It was a tough pill to swallow for Wisconsin Badgers players, coaches and its fanbase after the referees overturned what would have been a game-winning, one-yard touchdown reception from redshirt senior Joel Stave to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Jazz Peavy.

Citing not completing the process of the catch, the pass was ruled incomplete. Wisconsin would have two other chances at the end zone but failed to convert, leaving the Badger faithful stunned on Senior Day with a 13-7 loss at Camp Randall Stadium.

Many current and former players, as well as media, weighed in on what appeared to be the come-from-behind, game-winning catch, then no-catch.
