SEC Commissioner Mike Slive is determined to ensure two SEC teams are in BCS bowl games. In his Birmingham office, the mantra must be "the ends justify the means."
Not everybody is buying it.
Take Mike Bianchi, professional Gator propagandist for the Orlando Sentinel.

How badly did SEC officials rob Arkansas against Florida?

How badly did Arkansas get jobbed by the refs at the end of the game against the Gators?

Here are two of the worst calls I've seen in quite some time -- one a pass interference call on the Razorbacks and the other a personal foul.

By the way, this was the same SEC officiating crew that made the ridiculous excessive celebration call against Georgia in the game against LSU two weeks ago.

But don't trust me. Look at the videos yourself:


As if these calls were not bad enough by themselves, add the context of what was taking place in the game at the time and the short span in which they occurred. It all leads to one place.

Florida was trailing by a touchdown with the clock ticking down in the fourth quarter. These two calls kept Florida's game-tying drive alive.
Bianchi failed to show the horrible spot on a Tebow run in which the SEC officials awarded him a first down when it was clear that he was a solid yard short of the final spot.

BUI will continue to highlight these indefensible calls made by this crew and to shine sunlight on their reprehensible motivations.
