During the SEC Coaches Teleconference on Wednesday, Ed Orgeron was asked about the CMU game when officials placed the ball on the wrong 45-yard line, which shorted the Tigers 10-yard.

Orgeron acknowledged that it happened and said the coaches should have caught it.

My coworker was right, y’all bitch about anything you can find, win or lose! You would think that at some point you’d learn BUT y’all don’t!

Bruh, they completely F*cked up that call. Obviously we won handily. It could have been a bigger deal though had the game been tighter. You got on here just to bitch about us bitching. lol

Is it that hard to have a nerdy student worker just keep track of ball placement? Like $12 an hour for 4 hrs a week... surely we can afford that.

There are limits to the number of people allowed to communicate with the team and coaches and players. If that were not the case, you could pay one particular person to watch for which down it is (their only job), one person to make sure the ball placement is correct (or at least not disadvantageous), one person to watch each position on offense and defense to pick up signals during the game. One person to watch the signal callers from the other team. One to watch the position coaches from the other team to pick up anything helpful. One person to watch the snap count and get a good prediction. The teams with all the money would have an unlimited number of minimum wage staffers watching every moment of the game for an advantage. NCAA put a nix on that stuff.

PeleofAnalytics: you would think maybe the coaches could handle more tasks while watching the came. can't be that hard to pay attention to details while guiding the team to a potential win/loss.

The commentators VERY MUCH caught it immediately for those of us not in Tiger Stadium last Saturday night.

$12 million dollar coaching staff and this happens. My 13 year caught it during the game, but this staff didn't. Smh

Shame neither you nor your "13 year" can coach, nor do anything else to help LSU win football games.

Sid makes fun of my typo, but used a triple negative. A rare feat.

It’s this level of attention to detail that gives me every confidence in Coach Eaux

the commentators caught it. I’ve always thought in instances of replay and for things line this, one person on staff should be listening to the broadcast of the game. Do the coaches always know when the DB that just got hurt is being replaced by a true freshman who is taking his first snap, so they know the replay may show a mistake as quick as the broadcast guys, etc.

it's an assumption to say the commentators caught it. Probably one of their staff caught it or someone back at headquarters.

Just like in 2009 when bama faced 4th and 6 LSU runs into punter, a 5 yard penalty, ref marks it off first down bama.

Yeah... that is not what happened in 2009. LINK 4th & 6 at 50 (9:18 - 4th) LSU penalty 5 yard roughing the kicker accepted. 4th & 1 at LSU 45 (6:58 - 4th) Mark Ingram rush for 2 yards to the LSU 43 for a 1ST down.

It’s really hard to fathom how every person possible that should have caught this all missed it - coaches, players and refs alike.

Oh let me make a comment on the ref mishap I didn't even notice. LOL

I mean, maybe if it was coming on a field change at the end of a quarter or something, but just a first down play? Almost takes effort to screw that up.

How come none of the players raised holy hell? Are they that overwhelmed with getting the next play in?

You ever watch the Jordan Jefferson Les Miles offense?

No excuse. How can not one coach on the field or in the booth not see that? Being an inexperienced coordinator is not excuse. Or are they so overwhelmed in the booth that they can't pay attention.

Whether or not he should have caught it we can debate all day. But I do we think we all agree most coaches would have caught that.

On the field, I could see the mistake, but SOMEONE in the booth should have noticed it.

Same day refs lost track of the downs and made Penn State punt on what should have been 3rd down. Stuff happens all the time, but this is bad...

I mean frick, our coaches have a lot of shite going through their head and have responsibilities that shouldn’t have to include , “make sure the refs spot the ball correctly “
user avatar
Tigerpride1833 months
I don’t understand how a ref and chain gang don’t catch it after they have to write the yard line down for the challenge

Good head coaches and staffs don’t miss that!
