I guess instead of manning up and stopping us in the first place PSU just has to rely on that one call. [kicksrocks]
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA

Sweet, you guys only lose by 2 instead of 9. Way to go.
Yeah because Penn State totally goes for it on fourth down up by 1 point
Doesn't matter, don't be a sore loser. If you don't give up 14 points in like 19 seconds to start the second half it wouldn't matter. The better team won.
The problem is that it was called a fumble on the field which is why I think it was not reversed

I'm pretty sure he's a Michigan fan...you keep referring to him as a Penn St fan
Doesn't matter every team gets screwed by the refs from time to time, especially Nebraska, fact is we did enough to win the game. Penn St. had plenty of chances to seal the outcome early and failed to do so
Agreed....I think Nebraska wins no matter what that call is but I still think that was a TD
I agree but I understand the review call and as has been stated previously, the error was the initial call on the field...would not have been overturned regardless of Td or fumble
The ball is not even in his hands there. How u call that evidence is beyond me. This was a good call by the officials. If it got overturned, it would have been wrong. You have to indisputablely prove that the call on the field was wrong. No way in hell they could do that. Besides, the booth said and saw the same thing as I. So, make that an excuse for your loss all you want, bit you wouldn't be right. Sorry.
Oath Before Orders
And by booth, I mean the replay booth. Not the donkeys calling the game.
Yep....once the call was made on the field very tough for the replay to over turn without knowing for sure the ball was not moving...... When it's that close almost 99 percent of the time the call on the files stands
Lando's just made we won...
It was a difficult call... If the dude doesn't drop the ball it's a none issue. He dropped the ball and put the game in the hands of the refs who, whether they got it right or wrong, played the review by the book. That gif does not show "indisputable" evidence to overturn. It sure looked like a fumble live. Kid just needs to lower his shoulder instead of stick the ball out, he dropped the ball and put the call in the ref's court. It's the kid's fault not the ref's.
Wow you guys are really in denial. Good luck the rest of the year. Hope you guys win the Rose Bowl to put the icing on the cake for a great Big Ten showing in the bowl season!
Edit: Lando -- Language.

No denial here could have been called either way, we've dealt with calls plenty of times it's part of the game
Thank you. We'll also enjoy New Years when we play in Pasadena.
1) I thought the play would be ruled a touchdown after the review and was surprised it wasn't.
2) The call on the field weighs heavily. If the side judge had ruled it a touchdown live, that call would have stood as well.
3) There was still 7+ minutes left in the game and given Nebraska's propensity for late game dramatics, Nebraska had as good of a chance or better of winning the game regardless. It's not like the call occurred with 10 seconds left, like a rather infamous call 30 years ago.
Thanks for giving us a better view of that play. It looked to me as if the ball was coming out of his hands just as the ball broke the plane of the goal. I say he fumbled.
Hey Lando, I know you disagree with me but I disagree with you. (I am trying to make a joke)
Anyway I thought PSU played a hard nosed game of football yesterday and can see bright things in PSU's future. Good luck the remainder of the season.

Your saying that the PSU player had control of the football while the ball crossed the goal line? I didn't see that but I'm getting older and may need a new pair of glasses. ha ha ha ha
I do agree with the rest of your points.
