Again, it’s not a game worth getting too deep in the weeds with, but I did watch most of the replay yesterday. Three bullet points:
- I reckon I’m in the minority on this, but I didn’t see anything that makes me change my mind about the targeting call on Moore. Which isn’t to say I think he was guilty of the penalty, just that he created too tempting a, er, target for the refs to ignore. I’m sure he’ll say the flag won’t change the way he plays. That’s fine, but don’t be surprised if the same situation generates the same result.
- On the other hand, the ruling that Herrera fumbled the ball on his interception was a complete joke, no ifs, ands or buts.
- I should have mentioned it in my Observations post, but I thought the play of the game was Aaron Murray’s 23-yard run that led to Georgia’s first touchdown of the second half. Aside from picking up the first down and keeping the drive alive, it energized the crowd and the team. Georgia would score four touchdowns after his run; ASU gained a total of 29 yards from that point on.
