Since I'm retired, I had a lot of time to watch football this fall and winter. I'm almost embarassed to say that I typically watched at least three college games each weekend during the season and virtually every bowl game. (Is there anyone anywhere who doesn't believe that there are too damn many bowl games? But that's another topic.) Why do I watch so much football? Two reasons: I love football and, since I am primarily a pro football junkie, I'm always keeping an eye out for what I consider to be undervalued potential draftees. As some of you know, I will admit to keeping notes concerning the goings on. Then, go back and review later.
Here is the point of this post: When reviewing my notes from this ENTIRE college football season, one single point stood out above all the rest -- how incredibly bad the officiating has consistently become! Not just a few games, or some games, but EVERY game -- including last night's "championship game officiated by an all-star crew." God, if that's all-star, the game is in big trouble. Don't know how many others noticed, but they missed at least eight holding calls last night. I won't bore you with the details.
Am I the only nut out here? What are you other guys seeing with respect to officiating? How about you, Drew?
