South Carolina Smackdown
I think we can all agree that football referees can make bad calls. In fact, it is not out of the question for a referee to make at least one bad call a game. We have even witnessed a NBA referee getting jail time for betting on NBA games. But what happens when an NCAA football referee attempts to tackle the South Carolina quarterback DURING a game, an actual live GAME? IF you dont believe me, watch the video below.
See what I mean? Let me say that I am a Big Ten fan. Since moving to the dirty south, I have had trouble getting interested in the SEC (I know I know, SORRY!) But this particular story peaked my interest – maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel for me. I would love to see this particular referee come up with an excuse. It is impossible for a referee to come up with an excuse, considering that a referee is never going to hit a player during a game. Perhaps the QB stole his whistle? The ref must have had money on LSU. Either that, or the other refs bet him $1000 to hit one of the players. Or maybe he found out the QB watches Gossip Girl. In any case, something clearly needs to be addressed by the NCAA officials.
I am scratching my head on this one. Anyone know something I don’t know?
