SEC officials are turrible. We've known this for ages.
This. They're too incompetent to actually be crooked. Let over 30 seconds run off the clock on a dead ball after the muffed punt in the Bama game last week. Seven on the field plus the replay guy...and the play was re...

On a positive note...I thought it was cool to have the "yell crew", or whatever they're called, passing out sunglasses and shakers to everyone at the top of the circular ramp between U4 AA and the SS student sections. The sunglasses were especially cool.
But why were they wearing UGA red???

All that makes sense to me. Good explanation.
But I still don't know how a seven member officiating crew, a clock operator, and the replay official could let 30 seconds go off the clock without noticing...especially the clock operator. I mean, aside from the normal ...

Actually, I think I agree. I understand the rule, and I think it's the same at all levels of football, but I've never understood the rationale. If the guy muffs the punt, it can't be advanced, but if he catches it cleanly and takes a couple of steps and gets ...

The play I am talking about was the muffed punt that the USM player picked up and took to the endzone. The guy picks the ball up, takes it 29 yards to the endzone, and even after the guy hits the endzone, the clock ran off another 20 seconds before it was ...

Probably not the biggest blown play from SEC officals yesterday in terms of impact on a game, but it makes the whole crew, along with the guy on the clock, look bad. The clock operator used to be one of the striped shirt crew, back in the day. Is there no communication betwee...

Now I think they'll go 6-6, that the must win game is now South Carolina, and that they'll win that one. Haven't been a bit impresse...
