Default Refs escorted from the Valley

After the game the refs were bombarded with water bottles as they went into the tunnel. The refs were put right in a van and taken out of the stadium with a police escort. First time I have ever seen that.

They should be escorted to jail. Looked like a fix

They deserve it.

If Dabo doesn't get fined in his presser, he has no spine. That was completely unacceptable. Terrible job by the refs. We played like garbage, but they certainly hurt us a lot as well.

Screw those guys. The officiating was blatantly bad.

Duane Heydt head referee is a Usuck alum and realtor in Columbia. Sure seems he wanted some vengeance.

He is about to have a lot more reviews on Zillow.

Responsiveness: "every time I call, he puts me on HOLD"

"when I first reached out to Duane, a lot of red FLAGS popped up"

Gotta say, I'm not sure chucking water bottles and wishing physical harm is the way to handle that. I get the frustration, but that's not a good look. Those aren't bad people. They were just really, really bad at their jobs today.

It's a game. Lose with class people. It's not like Dabo made great calls. Maybe he should work on coaching instead of trying to work on catchy phrases or his dance moves. Btw is this the standard? Or is fun in the whining? Or did Dabo bring his Guts? Maybe should have brought his coaching for dummies book.

I'm sorry. Maybe it's gods fault? Or is it in his plans?

Brilliant.

My Coot buddy watched the game with me and even he was saying what the game announcers were saying ! 3 TD drives for Pitt should have never happened !
But the biggest issue is glaring ! 3rd and 4th down running the football when they couldn't run the ball all night ! The talent on this team has bailed out the terrible play calling all year , and tonight it caught up with them !
Deshaun was completely unstoppable and they try to run the ball and give away the season ? Insane ! What should have been a playoff year and great things from this team is over thanks to Swofford's Tobacco Road bandits and idiots calling plays !

Stop with the precious snowflake junk - the refs were terrible, our play calling was terrible, our defense thought we had it in the bag and didn't show up the first half. Learn a valuable lesson - every game matters, every team can beat you - and move on. Win out the season, heck even crush everyone else by 100 points to prove you blew it and know it.
Play your guts out. Every game.
No snowflake whining junk.
Go.

How ? UL will not go over a one loss ACC Champ. The question would be if they let a one losee ACC Champ in.



They wouldn't put A&M below Auburn last week when both had the same records.
