SHARE Pylon touchdown fallout: Big Ten commissioner Jim Delaney says ruling was ‘unacceptable’

Looks like we were not alone in our disbelief that Michigan was awarded a touchdown when they shouldn’t have been in Saturday’s game against Michigan State.

From the Detroit Free Press:

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said the decision by a replay official to award Michigan’s Brandon Minor with a touchdown against Michigan State on Saturday, overruling the on-field referee’s call, was not acceptable. The people in the replay booth made a mistake, Delany said while meeting with reporters at the conference’s basketball media day Sunday. It wasn’t a mistake of judgment; it was a mistake of an application of the rule. They applied the wrong rule and they applied it improperly.
