Re: Sun Belt needs better recruiting....for Refs..

As the Wyoming player squeaked into the corner of the endzone for the final TD, most of the team piled in after him and danced around celebrating. A large group of Cowboys then ran to the back of the end zone near the fence separating the field from the raucous student section. They taunted the students in a manner not as bad as what ULM did two years ago, but still not in any manner of good  sportsmanship. Some of the students yelled back but I heard no profanities and saw nothing thrown.

No penalty was called! Now, please explain to me the simple matter of doing a dance in the endzone or diving into the endzone can generate a foul, but not the act of a large number of players taunting fans?

Thanks for that report. I didn't pick it up on the radio broadcast. Very strange no-call.

That non-call, which would have been imposed on the kickoff (right?) could have made a huge difference on our stalled drive with 3:00 left.

I'm not saying it was the reason that FAU lost, but the officiating the past 2 weeks has been horrendous.  Today was just ridiculous…they missed some obvious calls…they made calls that were simply wrong.  According to Rusty after the game, the Wyoming D-line were doing some illegal things to draw false starts(yelling the cadence or something) and they didn't call it.  Again, I never like using the refs as an excuse for a loss…and they most certainly were not why we lost today…but they have been terrible this season.

Add the ACC to the list....bad call just gave OU a Touchdown when at WORST it should have been 5 yds from where the ball was downed.
