For me it was kind of less than a feeling—I threw my hands up and my back cracked and my torso went tingly-numb again, just like last year’s Clemson game, just like a real Thirty-Something!
Sure, we’ve already seen it a million times, but not here yet—and not 12 times in a row and set to Boston’s “More Than a Feeling.”
Thank you again, Who’s Number 24… thank you.

I just noticed this, but someone (looks like #11, Chris Davis) could have easily been flagged for a late hit on Relf on that play. Admittedly, it would have been a ticky tack call, but man that would have been tough to take.

“Hooked On A Feeling” (the “ooga-chacka” version) would have been funnier…
Had that same thought, JD. But if you watch, that hit happens in practically every play of the college game. It’d clearly have been flagged in a HS game, and oddly enough there’s not a ton of that in the NFL. But in the college game it’s almost constant.
My wife called downstairs : ” How badly are you hurt”
I was screaming so loudly….
That “borderline-late hit” may have stopped Relf from scooting the ball a couple inches even after he was down, which — depending on the referee’s angle and judgment call — could’ve led to an incorrect ruling of TOUCHDOWN. And who knows if the breplay officials would’ve over-turned it. The amount of “indisputable evidence” required for a replay overturn seems to be somewhat subjective and varies widely among some replay officials.
