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).

I was at the 40-30 game.  Wild game.   Took the kitties 30min to get the goalposts down.  It was a great scene.

Does any of our non-longhorn brethren find it rich that they are complaining about the refs?  

I’m surprised no Sooners have brought up that Ou Tech tilt from the mid to late 2000’s where OU was totally screwed (with replays to boot) at the end of the game. 

My personal favorite is the late hit or out of bounds hit that gave Texas a fresh set of downs and win the final A&M/Texas game. Pictures later surfaced showing said ref in Longhorn garb. Personally I blame that game on Mike Sherman and Bill Byrne.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

So I looked at that screenshot from Tombstone and wondered whatever happened JoAnna Pacula...

So I went to imbd to look at the full cast list...

Did you know Michael Rooker, Thomas Haden Church and Billy Bob Thornton were in it?  I didn't remember that.  They were all kind of lost in the wayside of Val Kilmer, Powers Booth and Michael Biehn chewing up the screen.

So I looked up clips.

Remembered Church.  Rooker was a youngster.  And Billy Bob Thornton was a chubby cheeked boy.  I didn't even recognize him.

Can we add the botched job the refs pulled in the Ok St-Texas game on the attempted fake punt from the Pokes.  Half of the team moves and Texas is called for offsides.  That was a big play in that game.

I understand that the Okies are moving around pre-snap, but the defense needs to hold their water and not cross the neutral zone

it was probably a bad call, but not the worst call ever

well... not one game... but...

Nebraska offensive opponents were called for zero holding calls on pass plays for 21 straight conference games (over 600 pass attempts).


The Generation X'er in me says the BIG has something against UNL.   The realist in me says UNL doesn't have a DL athletic enough to warrant a holding call.   Either way, it's an interesting stat.

This comes down to a judgement call. Clearly, offenses set and reset all the time. Players motion out of the backfield.
The differentiator is supposed to be "simulating the start of a play". That is, a RB can go in motion in a clearly defined movement. Jumping forward really fast before doing so would not be allowed.
I agree with you that the refs botched this one. When the two inside protectors suddenly shot towards the Center, the defending rushers logically took that as the start of the play (they're looking at the players and not the ball). oSu should have been called for a false start.

Learning to complain about Longhorn favoritism is part of Aggie fish camp.  No one listens when Aggies cry out.

As far as Sooners, too many of their MNC's have an asterisk for me to worry about their virtue being violated.

I preferred the good ol days when the offense had to be set for a full count and the defense could do whatever the heck they wanted to try to make them flinch
