 16 was a miracle.

I go to a couple of conferences in Clemson every year as part of a professional group I'm involved with. It's not affiliated with the school, but we stay at a hotel on campus while there. I really wish I was there this week for one. I could get myself into all sorts of trouble tonight...

Re: College Football 2012

The South Carolina/Michigan game was a lot of fun. I've never seen a ref botch a measurement call before. I thought the Ol' Ball Coach was going to have stroke. Instant karma struck on the next play when Michigan fumbled it.

Then the Gamecocks pull it out with 11 seconds to go.

Good game.

Kentucky is always awful, though. Can't have all good teams.

Re: College Football 2012

So, has anyone else ever seen a "one point safety" before? I've been following college football since I was 8 years old, and I have never even heard of that.

Ducks are kicking ass. Go Pac 12!

I'm so, so happy that Louisville took apart the overbearing, obnoxious, entitled Gators.

I was happy with that.

Nice to see Louisville win, and they definitely earned it. No fluke win here.

I'd never actually seen one, but I knew it existed. Brad Nessler (interestingly enough) was the PxP announcer the last time it happened, as he mentioned on tonight's broadcast. I think its only happened like 4 times in the history of college football.

Ron Cherry, the official tonight, is also the referee responsible for this famous call:

Re: College Football 2012

^ That's classic.

My fraternity brothers and I quoted that call for years.

Re: College Football 2012

This Ron Cherry guy might be my favorite official in College Football. It seems like whenever he is reffing, the entire rulebook has to be used, with the unusual calls and all. He actually did a decent job explaining both the 1-point safety (Loved the "Unusual ruling" bit) and what that clip showed. Too funny.
