The ref made a judgement call on whether he was forced out by contact and ruled that he was. Replay confirmed he was touched. Whether or not we feel like he was forced out has no bearing, it's up to the official. The ruling stands.

The ref called it as he saw it within the rules. This is a judgement call made in a split second.

There was contact.. Until they come up with a better review on these controversial plays, the call stands!

if he was just touched, he had every right to go out and come back in. besides, check out 3:46 left to play, Moore gets his arm held right in front of the ref and there is no call. Would have been a touchdown for sure.

The cornerback did what he was taught to do which squeezed the receiver out. Reilly made a great effort by reestablishing himself inbounds and caught the winning touchdown.

To me it clearly shows the defender making contact with the receiver and in my opinion the defender was running along side of the Rielly at an angle that was forcing him out of bounds. Like everyone is saying Nebraska has had it fair share of shady calls. Good call, live with it MSU.

If you look at the replay from a different angle, which was never shown by ESPN because they didn't have it, I am guessing....It is clear he was forced out by the MSU player...it wasn't incidental contact at all and he even fell into Reilly . The Ref made the right call

it is a judgement call. when a defensive player squeezes the sideline "urging" the offensive player out of bounds. if it is ruled forced out of bounds and their was contact it is the correct call. Mich St fans won't like it but they got away with calls we didn't like too so yes, I feel it was right.

The trajectory of the MSU player at the beginning of the play appears to be angling the NU player out of bonds by slight contact.

It was a fair call. Every team has been screwed by a refs call at some point. (Anyone remember the last second added on for the Texas game a few years ago?) We've had our share of shady calls. Deal with it.

While it was harder to see from the tv angles, there were fans who had their camera phones shooting from the north end zone. The MSU guy clearly bumps Reilly off his route and o.o.b. Intended or not, contact is contact.

The defensive players contact changed the receiver's direction of running toward and into the out of bounds territory.

Who was in a better position to see the play (a judgement call), the referee watching from 10 yards away, or the television commentator relying on three angles that proved nothing definitive? And remember, there were still 17 seconds left in the game and the Spartans were reeling.

No. The review of the call was correct. Not reviewable but the call was incorrect. Glad we won!

the rule doesn't say he has to be forced out. It says he went out of bounds, and there was "contact". it was the correct call. No where does the rule say "forced"

I'll take the win, but didn't look to me like he was forced out. The referee has to make a split second call, so either way. If he calls it the other way is there enough to overturn it and call it a touchdown?

His call wasn't reviewable once they established that there was some contact. If he'd gone the other way, there also would have been no review.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!
