Stoops' Troops Ready to Move On
Probably the most talked about incident left Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma Sooners on the wrong side of human-related-instant-replay error. The Pac-10 officiating crew has been suspended for one game for botching the possession call on the late-game onsides kick. Even with instant replay, there are going to be mistakes.
In college football, one play, one game, one loss can change the course of a season for a team. And while there is certainly a lot of football left to be played, Stoops has every right in the world to feel like this one game suspension doesn’t quite make amends.
To his credit, Stoops is ready to move on. That is a good thing for all concerned. Both teams need to move on, and the officials deserve to move on too. Did they make a mistake? Yes. Are they the first crew to miss a call? No. Will they be the last? Nope.

If you haven’t already; voice your opinion on the new clock rules. I’ve brought this up before but I’m reminded of why I do each Saturday when I’m waiting for play to resume. Coaches are being vocal on the subject as well. Let’s just be thankful that rules can be dropped just as fast as they were added.
