    Defensive cannot touch the receiver when the ball is in the air, cannot impede the receivers route to the ball and cannot run over the receiver. Wisconsin did all 3, not ONE official threw a flag. It was like, the ball left the QB's hands, game over! Nothing happened after that.

    I wouldn't have minded running one or the other, but didn't like both. I really don't get what we were doing on the last series of regulation. Few nice short to intermediate passes and then not.

    Are you out of your mind? The guy who has gone for it on 4th down in critical times this year when others say we should have punted plays not to lose? What in the world are you talking about?

    Totally agree, if they go with a fake run up the gut and throw to the outside, say an out pattern 7 yards. Then come back with a run play, but on first down, when you've been doing it the whole game, why not just line up and call the play at the line, the whole stadium knew the play!

    Exactly. Here's what the actual rule from the rule book states:
    So lets go through this point by point:
    Was there contact beyond the neutral zone? Yes.

    Was Jordan Westerkamp an eligible receiver? Yes.

    Was the Wisconsin player's intent to impede him? Yes.

    Was it obvious and did it prevent Westy from the opportunity off receiving a catchable forward pass? Yes and yes.

    Did the contact occur after the pass was thrown? Yes.

    Then you have the 4 things that disqualify it. #1 doesn't apply because it wasn't within one yard of the neutral zone. #2 doesn't apply because clearly the defender wasn't "making a simultaneous and bona fide attempt to reach, catch or bat the pass" as the ball went behind him and he wasn't even looking at it, only at Westy. #3 doesn't apply because it was after the pass was thrown (and if it occured before, it should have been defensive holding). #4 doesn't apply because it wasn't a kick.

    It was pass interference. Period.

    My bad. I shouldn't have added that last part. Just frustrated. Like I said in another post, maybe outside zone is something I would have done different.

    I am not crazy and I don't care about a fourth down against Purdue or Illinois. I thing our last series of regulation we got into field goal range and then shut down. I wish we would have been more aggressive and tried for the touchdown.

    Yes you are. Riley is anything but a play not to lose coach. Just have to come up with something to criticize him for, don't you? Heaven forbid we'd give our coaches credit for something. Bottom line-you wanted to blame this on Riley, and you came up with something that is totally stupid. If we had gone for the TD, you would have got on him for being to agressive. Because, you wanted to get on Riley for something. That was your only desire. Blame Riley.

    I am a Riley fan but it is going to take him some time too. I don't share your opinion so that makes me stupid I guess. I will just read your posts and try to get as smart you. Thank you for your knowledge.

    The problem with a lot officials in game such as this, an official doesn't want to be the official that decides the game on one play. So, what our crew does is this, if the penalty is there more than one officials throws a flag and it's a group call. This re-enforces the call and it makes the call right. Too many, just want to get off the field and leave, it's so much easier (which is weak). You can bet the officials talked about this exact play in the locker room. Guarantee they knew it was real.

    Yeah, Riley fan my a$$. If your criticism made any sense, I wouldn't say anything about it. Your criticism of him calling him a play not to lose coach is so mind blowingly stupid and indefensible that I wasn't going to let it get by. He is anything but a play not to lose coach-and by calling him that, you clearly are not a Riley fan. Yeah, you make up stupid crap to criticize him for-but you're certainly a fan, aren't you? What a joke. Your schtick is pretty easy to see through.

    Man a coach and a mind reader, your better than I thought. Let it get by? Not a Riley fan? It is still my opinion, I think we kicked the safe field goal rather than go for the touchdown. Wasn't a slam, just my opinion. For some reason you took it personal.

    Because it's stupid. Your position is reaching to make a point-and proves that you are making up crap to criticize him about. And also proves why Mike Riley is a coach and you are some pathetic poster who doesn't understand strategy and doesn't understand what being a coach that plays not to lose is.

    It's a coach that doesn't try to score a touchdown to win, it's a coach that plays prevent, it's a coach that beats Notrhwestern Illinois and Indiana in close games, it is a coach that hasn't learned how to put a team away. Maybe you are a pathetic poster.
