 This wasn't unexpected, but last week after seeing SEC refs actually be competent and call a relatively even game, it stands out in stark relief.

Yep.  You guys got the trench ponies to hang with anyone and the skill players to take over at any time.  You are in a really good spot at this point of the season.
Meanwhile OU's next game is at Cincinatti who just lost to Miami of Ohio.  Now watch those guys come out like world beaters.
Isn't that the way of things?

Yeah everybody thinks their own conference has the worst officials.  But I can assure the SEC fans, that your conference does not.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

No West Virginia, either.  Instead we play B12 newcomers BYU and Houston.

When Quinn was celebrating, he sort of, almost, spiked the ball in the end-zone. I think the ref was trying to tell him not to force his hand into unsportsmanlike.

The "how to spot the ball" thing was just amateur hour. I don't think Sark wanted it reviewed. I think he was trying to point out the obvious error so they didn't look stupid (and cost Texas 4 yards and a sack). The near side line judge got taken out on the play, but I gotta believe more than one official can spot a ball.

It took the officials 5 minutes to come to that conclusion. Meanwhile the LHN never referenced it. They lauded Wyoming coach Craig Bohls for the entire time.

When's the last time you saw anyone draw unsportsmanlike for spiking the ball in college?  I haven't seen it in years.  And he more like just sort of dropped it.  It looks to me like the ref got upset that Quinn didn't politely hand him the ball, and then when he saw Quinn celebrating with teammates toward a large group of Texas fans, he got his panties in a twist and decided to teach that young whippersnapper a lesson for daring to disobey his almighty rule.

Your version might make sense if I hadn't watched the past two seasons of B12 refs systematically effing over Texas time and time again, while looking the other way when the other team does the same things.

gee, thanks

I haven't seen a college player spike the ball in the end zone in a long time

I'd wager one of Prime's sons would be the next

I haven't either.  Because they'd be flagged for it, no question.

In 2009 our RB was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct at Georgia for raising his arm halfway and pointing an index finger at the sky, evidently thanking God for scoring a touchdown.  SEC refs do not allow blatant disrespect for decorum like that.

I've seen it happen in recent years, no flags.  All kinds of celebrations are occurring these days, with no flags.

And 2009 was a long, long time ago my friend.  It's so very long ago, that it's "back when Texas was good at football" long ago.

That was just a story I thought of.  I can't tell you the last time I saw a player spike a ball in the end zone, and in our conference at least, you'll get hit with unsportsmanlike for far less than that, and the players mostly know better and the coaches will chew arse.  Jefferson wasn't even allowed to do the griddy, or whatever the heck his little endzone shuffle is he does with the Vikings.
