#77: Refs Go Crazy

Thankfully, Columbia didn't face too many cases of bad refereeing in 2010.

But during one stretch early in the second quarter of the week 3 game against Princeton, it seemed like the zebras were conspiring against the Lions in a big way.

First, a beautiful play by Ross Morand to knock Greg Guttas' punt before it went into the end zone was called a touchback anyway. Princeton was able to start their drive at the 20 instead of their own four.

But the killer came a few minutes later as Tiger QB Tommy Wornham overthrew receiver Trey Peacock on key third down play inside Columbia territory. As the ball sailed just out of Peacock's reach, Lion safety Adam Mehrer lightly bumped him drawing a ridiculous personal foul penalty that gave the Tigers new life.

Moments later, Princeton scored the first TD of the game for a 7-0 lead.

Fortunately, the score ended up waking up Columbia more than anything else. But watching that pair of weak calls against the Lions was extremely tough to bear at the time.

The guy who really intimidates the refs is one other than Bags. He has them looking over their shoulder on every close play.

Enough whinging about Bagnola already! Get over him and what ever he did. He has not violated any rules nor committed any crimes. Maybe he is not the model of gentlemanly behaviour...but he wins championships. I would like to see one before I die.

The whining about Penn and Bags is ridiculous. They beat us every year and the refs have nothing to do with it. Another vote with Chen.
