That's what he said: Charlie Weis

“I was letting them know that’s my right. As they tell you before the
game, If you need me, you tell one of the guys on the sideline to come
and get me. I have to be careful when I say this. I have Big 10
officials coming in this week again. But that game left a lot to be
desired. I’m not blaming the officiating for the game. But let’s start
with Armando. I watched that tape a hundred times this morning, okay?
Just like when I watched it when it happened, just like their two guys
that were standing right on top of the play when it happened. From what
I understand, the TV copy on top of it, I still haven’t heard anyone
tell me there’s any evidence of Armando stepping out of bounds.
The way I thought the rule is supposed to be, it’s supposed to be
conclusive evidence. I’m perturbed at that call.”

    to me i looked like the refees were a little biase.yes notre dame shot itself in the foot with penalties.how about calling allen for for 15 yard for putting his finger to his mouth in the reference of the form of “to b quiet” or the non call of a michigan player pushinh michael floyd back to the ground when he was trying to get up after being tackled or all the holding of tate by the corner back thru out the game by hooking his arm while reaching for the ball,or the so called holding by a lineman when a rusher is being blocked down to the ground

    Agree with the previous poster’s comments. Those calls were all bad – and all against the Irish. How often did big ND plays get called back for holding – pass to the tight end for s’thing like 72 yards – and the holding was very iffy. Michigan get called for holding ? Did their linemen never hold the whole game ? The sportsmanship penalty against Allen at the end was horrendous, and hugely consequential. If that’s a flag, then call a flag every time anyone ever scores a td & doesn’t just flip the ball to the nearest ref. Just seemed as if every big call went against the Irish, and they overturned a number of big Irish plays. Allen didn’t go OOB – the replay certainly didn’t show a clearly different perspective than the call on the field to overrule the onfield call of td.
