After the most insane play to ever … EVER end a college football game at the buzzer of Miami vs. Duke on Saturday Night:
Still in shock. This 8-lateral Miami walk-off kickoff return to win is one of the most amazing endings you'll see. https://t.co/QWx8lm0CgD— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 1, 2015
The NCAA has suspended the officiating crew for the EGREGIOUS errors they committed while reviewing the play…
THIS JUST IN: ACC suspends on-field officiating crew, replay official & communicator for "series of errors" on final play of Miami-Duke.— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 1, 2015
ACC says official erred in not overturning ruling that Miami player had released ball prior to knee being down, which would have ended game.— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 1, 2015
MORE: Entire crew will be suspended for two ACC games after committing 4 errors on final play. pic.twitter.com/N7gwGLSyix— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 1, 2015
The part of the play that has the entire football world in upheaval is where a Miami player’s knee CLEARLY hit the ground before he was able to complete a lateral — thus, the game should have ended and Duke should have been awarded the victory immediately.
Miami, your thoughts?

Enough of this “we messed up”. If you really want to make a statement, just give Duke the win.
