The officials were horrible @ the UGA game on Saturday. In the 2nd qtr., there was a CLEAR hit out of bounds by an App. State player that wasn't even called by the official right there. But then when App. State had the ball, UGA WAS called for it when both players were in bounds!
The multiple Unsportsmanlike penalties against the Dawgs were also questionable to the crowd during video reviews.
Also, there was the UGA "fumble" after the interception deep in App. State field that was met with crowd objection from video review on the scoreboard.

2 things about the WLOCP:
1. Near the end, the official called 3 UGA & 1 UF unsportsmanlike penalties......THAT OFFSET EACH OTHER?
2. Aaron Murray was tagged in 1 of those calls, but NOBODY knows what he did.
Any light that can be shed on those?

It's also funny how of all the cross-division games, the ONLY historic 1 ever mentioned is Tenn./Al. simply due to the Vols current rebuilding phase & Alabama's steamrolling through everybody.
As you're mentioned, John, NOBODY seems to remember just a few years ago when the roles were reversed & Orange was more victorious than Crimson.
Apparently they've forgotten the UGA/Aub. game that has been played LONGER than TTSIO's competition. Guess it's called "The Deep South's OLDEST Rivalry" for a reason!
I know this will fly higher than a lead balloon, but I read a proposal on another site to go to 10 conf. games: 6 interdivision, 1 perm. rival, & 3 rotating rivals. You''ld go through the entire cycle in 4 years & everybody would have 5 H/5A conf. games.
Drawback to this is: UGA/UF/USC/UK will all only have 1 slot free due to their annual in-state rivalry with their ACC counterparts taking Game 11.
@bpa_kc & please tell me HOW you're going to implement 2 historic cross division rivalries, 5 toss up cross division games, AND create a rotation that's fair to all 14 schools?
BTW, "having the historic games NOT count as an SEC conf. game" is NOT the answer!
It would be interesting to see how many games have their results overturned due to erroneous officiating.
& before somebody harps on the time issue - I'ld rather have a 4-5 hr. game called CORRECTLY than a 2-3 hr. game filled with bad officiating.

@John at MrSEC
How do we know what a school's rotation is? I mean, it's easy to do your division (just swap the host sites). But now the SEC is throwing the cross division rotation into some kind of new format. Also, the order you play your teams. For ex.: 3rd Sat. In Oct. is a given; & WLOCP is always the weekend of Halloween. But who's to say UGA can't start off with Kentucky instead of SC & so forth? Like I pointed out above, some people are under the impression that the 1992 rotation should continue but somehow have Mizz./TA&M added in there as well.

But it's not the penalty itself that's objected. The issue is if a video review negates a player ejection, it SHOULD negate the penalty all together!

I hate to tell you, but with a 52-0 score, do you think anybody's gonna say "Hey, I think Arkansas will come back & beat Alabama"?
Lots of sports have fans leave when it's an obvious blowout.

However, Mizz. has only played 3 conf. games & has 5 left on the schedule. Ga./Fl./SC all are still in it.

Our favorite 1 word topic: SCHEDULES! What do you think their change(s) will be - if any? As in, which many have tossed out there, non-conf. games only against those on the same level? Or will that be each conference's call?

Just my personal opinion, but if you're arrested for drinking/drugs, you SHOULD have some kind of suspension from sports. The SEC should enforce that rule if nothing else.

You think they'll be 16 team conferences - even with the possible addition of another NCAA level?
There are plenty of schedule formats out there (1 famous dealing with "roommates") & I'm sure there is somebody who's got the perfect solution.
& I agree with we need to come together as a group....but you also can't throw out the past for some. I know I'll get flak over this, but how about those not wanting to go to 9 conf. games because they seem to only strive for enough wins to be bowl eligible?
I don't think John was talking about selfish behaviour. To me, he was pointing out that those who seem to be complaining about schedules (one coach in particular) hails from a school that didn't object to the scheduling when the rotation was created for '92. The other coach came from a former SEC school & I don't remember him complaining about scheduling either.
But back to a prior post by John, the ONLY "fair" schedule people will agree on consists of 26 games where you play @ everybody & host everybody. But it wouldn't surprise me if somebody gripes about when they play somebody compared to another team.

I won't go into details about the split & rotation starting with 1992 (I'm not too sure about specifics myself), but I'm sure there is history behind why certain teams were paired up. & also to the reasoning behind dropping to 1 cross-division opponent starting in 2001.
The only way(s) to do a fair schedule would either to be shorten conferences to a specific # of teams OR expand the schedule to a certain # of games. Both have their +/-.
If the SEC goes to a 9 game conf. schedule, that would be 6-1-2 setup & you could go through the entire other division in 3 years (that 4th year would be a repeat of year 1 with sites flipped). This allows your school to play everybody & see everybody. Now, this is by me taking your comment about "seeing certain players" as in being a HOME game for your team, correct?
& I agree that since the SEC expanded 2 teams, the conference games SHOULD BE expanded.
As to the rivalries, those who have them enjoy them. Those who don't, don't. As for me, being a UGA fan, I'ld hate to see the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry" (played about 117X in 120 years) be thrown to a "whenever" game or have it not counting as a conference game.
So, the only options I personally see are what I listed above - either shrink conferences to X # of teams where everybody plays everybody yearly, or increase the schedule. Either way, something has to give.
I don't understand this comment, Voice. In a way, it sounds like you're almost talking about parity scheduling. The trouble with that is it'll be making teams almost impossible to meet (Alabama/Vandy for example).
True, a round robin schedule of 13 games against each team is the fairest way. HOWEVER, would there be no need of a CG or divisions since the top team would have been decided by the head-to-head game over the 2nd place team (or from a few tiebreakers)?
