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.

Ask 1982 Penn State's Mike McCloskey if it was a legal catch.

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.

by the letter of the rule, it was the correct call. iintent or degree is not relevant. reilly went out due to contact, end of story. touchdown huskers

Any contact is contact. The rule doesn't say it has to be a hard push.

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.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).

Do you think Trev Alberts was correct to push for the coaching staff changes before season end?

The defense has made progress. The offense not so much. The real problem is Frost's dedication to Martinez. Adrian is a great guy, but his minuses exceed his pluses.

The production was there from those coaches. Better to make the decision then, so you can still have a positive impact with recruiting.

If you are not going to make new hires before the end of the season anyway, what was the purpose in firing them now? It will be interesting to see how the offense performs, but I can't see this as beneficial.
