Bret Bielema after this game: "I've lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money or ratings. I won't be silent. I just saw it live"

In other words, ‘We didn’t lose because of coaching, nor effort, nor the other team, so it must be because the refs are dirty.’

If real, we still won’t know what the fine will be.

He's not wrong, Kevin Warren turned a corrupt B1G and made it far worse.
He's desperately trying to compete with the SEC and that means shitting on all the little guys of the league. Minnesota has been the bottom end of this many times and it will not get better, especially under Kevin Warren.

It's a league of o$u, scUM and ped state.

Come on, you are an underdog. You compete and see post 13 below and tell me in a crucial situation that's not a flag. Pretty obvious. I didn't see the game but he is not making that comment based on just one obvious bad no call....he was upset at halftime.
I have been there. It is real!

if it was any coach besides Bielema I would have some sympathy.

Absolutely correct. Warren needs to fire the Director of officials tomorrow. Find someone who will find new officials (not old men) who are young enough to keep up with the game and understands the rules.

That's illegal. The WR can't block or hinder the DB's path to the ball while the ball is in the air.

well he wasn't hindering anyone's path. But he was blocking. So could be I am unclear on the rule. A normal pick play is when the WR gets in the path of the defender and they run into each other. This wasn't so obvious to me. And I'm not sure that can be the rule. The defender gets to touch the offensive player within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage, why can't the offensive player touch him?

Even if within five yards, the DB cannot make contact with the receiver when the ball is in the air. Same for the offense. The receiver also cannot hinder the DBs path to the ball while in the air. All of that happened on that play.

I’m not saying there weren’t bad calls, because there were for both teams. It’s just a petty for Bielema to spout off when there were also other reasons for the loss.

What’s it like actually believing in crap like this? What has Warren done to make the BIG corrupt? I’m a long time season ticket holder of football, basketball, and hockey. I just don’t believe the deck is stacked against us. Stop playing the “little guy” card. It’s an even playing field and we need to step.

It’s illegal as was caught down field. He engages and blocks, and would also be a penalty just if he picked he intentionally but this is egregious
