Georgia Gets 99-Yard Fumble Return TD After Georgia Tech Stuffed

Georgia took a 14-7 lead on Georgia Tech after this Yellow Jackets attempt to sneak across the goal line got stuffed and officials held their breath rather than blowing the whistle. But did Tech get the ball across the goal line? We've enhanced some video so you can see for yourself:

The ball appears and disappears a few times—watch in HD mode and look for Justin Thomas's hand and the stripes of the ball. You don't see it cross the plane, exactly, but it's pretty likely that it reached the end zone. Without conclusive evidence, of course, the call couldn't be overturned, and the Bulldogs touchdown stands. But should officials have blown the whistle?
