When is the last time ASU got breaks from the Pac-12 referees, whenever they play the Ducks??? I remember in 2000, ASU lost to Oregon 55-56 in overtime, Bruce Snyder decided to go for two points and the win in overtime, an Oregon defender had a hold of one of Todd Heap's arms on the pass to win the game...no penalty and Oregon wins the game.
In 2015, ASU dominates the Ducks statistically, but Oregon benefits from a replay in which Oregon's receivers foot appears to clearly hit down with his toes/ front of the foot, out of the back of the end zone...call is an Oregon touchdown. Later in the same game, Oregon's defensive end jumps offsides, which is evident to everyone in the stadium, other than the Pac-12 referees, and Mike Bercovici throws deep (figuring he had a free play), Oregon intercepts...no flag. The Ducks win the game in 3 overtimes 55-61.
In 2018, ASU is making a second half comeback against Oregon in Autzen Stadium. The Sun Devils, who control their own destiny in the Pac-12 South, score a touchdown to make the score 29-31. The Sun Devils go for 2 and the tie, Frank Darby appears to get his left foot down, just inside the back line of the end zone, he's called out of bounds. It's close, it should be replayed, because it's a HUGE call in terms of determining who might play in your Pac-12 Championship Game. The play is NOT reviewed. Coach Edwards asks the referee on the ASU sideline, why are you not going to review that 2 point conversion play? The answer he got was the referee in the back of the end zone said he was confident in his call. Well, how many referees have been confident in their calls, and have had them overturned by replay? The answer is many/ a lot.
So, you claim that ASU will not receive any beneficial calls when playing Oregon on Saturday night, I say, WHAT'S NEW. Go Sun Devils!
