Pac 10 Refs - Embarrassing

It's been that way all season.  They opened the season by becoming the laughing stocks of college football in the Oregon-Oklahoma game.  They further embarrassed themselves in the UCLA-Arizona game when Ben Olson was knocked out with a late hit, and Tuitama was knocked out with a helmet to helmet hit (hey, I call 'em like I see 'em)

Fast forward to tonight.  

  1. I thought the late hit on U$C when Cowan ran for the first down was a bad call.  But the helmet to helmet hit by Maladjusted on Cowan was so blatant and so obvious that my six year old niece could have called it.  Should have kept that drive alive.
  2. In the last minute on the third down play, U$C calls a time-out that they don't have.  This wasn't surprising, as most U$C players can neither read nor count.  Yet still, the clock stopped for at least ten seconds worth of time that should have come off the clock.
  3. With the new rules in college football, the clock is supposed to start after punts when the ball is ready for play.  Apparently there's a caveat to that rule that says the ball isn't ready for play until U$C says it is, as the refs stood over the ball for about 20 seconds, and I think Booty was on 2 before they finally ran the clock.
Great win.  Awesome performance by the defense.  Pathetic display by the women of troy.  And flat out embarrassing work by Pac 10 officials.
