ted decision to show France defender

nk, they should go no-huddle rigSOUTH BEND, Ind. Joel Castro Pereira Jersey . -- Ara Parseghian still bristles 50 years later at the notion No. 1 Notre Dame played for a tie against No. 2 Michigan State in one of the most famous games in college football history.The only play that we ran that would be suggestive of going for a tie was the last play of the game, the 93-year-old coaching great said.The Irish were without their top running back, quarterback Terry Hanratty had a separated shoulder after being hit by defensive lineman Bubba Smith, several other players were injured and backup quarterback Coley OBrien was ailing. Notre Dame didnt throw a pass in the final six plays and ran a quarterback sneak on the final play, leading to criticism of Parseghian.The Irish, who beat No. 10 USC 51-0 a week later, were named national champions by The Associated Press and in the coaches poll, while the Spartans, whose season was over, finished No. 2. Michigan State was declared national champions by others.Its been 21 years since college football had its last tie, so todays players and many fans might wonder how any game that ended without resolution could be so memorable. But they are. And they served as linchpins in many an argument over who was best, too.That 1966 game has been described as the Game of the Century, as was another Notre Dame tie , a 0-0 game between top-rated Army and the second-ranked Irish at Yankee Stadium in 1946. The Irish finished No. 1 both times while their undefeated opponent finished No. 2 in the AP poll -- the only two times thats happened. In 1953, top-ranked Notre Dame fell to No. 2 following a 14-14 tie with No. 20 Iowa in a game where two players were accused of faking injuries to stop the clock at the end of both halves to score. Maryland won the title that season with the Irish No. 2.Other famous ties include fourth-ranked Michigan tying No. 1 Ohio State 10-10 in 1973, No. 1 Texas holding on for a 15-15 tie with No. 3 Oklahoma in 1984 and a game in 1968 that led the Harvard school newspaper to run the famous headline Harvard Beats Yale 29-29.Without an outcome, the debate of who the better team was lasts forever, said Kent Stephens, historian at the College Football Hall of Fame. The teams will always debate who was better Michigan State or Notre Dame? Its a question that remains in some peoples minds unresolved.Most of todays players werent alive when the last tie was played and find a game with national championship implications ending without a winner incomprehensible.I couldnt imagine that, Michigan State linebacker Riley Bullough said. I think the fans would be even more upset probably than the players, because theyre crazy down there and up here.Notre Dame left tackle Mike McGlinchey said it would be frustrating.That would absolutely drive me in insane. It was 1 versus 2, and the game ends in a tie, he said. I dont know if Id be able to stomach that one.Michigan State defensive back Demetrious Cox said hes not sure he could let a game end in a tie.We might meet somewhere else. We might play in the parking lot or something, he said.Former Oklahoma coach Bud Wilkinson, working as a color commentator at the 10-10 game, said in the closing seconds of the broadcast : If the game does end in a tie, Chris, it makes you feel they ought to have an extra period in college football.Those who played in those games said ties were just accepted.There was no discussion about overtime. A tie was a tie, said Terry Brennan, who played in the 0-0 tie against Army.Not going for a tie had its consequences. In the 1984 Orange Bowl, top-ranked Nebraska cut No. 5 Miamis lead to 31-30 with 48 seconds left on a 24-yard touchdown run by Jeff Smith on fourth and 8. Former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer remembers watching on television and seeing Nebraska coach Tom Osborne call for a two-point conversion.Im saying, `Tom, dont do this, You were No. 1 going in. If its a tie, you dont lose the national championship, Switzer said.Osborne, though, says that is simply conjecture.I remember the controversy over the 10-10 tie with Notre Dame and Michigan State, and the idea of one coach or the other settling for a tie, I dont think I would have voted for a coach who had a chance to win and settle for a tie, he said.Stephens, the college football historian, said he thinks todays FBS overtime is contrived because it eliminates field position from strategy.I dont think it really and truly reflects the abilities of the teams with this overtime system, said Stephens, saying he prefers ties.Most, though, prefer overtime.I think that its better to declare a winner, Brennan said You want to win. You dont want to be tied.----AP Sports Writers Eric Olson in Omaha, Nebraska, and Noah Trister in East Lansing, Michigan, contributed to this report.---AP college football site: Morgan Schneiderlin Jersey . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste.

GENEVA -- The goal of helping referees with video review to make decisions at the 2018 World Cup has been facing key tests at FIFA headquarters.Two systems among the 11 in talks to win the World Cup contract were undergoing trials this week during training sessions with Europes candidates to referee in Russia.An idea met with a skeptical response when then-FIFA President Sepp Blatter presented it in 2014 has support from his successor, Gianni Infantino -- even if Blatters idea of NFL-style challenges by coaches looks unlikely to survive.It is not certain that video assistance referees, or VARs, will be approved in time for the World Cup.Still, history was made on Wednesday with a first significant intervention by video review at a Dutch Cup match. Willem II player Anouar Kali was sent off for fouling an Ajax opponent one minute after the referee initially showed a yellow card.Here is how FIFA is moving to give top-level referees the kind of help that is standard in American sports leagues:---THE REQUIREMENTSFIFA wants video review only for potential clear errors in four situations: goals being scored, penalties being awarded, players being sent off and cases of mistaken identity.It needs a technology system to help VARs and the referee communicate quickly without spoiling the games flow.Massimo Busacca, FIFAs director of refereeing, believes it should take not take more than five, six seconds to review an incident.If we need one (camera) angle more, of course it can take two seconds more, Busacca told The Associated Press.In most situations, play has naturally stopped and review time will not disrupt the flow.All involved agree that calling back play to impose a decision not initially taken is the biggest challenge for FIFA and its rule-making panel, known as IFAB, which must give final approval.---THE TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMThe DreamCatcher system developed by Evertz Microsystems of Burlington, Ontario is among FIFAs options. It has already been proven in NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL games.This week at FIFA, two DreamCatcher operators worked in a windowless portable cabin next to the hedges lining the soccer bodys compound.Two banks of screens -- each to be monitored by one of two VARs, helped by a technician -- take feeds from cameras around the artificial turf pitch that flanks FIFAs offices.The largest wide-screen TV above the desk shows a live game feed. Two smaller screens at desk level show several angles of the action at a slight delay, allowing the VARs to take a quick glance at an incident. The VAR can ask to zoom in anywhere on the split-screen images. Each World Cup match has at least 30 cameras, but too many angles can slow a decision.Though the NBA and MLB centralize review operations in one location, FIFA would likely want each VAR team in a truck or booth at each of the 12 stadiums in Russia.FIFA had sset a two-year timetable and wants a decision by IFAB by March 2018. Timothy Fosu-Mensah Jersey. This has been the most thorough review of the leagues we have worked with, DreamCatcher project manager Nima Malekmanesh said.---THE REFEREES BOSSSix seconds. In that time, Busacca wants his officials to know if they must change a clear mistake.That will require expert analysis and communication skills from the VAR, who Busacca believes should also be a FIFA-list official.Absolutely. If he is not the same level, how can he change the decision of the referee? said Busacca, who suggests video review could be a rarity at World Cups with only the best referees taken from each continent.If you have a top referee, one situation every four or five games, he said.Busacca insists video review cannot compromise the personality and football understanding of his officials, and he is no fan of letting coaches challenge decisions.Never lose the authority of referees, never take it out, he said.---THE REFEREEBjorn Kuipers supports video review within clear limits.You need a VAR which you can trust, said the referee from the Netherlands. If you dont have a VAR on the same level, it will be difficult.He foresees the two video reviewers joining a referees two assistants and fourth official as part of a regular match team from the same country, speaking their native language.The communication has to be very clear, very short, said Kuipers, who worked the 2014 Champions League final before going to the World Cup in Brazil. We have 10 seconds or 12 seconds if we want but its not good for the game.Kuipers was granted 10 seconds earlier this month when Italy hosted France in Bari, and he made a key video-assisted decision to show France defender Djibril Sidibe only a yellow card for fouling Daniele De Rossi. The Italy midfielders teammates wanted a red card.Players like it when they got confirmation, Kuipers said, referring to that outcome.---THE FIFA MANAGERAs FIFAs lead official for technological innovation, Johannes Holzmueller oversaw the process of approving goal-line technology and picking the GoalRef system for the 2014 World Cup.Holzmueller visited the U.S. in February to hear from pro leagues about their experiences with video review.The 11 contenders in talks with FIFA also include American firm XOS Digital and Hawk-Eye, the British system used in Amsterdam on Wednesday.The technology works, and FIFA must find a clear protocol for feeding information to referees, Holzmueller said.Coaches challenges could lead to stoppages to tactical reasons, and requiring referees to check images on a tablet computer also appears to be slow.We have to look at, `Does it improve the game and not just refereeing?
