Karl Ravich just compared last night's foul territory pop-up to Bill Buckner's error.

I think you're right. Arkansas appears psychologically defeated after last night's game.

Son of Eli, over the course of this season's 34-game schedule, last night was the first time Arkansas had been shut out. Granted, the OSU pitcher was in a groove, but Arkansas did not play well.

By the way, I can't stand it when coaches talk about taking out a pitcher because of his pitch count in The Last Game of The Year. Why on earth would you pull a pitcher in complete control just because his pitch count is up there? He's got eight months to rest his arm.

Worse than Buckner's error because when Buckner made his error, the game was already tied.

Buckner's play was as routine as it gets. A little leaguer should have made that play.

Catching a foul ball over your shoulder is a lot harder than it looks. I could never do it at the high school level. The MLB players make it look easy, but it's not.

I think the right fielder should have called off his teammates and taken it. But he was also the furthest from the ball as well.

A heartbreaker. But sometimes the baseball gods aren't smiling on you....

As for game 3, the example I thought of was the 1985 World Series when Don Denkinger blew the call to give the Royals Game 6, and the Royals just pounded the Cardinals in Game 7.
