Amateur, er Incompetent MW replay officials. WTF ?

Recommended Posts

I've heard lots of complaints about them, but overturning SDSU Jesse Matthews TD catch makes the Big Sky look competent compared to the WAC,   Mountain Worst. The ball never touched the ground. The on field officials rule a catch and even the broadcasters said it was clearly a catch. My 8 & 9 year old grandkids can clearly see it was a catch.

I know that overturned call was not the difference in the game, but, what if it was ?

Anybody else concur or have other evidence of their D3 capabilities ?

 

The phucking MW officiating and replay crews are a joke.

We got blatantly hosed (6 points removed that shouldn't) yet so did Wyo & Nevada as did San Joser.

First game for the refs- still better than the old WAC refs and still better than the Pac 12 (see true worst) refs.

The curse of Chad Bunn lives on...

I think some of the decisions are so close and difficult to tell on video, that the reviewers side with the officials call. I cite two on Saturday I disagreed with:

1) Boise State-USU. On a punt the returner appeared to touch the ball as it slightly changed direction as it hit his hand. The reviewer didn’t see it that way and went with the field officials call as not a fumble. It cost Boise State a TD as they recovered the ball in the end zone. 

2) PennState-Indiana. On the last play of the game the officials ruled the QB diving for the corner of the end zone was a touchdown, but on the video it showed the back of the ball hit the ground out of bounds an instant before the front of the ball hit the pylon. That call was the difference between winning and losing. I’m sure Penn State fans were livid. 

Both calls were extremely close and the reviewer sided with the field official both times. It does show how close some of these calls are on the field of play and how it’s sometimes difficult to make the right call by the field officials.

He so clearly touched it. The trajectory of the ball definitely changed, the velcro strap on his glove even came undone, and his reaction immediately let everyone know that he knew he touched it. It was so obvious even his mom knew right away.

His moms comment was priceless.

How did San Jose get hosed?  AFA scored two touchdowns that were not called.  The Refs told Calhoun they were being reviewed - and they never were.  Then on SJSU's scoring drive, their receiver trapped a ball on the ground to keep the drive going - no review.  Lastly, AFA scores a two point conversion that was reversed despite the only camera angle being from the back of the endzone and you couldn't see the ball.  SMH.  We deserved the loss regardless, but man, it was amateur hour

Doesn't matter if it hit the ground before it hit the pylon if it crossed the plane of the goal line before it hits the pylon or hits out of bounds. It appeared to just cross it before hitting out of bounds. It was close.

It looks like it unstrapped his left glove. 

The Indiana one - I'm not sure I've ever seen a game with so close a call to end it.  I could still go either way.

This thread confirms my fears.

MW leadership and officiating are incompetent.

Without question his glove strap comes undone when the ball hits it. It was shocking when they didn't overturn that

Still looking for video, but a pass was called incomplete on the field during the Wyo/Nev game. Contested catch right at the goal line. There was some doubt as to whether it was an interception for Wyo or a TD for Nevada, as both players had possession near the goal line. Wyoming's CB clearly came away with the ball, though, leading most to believe it was an interception (there was also pretty clear PI that didn't get called). The ball never hit the ground, which we all saw from multiple angles. The call after review? Incomplete. The only clearly wrong call.

EDIT:

Found it (Thanks 7220 Sports!)

The lead official in UNLV-SDSU was so incompetent and had a southern drawl so thick he must be an SEC reject.

Good luck to any of you guys who get that white capped fool for your game.

Question... don’t the Pac12 and the MWC share the same pool of officials? Don’t they just rotate from game to game, regardless of conference?

I know they do in basketball, not sure about football. I assume each league has its own officials because in OOC play the opposing league usually furnishes the officials for road games.

One of my buddies is a Pac-12 ref and he doesn't do any MW games. So I assume that's true of all of them
