It was a borderline call for a CFB. From a rule book perspective, The SCSU player was hit from behind and and went down awkwardly. That said, Jason surely did let up and the SCSU might have turned into it for added effect, but these days,the refs are calling it tighter than ever.
That was a bad call by the ref. Zuck eased up as he hit him. The ref. kept looking at the player laying there and called the effect not the check. It was clearly a 2 minute penelty.
From where I was sitting, I didn't see a attempt at easing off and once that hit was placed I knew he would get ejected for a boarding or a checking from behind. I don't know if he was trying to set the tone or what but he went about it the wrong way. I like Zucker and I hope he learned something from this.
After the Martin injury what did you expect?
Dumb hit by Zuck, but yes - you're right - after J-Mart's incident - this was a statement by the refs, period. There was a very similar check late in the game on a Denver guy, that could have easily been the same call but they let it slide. WTF??? Inconsistent reffing in my opinion. Kudos to the Huskies' guy on his acting skills, because he laid down long enough to make sure the call was made and that everybody saw him.... then he hopped up on his feet and skated away in a breeze.
As long as Todd Anderson is allowed to officiate, you will have poor, inconsistent officiating.
Forget all that. Any predictions on MSUM?? DU went 3-0-1 against them in the regular season - including a sweep in Magness Arena. The road to DU's 8th NCAA Championship started back in early October against the United States of America's National Under-18 Team. Here we are in early Spring of 2011 - and it's showtime!
