I don't mind losing, but I hate getting robbed!

Husker vs. the Hokies. it was terrible. easily the worst officiating I have ever seen. 28-23 with about 6 minutes remaining. it is 3rd and 2, and Hokies QB Tyrod Taylor is stopped short of the first down marker, meaning that VT will have to punt. that is, until Husker DT Ndamukong Suh is called for an unsportsmanlike conduct late hit out of bounds. A TERRIBLE CALL! Suh had already left his feet and dove at Taylor before Taylor had been pushed out of bounds! what, is he supposed to just stop in midair? anyways, Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini was furious and argued the call, and the refs decided to call a personal foul on him, giving the Hokies the ball within the 10 yard line. now i'm not saying that these ridiculous penalties would have given the huskers the win, but it would have kept the hokies as 28 points instead of 35...and with the way the huskers moved the ball against them late in the game, i dont know.

but thats not even where the terrible officiating ended. they called another unsportsmanlike on Suh after the extra point, and then spotted a ball in bounds and short of the first down line, even though our reciever was knocked out of bounds past the first down line. or when they randomly stopped the play clock to let the hokies run some more time off the clock with under a minute left in the game. or when the hokies punt bounced out of bounds at the 15 with 55 seconds left, but then bounced back in and the refs let the clock run down another 10 seconds and 5 yards...

just pure ridiculousness.

still, the huskers played like crap for the first 3 quarters, which has been a disturbing trend this season...

God is so Clearly a Husker Fan.

well, if there is a god, he is clearly a fan of husker football. it has been cold and rainy all week, but magically, yesterday, the skys cleared and it warmed up to be a beautiful day for some good old college football. and now today it is a cold and nasty again.

on a side note, the officiating at that game was some of the worst i've seen in a long time. the first half went by in about 5 minutes because the ref's didn't really ever call a single penalty. then, in the second half, they called far, far too many, most of them really bad (such as pass interference on a play where the defender got all ball and didn't even touch the reciever, or some notable no calls from the first half included a facemask i could see clearly from the student section and blown pass interference calls against both teams). the worst, however, was the last 5 minutes of the third quarter, when new mexico state was looking to finally score and end the shut out, the refs review what seemed like every other play. in actuality, it was just 3, but if i remember correctly none of them were overturned. it seemed to me as though they really didn't want to have a shut out, because everytime our defense made a big play, they either called a penalty or reviewed the play. honestly, there were about 25 plays IN THE REDZONE at the end of the quarter, and the husker defense just kept stopping them, despite the babying the other team was getting from the refs. oh, right, the one call that WAS overturned was the one where the huskers forced a fumble and recovered it. but ya, the last 5 minutes of the 3rd quarter lasted about 30-45 minutes in real time. absolutely ridiculous. and we were up 31-0 at that point, so it wasn't as if they needed to be extra super thorough like the game was on the line. it was over by that point, just needed to play the clock out.

oh well, the huskers looked pretty sharp last night, which was good, because they didn't at all against SJSU last weekend. looking forward to VA TECH in 2 weeks!

GO HUSKERS!
