    Wow. I didn't mean to open this can of worms.

    I was just that proud of our defense for stopping a fairly high powered offensive plan. I was also more upset that it keeps happening as opposed to the fact that it happened. When we lost to USC, I accepted it. When it happened again, I Was more miffed that we lost the shut out only.

    I will not whine about this anymore. Again my apologies.

    Not the same thing at all, not even close. This isn't whining about what-could-have been and claiming a loss was really a win: this is just a matter of taking pride in our tremendous defense that let up only a phantom score that had no bearing on the outcome whatsoever.

    Plus, PI is a very subjective call, as are many penalties, while whether the ball crossed the goal-line is less so and there's a good argument to be made that was not a TD. I doubt anybody's really lobbying the NCAA stat-geeks to count it as a zero, but I don't see the harm in the OSU D or its fans feeling like they shut-out the "high-powered" Penn State O.

    Let the PSU fans be the ones to quibble that they only lost 24-7.

    Since it wont go away easy....

    I just watched the replay again. If I am the replay official I absolutely do not overturn that call.

    Clark's original stretch did not cross the goal line. However, as he pulled the ball to his chest his body continued to move forward. At least part of his chest broke the plane but I could not see the ball and therefore could not say conclusively that the ball did not also break the plane. Nor do I know what the official based the TD call on.

    All that said, my apologies if any individual feels like I was calling them out. But I am hearing this "shutout" stuff from all angles and IMO it sounds a bit bush. Calling a game a shutout that isn't a shutout seems the same to me as calling a game a win that isn't a win. Whether they scored 7 or not takes nothing away from an incredible defensive performance.

    Yeah, I am 99% sure that the ball never crossed, but there was no available replay angle that could possibly overturn the call. That said, it is too bad that in a nationally televised game, there were not cameras on BOTH sides of the goal line.

    Which makes one wonder what the fuck the ref saw to declare it a TD...which is why Buckeye fans doubt if it was ever scored.

    Home field advantage I guess....plays tricks on the mind.

    The refs were probably too busy giggling to themselves still over the PI they called on Torrence.

    I can take the bad calls, the blown calls, and even the right calls that go against my team. But the ref laughing while he's calling the penalty really got under my skin.

    Gotta love Tress shrugging his shoulders and just going with the fans for a bit.

    buckeyes_rock Great day to be a Buckeye

    I'm not one to whine about bad calls...much...LOL. But after watching the replay, it seemed like the officials immediately signaled TD after Clarks initial stretch to the endzone. That was what seemed strange because the replay seemed pretty clear that he didn't get there on his initial push. So if he got in after that under the pile where the replay couldn't see it, then fine. But that didn't appear to be how the officials originally called it.

    That said, now that I've watched it a few times, I don't think there was conclusive evidence to overturn it. Just wondering why it was ruled a TD on the field in the first place.

    My last thought on the refs for the game is that I was relatively happy that they called a few timely holds on PSU. Granted, our guys appeared to be held all day, but the zebras called a few that really came at nice times. There, I actually said something positive about Big Ten officials. :biggrin: Didn't know I had it in me. :)

    Ttown WTH is an Illini? Dead goose?

    This was the best game I've seen out of the Buckeyes in a while.
    What a great job by everyone.
    :oh:

    CalvinistBuck I don't mind being called a liar when I am lying.

    Actually, tsun is that bad.

    Historically, the rest of the conference has often been mediocre. Since tOSU and tsun have typically dominated the B10 the last two generations, Coach Tressel's dominance of tsun has caused a dramatic turn of events.

    Big Two and the Little Eight? The B10 is now the "Big One" and the "little ten."

    And that's the way I like it.

    Penn State still has not beat us in consecutive games since they joined the conference. We've whipped their asses 37-17 and 24-7 our last two trips to Crappy Valley. Jim Tressel is 6-3 against Penn State. We're 11-6 against them in conference play.

    Fuck Penn State.

    Absolutely.

    There has been quite a bit of discussion about utilizing short passes in the 2009 tOSU Offense thread the past few weeks.

    One way to measure the future progress of TP will be to see how JT permits Pryor to expand his repertoire of short passes.
