Well, looks like there were some bad calls made by the refs in a few games yesterday. One was the free gift wrapped victory given to New England yesterday to screw Cleveland out of a victory. Don't get me wrong, I can't stand Cleveland whatsoever, and would love to see Cleveland always lose. But when it screws a team over like that, there's no place in sports for that shit.

Another reason I'm annoyed by that decision is it would have helped my Bengals getting that #2 seed from New England have they lost to Cleveland with three games in the regular season to play. That New England lose would have tied new England with my Bengals at 9-4, with My Bengals holding the edge between both teams since we already beaten New England a few weeks ago.

Another blown call was in my Bengals game. Our main RB stumbled to get to the goal line, but fell a little short. It was first ruled that he's was down by contact. Looking at the replays, one really can't tell either way that the Indy defender touched his ankle or not. From every angle, one couldn't be 100% sure. Apparently the refs all got together and determined that no contact was made, and that our RB made a move to dodge the player hand and stumbled trying to get to the goal line, and so the call was reversed and we were given a touchdown. Thankfully it really played no role in our win since was one by 14. A couple of time during the game my Bengals we up as much as 21 points.

However, since one couldn't really tell if the defender's finger caught part of him or not, and that it was first ruled down by contact, it shouldn't have been reversed. The bottom line is the refs should have gotten the call right the first time. But since every angle of the tapes that I saw wasn't 100% conclusive, it shouldn't have been reversed.

Cincinnati got plenty of snow yesterday morning from that weather system that dumped a lot of snow on Pittsburgh, Philly, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. during those games. Luckily my Bengals had a nice big tarp out on the field to prevent the snow on the field come game time.

As for the BCS standings go, yes, My Ohio State Buckeyes choked and couldn't seal the deal. After watching them come back down 17-0 and then up on Michigan St. 24-17, but then couldn't keep the lead, the Buckeyes didn't deserve to win and play in the BCS Championship title game against Florida State.

I will be pulling for Florida State to win against Auburn. For one, I didn't like nor cared about Auburn's whining and campaigning about them being the team to that should play Florida State in the title bowl instead of Ohio state when Ohio State had just beaten Michigan and was still undefeated a week before facing off against Michigan St. for the Big Ten title, even though they (Auburn) had already lost a game late in the season.

Auburn has NOW earned that right to be in the national title game since Ohio State lost, but not before when they started their whining when it was clearly Ohio State earning that shot against Florida State.

Another reason I want Florida State to win is because the SEC teams seem to think they're the best over any other conference out there. Nothing wrong in feeling that way, however, a lot of the SEC teams have taken it to new highs with arrogance and whining when they don't get their way.
