    Re: Dee Millners Pick that wasn't

    SEC officials are not the best have you ever heard of this from another group? Our coaches have not raised a stink for the good of the conference but let us not forget.

    Re: Dee Millners Pick that wasn't

    I think the 2 calls that were not overturned, the Lacy touchdown and the non-tipped pass, were costly. Those 2 were worth 14 pts possibly. I know this is off topic, but I still claim the pass was not tipped and therefore should have been a PI call.
    Also, if we would have had a better angle, I think evidence would have showed Lacy did stretch the ball across before it was knocked out of his hand. We didn't have a clear shot on goal line of that one. Player was in the way.
    I thought we had a shot of the non-tipped pass had they taken more time to examine it. No change of spin or direction of the flight of the ball. Furthermore, with the view from behind the QB, it showed space between the defender's hands and the ball. Unfortunately, the next play they block our FG and score a TD.
    I also think if Depriest's foot was not in the way, we could have seen Gurley's knee down before he reached the endzone. Oh well. Roll tide anyway.

    The refs we have now are as good as they've been in my lifetime.

    As bad as I hated it and as great of an effort as it was, it definitely was incomplete. In a couple of angles, you could see the ground's affect on the ball... you don't have to see it hit the ground if that's the case. The most horrible thing about it IMO, was the fact that Bama had to go back out on the field after the euphoria caused by the call on the field. Once you're up that emotionally and get brought to earth, it takes a bit to get composed. I thought we were beat at that point.

    Ritter is a fine ref, and he called a fine game yesterday. This is a bizarre thread.
    ...did we lose the game?

    If you watched the replay, we got the snap off before the whistle on the fake punt. I'm just glad we won. RTR

    Doesn't matter when he blew the whistle. The clock had hit zero and probably would have swung to -1 if they had it before the snap.

    We complain about them a lot but they're the best I've seen in any conference.

    I expect perfection - an acknowledged unattainable standard - but I don't think the SEC refs are awful. It's just infuriating when they miss something like the 'tipped ball' interference call. Even in real time it didn't look tipped - at all.

    See, I blame review for that particular error. I want perfection too, but when a guy messes up on a split second call, that's the job of replay to stop the game and look at it. Whether the ball is tipped or not is reviewable. They should have taken a second look.

    Sure, I agree - but I lump all the officials together.
