Top 5 screw jobs in LSU history


In the spirit of the "were we robbed" threads, I figured we can list them here. I'm sure LSU has gotten their share of breaks along the way, but I'll save that for another day. My list includes:

1. USC 1979 - those USC linemen moved early and it should have wipped out the facemask call. It should have been 3rd and 20 with less than 3 minutes remaining.

2. Indiana 1987 - Bobby Knight should have been ejected in the 1st half for punching the phone. After that, the refs were intimidated. Woodside kicked Alford's arse until they fouled him out using bone crushing double screens.

3. Auburn 2006 - This was a bagman game from beginning to end. Pick any of several plays. This game flat out sucked.

4. Arkansas 1992 - Oliver Miller knocks Shaq flat on his back at the buzzer in a tied game, with the SEC title on the line. Arkansas mugged LSU the entire 2nd half. The Shaq play was just the icing on the cake.

5. Alabama 2009 - Peterson interception was the ultimate, but there were many other plays. JJ's 1st down that wasn't. JJ gets speared by a player launching himself...no call. 4th and 6 and LSU jumps...5 yard penality, but Bama gets a 1st down.

There are others such as Auburn 2004 and the hidden ball trick by Irvine, but this is my top 5 bitch list.

Whatever year it was we lost because the refs called that stupid penalty that gave Aubbie a second shot at the PAT or FG.

re: Top 5 screw jobs in LSU history


that's a pretty solid list.

UT loss in 59 kept us from winning 2 in a row.

As far as that Arky game, it was the icing on the cake for Shaq's last season. The SEC was clearly not giving a shite if he wound in traction after his LSU career. You can pick a number of games in Shaq's last two years that were horribly called.

I remember UT upsetting us one year and they were throwing shoulders and elbows into their screens.

That is a big one. If you see the film of that play, it's just flatout bad.

Yeah, but we aren't going anywhere special this year. I've seen worse screw jobs in Lexington. Hell this year the 6 man on the court deal was an officiating joke.

That goes down in my book as one of the most fantastic plays in LSU history.

Unfortunately it wasn't. BUT IT WAS!

Jerry Stovall fired after a decent 1st season

Shaq goes pro early because nobody in SEC stripes will blow a whistle when he's fouled.

Nick Saben resigns on Christmas to prove he can coach in the pros..
thanks Nick...Merry Christmas


Alabama still goes to BCS championship game after losing at home.

Haha. No doubt, but it did seal Dinardo's fate and we know what happened after that. We've beaten those bastards so many times that if anyone deserves a bone it's them.
