BE front office acknowledges officiating error w\Uconn unFair Catch

Big East acknowledges error

Big East associate commissioner John Paquette confirmed today that the conference has acknowledged an officiating error was made on the phantom fair catch by UConn punt returner Larry Taylor in Friday's win over the University of Louisville.

"We are acknowledging that an error was made and (Big East commissioner) Mike Tranghese deemed it serious enough to warrant action," Paquette said. "We do not make it public. Tom Jurich has been contacted and supports the action."

Taylor waved his right hand above his head before fielding a punt in Friday's UConn victory over Louisville, then as U of L's cover team and several Connecticut players slowed down in anticipation of the fair catch, Taylor ran with the ball and scampered 74 yards for the touchdown.

Officials said the play was not reviewable, though NCAA rules don't seem to prohibit it. The rule book does say, however, that any fair catch signal -- valid or invalid -- prohibits the receiving team from advancing the ball after the catch.

lol.

considering the magnitude of our game (not just BE implications, but NC implications as well), it's pretty sad they'll spend all this time on that UConn play but won't say **** about us.
