They didn't take an inordinate amount of time.

That's probably why they were reprimanded by their boss today. That's usually what happens when they do everything correctly.

quote:

Walnut Creek, Calif. -- Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott has reprimanded and taken additional sanctions against officials in Saturday night's Wisconsin at Arizona State game for failing to properly administer the end of game situation and act with appropriate urgency on the game's final play, it was announced today.

With 18 seconds remaining in the game, Wisconsin's quarterback ran the ball toward the center of the field, touched his knee to the ground and then placed the ball on the ground. There was initial uncertainty over whether the quarterback had taken a knee, given himself up or fumbled the ball. As a result several Arizona State players considered the ball live and a fumble, and attempted to recover the ball.

Neither the referee nor anyone on his crew moved with appropriate urgency to clearly communicate that the ball was to be spotted so play could resume promptly.

"This was an unusual situation to end the game," said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “After a thorough review, we have determined that the officials fell short of the high standard in which Pac-12 games should be managed. We will continue to work with all our officials to ensure this type of situation never occurs again."

Didn't look much different than the Clint Stoerner Arkansas fumble.
Play should have been reviewed though. That's what replay should be for.
Wisconsin player should not have left it up to any scrutiny though.

Where the hell does his knee touch the ground? It's not even close, he set the ball down. That's a fumble and Arizona State recovery.

Play should have been reviewed and if they were going to rule it as not-a-fumble they should have spotted it more quickly. The refs got reprimanded for the process, not the result -- final score was what it should have been.

When I saw the replay, that's what I thought. But, there are clear shots right before he sets the ball down where he knelt down. And people said it was clear on the field.
