Officials for Florida-South Carolina game getting roasted by fans on Twitter
The Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks are playing a sloppy game (kickers aside) in rainy conditions in Columbia.

The game is now tied 10-10, so we’ll see how the officiating affects the game in the second quarter and beyond.
