How We Could’ve Prevented Jim Harbaugh’s Rant

Michigan v Ohio State

By now you know that Ohio State beat Michigan in the biggest game in the Big 10 in a long time (hang in there Spartans – we’ll be back). The game hinged on a fourth down and 1 to go play, in double overtime, that ended with Ohio State getting the first down (according to officials) – and then getting the winning touchdown on the next play.

But did Ohio State REALLY get the first down on that play? Somebody at CBS Sports thinks the case can be made that they did NOT.

Michigan’s Coach Harbaugh was “bitterly disappointed” with the officiating. And let the world know about it.

But is there any way we can prevent this kind of confusion in the future?

Yes. And tech writer Roger Groves, from has a great solution. He’s even coined the name of the controversy – “The Spot” – capitalized so it will live forever in sports history.

Here’s the story.
