Post Haste: Controversial call helps sink Bobcat football; Incoming freshmen appear to be pretty smart

The delay of game call was pretty controversial.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Monday, Sept. 28, 2015:

Did you watch the Ohio University football game Saturday? It was a doozy.

The Bobcats’ 27-24 loss to the Minnesota Golden Gophers drew national media attention — and ire from some football fans — following an unusual penalty call in the game’s final moments.

Referees smacked the Bobcats with a delay-of-game penalty after Ohio’s kicker kicked the ball immediately following time-out called by the Gophers — a common practice used to rattle the kicker.

The penalty pushed Ohio kicker Josiah Yazdani out of range for a game-tying field goal, ultimately leading to a failed attempt at an absurdly long touchdown pass for the Bobcats.

SB Nation’s Rodger Sherman criticized the penalty, saying an increase in similar calls could be “bad for football.”
