    Ref announced the ball would start on the SNAP. It started on the spot. Collins calls timeout and negates the game-winning touchdown.

    If the refs hadn't blown that call, as awfully as we played, we would've won the game.

    They should've at least put the clock back to 0:13 and given us our timeout.

    CGC was clearly hot about it in his presser.

    They didn't grant us the timeout until after the snap

    His sideline antics negated the game winning TD. He should be hot about that.

    Also true. So now we have retroactive timeouts?

    How else should he have handled it? Suddenly if we didn't score on that play, we lose the game. He couldn't know it was going to go for a TD.

    In fairness it's not uncommon for refs to say "timeout was called before the play" if it was signalled for but not granted

    The thing that really screwed us was saying the clock wouldn't start til the snap

    He shouldn’t second guess his players for one.

    I don’t follow. if we don’t score, he could then call the timeout. And kick a FG. I am missing something here?

    Not necessarily with 6s left on the game clock. The play could take 6s. He also didn't know it'd be snapped at 6s. If it's snapped at 3s we were really doomed

    We did get screwed. Should be 2-1 and ecstatic right now.

    OK, thought there was more. I have to go back and watch again.
    Except I am absolutely NOT going to go back and watch that again.

    The mistake was not using the last timeout to negate the 10 sec runoff and stop the clock. Much better to be first down with 26 seconds and no timeouts with clock starting on snap.

    Dont know why the confusion because the clock is supposed to start on ready for play if we allow the runoff.

    Well they weren't going to correct their error with the clock because they didn't do it after timeout was called. So calling timeout was the right choice

    Maybe accepting the 10 second run off instead of taking the TO before that to keep the clock at 23 seconds would have been smart.

    Collins be all like, “F that. Lets juice it.”

    Agree about specific play but the only time I have seen a ref truly screw up a game was Colorado vs mizzou 1990.

    We were playing a FCS team. We should have been up 50-3 with 20 seconds left in the 4th.

    Coach flatbill hashtag doesn't have anything to stand on here.
