Default Holding this season by our opponents.

Anybody know how many times it was called? I've been re-watching some games. Rampant.

Eh, he has a point. I think holding was only called on an SEC opponent around 3 times this year.

Don't know if it's a conscious decision by the league or not, but holding is pretty much accepted now.

It happens everywhere and it's pathetic that they dont call it. I saw an FSU tackle have two hand fulls of UF's Ronald Powell's jersey in their game this past weekend. And sure enough, it wasn't called.

I'm going to play Devil's Advocate, here. If they called holding every time that it happened, games would last 5-6 hours.

Pretty sure that one Florida guy was holding that other Florida guy against Georgia Southern.

We all know it happens every play.
But there has been some egregious missed calls.

I'm talking guys getting their jersey pulled from the back...that needs to be called and it isn't.

Good choice of words. The Devil certainly wants folks the think wrong stuff must be allowed. Actually, if it were called more often, there would be less of it going on and encouraged by coaches.

The fans shouldn't have to be whining about it. Our team should be whining about it every play if necessary. That is how you get some of those calls.
