Dontrelle Inman: 'I thought I was in'
Trailing by four points, Virginia faced third and goal from the Boston College eight yard-line late in the fourth quarter Saturday. Cavaliers quarterback Marc Verica rifled a pass toward the back of the end zone, and wide receiver Dontrelle Inman made an acrobatic catch. Inman fell to the ground and was ruled to have landed out of bounds, negating the reception.
Virginia Coach Mike London said Inman told him he had landed on a Boston College defender that was half in-bounds and half out of bounds. But London said Inman -- who finished with seven catches for 96 yards -- was adamant that the ball landed in bounds.
"I looked down and I didn't know if my feet were in bounds, but I thought I was in," said Inman, who tried to come down with his left hand in the end zone. "It was a crazy moment."
The play was reviewed, and the original call was upheld.
On the following play, Virginia placekicker Robert Randolph missed a 25-yard field goal attempt wide right. The Cavaliers did not get into scoring range again and ended up losing the game, 17-13.
