    Re: Had to beat UGA and Referees

    The only real problem was the tipped pass call. Since it so hard to prove a negative, the official on the field should never declare that a ball is tipped unless he is absolutely sure.

    If the ball is truly tipped then the replay will show it. If the ball wasn't tipped, it's hard to overrule though.

    Replay will bail out an missed tipped ball call, but it can't really be helpful on one that ruled a tip but really wasn't.

    It's like some people expect the announcers to call the game like they're Alabama fans or something.

    The refs are not "...out to get us..." as some are saying. The public at large is tired of Bama winning, but that comes with the territory we're in right now. You win a lot, and non-fans root for the other guy. It's a great place to be, so get over the fact non-fans want us to lose. But when we take it to the next level of some referee conspiracy, it just sounds ludicrous, and that mindset gives more fuel to the jealousy of our winning ways.

    Re: Had to beat UGA and Referees

    We have a thread like this after every Gator game. Every one...no exceptions.

    Not to disparage calling out bad calls.

    No doubt - there were bad calls that hurt Bama in this game.

    I thought the comments by Jess in the pinned post-game report about using replay was spot-on. We have it but I don't know why it isn't used more consistently.

    It's not so much the bad calls....it's the review frequency of the calls that deserves more attention, IMHO.

    It wasn't the timing of the hit, it was the type of hit, up high. Those hits are gettingcalled as personal fouls these days, especially when done against the QB.

    Re: Had to beat UGA and Referees

    I always cringe when I find out "Bugeyes" (aka - Tom Ritter's) crew is calling our game. That said, I believe the call evened themselves out pretty evenly. It's uncommon to see holding call in the middle of the defensive backfield. Where they were holds, they happen to every team every game and are usually much too covered to be seen well from the refs.

    Re: Had to beat UGA and Referees

    I thought it was a poorly called game with the refs missing a surprising number of calls against both teams. But best of all, bad or missed calls didn not determine the outcome. Getting beaten straight up is bad enough but losing because of a blown call always bothers me more. Bottom line...alls well that ends well.

    I thought the officials called a good game. That photo of Lacy is in no way indisputable evidence in my opinion.
    It all balances out normally, I'm just glad we won.

    Agree. I felt like they gave both teams their due.
