Homer refs at the Swamp?

    Anyone see the two horseshit calls (and one non-call) on Florida's game-winning drive?

    First, questionable pass interference; second, questionable personal foul; third, apparent offensive pass interference not called on Cooper in the end zone.

    Apparently this crew really does think Tebow's Jesus.

    Questionable personal foul? The guy was tackled by his helmet (which was ripped off), with another guy coming in to lay a head shot on him while he was going down.

    This thread's a joke.

    I didn't see it that way ... and neither did the announcers. But okay.

    That was the Notre Dame game, I believe.

    And I think the general concensus is that SEC officials suck in general, so this was probably to be expected.

    Yeah, you can join the rest of the conversation over on the weekly college football thread.

    These refs were as bad as the refs in the OU-Tex were good.

    The numbers were 10 flags for 92 yards for Ark, 3 flags for 16 yards for Florida.

    Bobby Johnson wonders why everyone is surprised by this.

    Christ, you don't even know what game you're watching. Now THAT'S a joke.

    I normally hate the ref conspiracy threads, but I'll admit I had the same thought watching the UF game. Seems like all the calls (and non calls) down the stretch went in Florida's favor and several of them were HIGHLY questionable. I'm sure hog fans are feeling jobbed right now.

    The pass-interference call wasn't that bad. That type of play gets called a lot. The personal foul was ridiculous, though.

    A couple of the calls were dubious, but I've never understood the rationale for comparing number of penalties to judge officiating.

    Isn't it possible that one team just commits more penalties in a game than another?

    And what about Arkansas' kicker missing two field goals?
