    RANT/College Officiating

    I know this isnt the Sports section,BUT here goes:
    .
    What is it with the SEC officiating crews??Are Big 10,PAC 10 etc.having the same problems???I wouldn't know,I dont really watch them.All season they have been making ridiculous calls and ignoring serious ones."He twitched-5 yards,"that face mask take down that sent your player to the locker room???musta been incidental contact!WTF,and they are a very closed society.If you complain,they fine you 30 thousand dollars(ask the Fla.coach),yet when they are found to be "incorrect" they get a hand slap.
    .
    This is the U.S. and the last time I checked it was still a democracy,coaches should be able to point out ,IN PUBLIC, calls that can /do cost them games! Tonight,I will be the first to admit LSU played like crap,However,when your man intercepts a ball,his toes dig a divot in the dirt IN BOUNDS,and the ref says incomplete,and the announcers (both radio and t.v. ) say ruh roh bad call,well if I can see it,they can see it etc.,why cant the replay official see it????Broken equipment again?????(last weeks LSU game!),gimmie a break here,the SEC needs ,at the end of this season to fire,uncerimoniously EVERY official they have and retrain someone that loves the game.They than need to check the finances of those fired officials.A lot more is at stake other than my "rooting" for my team.These kids entire livelihoods are at stake as well.

    RANT OFF.

    Bama was moving the ball at will in the second half. That call was not a game changer. That call actually kept Ingram from scoring a TD.

    The scoring was 21-8 in favor of Bama in the second half. If that is not enough, look at the above linked stats.

    Wasn'T necessarily talking about this particular game.This has been going on all season long,throughout the season to other teams as well.I merely pointed out a fer instance as these are the games I am more familiar with.
