We Report, You Decide
The Big 12 has completed its review of the officiating in Saturday's Texas-Texas Tech game and neither league officials or Red Raider athletic director Gerald Myers had much to say regarding the findings. On Monday, Texas Tech send a videotape of 18 calls, no-calls or rulings that it disputed in a 35-31 loss to the Longhorns in Lubbock. Now one fan has taken it upon himself to break down the game film and detail several of the calls in question. Joe of the fine site Irish Round Table alerted us to these videos, and neither he or the Wiz have a dog in this fight. But the combined 14 minutes of video detail some iffy calls. And just to be fair, there no doubt were instances of Texas Tech players getting by with shenanigans in the game. Also take note that we didn't hear any complaints from the Red Raiders last Nov. 19 when they benefited from several controversial calls in a 23-21 victory over Oklahoma. Texas Tech officials even used the final controversial play of that game in a promotional campaign. Nonetheless, the hardcore fans in our audience will want to take a look at what happened Saturday in Lubbock. Video one (it takes a few seconds to get rolling) is above this post and the second video is below.
