You were right....sooooo much better.

Michael Dyer's tackle in the 4th quarter of the BCS National Championship was an extremely close call, but the refs allowed it to continue before blowing it "dead" - and then it was reviewed via instant replay. Meanwhile, Cam Newton was sacked in the 1st quarter and clearly fumbles - but the referees blow the play "dead" immediately and there was NO review of the play at all?!

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I asked my father this question and he reminded me of the "Punt, bama, punt" game which he was in attendance at.
Personally for me it would have had to either be Brady coming back on us during that Orange Bowl (more of a drive than a play); or Trent Richardson dropping that easy touchdown in the 2010 Iron Bowl. He catches that ball and AU's national championship hopes would have never happened. No matter how good Cam was, he wouldn't have come back from that.
Matt Flynn hit Demetrius Byrd on a last second touchdown pass to lift LSU over AU. Jerraud Powers is in perfect position, but never gets his head around to find the ball. I know Powers wishes he had that one back.
!998 Michigan State punting out of their own end zone already down by 19 points. A short punt that would have given the Buckeyes great field position hit Nate Clements in the back, Sparty recovered and momentum swung becoming a huge snowball ending OSU's quest for the National Championship. That team was loaded at every position. The big orange "T" on the side of Tennessee's helmet was short for "Thank God we didn't have to play the Buckeyes".

Good days, bad days --- always a Buckeye. Time to begin the assault on the 2014 BCS National Championship
That was definitely OSU's best team during the BCS era.
That's a pretty strong assumption, since Michigan was still down by 4 when that happened. The game would've been at best a toss up, so I don't know how you could say Michigan would have won the game if that didn't happen.
Mine would be Roy Hall jumping on Ted Ginn on the opening kickoff return in the 06 NC and breaking his foot. I doubt it would have affected a 27 point beat down, but I'm just curious to see if it would have made any difference. He was the only receiver on that team that demanded safety help.
We had all the momentum and I have no doubt we would have won that game.
Mark Ingram's fumble in the 2010 Iron bowl - yes, i know, Cam was superman, but Ingram scores there, and that's one more he has to overcome which pushes the odds up to Bama's favor.
Yep that one as well in that game. That play and Trent dropping that pillow in the end zone were two huge one's in that game. Barron getting burned on that deep pass as well.
I still haven't gotten over losing that game even after winning the natty last year.
i still don't know how you guys lost that game. That team was probably more talented than the 95 and 96 teams that we upset.
i think you need to try again. usc beatdown osu 35-3 and beanie wells would not have made a difference with rey malaluga, clay matthews and brian cushing roaming around back there

i specifically stated that it wouldnt change the outcome of the game and i was more disappointed my favorite player was hurt on a meaningless play..
yes you are right.. no way a 1st round pick (even after being hurt his senior season) would have affect on a football game..
maybe you should try again..
I'm certainly no USC fan but he wouldn't have a 32 point affect on the game. I don't even know the game that he's talking about but if you lost 35-3, Jim Brown wouldn't have saved you.
I wouldn't say he would be the difference, but having a player like that changes the whole complexion of the game. It is correct to say that Wells would not have scored 5 TDs probably on his own, but he probably makes the passing game more effective and extends a handful of drives to change field position and give USC less touches.
I still think that USC team was better, but losing a player like that hurts more than just losing the production he would provide.
You read my mind.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Not that I am a BC fan, but I would change Flutie's Hail Mary TD pass....I am tired of hearing about it
I get what your saying, but that is one hell of a complexion. I think you know I'm not saying that USC would have still scored 35 and Beanie would have had to make the 32 point difference single handedly.
I'm saying that if we didn't have Eddie Lacy against Ole Miss would it have really changed the outcome? 32 points is a straight ass whipping and a RB isn't going to change the outcome of a game "that" much.
2010 when Wisconsin's punter Brad Nortman ran for 17 yards on 4th down when Iowa could have gotten the ball back and secured the win. Iowa hasn't been the same team since that game.

Mark Ingram's fumble in the 2010 Iron Bowl that was poked out from behind and rolled down the sideline for 20 yds into and out of the endzone, resulting in a touchback for AU.
We would have more than likely scored something on that drive and probably wouldn't have lost, and that woulda been the end to that Cammy Cam shite!
There haven't been any plays in my tenure as a PSU fan that would've changed a season.
I would change a play for the Yankees though, mike mussina deserved that perfect game in 01'. Fucking Carl Everett.

the guy at the airport thought it did ....that is untill the farmlanders lambasted him while drowning in 2010's delusional aberration
Not sure if mentioned but I'd say Bo Jackson's career ending play against the bengals. I saw it live and like everyone else I thought it was nothing major....simply a travesty.
1980 Ga vs Fl, Run Lindsey Run,Still makes me sick.
to PSU fans' credit, as Bama was running off the field into the tunnel, PSU fans were cheering for Bama's comeback and a lot were screaming to the Bama players that they had the game taken away from them.
Trailing Penn St. 34-7 at the start of the 4th quarter (after turning the ball over 6 times) the Tide mounted a furious comeback and closed the gap to 34-28....
