BIG (L)EAST OFFICIATING

So the big hubbub about the PAT call in the Syracuse / Toledo game has got me thinking about a few things. First, it's a shock because during our departure from the Big Least, BC didn't get a single call for them, even at home. Those same officials tried their damnedest to help anyone we played. How come 'Cuse gets the call?

Second, is there not a better way to call the easiest call in the game "is it good"? Can't the officials take a lesson from their hockey brethren and install some sort of system that indicates when the ball passes the plane of the goalposts? A loud siren goes off when its good? I can see it now, the ball goes in and the uprights light up like a Vegas slot machine when your grand mom hits penny slot jackpot. The Darth Harrington's "Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man" pops up in the end zone? Even UConn grads can figure out if that's good or not.
