I am not a whiner about the referees. In fact, the only other time I recall bitching about refs was in 2003....for any game....ever. You always have a chance for a make up on a bad call, so one call here or there will not decide a game....but that was another embarrassment.Saturday on par with the '03 Swindle. The only difference is we never gave the refs the chance to call fumbles on us and their TO's were impossible to overturn. When Roberson tripped himself and was called for PI, I was sure the fix was on....10-0 at one point, Reed's reverse call, etc.
What can Foley do about this situation with this blatant cheating? FSU's hand picked refs for this game are little more than circus clowns handpicked from their big top, minus the red noses and face paint. .
I have to agree with u, I never say anything about the refs but Saturday was a little over the top...

If they were cheating Robersons INT would've been called back.
Just makes victory taste that much sweeter
The one angle showed conclusive evidence of an inch of green grass between his cleat and the sideline. Plus, the ruling on the field was an INT.
Refs were a 1 sided joke. Probably a huge reason the loss hurts so much for fsu. The refs were trying to give them the gm and UF beat both opponents. Sad on fsu's behalf.

Play was not even reviewed.
Yeah the Burton one was awful. You would think Burton would've argued though.
Foley has to man up. This is the type of thing that made Spurrier crazy.
They need to have the visiting team bring their conference officials IMO. No reason the host team should have their own officiating crew.
UF banned ACC refs from Florida Field...as they should have. FSU cried about the most obvious solution...agree on unbiased third conference officiating....Gee....I wonder why

FSU didn't have a penalty until almost the4th quarter. Floyd had to call special victims unit because he was getting raped so badly. It was unbelievable. Every time we play them there it seems they try to dick us over when it's a close game
LMAO that Timmy TSK is tweeting Burton
Beatings will continue until morale improves
I think we should use another conferences refs for this game
FSU won't agree....they already turned down this solution. Foley had to scrap to change the previous agreement after 2003. It used to be that the away team got to select the refs....which brought us the Swindle....and almost a riot.
Here is a solution. Tell FSU to use 3rd party refs .....OR....we are going to drop them from the regular schedule and put them in a rotation with the other D1 programs in the State (USF, UCF, Miami, FAU, etc) or play us every year in the Swamp with our refs.
FSU is not little brother...they are the needy ex girlfriend that we feel sorry for and continue to let them take advantage. They NEED Florida. Exert a little force and make them do the right thing, or suffer the consequences.
They think they are having financial trouble now? What the hell would it look like without UF on their schedule?!
Agree! i love Foley and think he is the best in the land but i dont think he does anything about this and think it is a bit of a shame. i like taking the high road most of the time as Foley does but sometimes i think you need to do something about it. IF we had won the swindle in the swamp i dont think he would have done anything and since we won saturday i dont think he will do anything. It would take fan and media pressure and i dont see enough of it since we won.
No it was called an interception by the ref on the sideline whom was standing 12 foot away and could be seen looking at his feet. Therefore and because there was no evidence to overturn such call, because the t.v. angles were no way detailed enough to demonstrate his foot being in or out due to the digital/pixel sensitivity from that distance in no way can descriminate a white sideline from a white shoe but rather averages and blends the two, thus losing any true contrasting.
My problem wasn't the calls against UF (save the PI call) but the lack of holding calls against FSU.
I think the University must send some sort of protest and support it with film as well as the numbers that also tell the story.
that PI call on Roberson when Smith pushed him down
Reed's catch on the sideline when he caught it, took 2 steps inbound, took 1 step out of bounds and then fumbled it...and they even reviewed it and got it wrong
Burton was in on that free play long pass when they said he was out of bounds
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
WE OVERCAME THE ADVERSITY ON THE FIELD.
several of the calls reminded me of the swindle
but as jwren said-we overcame and still kicked their asses
And that's a first down!
Just glad to see I wasn't the only one mumbling over and over in the 3rd Qtr:
"The FIX is in."
"The Fix is in."
"The fix is in."
"The blah blah blah... mumble mumble mumble..."
Thanks Jeff, Gilly, Hunter, Trey, Dominique, Sharif, Matt etc for overcoming the ADVERSITY ON THE FIELD!!!

What about when Reed took 2 steps after the catch and went out of bounds before they ripped the ball out of his hands? That was CLEARLY a catch IMO.
I guess those two were pay back for Lane Fenner.
