The botched call! We deserve an apology/an explanation from officiating team!

Not to keep kicking a dead horse, but the more I think about it, the more it pisses me off!  I know the game is over and we should be proud (which I am), however the review process should of been implemented.  We at least owe it to our players to get an explanation/an apology!  They played their hearts out!!!!

The question I pose is–can we have this looked into and in return have an explanation to our team?  I believe I speak for all of us in asking for some closure.  Does anyone know who we should write to?  Can we send an email to the NCAA?  Has the Coach talked about it in any press conferences down in South Florida???  Maybe I just need to get over it?

I don't know…I think this is one of those "just let it go" moments.  I do agree it should have been the Owl's ball, but it was a close play at full speed.  Would have been nice to see a review especially with it being such a pivotal time/play in the game.  Though, with the way the reviews have been going for us this season, they would have stopped the game for 5-10mins and still come back with the wrong call.

They stopped and reviewed several others calls with less impact on the game - that one play did have an effect on the outcome of the game & should have been reviewed

Notice the refs at the play called it FAU's ball it was, one was right next to the play. That could have easily been the turning point and the win. Like I said in another post time to move on but an apology would be nice. >:(

Just to focus a bit!  The botched call was the interference call where the kick returner ran into his own man.  The score was 21 -17 and we would of had the ball on their 10 yard line–would of been huge!  Big Mo would of kicked in for us!

Sorry, I don't mean to dwell!

I will move on, but not until we get an explanation????

IMO, it was a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE call… however, no conference OR even the NFL reviews "penalty" calls… those are calls of "judgment" and are never reviewable… just another reason i hate instant replay and reviewing calls… the entire system is a failure… if you're going to review ANYTHING, review the ENTIRE game
