    Well as a ND fan when I say Oklahoma got jobbed you can believe it because I have no ties to either team. Those refs need more then a suspension. Someone needs to make sure they were not paid off. Yes, I may be over reacting. Still, if that had been my team getting the short end of the stick I would be ranting about it for awhile. =)

    I am happy that Oklahoma lost but the calls were BS. I am happy they were able to do something about it.

    Officials get a lot of slack because half of the players and coaches are happy about the call and half are pissed. If I did that bad on my job then I would be fired, which I think should happen more often.

    Espn is reporting (10pm sports center) that the replay official is getting death threats and is up set beyond all condolences. He is also the one that recieved the lightest punishment. My knee jerk is that to nullify any inference of any impropriaty,at all, et. el. ...they were bought, the feild officials should be suspended for the year. The replay official who seems to be a really good guy...should never be allowed to work another NCAA game again. Ever. Yes Dorthy it was that egregious. They may have not been bought. But barring auditing them, we'll never really know. To miss that many calls over such a short period of time, they're either bought or grossly incompitent. Both are damming for the pac ten.

    Its a shame. Oklahoma straight up got the game stolen from them. I agree the ref's weren't punished hard enough, and I also think there should be an investigation as to whether or not the officials were doing something innappropriate.

    I really wanted OU to stay in the top 10 for two reasons. 1) It helps Texas' strength of schedule. And 2) I love nothing more than demoralizing them when during the Red River Shootout. I want those Okies to know what its like to spend all 4 years in college and never beat Texas, like some of my friends had to endure here.

    I couldn't believe what I saw, that was terrible.. I can't believe they didn't overturn the call. It's sad to see that Oklahoma gets a loss for that. I think they refs should have gotten more than 1 game though.
