I’ve kept my flag in my belt for worse.

Iowa st outplayed and out coached Memphis. Ferguson looked rattled due to dialed up Iowa St pressure..he didn’t know where the next blitzer was coming from. Unfortunately for the conference the better team won

Just turned on the Orange Bowl in time to see Richt touch an official not once but twice during some heated exchange on the sidelines. He only was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and 15. By rule he should have been ejected.

You missed an atrocious first half of officiating. SEC crew shining on The Big Stage

Understand but there is still no excuse. I see it even at the high school level. Officials are human and make mistakes which hopefully are rectified in real time. But we are getting to the point that people think that what they see on Sundays is acceptable behavior everywhere. I know at my level officials are quitting instead of taking the abuse from coaches and parents. It’s getting to the point that games are being limited due to lack of officials. Want to know what a college official makes? At most a few hundred dollars a game. No official except some NFLers have it as a full time job. At the college level everyone has real jobs. At the HS level you are basically getting gas money. Think it’s not difficult? Try it.

First off, it was a fumble replay that was blown.

Second I was an official when I was younger.

During the regular ACC season only 8 holding calls were called on Miami opponents. Either Richt is right or all those officials don't see it that way.

Mississippi State had a very good Bowl win over Louisville. If that doesn't sound like much, consider that they did it without Nick Fitzgerald, their quarterback. They went with the true freshman from Algiers who was shaky when he had to play vs Ole Miss.

That looked like a hold but then again it didn't look at all like a fumble early.

UCF just had a Pick 6 to extend their lead over Auburn to 14 points in the 4th quarter. watch them still somehow fail to get into the top 10 if they win

Meanwhile LSU... Who cares?

The refs negated a first down run on a tickytack call, even the pro-SEC announcers decried the non-penalty. If Auburn wins, it is totally a gift from the refs.

UCF joins conference partner Tulane as the two teams who go undefeated without a chance to play in one of the big bowls, let alone the national championship.

Really fun game to watch and it was no fluke UCF played great. Another big win for the AAC.

I think 9th or 10th will happen for them.

14-7 Oklahoma. I’m pretty impressed at this moment that we stopped OU on any possession.
