Referee Statement

Head referee Michael Batlan offered his version of events on the final play of regulation: “The ruling on the field was that we were going to overtime. Through review, it was seen that the knee was down and time had expired and therefore we were headed to an overtime period.[EP
“Any coach can ask for a timeout but he doesn’t get one until an official grants or signifies it. I was not part of any conversation with regards to a requested timeout.”

    Looks like this was Batlan’s and his team’s bowl game too. Great work men. Don’t clear you calendars for the end of December or beginning of January.

    Seriously bucket… if you were to walk into oncoming traffic, no one on this blog would miss you. I’m sure your momma would weep, and you might have a male figure in your life that you suspect might be your dad, and those dudes would be down for a day or two, but no one here cares about your or your opinion. You should thank the lucky stars that you beat Cal. I know SC fans are happy. There’s still a chance that Richard may be coaching the baby bears next year. And really, isn’t that what we all want?

  • WRSC

    I agree with you, sureshot. The best news for SC today was that ucla won and Slick Rick will be their head coach for many years to come. SC will continue to dominate the “rivalry” and their football team will continue to be irrelevant.

    But I gotta give the Bucket full of crap credit for being proud of his team no matter how low they may be. Even after 10 years they still have 2006 to look back on and be happy in their continual beat down by SC.
