Happy Halloween, all.

That might be the first time I've ever seen typically shitty ACC officiating favor Miami to the detriment of a "founder" (one of the Carolina schools).

Have any of y'all witnessed a review of a targeting foul get reversed this season?

ACC already came down on the crew and is suspending them along with the replay official.

Their press release is brutal.

The series of errors during the final play of the game will result in the suspension of the entire crew for two ACC games.

The errors that occurred during the last play of the game are:
  • The replay official erred in not overturning the ruling on the field that the Miami player had released the ball prior to his knee being down. If called, this would have ended the game.
  • The on-field officials erred by failing to penalize Miami for an illegal block in the back at the Miami 16-yard line. If called, the ball would have been placed at the Miami 8-yard line and the game would have been extended for an untimed down.
  • A block in the back foul was called at the Duke 26-yard line. After the officials conferred, which is appropriate, they correctly determined that the block was from the side, which resulted in the flag being picked up. The replay official was not involved in the decision to pick up the flag; however, the referee did not effectively manage communication and properly explain why the flag was picked up.
  • In addition, the on-field crew failed to penalize a Miami player for leaving the bench area and entering the field prior to the end of the play. This foul would not have negated the touchdown because it would have been enforced as a dead ball foul.

Actually, the Pac-12 is not that bad. ACC worst, Big 12 next.

Edit: Well, the research shows bias, not incompetence. So you may be right. But have Pac-12 refs ever moved the ball during a chain measurement to give a team a first down?

Lolol.

I've seen the refs just call for chains to move without measuring, even though it was clearly a yard short.

Seriously though...

I read somewhere (maybe here) Ohio state didn't get called for a holding all of last year. Wtf is that.

Holding penalties need to be reassessed in general. It's ridiculous how often big plays are ruined by a tugged jersey halfway across the field that doesn't impact the play at all. I'm not exactly sure what the answer is, but there has to be a better way.

Also, while we're at it, intentional grounding needs to be updated to account for how athletic quarterbacks have become. The rule as it stands only makes sense when the prevailing quarterback is a slow pocket passer, which isn't the case anymore, and it's far too easy for the more mobile modern quarterbacks to slip out of the tackle box and throw it away to avoid a sack.

I agree, but with the intentional grounding I am afraid it's just going to make the shitty teams shittier.

I don't get why Alabama is in the top 4. More SEC bias BS.

Not that the poll this early matters that much though.
