Because I know no one else watches Vandy football, here's the scenario.
Vandy scores a TD with about 2:30 to go in the game. Go for the two-point conversion to tie, don't succeed. Kick off to Northwestern.
With about a minute and a half left, we stop Northwestern on third down, by tackling the QB who was running for the first. Now, keep in ind this was a designed running play, in which the QB is a runner, and this guy had been running around all game.
We stop him short of the first. But then the BIG TEN official throws a flag. WTF? The call? "High Hit." Not helmet-to-helmet hit, because no such thing happened, as the video below clearly demonstrates. High hit. The problem is there is no such thing as a penalty for a "high hit." The hit is either legal or it is not. This one was legal. But don't take my word for it:This penalty ended the game, essentially. You just can't throw that flag, in that situyation. Actually, not in ANY situation, because it's a bullshit flag. Now, truth be told the game shouldn't have come down to that. Vandy certainly gave away chances to wini that game. All in all, this is symbolic of every close Vandy loss in the last 10 years. Played well enough to beat a superior opponent, but in the end we lost because we shot ourselves in the foot and got screwed by the refs.
