Big Ten to Ohio
Last week the Big Ten told
Ohio State that the refs in the Ohio State vs. Illinois game should have a
reviewed a fumble by the Illini that was ruled down by contact. Illinois went on to
score on the drive and eventually won the game 28-21.
was obvious during the game that this was a fumble; it should not have taken 8
months for the Big Ten to admit that their refs made a mistake. There must be
something going on behind the scenes, the Big Ten would not make this announcement
unless someone at Ohio
State was asking about
is that this play could have affected the outcome of the game, as the ball was
recovered by the Buckeyes inside their own ten yard line. The Illini punched it
in on the next play and won the game by seven points by controlling the ball in
the fourth quarter and running out the clock without a reason to score.
