Props to Indiana’s Bill Lynch for the classic move of firing his gum down the sideline after the refs initially ruled on Donovan Warren’s interception that effectively ended the game. I had about the same angle from my seats as the ESPN cameras (a bad one), but I kind of understand Lynch’s rage.
"I couldn’t see," Lynch said. "Obviously, where I’m standing on the sidelines it looked like they both had it. That’s as far as I could go."
As far as where the gum ended up, I pored over photos from the game and found something strange on one IU helmet:
