Has the sec office ever admitted a mistake?
Do you guys remember if the sec office has ever admitted that a ref screwed up or that a call was bad?

Yes. When they fricked us over in 09 against Florida they ended up suspending the entire crew over two blown calls late in the game that protected Florida and Tebow's perfect season.

Well ref(s) were suspended (or whatever term was used) after our debacle with Florida that year so that’s kinda admitting at least.

After the Auburn field goal fiasco against Alabama just before halftime last year, the SEC officials are a banana republic.

The SEC admitted the screwup after they gave A J Green a celebration penalty after a TD against LSU. The penalty resulted in an LSU win.

After officiating for more than 25 years. You will seldom, if ever hear a League office admit Officiating errors. Didn't the Big10 league office admit that an Officiating mistake cost a team to lose last year or the year before?

The sins of the officials are handled internally and never in public. Watch a crew when they ( we) leave the stadium. We never talk to each other. You don't know who you run past. Imagine talking and you comment "That coach screwed up using time outs at the end there." Reporter overhears and the papers the following morning " Officials criticize time out use by the coach."

The crew catches hell when the league reviewer and the crew are graded in the time slot assigned. Most likely Tuesday or Wednesday.

I think some fans would be better off if the sec office would just admit the mistake. Admit guilt and resolve to fix the issue. Thats what we want.

They blew the whistle before the recovery, so they couldn’t have fixed the call anyway.

I don’t know how to post pictures, but if you look, Nix didn’t exactly turn backwards. He turned to the side, yes he was more backward than frontwards, I’m not saying that, but it’s easy to see in the heat of the game how the officials blew the whistle and called incomplete pass. There was an Auburn player closer to the ball than Arkansas, he stopped because the ref stand right in front of him was blowing the whistle and waving incomplete. It was a backward pass. It should have been called a fumble. But to say Arkansas clearly recovered is insane. They also blew the obvious pass interference against Williams in the end zone..... shite happens.

How many years has to go by and times do people have to be corrected before they get that this is not true.

No. The blowing of a whistle has not prevented the fixing of that play for years now.

The replay official can ignore an inadvertent whistle.

It depends on the players reaction to the whistle.

If that was the mistake in that call let's fix that mistake.

Roll that video back about two seconds. The Auburn player is headed for the ball. The Arkansas player is on the ground 3 yards away. The Auburn player STOPS because there is a ref in his face blowing the whistle and waving his arms. The Arkansas player then inchworms along the ground to the ball, then the Auburn player sort of reacts. The Auburn player is clearly closer and going to get to the ball first but stopped because of the whistle.

All of your whining is irrelevant when the ball is rolling around and bouncing off the ref when the rule says it has to be an immediate recovery.

They probably have to LSU multiple times.

I'm not whining. I was correcting that comment for accuracy sake. That poster has no way of knowing that Auburn's player would have recovered that ball. The facts simply show that Arkansas recovered the ball.
