Default The refs won the game...

I'm not much of a football fan. I like college ball even less. Furthermore, I'm not a big Texas sports fan. (My favorite football team is the one that beats the Cowboys.) But for some reason I ended up watching at least most of the national championship game between Texas and Alabama. The Longhorns were making a great comeback after their "going straight to the NFL quarterback" McCoy got hurt early in the game, and was replaced by a freshman. Repeatedly the referees refused to call blatant pass interference fouls, to the point that the announcers even said, "Well they really got away with one there", AND, they called absolutely petty and "fantom" fouls on Texas.

I didn't really care who won the game when I started watching it, but after seeing the clearly one-sided refereeing, I wish Texas had won. Tough way to lose the national championship - beaten by the refs.
