You ever hear someone say, “that was a great game”, but you knew it wasn’t?
I kept hearing that last night when I was on my way home from the Alamo Bowl. I was the guy saying nothing, because it was not a great game. It was one thoroughly overmatched team being allowed back into the game by a series of imaginary calls. Kansas State had no business being on a field with UCLA. Way, way too much speed, and K-State couldn’t stop the run.
You and I know, the only people who cared about last night’s Alamo Bowl were the teams (obviously, there were players on both sides gunning for each other, even on the final kneel down of the game), some scouts and Vegas. A game 31-6 at the half ends 40-35 because those officials chose to get involved and make that game close. I guess they didn’t want the multitude of K-State fans attending the event to go downtown and get liquored up. Like that wasn’t going to happen anyway.
I don’t get it, officials. You were throwing flags all over the place earlier in the game. Didn’t that play deserve one?
I guess it didn’t affect the point spread. Don’t know where they got those officials from but they’d do well without bringing them back again.
