What is your take on the last Texas touchdown last night?
From just an initial look at a few replays, it appears to me that OSU got jobbed.
Osu got robbed, it should have been a fumble and osu ball.
Yeah looked like a fumble. I was listening to Hunziker on the radio during that play and let's just say he was a tad displeased.

From what the rules expert said, I don't think they could overturn. I don't think there is any question Texas fumbled and OSU recovered. The problem was with the official who called it a touchdown. If you cannot see the ball, you should check before signaling.
It was a touchdown, because that's what prevailed.
Looked to me that ball crossed plane before he fumbled.....
i am shocked i tell you shocked that a ref in the swc12-2-1-1+2 would give fexas a favorable call. i mean all those years we have played down in Dallas i can't remember a single time fexas was given an advantage from the ref.
Insufficient video evidence to overturn the call. Will enjoy hearing the sheep herders and local media crying through the next week about it.
It was a bad call.
........since it screwed the pukes, it was a good call.
It was a bang-bang play that the on-field officials had to judge based on one real-time opportunity to see what happened in a dogpile. The on-field officials appear to have gotten it wrong, but the replay officials did not have enough to overturn it.
There are already numerous conspiracy theory claims coming out of the woodwork about it of course, which at least provide some entertainment.
I agree with soonerwood.
Since there was nothing in the video that showed he did not break the plane with the ball before the fumble, it could not be overturned.
Let me ask this the other way around. Would it change your opinion if the ball carrier wore Crimson & Cream instead of Burnt Orange?
Absolutely yes. My answer to your question.
Just want to make sure I am clear.
Are you saying:
1. Since was a Texas ball carrier it should not have been a TD and ruled a fumble and
2. If it was an OU ball carrier it should be a TD and no fumble.
You sir, are correct. I'm a complete homer, and I have no problem admitting it!!!! Joking aside, I do think think that because there was not indisputable evidence to overturn the call at least from what I could see, it needed to stand. Had the initial call been ruled in Oklahoma State's favor, would offer the same comment, I don't think it gets overturned. I really couldn't tell if he broke the plane before losing control of the ball.
Really could not clearly tell if ball was across down in the pile(or as they now like to say 'scrum') when it came loose according to Fox's guest official last nite, however not nearly as bad a call as when we got ripped off in Lubbock.
it was not a screw job . the aggpies got exactly what they deserved.
hell they had a chance to stop ut and they didn't .
I sure wanted it to be a fumble. Texas sucks.
Reminded me of Oregon game, but obviously not as bad.
True call appears to be fumble and OSU ball, but it was not obvious that the UT ball carrier had not crossed the plane. I just don't think he did.
During the rb's initial leap through the air over the pile, the ball crossed the plane. On his way back down he dropped the ball - but scooped it back up at the same time an OSU player grabbed it, so had 2 clinging to the ball - but it had already crossed the plane. Texas TD was the correct call. I wanted Texas to win so they will have the big head when we play them in Dallas, providing they get by WVU. WVU's D is vulnerable, as proved by Baylor.
