I have a suspicion that the initial statement out of the Ivy League office the Sunday after the P-H game was issued at Harvard's behest.

Bad calls are made every day in every Ivy League game in every Ivy League sport. Some of those bad calls affect the outcome of the game. Some of them also happen at the very end of the game. Some of them affect championships.

And yet, out of all the thousands if not millions of bad calls made in all the Ivy games over the decades, the Ivy League office issues a statement on a weekend morning about this one incident? As far as I can remember, this is absolutely unprecedented.

That's Harvard sway, baby. But they've shot their wad now.

The league office issued the statement because the call was unprecedented. I have not heard anyone say they can ever recall an official using replay to give a coach a timeout. Whistle on the field never blew and it sure looked like they only went to replay booth after Surace went nuts on the sideline and gestured up to the replay booth. Would love it if one person could cite a situation where a replay booth decision awarded a team a timeout. Was watching the Packers game yesterday and LaFleur tried to call a timeout right by a ref before ball was snapped and official did not give it to him. And nobody is saying Surace or Princeton did anything wrong during that situation. It was just an inexcusable call in this day and age.
