Call me a conspiracy theororist, but I truly, deeply, honestly believe that THIS occurred specifically to increase revenue for the SEC.
The SEC stands to gain somewhere upwards of 64 million dollars if Alabama and Florida go to the end of the season as #1 and #2 (respectively). SEC Championship revenue, ensuing bowl game revenue, merchandising, etc.
You're not going to convince me that those Refs are not well aware of how it behooves them as employees of the SEC to keep Florida unbeaten.
And, yes, I do still consider last Saturday a win for Arkansas. In my heart and in my mind that team won that day. Without question.
Wooooo Pig Soooooieeee
