SBC has reprimanded the replay official for the call made on the fumble by T. Pearson in the UNT game. The call on the field was a fumble that hit the pylon and the ball was given back to UNT on the 20 yard line.
After further review by the conference office, the ball did not hit the pylon but rolled out of bounds at the 1 yard line. It should have been the Jags ball on the 1 yard line and 1st and goal. Had South scored and converted the PAT, they would have been down by three and still in the 3rd quarter.
This is what the replay rule was put in for, to stop such atrocious calls from happening. Officials have been reprimanded but that is not enough. This was a blown call that was easy to over turn and should have been.
What a game changer of a call! It totally changed the outcome of the game to me.
It really did. You do things a lot differently with a full quarter remaining if score is 24-21 versus 24-14.
They were reprimanded, suspended, and removed from consideration for postseason games.

Man this really sucks. I guess there's not much more you can do, but damn.
Seems like you could really get away with some stuff if one were so inclined, if you know what I mean.
Today I’ll take any kind of passion. Just care! Complain, moan, groan, or call for somebody’s head. CARE !! - OJ
I think they should be executed and their houses burned down. And, their wrists should be slapped.
Definitely not what I meant
Maybe they should just be forced to attend every Georgia St game for a year.
I thought my punishment was bad...
IIRC (and I might be mistaken; there WAS a pitcher all to myself involved), we were all at Montego's moaning and groaning about the "no replay available" situation the UNT pay-per-view failed to offer us...
I just KNEW something didn't look right about that play and that call! Da bastichiz!!!!

Am I wrong but reading the article, it states that the ball goes out on the 1 yard line and does not hit the pylon. How was the call on the field confirmed? It almost seems like for the replay official to get this wrong he has to be cheating. I wonder if this possibility was addressed.

That . . . is exactly what I meant.
How can it have clearly NOT hit the pylon, when the initial call was that it did, and was then confirmed?
The replay official was obviously using the camera angle from the Pay-per-view feed to make his call. I think most of us didn't even realize there was a fumble until the ball was placed at the 20. Because from that angle you couldn't see a thing. Can a team request an official to not be allowed to work their games? If so I hope the league office phone was blown up today.
IT'S OUR TIME! GO JAGS!!
Pretty sure that they have access to all of the different camera angles available. Which would make the confirmed call even more ridiculous. The play happened on the other side of the field from us, so unfortunately we didn't get a good look. I think they showed one replay immediately after the play, but no more once it was announced that the play was going to be reviewed.
And even further absurd that I just thought about. Those pylons get knocked over with the slightest of touches. And that's the point of them. To move if they get touched. It should've been extremely clear whether it touched or not. A football touching the pylon at any point, with any forward movement would knock it down.

Sorry BIR, my attempt at sarcasm about the camera angle was not as obvious as I thought.........Good point about the pylons.
Haha! Here, I'll help . . .
There were plenty of cameras, as the game was aired by one of the two CBS-owned stations in the market. The PPV was just the scoreboard/jumbotron video. Nothing but laziness on the part of the replay official.
Isnt there different levels of proof that the relay official can use to make a decision. Such as if there is not visual evidence to overrule the on the field call versus visual evidence to confirm the call on the field. i am pretty sure the referree said the call was confirmed meaning the replay official had evidence to uphold the call on the field. It just seems a big stretch to conclude that the official just made an error.
There is defininitely different lingo they can use, such as:
"After further review, the call is confirmed" -- meaning there is video evidence to back up the original call
"After further review, the call stands" -- meaning there is not sufficient video evidence to overturn the original call, therefore the original call stands
"After further review, the call is reversed" -- meaning there is video proof the original call is incorrect

This kinda shows just how huge this botched call was, doesn't it?
Yeah it could have been a momentum and game changer. But seeing what the Jag-wahs have done with opportunties and goalline situation this entire season (with the exception of FAU game), I'm not that sure it would have been 24-21; or 24-17 for that matter.
JAG FAN SINCE <><>
4 shots from the 1 yard line. I believe we get 7 on that drive.
Barring a false start, personal foul, holding penalty, and delay of game. yeah seven is possible.
and my personal favorite...illegal substitution
