Germany calls for more video referee interventions

  Germany calls for more video referee interventions After more than two months of testing video assistant referees (VAR) in the Bundesliga, the German Football Association (DFB) has ruled that video referees should intervene more often, even if the onfield referee did not commit an obvious error. "In complicated situations, in which the referee's decision cannot be classified as an 'obvious error', but where the video assistant has strong doubts about the validity of the decision, he must then immediately report it to the referee," said a DFB October 25 statement made public on Thursday by Kicker magazine.

Jim Harbaugh is throwing down the gauntlet for his struggling kicker.

Quinn Nordin came to Michigan as the No. 1 kicker in his high school class. And while he looked good early on in the season, he has struggled lately. The redshirt freshman has missed two extra points in the last four games, as well as a field goal in each of the last three.

Harbaugh wants to see Nordin do better.

“It is really simple: he has to make the kicks. It is a meritocracy. If it is not him, then we will give someone else a shot at it. That is what we are at,” Harbaugh said at his weekly news conference, via MLive.com.

Harbaugh also broke out an “iron jock” line for Nordin.

" Strap on the iron jock ," said Harbaugh , whose team will travel to fourth-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday (noon, Fox). "And kick the ball through the uprights." Shortly after Nordin missed a 31-yarder at Maryland, Harbaugh went over to his kicker and told him he was giving him one more shot.

“Strap on the iron jock and kick the ball through the uprights,” Harbaugh said of his message to Nordin.

The two had an exchange during the win over Maryland last weekend, with Nordin talking back to Harbaugh.

So why has Harbaugh been so hard on Nordin lately?

“I think anger is a powerful motivator,” Harbaugh said via the Detroit Free Press.

We shall see if Harbaugh’s tactics work.
