Indiana Screwed by Refs on 4th Quarter Interception for Michigan

It could have been a magnificent upset for the Indiana Hoosiers at the Big House but alas, the dominant program prevailed. Indiana led the game with about nine minutes left after scoring on an 85 yard touchdown run by Darius Willis. You knew that Michigan wouldn’t be held back and Tate Forcier led the team down the field, connecting with Martavious Odoms to give Michigan the go-ahead score. At this point all was right in the world for the Wolverines; they should never be beat by Indiana. But the Hoosiers still had a chance to pull out the win or try for a tie, down just 36-33 with two and a half minutes left. Now I’m not saying Indiana would have marched down the field but I am saying that terrible calls by the referees like the one below sure doesn’t help. Check out the last minute interception by Michigan around the 1:30 mark:

Like I said, the refs didn’t take a win away from Indiana, but they gave them a bad call on that interception. It should not have been ruled an INT since the two players held the ball simultaneously. I supposed the refs just sped up the inevitable though it’s not their place to.
