My Take: Sun Belt needs to step up its officiating game
Sun Belt logo
Georgia Southern scrapped and clawed its way to a triple-overtime game that it absolutely had to have on Saturday. There was plenty of drama and the pros and cons of the night will lead to much discussion about the Eagles moving forward.But let’s take a quick timeout to talk about the one thing in Saturday’s game that was only slightly less noticeable than the tropical storm dumping buckets of rain onto the turf at Paulson Stadium.The officiating didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. It stuck out like a broken and dislocated thumb that the television cameras and broadcast team quickly cut away from while finding anything else to talk about.
