  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    PS. If you happen to find yourself in tight financial circumstances with regards to renewing here please reach out to us. We’d be happy to help sort it out.

Surprised there is no chatter about this (new head of SEC officials)

    An ivy league degree is probably necessary to understand what constitutes a catch these days, but he still won't be smart enough to decipher targeting... we need IBM's Watson for that.

    He is going to need that fancy Harvard degree to try and figure out how to get the officials to call a hold on Alabama...it might be easier to figure out how to find a Higgs Boson instead.

    I thought the SEC head of officials was required to be an Alabama grad?

    Hopefully....
    He'll refuse to be "indoctrinated" by Saban, and will finally call him out for what he really is....a cheat....

    Then...we'll REALLY get too see little Nicky's head explode.:eek::D

    If there is a problem (and I think there is), then did the problem emanate from Steve Shaw (the former head) OR from implicit pressure from the league office.
    OR just unintentional bias toward the haves over the have-nots? Similar to Duke getting favorable treatment from the ACC in b-ball.

    I think the latter. Implicit pressure and unintentional bias toward the favored (Bama, Auburn, UGA) vs the unfavored. (us, TAMU, USCe.)

    In this case, it appears SEC went the outsource route to fill position.

    A step in the right direction...I've been adamant that the head of SEC officials not have an affiliation with any of the schools.

    Is it true that one must be visually impaired to be considered?

    #1 will bama, lsu, and ugly still get to hold and get away with massive SPI?

    #2 will targeting EVER get called correctly?

    #3 does he know that if a ball hits the GROUND and bobbles that it's NOT a catch?

    #4 will any other team but UF get random 1st downs overturned w/o video evidence???
