Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen discusses ASU fiasco
As far as the coach is concerned, his team got the short end of the stick when the officials seemed to lose control of the situation, allowing the clock to run out before the Badgers could attempt a game-winning field goal.
The Pac-12 released a statement about the ordeal, saying it has reprimanded the referees who were involved, but that does not change the outcome of the game.
The coach spoke about it all during his weekly press conference Monday, and here is some of what he said.
