If we're honest...this is a huge game.

If we're all lucky, the Sphincter unexpectedly closes and traps Alabama and Florida State forever, thereby alleviating pundits of at least 30-45 minutes of otherwise useless airtime per subsequent broadcast.

This is a Big Ten officiating crew doing the game. And Jim Kemerling is the replay official. This is the guy who screwed us over in the 1990 Rose Bowl with the phantom holding call on Chris Stapleton's fake punt. Kemerling openly bragged about screwing over Bo in his final game afterwards and a Pac 10 official later contacted Bo and ratted him out.

Yes, it's obvious I hold a grudge to insane levels. Not denying that. But I'm surprised and annoyed this guy is still working. He retired from officiating in 1998 and here it is nearly 20 years later and he's still involved with the game. He must be in his 90s by now.

Anyway, I'm with the guys who are rooting for the meteor. I've hated both these teams for so long, I can't root for one over the other.

It bugs me when people don't at least think these officials are human and definitely have their own biases/agenda...as if they're all squeaky clean. Hate to be a conspiracy theorist but man. Why would sports be the "thing" in society where everyone loses their emotions and biases..you've just proved an example with this guy's history (I have never heard that story or about him).
