Some more OSU aftermath

The Pac-10 announced today that the review of the officiating in the Washington-Oregon State game on Saturday continue today.
“We will receive the so-called ‘coaches’ tapes’ today which will allow us to observe the actions of all of the officials throughout the play on which OSU’s Yvenson Benard was ruled to have fumbled at the goal line. We need that information to allow us to conclude our review,” the statement quoted Pac-10 comissioner Tom Hansen as saying.
Washington returned the ball to near mid-field and the ball was snapped for the next play before the game was stopped for review by the instant replay officials.
Hansen indicated an additional announcement would be made when the review had been completed.
ON THE VERY LAST PLAY: A few of you mentioned to me that OSU quarterback Lyle Moevao never appeared to down the ball on the final play and that the Huskies could have picked it up and run it in.
OSU coach Mike Riley said on the Pac-10 conference call today that Moevao didn’t down the ball because the referee blew the play dead.
“He blew it before Lyle took a knee,” Riley said. “He was buying a little time before anybody came to him but the referee blew the whistle so the play was dead.”
RILEY ON THE EJECTIONS: Riley also again protested the ejection of cornerback Brandon Hughes, who he said was merely retaliating after UW’s Ryan Tolar got into it with OSU safety Al Afalava, the defender who had hit Jake Locker.
“Our message (to the team) on that is we were very disappointed and our guys know we don’t in any way want retaliation,”’ Riley said. “That’s where you get caught, and sometimes it’s not fair. But that’s tough. That’s basically our message that it takes a bigger man to walk away when you are going to do something that hurts your team.
“I thought we had two ejections that were retaliation, and that’s a shame that we couldn’t step away from that. And we had one I don’t think was right. Brandon Hughes got ejected and he never threw a punch. He got in the middle, number 65 was trying to tear Al Afalava’s head off and Brandon stepped in and straight-armed him away from Al, so that was my take on it.”
