When the ball carrier is in the grasp, no longer uprignt and no longer making any forward progress, or attempting to make forward progress the ref will typically blow the whistle.
He was tackled, but landed sitting on Cabinda and stood up right away, no longer in his grasp.  I didn't think the play was dead when watching it live.  Nor did I see any reason to think he had been tackled during any replays.  I'm just surprised I didn't see a single mention of it anywhere.

I'll bet it's mentioned plenty on the OSU boards!

They're more caught up in the "missed" PI call (even though there was a pretty hefty illegal hands to the face by the OSU LT on the same play)

I read that as it taking 5 pigs 5 total minutes to eat those 5 pounds of food, or, 1 pound per pig per minute.

As for #3, you don't know up front which string is the hour string right?

Oh dear reviews on charges and blocks? What a disaster that's going to be.
On the upside, instant review may  allow refs to learn and adjust quickly.  It may end up reducing the number of bogus charge calls in real-time.

Or they'll learn to rely on replay and not be as concerned about getting the call right on the court.

Was Barrett ever actually down on the third down sack by Cabinda at the end of the game?  It looks like his butt lands on Cabinda and nothing else other than the ball touches the ground.  At least that's how the replay in my head goes.

I thought so too.  But Barrett stopped, too, unless the whistle blew.

I was just plugging our schedule into my calendar and noticed that the Tue, Dec 27th Northwestern game is scheduled for 3pm. Is that time correct? Tue @3pm during the break, they might as well hold that game in the IM bldg.

It was going to be a terrible crowd even as a 7pm game, so why not take ESPN2 at 3pm?

Well U2 is supposed to have a tour in support of their new album, though no one seems to know when that album is supposed to come out

I'm guessing Garth Brooks or Aerosmith of they really are having a farewell tour in 2017

Someone suggested Stevens could get minutes at 5.  Chambers just said "in a pinch" he could play there.

Does he anticipate trying to fill the now-open spot in the 2017 class or save it for 2018?

Frazier is already penciled in as the starter while Jrue Holiday is away from the team for the first month or so.  His performance so far has only solidified that.

They actually put him on the rebounding block on FTs with two taller guys off the block.

Frazier sat the entire 4th quarter, as did most starters.
