SEC referees are not using high definition in instant replay

In the SEC, instant replay reviews are done using standard definition TV's. At the risk of sounding like a spoiled HD snob, this is seriously shocking to me. I have HD at home, and I honestly can't watch anything that's not in HD. It looks like it's from the early 90's to me.

You'd think that when they're reviewing pivotal plays in the replay booth, they'd use the best possible technology. After all, it could make the difference between one team going to the National Championship game, and another team going to a mid-tier bow.

Rogers Redding is the director of officiating in the SEC, and he has no idea what the problem is.

"The way I view it is, if this isn't broke, let's not fix it. I don't see any sort of emergency, oh my God, we've got to fix some­thing here."

Clearly, he has never seen a decent television in his life. The SEC probably spends more money on illegal recruiting than they would spend on trying to upgrade their TV's and get the calls right. Just throwing that out there.
