    That TD throw was beautiful.

    He would have been if it was a BYU QB in there. He would have laser-locked on the receiver immediately and the safety would have intercepted it.

    Can we get Babs to tell Herbstreit that those curved collars haven't been in style for 10 years (any never for white guys)?

    It’s one thing to get looked off a couple steps so that you have to recover to force a good throw. It’s another to get looked off so hard that by the time the ball arrives and the WR has taken two steps, you are still % out of frame.

    Georgia fans are complaining about the blocked punt offsides call.

    The problem is the angle that ESPN showed on the replay. The camera was a yard behind the LoS towards Alabama's side of the field. If it's straight down the line, the Georgia player likely went into the neutral zone.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I agree. Tua sold that masterfully. The safety swallowed it HLS.

    There was a pretty blatant false start on that 4th down, game tying TD.

    Think back to the Music City Miracle game. Wycheck's lateral looks like a forward pass because of the angle of the camera. That camera angle is not straight down the line so you can't tell where the Georgia player is in relation to the LoS.

    But the refs also missed the false start which would have also negated the play.

    The worse play was failing to call a false start on the 4th down TD

    It may not be straight down the line, but its pretty close.

    Lots of people I went to school with are upset about the UGA loss. Almost none of them actually attended UGA, mind you. This seems to be the general opinion of the officiating.

    In regulation with the normal angle above the field, they showed it from behind and he looked clearly offsides. If the camera is not straight down the line, you have no idea where he is in relation the ball. If the camera were a yard beyond the LoS on Georgia's side, he would look really offsides.

    Regardless, if you're going to blame the refs for calling that wrong, then you have to point out the Alabama false start on the same play.

    Losing teams always feel the officiating sucked. There was a blatant hold on one of Georgia’s TDs as well. If replay was Really about getting it right they would give each coach a certain number of challenges and let them challenge everything in the rules, penalties included. Instead it’s a fake band aid to create more commercial time.

    It's that anti-SEC bias. Big 10 refs just can't help themselves.

    Watched half of the second quarter. Went to bed at halftime so I could get up at 530 for a run (NY resolutions and all that). I'm happy with my decision.

    Yes. And with all that talent and arguably the best coach in NCAA football history, Bama has no choice but to rig the game.
