Yep.  I remember that.  

No offense to Fearless Frankie who is clearly one of the good guys but questionable calls seem to follow the Cornhuskers like a stench.

Everybody's probably got a couple, but Nebraska's got a lot.   They had the flea kicker at Missouri, the 2010 Aggie game.  Some Big Red fans even got their back up about Colt McCoy's added second in the 2009 CCG.

Colossal anti-Horn sentiment built up on that latter one until somebody pointed out Nebraska had benefited from an eerily identical scenario in the 1994 Orange Bowl.

we've been over this many times, but the flea kicker was a judgement by the zebra that the Husker WR inadvertently kicked the ball and not intentionally - I could see it either way.

The Tigger fans were upset, but the Michigan fans have seemed to hold the grudge tighter for longer.

the added time to the clocks was a bit similar but not identical

I was at the 94 Orange Bowl, there it was obvious that the WR was down with more than a couple seconds on the clock and obviously a first down.  Clock should have stopped and the Huskers did have another time out.  Wasn't a matter of Refs allowing the TO in time.  The McCoy pass that went out of bounds clearly hit the handrail or whatever with one second on the clock when checking with the replay.  I thought it was a good call.  Don't think either instance really could have been ruled any other way.

It would have been nice if the Horn kicker would have duck hooked the ball like the Husker kicker did to give Bobby Bowden his first MNC.

The thing is - if that play had happened at any other point during regulation, we wouldn't be analyzing a replay to see precisely when the ball hit OOB.

Football is flawed.  Humans are flawed.  But that's what we have to work with in this life.

That ball hitting the handrail was dumb luck. Colt was out on his feet and had no idea what he was doing. He's a student of the game, would have normally known clock management, and would have rifled that ball out of bounds. Suh spent the evening sitting on Colt's head (despite the entire Texas OL trying to prevent it), and he was clearly loopy.

The game that stands out in my minds was the 2000 Stanford/TX game. The Pac-<x> insists on always using their officials because, well, they're a better breed of human after all. Now, officials have a hard job, they make mistakes, blah blah blah. It's real hard to see that game as fairly contested, though.

Mine of course are the obvious ones

the Texas game in 1984
the Oregon game in 2006

Both times the Sooners were screwed out of wins by the referees.  I was at the Oregon game, and met fellow porcher Mex the Dog afterwards.  We both agreed that Oregon fans were very accommodating (I had three different fans buy me a beer just because I was a Sooner fan - it made me think that I should just start going down to Eugene with the opponent's colors on for every home game, and essentially drink on the house, but I doubt this would work for Pac 12 rivals, only OOC teams like OU that hardly ever go there and may never again after what happened that day!).  We also agreed that the refs were abyssmal.  In Mex's words, we got jobbed.

and then there was this non-call



Ouch FF.  That's brutal just to look at, much less experience.  Did EC keep on playing that day?

yes, he may have taken a play or two off, but finished the game

Crouch was a tough one.

Who was the QB you had that had a name that sounded like the Count of Monte Cristo or something?

That was a big game for the time.  KSU hadn't beaten NU in decades and seemed to be the last hurdle to a MNC (seemed!).  All the KSU fans had that 40-30 sig for awhile.  I wonder where our KSU friends went?  Skicat, WC4E, etc.

When I first started on CNNSI, there was this K State poster named The Ville.

I hate to admit it but he was kind of like a role model for me.  He never seemed to lose his temper.  He was eternally patient.  His answers were always logical and well-thought out.  He seemed to respect everybody else, no matter how stupid or annoying they were.

Then we all moved to another site and he kind of became a sarcastic condescending jerk.

WC4E still checks in from time to time.  They were on a lot back when KC was in the Series

The Rice game.   Either Akers or McWilliams last year.       And the Ohio State / Miami national championship.

2002?  Something about a reception.   I had forgotten that.

I need to check that one out.

Crouch was a tough one.

Who was the QB you had that had a name that sounded like the Count of Monte Cristo or something?
Monte Christo would end his Husker career appearing in 18 games (starting one). He'd rush 64 times for 275 yards and three touchdowns, and completed 19 passes for 261 yards and two scores.
1998 (Senior)
Christo was the No. 3 quarterback behind Bobby Newcombe and Eric Crouch entering his senior season, but earned the start against Texas while Newcombe and Crouch battled through injuries (partially torn knee ligament and hip injury, respectively).
