    Dee Millners Pick that wasn't

    They used the inclusive card most of the game not going in our favor, this should not be a surprise. Thank God we were able to beat UGA and the refs. I really wish we never see tom ritter and his crew again. They are horrible. Is this the best the SEC can do regarding officiating?

    I like Tom Ritter and his crew. I thought they did great. The replay booth? Not so much. Ritter doesnt see the review he just does what they tell him

    The nose of the ball closest to Milliners chest indeed touched the ground even though Milliner did "cup" the ball underneath...one of the last replay angles showed that clearly. It was the right call.

    Ball hit the ground, no INT. What bothers me though, and I know I am beating a dead horse here, but it appeared they were only selectively reviewing plays. Tons of time on the no pick, no time on the tip pass/PI call. No review of Lacy and forward progress on the goal etc.

    To be clear about the point that I was making, I responded to a poster who said the ball went through Milliner's hands. While the nose of the ball may have touched the ground, Milliner did have the ball pinned between his right arm and his body. I did not take a position on whether or not the pass was complete.

    Gary must have had a direct line upstairs when he would bark out that "yeah they reviewed that last one" after a bad call for Bama

    Taking off the crimson glasses, if it had been a Georgia DB making the "interception" the way Milliner did, I would be screaming INCOMPLETE.

    As I said in a different thread that was not Ritter's crew, the crew was mixed which I do not like for big games like this.

    Yep. Wasn't even really a close call.

    Dee made a great effort to grab it, but the replay ref got it right.

    While I was really hoping the call would be upheld, I had the same thought. It was a fantastic try by Dee, but it was an incomplete pass. In retrospect, I'm glad it was overturned so we don't have to be hearing/reading about a so-called "tainted victory" for the next couple of weeks. CBS would have shown it (with commentary by Verne) ad nauseum.
