This Official Obviously Had Money On LSU
I didn't watch the LSU/South Carolina game last night, but I did hear about a ref who more or less tackled South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia during the game. I didn't think it was possible that something like could happen, but, well, I was wrong.
Above is a sideline video of the incident that provides the best angle, and yes, the ref pretty much becomes another linebacker. He actually follows Garcia laterally, then moves towards Garcia and delivers a hit with his shoulder. I'd love to know what in the hell was going through the ref's head. He must have had a flashback to his playing days or something. Either that or he definitely didn't have money on South Carolina.
Nothing happened as a result of this, like the ref getting suspended or anything, but I guess if any college teams are looking for an extra linebacker, try and get this guy reffing your game on Saturday.
