Knee pads, turnovers and tackling woes highlight takeaways from TCU’s gritty win | The Star-Telegram

What was the deal with all the uniform violations Saturday?

2. Knee pads. Speaking of the officials, they were sticklers on knee pads. Multiple players on each side had to be sent off the field for uniform violations.

This is something that teams knew would be emphasized before the season with the NCAA’s new uniform rules requiring players have their midriffs and knees covered.

Patterson had more issues with his players than the officials for enforcing this rule.

“That’s the rules. It’s not like we haven’t been talking to them about it,” Patterson said. “What do they think? This is just some magical … we’ll just talk about it and we’ll just let you do what you want to do anyways? I mean, knuckleheads. I mean, jiminy Christmas, all of us.

“Gotta get longer pants, I guess. We got a week and a half to do that.”

Iowa State star running back David Montgomery hurt in loss to TCU | Des Moines Register

So many players were injured in what was a very physical game.

”... if you said one thing... that I probably am a little concerned about, (it’s) David,” Campbell said. “There’s no warrior that would want to be on the field more than that guy. We’re just going to have to play it day-by-day and see what it is. You and I both know he loves football. If he can play, he’ll play. And if he can’t, we’re fortunate to have some other guys there that we feel real confident in.”

Montgomery went down during the fourth quarter after a 5-yard rush. He never returned. It ended up being a big blow for Iowa State, which couldn’t extend the drive, was forced to punt in its own territory and gave TCU great field position. The Horned Frogs used the field position to set up a drive that ended with a go-ahead field goal.
