Colorado's Rocky Mountain Low

Here is the end of Saturday's controversial Colorado-Iowa State game in Ames. Colorado trailed, 31-28, and kicker Kevin Eberhart made a 50-yard field goal as time expired.

Or so the Buffaloes thought.

Officials ruled the snap by Justin Drescher with one second remaining came before the ball was set for play. Colorado — out of timeouts — was penalized five yards for delay of game. This is where the video picks up (language warning).

Eberhart makes the 55-yarder only to have officials rule that the Buffaloes did not get the snap off in time, ending the game.

The Big 12 said the officials got this one right and Colorado's Dan Hawkins didn't have much to say, but he is getting roasted for a fourth-down gamble early in the second half with his team leading, 21-0.

Thanks again for that gamble Coach Hawk. Yet another wonderful season without a bowl bid. I think it's time to hire coach Mac back!
