    When I was playing in H.S. our coach taught us that refs, umps, etc. were human and made mistakes, but are not "cheating". Further that when you sign up to play, you agree to abide by the calls made as a part of the game that you have no control over, like the weather.

    I might be mistaken but I thought the officiating crew was from the ACC.

    They were. I’m not saying they were cheating but there were some obvious calls that they blew. Like the first pass play where the offensive player facemasked the defender. It wasn’t mild. It was egregious. No excuse for not calling that. And the incredible “non-catch” by the Bama player, the ball clearly moved. The announcers saw it, the rules guy saw it, everyone at home saw it. Shouldn’t have been a TD. That was 3rd down. They should have had to settle for a FG. Those were inexcusable.

    I know. My wife retired from Cox. (She still gets the shakes sometimes too, like if the phone rings during an outage). Seriously though man, put stress in perspective and maybe it will help. There are a lot of things I think that are more stressful than working in the cable field. I just wish you well man. Now get out there and start servicing all those irate customers! Hurry Up! They are threatening to disconnect service and cut the cord!

    lol Customers don't stress me simply because I use my inner monologue to tell them how I really feel. It was a lot of other stuff at work.

    Trust me, if I didn't work for Cox I wouldn't pay for any tv service but I would still have internet, especially in BA. Windstream here is awful. The only people who have them either hate cox so much they are willing to suffer or barely use it so slow speeds don't matter.

    I'm a fan of both Oklahoma teams. However, when you're down 28 - 0, the few blown ref calls should be the last of your worries. JMO.

    This was an actual stat put up during one of the breaks. I saw it live and IIRC it was about halfway through the first quarter. Then someone turned this into a meme on Instagram. It's a crazy ugly stat for OU early on.

    That's sad right there. Just down right sad.
