SEC issues statement regarding personal foul against Florida

The Slophouse reports that the SEC has issued a statement regarding the officiating in the Arkansas vs. Florida game from this weekend.

Several calls from the Saturday’s game have been called in to question by Arkansas fans, media, the national media, even Terrell Owens since Saturday’s game.

Here is the statement released today by SEC spokesperson Charles Bloom.

As is standard procedure, following each game, institutions will send a list of plays from its previous game to the conference office for review and comment. We have been in contact with Arkansas concerning this review from its game against Florida. We did communicate to Arkansas that, after video review, there was no evidence on the video to support the personal foul penalty called on Arkansas midway through the fourth quarter. The other calls that were referenced are judgment calls and a review of those calls have been communicated to Arkansas.

The personal foul addressed by the SEC on Monday occurred in the fourth quarter of the Arkansas vs. Florida game, when Arkansas defensive end Malcolm Sheppard was flagged for the 15 yard penalty, keeping Florida’s late drive alive.

On the very next play, Florida’s Jeffery Demps scored the game-tying touchdown for Florida.
