    Officiating last Saturday night.

    Thought that was a great job by the officails the other night. Unlike previous LSU/Alabama games.

    I thought so too, but the offensive pass interference had me a bit perplexed.....

    There was a point in the game where I would have disagreed with you. It wasn't the calls, however (other than the armbar PI), it was the spots.

    They pretty much let them play. But also, players on both teams were mature and didn't turn it into the Florida/Georgia game.


    But something neat that is coming on espnu is about a behind the scenes of the SEC refs. Should be interesting to watch.

    If I posted what I said about the officials during the game I would be banned before I hit post

    (The offensive PI call and the no call on Mettenberger's phone celebration)

    However, watching the replay of LSU's last possession has puzzled me. On their next to last play the back doesn't get out of bounds. The official signals to keep the clock moving, then seemingly changes his mind and changes his signal to stop the clock.

    Player was injured on the field. Also noticed one of our guys took his helmet off with 3 seconds left.

    Yep. I got a flashback of the Cody controversy on that one.

    I though I saw an injured LSU player, but isn't the clock supposed to start again once it is marked for play?

    EDIT: Just rewatched for the helmet. Can't see Mosley's right hand, but it appears when him and Square were chest bumping Square's helmet hit his and knocked it half way up his face, and he then just took it the rest of the way off.

    I actually think there was confusion on that play. Eli said that he stretched the ball out of bounds, but the first official signaled that he was still in play. He got up slowly and hobbled off the field and they stopped the clock.

    The ref started the clock once the umpire moved. However, Mettenberger snapped the ball immediately, which provided no time elapse from the ref starting the clock.

    Well then LSU needs a new clock because according to my stopwatch 2.7 seconds went by between Owens signal to start the clock and the snap when the gameclock actually started

    Nitpicky, but it's either do this or read more election coverage
