    Re: The argument against the "Alabama never gets called for holding" bias from offici

    All SEC fans think the SEC is biased toward Bama because the SEC is headquartered in Alabama. I had to listen to one this past Saturday at the SECCG. Of course they don't believe the United Nations is biased toward the United States because the UN is headquartered in the United States.

    I know that I am biased but I see others teams holding us a whole lot more and not getting called for it than calls that are missed against us. That holding near the end of the SECCG was ridiculous... How do you miss that?

    I don't think that they are calling holding on any team. Most of the holding penalties that I see called usually involve a lineman or receiver in space (pulling or screen). Which, at that point, if you have a number in the 50 to 70 series you also have a gigantic bullseye when playing in space.

    Holding happens an almost every play within the tackle box. Heck, it is coached. However, unless it is a blatant takedown, it is usually not called. Even with a takedown, there is no guarantee. As a former OL, I prefer it that way. Beats having a penalty every few plays.

    I do think that it should be called when the OL ends up lying down on the DL's back. That didn't get called against UGA...

    I just didn't have a great view at all times during the game because I was directly behind the endzone. I will say that UGA's center looked awfully close to holding Jesse Williams most of the time he was on the field. I didn't have a good view of his arms most of the time though...but it looked questionable from the stands.

    4. We are more disciplined than the rest of the SEC. When compared to us, LSU, Auburn, Tennessee, Miss St are very Recless.

    The temperament of a HC tends to rub off on his players..Coach Saban's temperament is being disciplined in everything he does & that has rubbed off on his players..Thankfully..

    Actually, did Georgia get called for a single hold? during the game?
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    There was 1 holding call on center David Andrews in the 2nd quarter.
