    My opinion of this guy has been tainted… maybe unfairly.
    But I will give him this: he handled his complaints perfectly…, unapologetically, but also without making it seem like sour grapes or excuses. This was strong.

    And I would call this more than a coincidence… Doug Shows and Pat Adams were 2/3 of the crew.

    Shows is “inconsistent” at best. Adams is objectively the worst.

    The question is...can and will anything be done about it?

    The home cooking is so obvious across the SEC. Our game last night was ridiculous.

    Stuff like this carries over beyond the foul itself. When guys feel they can't play defense without getting a foul it changes the way they play defense at all. Same with how physical they were allowed to be, on defense AND offense.

    Yeah, I was wondering about the call on Haugh during the live action. Maybe Tommy looked at Sears too hard.

    Insult to injury considering how sears was bowling into defenders on his drives. That has to get into a defenders head.

    Both our guards are better than cocky Mr. Sears Roebuck.

    the refs stole the game from us, plain and simple. some people like to think refs don't affect games that much, and those people have never played sports

    very composed, considering. this conference needs a wholesale firing of these dirty refs...and maybe a full audit on their assets and spending

    Question: I thought we did not have conference affiliated refs in basketball? I know we have them in football which I despise but I thought college basketball refs are just in regions and are not paid by conferences and do not report to a conference. Is that correct or incorrect?

    A&M too - and even a fairly called foul laden game is a huge disadvantage for us because it fundamentally changes the pace and vibe of the game.
    We may not be the most physical bunch, but I think we’d always benefit from a “let them play “ type of game

    The double bonus was created to combat the late game foul parade when the trailing team was hoping for missed front ends -
    Routinely seeing teams in the DB with 5-6 minutes to go is a problem in my book - WAY too much officiating impact , especially when you consider the subjectivity of many of the calls. There’s almost always some contact, even on “clean” plays , so the refs have a significant say in the way games play out.
    We dominated Auburn, but I think we also may have benefited from the backlash of the 85 free throw game just prior. Lots of contact both ways in the Auburn game, but refs did a good job differentiating meaningful contact , from the incidental
    Of course, it helped that we won, but it was a much better game to watch, like the first half vs Bama- end to end action, went 5 mins or so with no stoppages.

    I think that should be the officiating goal / mandate from the league office.
