I just rewatched the game and there were a couple of things I had forgotten about concerning the officiating. 1) Hester fumble that was later decided it was incomplete on the 4th down play in 1st qtr. He had 2 steps with the ball in control before it was knocked out. There was not enough indisputable evidence to reverse the call on the field. It was really obvious to me as it was to the announcing crew 2)Brandon Lafell got mugged in the endzone, something that was quite obvious to me and the announcing crew. These 2 calls would've kept drives going deep into AU's territory. -Also as a side note there was a no call for the viscious helmet to the face mask on Hester when another player was pulling him out of bounds. The announcers once again thought they got away with one. 3)R. Smith, WR for AU, caught a pass took 2 steps and got popped by LaRon and was put on his butt. The ball actually came loose before his butt hit the ground. The announcers didn't catch that but I did after seeing it again 4) The last PI call that was picked up. This was wierd the way it went down. Early was getting mugged before the ball was tipped, which is pass interference I thought. Now after the ball is tipped its everybody for himself. Now it seemed somebody reviewed this play because there was a brief conference btwn 2 officials, the call was announced, then 30 seconds later a conference occured and reversed it. This was a total botch job. The guy that through the flag obviously thought it was pass interference, but who determined when the ball was tipped. Just because the ball is tipped doesn't negate the penalty it depends on when it was tipped in reference to the PI penalty. Crap like this needs to be reviewed by the officials when it involves the timing of events. At speed one official is not going to catch whether the ball was tipped before or after the PI penalty. I'm not saying that the coaches should be able to challenge but the refs should consult replay to make sure they get it right. Basically 4 situations that hurt LSU tremendously but Auburn had no calls that were controversial. However, LSU could've and should've won this game even with the 4 ridiculous items mentioned above. JR on multiple occasions didn't set his feet when throwing longer balls and better throws could've been TD's in one maybe 2 situations. The clock management was terrrible at the end and the OL was bad in the running game. But the officiating probably hurt us more than LSU hurt themselves.
