I'll only add that the so called error of omission was about judgment; and wherever we have mere mortals at work, we'll be witnesses to less than perfect judgment. Only ONE man need exercise less than perfect judgment for it to have adverse impact on the game.
On the other hand, the error of commission was about rules misapplication and misinterpretation. On any given play, only one man needs to fully know a particular rule to ensure that the rule is thus applied correctly in response to such a given play. And so the Ivy League is hard pressed to countenance rules based mistakes-afterall, they're paying seven, eight or nine individuals per event to steer clear of them!

Thank you for the kind words, Michael.

In the best tradition of Calvin doing primary research while the rest of us bloviate and pontificate, here is some language from Page 5 of the 2019 NCAA All Divisions "Instant Replay Coaches Manual."

Limitations on Reviewable Plays
ARTICLE 7. No other plays or officiating decisions are reviewable. However, the replay official may correct egregious errors, including those involving the game clock, whether or not a play is reviewable. This excludes fouls that are not specifically reviewable.

So the Ivy League office and even Erin McDermott, who in all her unsolicited graciousness kicked the game day officials while they were down, should really stop criticizing the referees.

According to the NCAA rules manual, the replay official essentially has what amounts to a "in the best interests of the game" Get Out of Jail Free card to "correct egregious errors" that he believes have affected the game.

I think that's what the guy on Saturday in Princeton Stadium thought he was doing.

Seems to put a new light on the subject. Surprised no one has cited this rule.

Also answers the question of why the booth was solely cited in the Ivy statement, which seemed oversimplistic. No matter the immediate chaos onfield (and it was significant) the booth review was both 1) the ONLY possible source of reviewing an unreviewable call and 2) SOLELY capable of changing it, whatever anybody else thought or not.

I do wonder whether that was really the literal intent of writing the rule, but that sure seems to be precisely what it says.
