On Satuday afternoon the Arkansas Razorback player the Florida Gators. The Gators were 27 pt favorites to win the game.
Arkansas showed allot of poise in the game holding off the high powered "Tim Tebow" offense.
In tomorrows papers the headlines will say Tebow leads Gators to another come from behind win.
What they won't tell you is that the Gators did absolutely squat in this game. Arkansas could have put more points on the game on three different occasions. They missed two field goals and Mallett over threw a wide open fullback in the endzone.
This game shows me about Florida that they may not be as good as advertised. They wore on defense against the run, showed very poor tackling and a capability to give up the big play. Florida did show though that if you give them the chance you will have to pay.
You may not know what I mean? I'm tired of crummy officiating. (I would like to state that I am not just a whining Hogs fan about the loss.)
It is extremely clear that he media is on Florida's side. "Decorated QB is part of three Florida championships". Great headline right?
It starts to get embarrassing when last week, the referees make an obvious no call on the only touchdown of LSU vs. Florida.(clearly that receiver pulled the whole jersey of the LSU defender that sprung him for a touchdown.)
In todays game there where three BLATANT calls missed or unnecessarily called!!!
1. On Florida's last touchdown drive there was pass interference called on a Arkansas defender that was completely unnecessary. The defender turned and could have made the picked but the Florida receiver in fear of just that grabbed him instead.
2. I'm 19 and have been watching football for about 17 of those years. I have never seen a more stupid call that the one I'm about to explain. As a play (on the same drive as before) was "just" ending a Florida offensive lineman charged a defensive player from Arkansas. All the Arkansas player did was meet the Florida player in mid strike. The Florida stumbles over. They called this a personal foul. If you don't believe me WATCH the play. I thought this is football, not a board game.
3. On Florida's game winning drive Tebow let a pass rip. He threw it for the touchdown. The problem was that the ball was poorly thrown. The Arkansas player should have caught the ball if he hadn't been interfered with. That would have given Arkansas a chance to drive the ball for a win.
I hate those commercials that talk about fair play in the SEC and "sportsmanship". If this is true then why is there a complete and total biased for Florida!!!!
Say the officials gave Florida the game, say Arkansas gave Florida the game. Just don't don't say Tebow did so much and "HE lead Florida to the win". Florida didn't show to much life in this game(4 fumbles) and they should feel lucky they got the W.
**(Sorry Florida fans I know you will read this and be like yeah right this was such a fair game, your a whining razorbacks fan! Not the case I'm a Notre Dame fan and hate Mallett and all of the SEC)**
***(could we see Alabama jump ahead of Florida, it happened last week against Texas)***
