Great analogy to the Brett vs Martin situation. Lest anyone forget, the Royals protested the game and the AL commissioner upheld their protest. They resumed the game at the point of the incident and the Royals ended up winning the game.

Maybe I am being thick in the head on this issue, and I am not an attorney, but does everyone who has scrutinized the NCAA rules truly believe that the Surace timeout replay review situation actually constituted the need to “correct obvious errors that may have a significant impact on the outcome of the game.” How does anyone know that if the refs had seen Surace and awarded him the timeout in real time, that the result would have been different on the play in question?

Also, if this were the intent of the rules, why didn’t the replay official stop the UM-OSU game in the 4th Q last week when Harbaugh was frantically sprinting down the sideline calling timeout right before a 4th down play that OSU ended up converting to put them down only 7 mid-way through the 4th? It was obvious to everyone in the stadium that Harbaugh was calling timeout. But officials either didn’t see him or ignored him. And replay official did nothing.

It would be great to have an actual referee with rules expertise weigh in on this issue ie Mike Pereira type.

Ethics, sportsmanship and doing the right thing would have redounded to the great benefit of Harvard, Princeton and the entire Ivy League.

You may view the interpretation of the rule differently than Perry. I can respect that.

But I don't see how it is unethical, lack of sportsmanship, or doing the wrong thing thing when the refs followed a reasonable interpretation of the rule, as has been explained multiple times. The least you should do is explain how that is unethical or bad sportsmanship. To claim otherwise without articulating any logical argument is bad faith.

Are you going to assert that teams should always forfeit when they get a football call that is subject to interpretation? For example, on questionable pass interference call on final play of game? Or maybe on a final basketball shot when no foul is called on a go ahead basket?

Harvard should have conceded to Yale after the season finale.

Why not? It was a close game. There were some borderline calls.
