The Big Blue Daily Mail -- SEC Officials Stink Edition

By now you have surely heard all the sturm und drang about successive weeks of bad calls by the same SEC officiating crew.  Needless to say, this situation has many SEC watchers, bloggers and pundits fairly displeased.  The SB Nation SEC blog Team Speed Kills has more on the subject here.

The bottom line is, there have been a lot of really bad calls in the SEC this year, and with all these admissions of error, there are sure to be calls for some kind of overhaul of the officiating crews.  I have no idea if this will happen or not.  What I do know for a fact is that Georgia and Auburn have a serious beef about the potential impact of those bad calls on the outcome of their games. 

The worst thing about the Arkansas call was that there were two other situations, one a pass interference call and the other a non-call that clearly (to my eyes, anyway) was PI on the Gators, that have the unfortunate effect of making the officiating look intentionally one sided to the conspiracy-minded.  That's not a good thing, especially in case where the SEC is repeatedly forced to admit error.
