  3. You officiating crew was horrific at the 2014 Cotton Bowl. All of you should resign or be suspended for all of 2014. The worst called game in my years of attending College Football Games.

    the development of awful excessiveness amount
    the actual malfunction stacking wire small business, even worse.

  5. Mr. Lemonnier,
    The last I knew, it was illegal for an offensive player to push, pull, drag, throw, or carry the ball carrier to keep him up or advance him forward. I see it every game I watch, especially at the goal line. Why is it never called?
