There is one of these moments every so often (see UConn/Temple, UConn/LV a few years back). It was clear to my tired eyes that the ball passed to the outside of the upright because it blocked the upright. I find it hard to believe that it could have been seen as anything but a missed EP but incompetence is everywhere.
Please stop comparing this to the Temple call... even if the Temple player had made the catch (he didn't have full possession of the ball till after going out of bounds) there was no video evidence available to the replay refs that showed both his foot and the ball in the same shot to overturn it. This time there is clear video evidence that should have been used to overturn the call.
The end zone view showed the ball deflecting to the left of the left upright. The sideline view was inconclusive (imo). Therefore, the replay official did not overturn the ruling on the field.
but there simply is nothing you can do.
