A lot of people on Twitter saying the Dores got jobbed.

Two things I thought that were bad calls. The one getting the most talk is the UT interception in OT that was returned for a TD. Official blew the play dead because he thought the players knee was down. Should have been a turnover but no score because of the whistle.
The one I thought was crazy was the running into the kicker on the field goal attempt in regulation. Vandy kid dove in and landed on the kicker, kick was blocked at the line. According to play by play announcer, if ball isnt tipped by the player that hits the kicker that its a penalty. That penalty allowed UT to go for it and they scored the tying TD.
Typical game where officials give UT the game.
The penalty on the kick was a good call, just crappy luck for Vandy.
There WAS a whistle in the return in overtime, but that guy was gone regardless of that whistle. It's not like Vandy players would have caught him if the whistle wasn't blown. UT would have had 4 downs to score anyway. But yes, for some reason there was an inadvertent whistle and that should have stopped play. I don't think it would have affected the outcome though.
UK is doomed for sure now!
Playing UT is tough enough for the Big Blue, but now with a bowl birth for the SEC office on the line, expect everything to be seen by officials as orange.
Well, it's up to Wake Forest next week to ensure that Vandy doesn't go bowling.

Big Tyrone summed it up perfectly. I thought the officiating was fine at the end.
Just bad luck for the 'Dores.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
That play was either going to be Vandy getting screwed, or UT getting screwed. The ref's screwed up on two levels and there was no way out.
Vandy has nothing to complain about. Although the whistle clearly blew and I guess by the book it should have been dead, that guy was already heading to the end zone and wasn't going to be caught. They should go to the NFL rule on that. They really screwed themselves earlier on the TO return to the 1 where their thug OL (can't recall his name) threw the dirty block right in front of the ref and it got called all the way back, Vandy ended up punting if I recall. That kid has done that multiple times this yr. and has cost Vandy possible wins twice.
UK and Vandy are the two "Bad JuJu" teams in the SEC. Bad luck follows them around like a hungry dog looking for a bone.
The meanest dog in Taiwan.
lets hope UT used up all their good luck to win this one and the bounce of the ball can go our way this week!
