For the second week in a row, Tennessee was on the wrong end of several missed or controversial calls. This time against South Carolina, coach Jeremy Pruitt drew a first-half unsportsmanlike penalty after a targeting call was reviewed and went against the Vols.

Another play that drew the ire of Tennessee fans turned out to be a missed facemask penalty on both teams early in the third quarter. Princeton Fant was tackled for a loss of four yards by Aaron Sterling, but both players grabbed each other’s facemask. But a flag wasn’t called against either team.

This is no surprise for either team as Tennessee last week against Alabama, and South Carolina last week against Florida each protested several calls, and even discussed them throughout the week with the SEC office including Commissioner Greg Sankey, who issued a statement in the middle of the week.

Fans are becoming increasingly frustrated with the missed calls or non-calls nearly every week.

Pruitt held a seemingly ongoing dialogue with the officials as he talked to them after many plays, especially if a flag was thrown.

By late in the third quarter, the penalties were five for 33 yards against Tennessee, and six for 40 yards against South Carolina.

Here’s a sampling of fan reaction to the officiating:
