How can they be so bad? Clueless. They missed two sideline out of bounds against UCLA and Whittingham didn't even challenge. The worst call was the "tipped pass/interception". They missed the spot by 15 yards. Shouldn't the ball be spotted at the point of interception? Instead they placed it at the previous Utah line of scrimmage. I could go on but in general, they were indecisive, ambivalent and confused by the rules of football.
The P12 has a lifelong reputation of poor officiating. Is it so hard to train these guys? Maybe too much Rx Marijuana.
