re: Analysis on Alabama and Tom Ritter - BengalBeaux
[quote]Do you have specific data for LSU and Alabama?[/quote] 2007 - Tom Ritter - LSU 41-34, This is when he first got our attention calling 14 penalties on the Tigers for 130 yards and nary a one on the Tide. There were also a couple key on the field calls made Alabama's way that were reversed in...

Analysis on Alabama and Tom Ritter - BengalBeaux
The whole officiating ordeal we seem to go through with Alabama and Tom Ritter (2007, 2009, and 2014) has been bugging the hell out of me, so much so, that I did some research thinking that it would reveal an Alabama - Tom Ritter connection. But that's not necessarily what I found. Here's a summat...

Official Officiating Tracking Thread - BengalBeaux
I'll preface by saying LSU primarily needs to look at LSU for not winning this game. The dropped passes, lack of QB development, and high school JV designed offensive scheme just to name a few of the problems. However, I'm also convinced there is consistent officiating bias for Alabama and I think...

re: Question about the bias of SEC refs - BengalBeaux
[quote]You are truly a poor debater.[/quote] There is no debate. My point has been made, you don't have nor will you ever have quantitative data to settle the question as to if SEC officiating in biased or not. You want to represent your point of view as more than an opinion; it is not. [quote]...

[quote]You ignore anything contrary to that point.[/quote] I've been looking for contrary evidence since 2006 in the way of the replay official ruling against Auburn.

re: Question about the bias of SEC refs - BengalBeaux
[quote]Replay has to be held to the standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt" in overturning calls, because if it wasn't, you would have these exact same arguements. If you could not - via video evidence - tell if a fumble was coming out or not before the runner was down, and the officials on the fiel...

re: Question about the bias of SEC refs - BengalBeaux
Wiki, I'm happy for you that you're excited about your stats class and are now trying to use quantitative analysis to answer this question, but here's the problem, not all answers can be obtained by quantitative analysis. In order to make any real determinations, you need to know what penalties...

re: Question about the bias of SEC refs - BengalBeaux
I think we got some calls in that game due to being #1 at the time and the SEC's best bet. But it's not chronic the way it is with Bammer and the Barn. I think Bammer and the Barn consistently get the calls, and yes, primarily because of the SEC Headquarters location....

[quote]However, the SEC offices in Alabama argument is stupid.[/quote]Really now. It's just stupid to believe that the offices located in the middle of Bammer/Barner country wouldn't affect the mindset of officiating. Think about the corporate world, doesn't the location of companies have an e...

re: Officiating crew this weekend??? - BengalBeaux
I don't know which head official is the light skinned black guy. While he and his crew irritate me because they call a lot of penalties, they do at least seem to call them equally on both sides; so, they might be alright. Of course, you know at Auburn anything going to the replay booth will auto...

re: LSU impression on McNeese turn out? - BengalBeaux
Impressive turnout. While I'm still not someone who feels LSU should be obligated to play in-state schools for our rent-a-wins, if we're going to play them, they need to at least sell out their ticket allotment. The showing by McNeese fans is quite refreshing after having Tulane and U-LaLa send un...

re: The Pot Calling the Kettle Black - BengalBeaux
Yep, Bug Eyes is aka Tom Ritter who's called every big Bammer game that's come up over the past few years. Unfortunately for the Bammers, he didn't call South Carolina. But I bet that didn't happen by accident; I expect Spurrier being the wiley "ole ball coach" he is specifically requested his...
