Georgia Football: Here’s the SEC’s Surprising Explanation of the Atrocious Officiating in the Georgia/South Carolina Game on Saturday
The word from the SEC’s higher-ups:
We have received several responses of concern regarding officiating during the Georgia/South Carolina game on Saturday, September 13. After further booth review, we believe that many of the errors were a direct result of a meal consumed by the officiating crew. Prior to the game, the crew decided to grab a quick bite at El [redacted] Mexican Restaurant in Columbia, SC. The results were explosive. Well, not explosive. But electric. The after effects of the meal at El [redacted] caused thunder in the bellies of the officiating crew. As you may know from elementary school science classes or any of a number of country music songs, when there’s thunder…there’s lightning. That lightning delayed the game, but the gaseous nature of the disaster of a meal served at El [redacted] did not subside until well after the game. As a result, several scenarios on the field were impacted. We apologize for the inconvenience that our incompetence caused both teams and their fans. Lo siento.
So there you have it, folks. If at some point before the game you said something along the lines of, “Yeah. South Carolina will win this game about the same time lightning flies out of the refs’ butts,” then you called it. If at any point you thought, “Mike Davis will only be the third-leading rusher in this contest if the game is delayed because of gassy officials,” then you were doubly right.
That’s all I got/
