Ultimately, who cares if it crossed the goal line? Who cares if the ball was on the 1 yard line or the 3 yard line? We got a 6 yd pass, -1 yd pass, and an incomplete..... 3 and out. The referees arent going to be suspended, it wasnt going to decide the game...... no use in crying about it now.
It would have been the 20 vs the 1. And then play calling would have been different.
This year (and hell maybe every year) I feel like the big 12 zebras give Iowa State the same treatment as a nonconf foe would get playing against a big 12 team. Just ridiculous that it seems even worse at home. I know fans get on the refs everywhere if they miss a call in the home teams favor but I have heard more booing this year at JTS directed at the refs than I can ever remember. I know we didn't play well enough to win but a few calls here or there certainly wouldn't have hurt.
Guess I'm in the minority and thought that it could have gone either way. 6 inches? Please. It was a very close call, and whatever the officials on the field called would have stood. The line judge was right on top of it.
