One byproduct of spring football is that the bad calls come earlier, and this one’s a doozy.
Believe it or not, the call was upheld on review, because, why not. Eastern Washington lost the game, naturally, although not on the ensuing series, which left the Big Sky with a little egg on its face. And, boy, did the conference double down on it.
