Former LSU all-american cornerback Patrick Peterson posted this picture on Instagram of what clearly looks like him intercepting a pass from Greg McElroy that was intended for Julio Jones. The play was ruled an incomplete pass...

That just shows how Bama usually has gotten the calls, especially at home. That was OBVIOUSLY an interception. And not only that, but Bama has gotten the benefit of many non-calls for obvious holding/blocks in the back on offense over the years. It's no surprise with the SEC offices being in Alabama.

I was at the game and as much as I am disappointed in that call I also know that we didn't have a snowballs chance in hell even if we would have gotten that turnover. We were shutdown on offense at that point in the game and had nothing going.

"I'm not an AL fan, but it's clear what happened. High stakes game AT Bama w/ the final call made by a replay official who, at the time, had long-standing ties to Bama. He should've never been on the official's team in ANY capacity."

I agree with this 100%, but I want to hear what Alabama fans think.

I was at that game and a Bama fan sitting behind me was listening to the Alabama broadcast on the radio. During the review, she tapped me on the shoulder and told me the Bama radio people said it was clearly LSU ball.

This was a bad call, no doubt. McElroy and the boys sure caught payback in TS the next year.

I remember hearing a rumor that Slive was in the replay booth when this was being reviewed.

That call still pisses me off to this day! I think SEC officiating is sometimes bias or the refs have their pockets lined.

it's all about the SEC love affair with red unis...wonder if tOSU gets same treatment in big14?

And we still never got an explanation from the SEC about that call. If the roles were reversed, they would have called it a catch on the field and not even reviewed it.

Any Alabama fans care to chime in with an explanation? How can anyone say that wasn't a catch? It was an NFL CATCH, he CLEARLY had two feet in and the ball never moved from his possession.
