“The Big 12 officiating supervisor on Monday night admitted “a couple” of incorrect calls in the Texas’ loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday but basically exonerated the officiating crew and didn’t rule out the crew working future Longhorn games.
Walt Anderson told the American-Statesman that the crew led by referee Alan Eck “got the vast majority of the calls right,” even though Longhorn fans have been outraged ever since they felt 16 penalties for 128 yards helped cost Texas the game in a controversial 30-27 loss.
Anderson said, “I’ve been working on that (Texas game) all day. I’ve seen the whole tape. I evaluate every play, and I think we got the vast majority right. The good news was the vast majority of fouls were there and correctly called. Unfortunately, a couple of them were missed, and we’ll correct that. I’ve never seen one perfectly officiated, and I’m not expecting to do so.””
Despite the cries of foul fouls by the Longhorn faithful the Big 12 officials that called Saturday’s game between Texas and Oklahoma State did pretty well.
Fans across the league are enjoying Texas’ cries as schools like Iowa State know how it feels to be on the other side of a bad call benefiting the ‘horns.
