SEC Officials: And the Hits Just Keep Coming...

One Southeastern Conference officiating crew has already been placed on "Double Secret Probation" by the conference for making calls no one could find justification for after reviewing film. Now other crews are coming under fire for calls, or no-calls, this weekend. The Alabama-Tennessee game, as well as the Florida-Mississippi State game had controversial situations involving seemingly blown calls. The real tragedy is, both of these were close, hard-fought games where you always want the plays made on the field to determine the outcome, as opposed to the decisions of the zebras. All anyone is asking of officials is to just get it right. Stay as invisible as possible, and make the calls as you see them. But don't try to make 'em if you don't see 'em in the first place. Any questions?
