All of the attention is (rightfully) on the Denver-San Diego mess, but there was another very controversial call this weekend. In the Wisconsin-Fresno State game, a Fresno State fumble was overturned after a replay review. What makes this unique is that the replay review was apparently badly blown.
According to Colin Cowherd on his radio show this morning, this was an absolutely insane call. He has no doubt that the replay official should be fired, and they should all be very embarassed. I guess the difference is that this call didn’t quite cost Wisconsin the game, while the Hochuli call very definately cost the Chargers their game.
I didn’t see the play, so I can’t comment for sure. If you saw it, what did you think? Was it an obviously blown call, or did they get it right with the review?
Also, did anyone catch the name of that official? I can’t find it anywhere.
Here is the play for those that missed it:
