What a terribly officiated Neb-O.state game. Pathetic. Missed calls left and right lost Nebraska that game.

Oh boy! Here come the losers whining about the refs! Face it, your team just blew an 18 point second half lead! That was a huge choke. Sorry about your team’s inability to finish.

Lets talk about the Michigan State game last week. OSU goes to the line close to 30 times, MSU 10 times. Aaron Craft can grad, scratch and hold and he very seldom gets called. Wisconsin and OSU are the favorites of the B1G officials, no doubt.
