TURRible officiating

Or, as it’s referred to in the Pac-12, good work.

That was from the Cal-Stanford game, where nothing much was on the line.  Far worse was the attempted hose job on Oregon State (what the hell does the conference have against the Beavers, anyway?) where it seemed like the officials did their damnedest to save the game for Oregon — who, coincidently, was the conference’s highest ranked team at the time — as OSU drove late for what turned out to be the winning score.

For example, this somehow isn’t offsides.

There was also a missed touchdown on a quarterback sneak when he got the entire top half of his body over the goal line, but in the end OSU overcame all of that and managed to score on another sneak to pull off the upset.

In the SEC, there’d be complaints about refs throwing the game, but it’s just another day at the office for Larry Scott’s crew.

    All if us criticize officiating in specific conferences but in reality it is shiity all over the country. The NCAA should take steps to improve officiating nationwide.

      Same as it ever was. They are human and they make mistakes just like the players, coaches and . . . gasp, fans. It’s part of the game.


      • Mistakes of judgment are one thing. The game moves fast, and things happen. Blatant missed calls are another thing. Replay was supposed to stop this stuff from happening, but they look for 5 minutes on whether a guy got a foot down on a 3rd and 20 when he got 5 yards and completely whiff on this kind of stuff.

        For as much money goes through the college game, the officiating isn’t much better in the SEC than it is at a Friday night 7A game in Gwinnett County.

    Those officials last night were awful. In other words, business as usual for the PAC12.

    Agree, watched both games and both had really questionable moments, to say the least.

    I will give the Oregon v OSU refs credit for correctly giving OSU last TO back after they initiated review on the supposed failed sneak (he was in), so they went 1-1 on that call. 50% = excellence these days LOL.

      Agreed he crossed the goal line on that sneak. The officials did their best on the goal line stand to show how bad they really are. Penn Wagers would have been proud of their work.
      I really enjoyed listening to the network guy explaining prior to the snap on the touchdown how stupid it was to have the replacement QB go under center. He quickly doubled down saying a successful QB sneak would not work. He got quite after the snap.
