Not To Be Outdone By The SEC, The Pac-10 Is Suspending One Of Their Officials For Favoring Their Top Team
The Pac-10 would like everyone to know that while everyone gushes about how the SEC is the premier conference in college football, the Pac-10 is right there with them. They even have terrible officials who make bad calls in favor of the team that the conference's "powerhouse" team, in order to help them maintain their high national ranking.
As you can see in this play, USC safety Taylor Mays clearly committed a facemask on Oregon State WR James Rodgers. It was pretty much as blatant as it gets... especially considering Mays ripped Rodgers' helmet right off his head.
So the Pac-10 is taking a page out of the SEC's playbook, and suspending the official who should have made the call. Hopefully Major League Baseball is the next league to get the hint.
