Now, Brian’s Blog is watching the Kentucky -v- Florida game.
Kentucky has just completed the first half of the Florida contest. Two seconds on the clock, the quarterback spikes the ball, one second is on the clock. However, the referee crew led by a former Tennessee player and current Knoxville resident decide they have more pressing matters to deal with.
Kentucky Coach Rich Brooks ran out and confronted the head referee as he is trying to get to the halftime destination and is left talking to the Line Judge. As the ESPN Commentators go to break, even they acknowledge the officiating crew acting like a PAC-10 crew officiating an Oregon -v- Oklahoma game as they say “In Lexington, Rich Brooks gets that call, but not in the swamp”
Refs should never determine the game. A good game is when you can’t blame the old guys in zebra suits.
