As much as a loss hurts, on that call the ref was correct.
MM dropped straight back between the goal posts....he was deep, but NOT out of the tackle box, IMO.
I think in any plays like that (The TD) the officials should always rule for "possession", in this case the offense and let the replay official rule otherwise...if it is a Bam Bam play, with a "judgement line", call the "Most likely" call and let the replay see if there is irrefutable evidence...because if you make the "abnormal" call, that the replay official can't see definitively, it'll cost a team points...
I know, it sure looked definite that the ball crossed the line...That's kind of my point...if the official on the field can't be sure, then tie goes to possession and let the booth take it away...
Same as the Stanford vs Notre Dame game....if the refs called a TD, the booth wouldn't have seen enough to take it away...they crossed the line too...
If you watch the game again you will see the tackle is line up with the goal post. And mm shuffles to his right and is a few yards past the goal post.
You are wrong

There's a perfect head-on replay that clearly shows he's a yard or two outside the tackle box. Now, it certainly didn't look good live, and McGloin didn't help matters with the way he got rid of the ball, so I don't have a huge issue with that blown call. It's unfortunate, but understandable. But as a matter of fact, and not opinion, he was outside the box.
If you think that then you just don't know the rule.
I don't like calling out people for being wrong but you are completely wrong here.
Was this the same crew that did the Ohio State game?
Does it matter where the tackle is when the ball is thrown versus where he is at the snap? I kinda remember our RT being pretty far wide on the that play
It is where the tackle lines up at the snap
What I find more frustrating was the number of times holding calls were not called on Nebraska. Obvious stuff right in front of refs.
If lehmans td counted, the safety never happens
