Former Penn State great and current Redskin LaVar Arrington was just ejected from the game mid way though the 3rd qtr for riding the officals too hard...

i've never heard of this before, have fans been ejected for heckling before in football? i know that there anti-heckling rules in the NBA because of Flicker, a lawyer and sometimes canidate for everything in Maryland...

Penn State should've won.

After seeing Paterno after the game, The Jets should sign him as insurance.

Penn State should ALWAYS win. [/bias]
Technically, as much as it pains me to say it, Iowa should have won even without OT. Thank Jebus the defense kept 'em from taking advantage of some really *really* generous field position. 14 missed points at least, minus the stupid safety and field goal that bounced in, and they still would have won by 9. *sigh*

Lavar and his l'il (compared to him) bodyguard getting thrown out doesn't really surprise me in light of the rest of the officiating of that game. Lots of missed calls, both for and against State.

The Penn State team that played for the first 51 minutes did NOT deserve to win. The Penn State team that played for the last 9 minutes did deserve to win, though. And for the game to be decided in OT by two blatantly awful, atrocious, despicable calls is disgusting. Joe Paterno, a 75-year-old man sprinted across the field after the game just to chew the ref out some more. There's no way the Iowa receiver had possession of that ball, even out of bounds. I guess Joe got 'written up' or something during the 3rd quarter, after the Iowa TD that really was kinda iffy - it really didn't look like he came down in bounds, but it was hard to tell. When Joe's mad like that, you know it's a blown call. But I digress, it was a good game aside from all of that other crap.

I watched the very beginning of the game and I turned it off when it started getting out of hand,I turn it on another game and about 30 minutes later it turn it back and I about spit out my pizza.

I was amazed they came back.They should have won but the offensive calls in overtime were bad.

I'm intrigued to see what this does to the balance of power in the Big 10. You've still got Wisconsin & OSU undefeated, and Iowa/Michigan are undefeated in the conference, though they have 1 loss. PSU has one now, too, and it's a painful in-conference one. Whether Iowa or PSU jumps up and bites a Michigan or Wisconsin is worth looking at, and there's also MSU, who could start tearassing around and knock some people off the way they did OSU back in 98 or 99. Purdue won their conference game, but they're going to fall back to Earth hard in the near future.

I was pretty sick before the game started, so I might be off the mark.

The main theme of the game for Penn State seemed to be a lack of confidence. Rather than going to and sticking with playmaker Zack Mills when the offense got stuck, they got possessed with trying to run the option. I think Slash Version 2.0 Mike Robinson is an amazing athlete, but by the time the coaches bothered calling forward passes, ESPN close-ups of the dazed look on Mills' face spoke volumes on the lack of confidence he felt at that moment. I don't remember them really throwing downfield until they absolutely had to, and of course he connected with Johnson effortlessly. By then, you could see the determined look on his face that if he could do anything about it, he was not going to lose this game.

I can't objectively describe how good Iowa is as a team, but Brad Banks is a great QB. I'd bet that they win the conference title, if it wasn't for the fact that there is no Iowa-Ohio State game this year. One of those teams could conceivably win the conference outright, which says a lot considering how tough the Big Ten schedule is year-to-year.

Hell of a game. Hell of a game.

If I were a Michigan fan, I'd take the personal foul penalty on 3rd and long at 35-31 to the grave with me. That was the only point after the beginning of the second quarter where I thought Michigan had a chance to win.
