Ooooh that late missed call is another black eye for SEC officials. TWO feet in bounds on the interception and the reviewer missed it!

I was pulling for BAMA in this game since they beat my Vols. But that was a terrible, possibly game changing call by an SEC officiating crew.

And now Les Miles is not allowed to say anything about it!

OK, SEC Coaches, here is what you do. Call each other on Sunday and make a pack that each of you will call out the commissioner and demand remedial training for SEC officials. Get every coach to complain.

These calls defy excuse or defense at this point.

See if he has the gall to fine all of you.
