SEC officials ripped on Twitter during first half of Arkansas-Alabama game
Arkansas fans have a strained relationship with SEC officials based on the past 2 years.
Several questionable calls have hurt the Hogs in key situations the past couple of seasons, and fans are fed up. So, as there were a handful of head-scratching calls and some lengthy reviews during the first half against Alabama on Saturday afternoon, fans flocked to Twitter.
Interestingly, even some other fan bases and national media members called out the SEC officiating crew.
Here’s some of what was said on Twitter during the first half of Saturday’s game in Tuscaloosa:
Are the officials actually watching the Arkansas – Alabama game?

Get these officials in the Alabama-Arkansas game off the field. If you can’t tell that he’s in the end zone on that running play, it’s time to hang it up.

What in the world is up with these officials in this Alabama/Arkansas game? They have really struggled on some pretty clear calls the last few drives!

This is a joke. These guys aren’t qualified to ref a peewee game. The SEC should be embarrassed. Yet again.

No, this dumbass crew and review don’t allow the TD and say that Thomson was down before the ball crossed. And then Thompson gets it over but this dumbass crew rules it short and will look at it. Maybe the @sec office will suspend me for criticizing this awfulness. TD Hogs.

Another home cookin call for Alabama on that intentional grounding call on Arkansas. @GregSankey I bet you love your officials always protecting the blue bloods.

I've never been a "Refs favor one team and hate the other" kind of a person.
But good lord, Arkansas is having every call go against them vs Alabama.
I mean, how bad can these SEC officials be? Yikes,

SEC officials have become a popular punching bag on Twitter. Will the league office have anything to say about this game when all is said and done?
