Sucks that we're stuck with the VT game in DC. I'd much rather see Illinois/PSU.

You can start to understand how they miss things like USC's Ray Maualuga stepping out of bounds on his TD return against OSU:

College Football: No HDTV For Replays
The NCAA will test it on Thursday night.
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2008) -- High-Definition TV cameras. The NFL uses them for its instant replay program. But apparently they're too expensive for NCAA college football games.

The Los Angeles Times reports that this is the fourth season that the NCAA has used instant replay to determine controversial calls, but referees have had to watch the playbacks in fuzzy standard-def.

As the newspaper reports, college football fans at home can get a better view of the replay on their high-def sets than the refs.

However, the Times writes that the PAC 10 and NCAA will test high-def cameras for the first time this Thursday night in the game between USC and Oregon State. (Note: The NFL began using high-def cameras for instant replay during the 2007 season.)

"NCAA replay officials will for the first time be able to review plays in the same high resolution as the HD broadcast viewers at home," says a spokesman for XOX Replay Systems, a supplier of replay technologies.

A PAC 10 official says the HD replay systems have simply been too expensive, noting that the league spent about $100,000 per school four years ago to set up a standard-def system.

However, the Times notes that the league and NCAA could save some money by going to Costco and picking up a few HDTVs for significantly less.

Same here, you'd think we would get the Big Ten game.

BTW, in refernce to this week's thread title, Clausen cut his hair this week - he's back to the brillo-pad buzz cut.

Alas, for Saturday, there's only one game worth watching: Alabama at Georgia at 7:45 pm EDT on ESPN/ESPN-HD.

Wow, 21-0.... Should just batted that ball down instead of going for the INT.

They better make some crazy adjustments during halftime

This Oregon State team looked like a high school team against Stanford and Penn St., now they are moving the ball at will and shutting out USC. Un-be-lie-vable

well they got a TD on their opening drive

Oregon State needs to respond with some type of points in order to keep the pressure on

Wow, impressive game by Oregon State.

The wrong OSU won, though

I guess after the BCS title game in January we'll again have to suffer through Chris Fowler's now-annual crying about how USC could beat either of the two teams in the final game and that the system is broken because SC wasn't in the title game

Wow, I didn't even know this game was on last night. Woke up to see the score and was schocked. I thought USC was set for the entire season.
