Get Rid of NCAAF Refs!

I am sick of it....Sick of the bad calls, sick of the instant replay, just sick of it!  This rant stems from the Miami vs. Va Tech game on Thursday.  I'd like to start out by saying I did not have a dog in this fight, just thought I'd watch.  And now it begins....

WTF!??!?!?!  We need to do away with the Refs and have the teams make the calls themselves.  I am positive that the games would be called more fair.  QB is it AS HE THROWS, roughing the passer which was followed by yet another bogus penalty which kept the drive going for what ended up being the game winning TD for Miami.  Reviewing plays every 5 minutes, what is the point of the coaches challenge if the refs are reviewing everything on their own?!?!?  The refs are bogus, instant replay is horrible in college football.  I am sick of it.  As a person who enjoys watching college more than pro I am beginning to change my mind.  I like(d) watching college because the players have more heart, they are playing to win, not to get paid.  Quite frankly I don't know how they do it!  I am sure that if it was on a football field today I'd go out of my way, miss a tackle, not catch a pass, to LAY OUT the refs.  Someone needs to knock something into them!!!  I know this is a rant, but seriously.  I need to here a legitimate rebuttal.  Oh wait, I bet there isn't one.  The NCAAF refs SUCK.  At least in the pro there are the Ed Hochuli's.  Any "Ed Hochuli's" in college?  I didn't think so.  Yea, Ed has made a bad call or two....but when is the last time Ed lost a game for a team?  Yea, you can say he did for the Chargers.  But they had....4 chances to win AFTER the bad play.  No, there are no good Refs in college and it has made the game unbearable to watch at times.

Give me something...

Get Rid of NCAAF Refs!

I hear ya...but it's not just NCAAF refs that need help, you have seen the issues the NFL refs have had this year...and you seen that one ref that laid out that player in the college game...I don't know about you, but I think that should have had some ramifications for that one!!

LOL!  Can you say Deliverance?

HDTV is one of the best inventions...until they come up with something better.  I just feel that the mediocrity in refing needs to be confronted.  Why does every play get reviewed in college?  I thought the coaches had to challenge?  Seems to me the review rule in college is totally broken...I'm about to go on another rant.  WTF are rule-makers thinking?  It seems like they are people who don't watch the game and don't know sh*t about football, just sit in a room and make up rules....god it makes me so frustrated!

Hey LAL,

I've played sports all my life and have done stints as a ref/umpire.  I consider myself very sympathetic because of that, but it does get frustrating when you know that these individuals get paid a DECENT amount and don't seem to me that they work for it.  As far as the NFL, ever since the beginning of the season at the Denver/SD game, they have been scrutinized even harder than ever.  I DO admit that I LOVE my HD TV and how beautiful it looks and makes any game awesome to watch!

I think Kentucky 707 loves you!   Be afraid!   Very afraid!    No canoe trips in Kentucky for you my friend!

Why stop at the NCAAF?   Get rid of the NFL refs too!   I tell yea, with most all sporting events being broadcast in HD, we are able to see things so much more clearly.  Start fitting the refs with HD glasses.......Sing it with me now....................I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!I hear ya PP - I know it is tough to Ref, but I have done it before on a lower level.  Yes, you can miss some calls.....if you aren't watching the game!  In all seriousness I know everyone makes mistakes, but my point is that now that we have instant replay the refs rely too much on it and don't worry about making a good call.  Seems like they make a call knowing it can be reviewed and so they don't worry about making the right one.  Makes me ill!!
