That was horrific.
That was horrific.
I can accept the pass interference call but the personal foul was worse than the UGA celebration penalty. The guy was defending himself from being blocked.
I hope that the NCAA are not involved in investigating questionable calls. If they are then they will say that the poor officiating is due to Alabama's repeat offender status.
I had seen the PI call, which was a joke, but had missed the personal foul call. It is an even bigger joke...
"He was a leader, patriotic to the core, devoted to his players, and inspired by a winning spirit that wouldn't quit. And that's how he made legends out of ordinary people. He was a true American hero, and he was Alabama's own."

Just like after the UGA game these refs will be referring this coming week, and will not face any consequences and this will get even worse. Unless the SEC does something
SEC officiating has long been bad, but it really seems worse this year - we've already had two games where the horrible calls came late in the game and really could have had a big impact in the outcome. I've long been one that believes that teams can play 'through' bad officiating, but wonder what the answer is to fix this.
Maybe the SEC should allow coaches 2 challenges/game for challenging calls?

Yeah, it was bad, but we left too many points on the field. Should have won that game.
