Although if Steve Shaw’s first move is to transfer Penn Wagers and his crew to the SBC, I’ll take back every cruel thing I’ve ever said about Mike Slive.

I would spend an afternoon on an overpass with a sign that says honk if you love Mike Slive
Will the Sun Belt Conference* become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Southeastern Conference just like Golden Flake Snack Foods is a wholly owned subsidiary of Golden Enterprises, Inc.?
If not, don’t let Shaw transfer me there. Idaho is a far away land.
Your faithful servant,
Penn Lost Wagers
* “The Sun Belt Conference will contest the 2013 football season with eight members – Arkansas State, Georgia State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, South Alabama, Texas State, Troy and Western Kentucky University. UALR and UT Arlington compete as non-football members. Come the 2014 season, the Sun Belt will have four new members in the league as Appalachian State and Georgia Southern were added as all-sports members and Idaho and New Mexico State have been added as football playing members.”
This proves this is only a figurehead position or Shaw has a large group of assistants to evaluate game film of these crews. The assistants are probably the blind review guys like Al Ford. Will they play by SEC rules? Blocking is tackling and tackling is blocking.
To our Sun Belt brothers and sisters, do not pass go, proceed directly to your conference administrative office and ask your commissioner what the hell is he thinking. If there in one thing the SEC does worst than any other league it is officiate football. Brothers/sister have you not scene first hand week after week the poor abilities of the officiating crews the SEC trots out. Mr. Shaw is no better, he lacks the management skill to wipe is behind after a crap and has the spine of a shrimp. DO not take my word for it, look for yourself, the evidence is overwhelming and easily accessible. If you are in such dire state, please do us a favor and simply take all of our officials and claim them for your own, I believe we are better off starting completely over.
In very small print, at the bottom of that page is an invitation to ask the SEC a question, (not that I’d expect a response).
My first question would be “How do you justify the fact that the conference championship was determined by shitty-to-criminal officiating this year (see UGA vs Vandy) instead of the atheletes and coaches on the field? And this is (arguably) the rule rather than the exception.
My second question…..how have these officials been punished? If they can screw a player or a whole team or a whole conference right in front of the whole viewing world, why can’t their “punishment” be made public?..(I suspect it’s because a public announcement that an official was punished would also be a public statement that said official was guilty of something…precipitating a lawsuit against the conference by said official. This could all be handled in the contracts between the SEC and the officials.
So, Shaw’s job with the SEC is basically a part time gig…so part time Shaw has hours in his work week to spend on the Sun Belt….wtf is wrong with this picture?
That was my first thought, too. Shaw obviously has the SEC zebras working as the most perfectly well-oiled machine in history, so he has to take on another entire conference just to keep from getting bored. Damn.
Penn Wagers is a horrible person.
This is mind boggling. I know these refs are part timers but to have a part time supervisor just tells the world how little the SEC cares about the quality of the officials.
