16 Total Holding calls in 4 complete seasons .... are you kidding?
SEC fans (and coaches, and media, and in general everybody) like to complain about the lack of offensive holding calls made leaguewide it seems. After our game with LSU this season there was an article about Les Miles being upset that the refs weren't calling us for holding, and I saw an article saying that from the start of the 2011 season until their game against Arkansas this year there had been a whopping two penalties called on SEC opponents for holding SC defenders.
I don't care enough to find the stats to know to what degree it is a bigger deal from Bama, but uncalled holds conference wide are apparently an issue depending on who you talk to.
