The correct call would have put LSU inside the 10 yard line with ample time left to score a touchdown and win the game.


Sad.

Yeah, there's a picture of Early Ducet getting held and tackled at the same time by an Auburn defender before the ball gets there.

Maybe refresh it. It'll show up.

We had 50 seconds to go 80 yards!!!


...and the missed PI call on Early Ducet wasn't the only horrible non-call.

I gotcha.

It should have never come to that though.


Look, I hate to come across as a whiny baby, but the refs just cost LSU a chance at the National Championship.

It's not like were some team ranked #24 who got screwed. That's why I'm so mad.

I can see the pic, and I saw the play live. My understanding of the defensive pass interference rules are that if the ball is tipped by a defender at any point then there is no pass interference which in this case made the ball uncatchable anyway. Of course I could be wrong and saw plenty of other bad calls during that game. I was surprised to read that tripping is allowed if its against the ball carrier, it happened in the Florida/Tenn game of a kick return, the kicker tripped the returner and I jumped right outta my seat but there was an article in the Gainesville paper saying it was legal.

The way I see it you guys had plenty of chances to score more than 3 points and couldnt do it....so even if you get the call what makes that drive any different?

BATON ROUGE, La. - LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University) athletic director Skip Bertman sharply criticized the officiating in last Saturday's game at Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) as well as the Southeastern Conference's subsequent backing of the officials' decisions on two key calls.

"The SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference) Office has stood by the officials' calls, and we respectfully but strongly disagree," Bertman said in a statement released by LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University) on Tuesday. "We strive for excellence every day in LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University) athletics, and we expect the same level of excellence from the officials that are assigned to us by the SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference)."

Late in the game, Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) defensive back Zach Gilbert was flagged for interfering with receiver Early Doucet deep in its own territory in Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University)'s 7-3 win over then-No. 6 LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University). The flag was waved off because officials deemed that Eric Brock's tip of the ball made it uncatchable.

Another controversial fourth-quarter call went Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University)'s way when LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University)'s interception on third-and-29 was negated because Daniel Francis was penalized for interference on receiver Courtney Taylor, giving Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) an automatic first down.

That pass was ruled a catchable ball, and SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference) media relations director Charles Bloom said that call also was correct.

LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University) coach Les Miles complained after the game about both calls.

"There were obviously a number of calls by SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference) officials in our game against Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) that had a dramatic impact on the game," Bertman said. "Coach (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Coach) Miles went through the proper procedure of addressing these calls with the SEC (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Southeastern_Conference) Office and I appreciate the manner in which he has expressed his dissatisfaction with the officials' decisions."

Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University) defender Erick Brock, left, and Zach Gilbert break up a pass to LSU (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Lousianna_State_University)'s Early Doucet in the fourth quarter of Auburn (http://www.gatorsports.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Auburn_University)'s 7-3 win at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Interference was called on the play then overruled because the ball had been tipped.
Tough call

It was definitely a tough call. Personally I am glad the picked up the flag. Not because I wanted Auburn or did not want LSU. I truthfully was enjoying just watching a good game. I just hate it when the refs make calls that probably did not have any bearing on the actual play. I know I am going to get blasted by DD onthis, but the fact was the Auburn player (not Gilbert-the other one) made a great play to get over and tip the ball. Ducet was not going to have a chance to make the catch even if he was not getting tackled.

I thought it should have been PI, but I can understand the rule as well if by tipping the ball it becomes "uncatchable" and thus makes the PI a no call. Either way I can understand why you are upset DD. However, there were lots of other chances that your team had and did not come through on.

oh no i agree. it sucks. not that FSU had a chance if they kept playing like they have been, but we had a huge call go agaisnt us in that loss to Clemson. ever heard of duel possession of a fumble? when a play from one team comes out of the pile with it?

even Bobby said hes never heard of that, and hes been around 123 years.

Tough call


there still cant be contact until AFTER the tip. it should of been PI or illegal contact, or holding, or whatever. but that was still a bad call.

You're right.

Like at the end of the first half when LSU was driving and Brandon LaFell got raped by David Irons in the corner of the end zone and no PI was called.

Or in the 1st quarter when LSU was in Auburn's 30 yard line and went for it on 4th down. JaMarcus Russell lobbed a 1st down pass to Jacob Hester, who cought it, took two steps, and made a football move up the field but fumbled the ball out of bounds.
It was called an incomplete pass.

It was a good play to tip the ball.

However, contact was CLEARLY made BEFORE the ball was tipped. Early Ducet got held and tackled at the same time.

That is pass interference.

That was definitely a bad call. He clearly had posession.

I thought LSU looked the better team - just got no luck!

I thought it was pass intereference - the ball was tipped but was still catchable, therefore pass interference!

I know it was harsh and I was rooting for LSU. but this is why I love college football - I thought the atmosphere was fantastic too - I'm going off the NFL more and more as I watch more college football!
