OSU QB Germaine led an unexpected game winning drive with little time left. [Aside, the ’97 Rose Bowl was a classic in and of itself). Though OSU still needs to develop a passing game at some point–it appears that the Woody Hayes style of play is working.
Probably with an even more dramatic finish than Donovan’s game winner against Algeria in 2010–the US Women’s team playing with just 10 players and horrendous officiating–still managed to win!
The officiating was worse than that seen in the US (men)-Slovakia game in South Africa last year. The penalty and red card call were definitely not a call…the red card was excessive. And the reason for the penalty retake? Suspect.
Granted, Marta’s early goal in extra time was a deft touch but nonetheless..
The Brazilians also showed a real lack of sportsmanship in extra-time….just look at Erika who went down (phantom injury?) had to be taken off by stretcher than could magically run again? That’s totally classless.
More likely he was forced to resign. It’s a shame that things came to end the way they did. For so long, it appeared (from the outside) that he was a stand-up individual (on top of being a good coach). Oh well.
I understand that you’re excited by your team’s last minute victory over Indianapolis. However, you’ve been standing outside the local dive-bar, drunk, chanting and hollering. Not only that but you’ve been dabbling in and out of the street, which leads to car horns being sounded.
I can both see and hear that you are are clearly drunk. While that is understandable, why can’t you keep your chanting to in the bar? That way people won’t be honking their horns, nor will it be as loud outside when I attempt to sleep this evening?
Iowa. They didn’t play too great on offense for parts of the game (dropped passes) and the D was shaky at times. Too many silly penalties too. However, they came through on both sides of the ball in the clutch, Oh, and the ABC announcers were atrocious! Not only did they seem very pro-Iowa, but they were just lame and monotonous. It was almost like Joe Buck calling an NCAA game! Now the countdown begins for The Game!
