No info on the hero ref, 320?

Gigem, could you elaborate?

Im really not in the group of conspiracy advocates that some are but let’s just say that said ref, perhaps the same guy that put 1 second back on the clock vs Nebraska, made a very, very questionable late hit out of bounds call that put the previously referred to Mr Tucker in position to make that kick.  

Shortly after the game there were some pictures that surfaced showed him purportedly wearing UT gear.  

There are a fair amount of Aggies (and Nebraskans) that believe that you have to beat the refs as well as the Longhorns.  

But I’m not one of them.

This is the play for those who are interested.  I haven’t seen it in many years but I have to admit that it’s quite possible it would be called targeting now. 

I thought then as I think now that it was bullshit, but if we wanted to win we should’ve not been in position to lose at that point. 

We had our chances to win outright, it’s just one of those things that happen during the game.

I looked over the stats for that game because I wasn’t sure that PF was really all that critical. 

Surprisingly Justin Tucker was the field goal kicker and made every punt in the game?  That must be a rarity.  I know in the past we’ve had kickers do this because of injury and such but that is really rare.

Austin Siebert (now playing for the Cleveland Browns) handled all of OU's kicking and punting chores last year.
That didn't look like much of a hit.  And it didn't look like the Horn player was out of bounds, unless he had already stepped out and back in.
We had one called on us in Dallas when our guy chasing Chase McCoy out of bounds put his hands on Colt's shoulders to steady him as they went into the crowd on the sideline.
I imagine that UT fans can cite a similar instance where a zebra who lives and has a business in Austin Norman has called something like that on the Horns.

I was mistaken. He wasn’t out of bounds, but it was called as a PF late hit.  It was a first down play.  A picture came out right after the game supposedly showing that ref wearing UT garb.  Whatever.  We had 4 turnovers including Tannehill’s pick 6.  I was glad to see Sherman go.  He could recruit and evaluate talent but he just didn’t know how to coach a college game.
