Clearly, based on winning record this year, BC is the better team, so YES, the better team won. I haven't watched many BC games this year, but if they have the zebras on their side every game like they did last night, it is no wonder they are the best team in the league. Until the end of the fourth, the reffing wasn't too bad other than an obvious pass interference on Thurmon in the endzone that went uncalled and a few missed holding calls on both sides of the ball. But the fourth quarter was a gong show. Say what you want about me and "all Rider fans", but on a third down gamble we not only stopped BC, we gave them a loss of yards. There was blatant movement on the line however..... and movement was called..... only they called it on Benefield when clearly, even before the replay verified it, the BC lineman..... that is the offensive lineman, not to be confused with the ref lineman who was clearly on their team...... was the one who jumped early. So now, rather than being our ball, they get a first down and go on to score. THEN......... on our next possession, 2nd and inches we get called for procedure because O'Day picked up the ball...... HOW CAN HE SNAP IT IF IT IS NOT IN HIS HANDS?!?!?!?!?!?!? So rather than 1st and 10 it is 2nd and 5. Granted we should have converted on 2nd and 5, but we shouldn't have had to. We should have got the first down and continued to punch away at the clock. So go ahead, say what you will, but I am right!
Go Riders!! It is a long way up hill from here!
