Let's see if Mizzou can finally flip the birds today. If they can't, at least I can.
Update: the birds have been flipped, 42-17. KU made it interesting after an absolutely weird review. Mizzou had scored an apparent 80 yard touchdown pass from Chase Daniel to Brad Ekwerekwu (just say "Ek." You''ll be fine). Behind the play, a KU defender completely laid out Tiger WR Jared Perry, about 25 yards behind the play, and got flagged for a personal foul. KU coach Mark Mangino asked for a review, apparently saying that Perry (I think) should be called for a personal foul as well. They reviewed the play and said Perry had indeed committed a personal foul. No TD. Mizzou punted and KU scored quickly to come to within 20-17. But the Tigers showed guts and scored the next 22. Game over.
Further update: A correction and a clarification are needed for the sake of accuracy. The nullified pass would have gone for 75 yards, not 80. And the review was to clarify whether the foul occurred before "Ek" had crossed the goal line. What threw the crowd for a loop was the way the whole replay went down.
Here's a brief breakdown of the sequence. The pass was complete and Ek ran for the score. Sometime around the time Ek crossed the goal line, the flag was thrown. The referee announced what the flag was for (personal foul on KU) and said the touchdown would stand. Then he said the play would be reviewed. Members of the crowd didn't understand what possibly could be getting reviewed. After the review, they announced another, offsetting, foul on Mizzou had been called. So those of us in attendance thought the referees were reviewing the penalty per-se, not its timing - at least that's what I gathered from my own inner monologue and the, rather, external monologues of those in attendance around me.
Indeed, as John Kadlec (on the radio broadcast) wondered, why was this penalty reviewable but the penalty on Monte Wyrick was not?
