This Week in SEC Officiating Controversies - College Football - Rivals.com interesting part of this article is that it says SEC officials get paid 500 a week, and have other jobs. This is the problem to me. The SEC has enough money to go out and hire the best officials in the nation. Not these scrubs who just got called up from 2-A High School Football. They make all the money off of these Universities and kids who play the games and they can't even get the best officials? Money should be no object hen it comes to the greatest conference in of College Football.
