The explanation as to why Georgia wasn’t awarded a first down on the defensive holding call in the first half boggles my mind.
The officiating crew led by head referee Penn Wagers, botched a defensive holding call in the first half. Mohamed Massaquoi drew a defensive holding penalty in the end zone, but the crew failed to award a first down. Richt blamed himself for not questioning the call more vigorously because he was unsure of the rule. Automatic first downs are only awarded for holds against eligible receivers and the referees were confused about whether Massaquoi, who wears jersey No. 1, was an eligible receiver…
Pardon my French, but you’ve got to be shitting me. The guy’s a senior. Last year, he burned Florida on an 84 yard TD reception in a game that these same clowns officiated. And they can’t recall whether he’s an eligible receiver?
Let’s hope that Wagers and Company aren’t making a return trip to this year’s WLOCP. Between Massaquoi and Percy Harvin, they could have some real problems with defensive holding calls. Sheesh.
