The refs did everything they could in the second half to stop Arkansas and give Kansas second chances. The officiating was horrible. If there had been a decent crew of officials this game ends in regulation with Arkansas cruising to a four quarter victory, 52 to 23. No excuse for officiating this bad.
@Rocktown501 Yes, I heard that the call was reversed, and MacAdoo will not serve a suspension. The T call is made far too often, and then the officials use too much time to make a decision.
@HesavedawretchlikeME I'm so relieved today after hearing that the NCAA overturned that targeting call and lifted McAdoo's suspension. Plus I love his physicality at corner, especially with that hit at 8:21. #WPS
They were bad in the first half too
Arkansas needs to get in that transfer portal and get some safeties, WRs, corners, & rush lineman ASAP! And I mean some actual talent! Not just a body!
All that talent in the portal. If Pittman screws this up, he'll be gone in 2 years. There's enough talent in the portal for Arkansas to potentially win the West next year!
The T-Call on MacAdoo in OT was awful too. Where was helmet? Underneath the other players helmet; his shoulder struck the helmet. But...the bottom line this scenario of Pittmans teams getting a big lead, then sitting on it----giving the opponent encouragement to get back in the game. Can't do that and build winning tradition. Otherwise you find yourself in games like this every week. Put the other away----stop playing not to lose, and being conservative.
On another issue; modern announcers think they are on RADIO and think that we want to hear them constantly talking and filling the air space. They need to shut up more----we can see what is happening!!!!
Think we need another blown calls compilation for this season, this game would make up half the video. Glad the guys got to go out with a win, WPS
How they let that 4th quarter fumble call stand is beyond me. The ground can't cause a fumble, it was obvious (in the replay video during the game) that he was holding it and the elbow hit the ground causing the fumble. Do they know how many heart attacks they caused? ;- )
@Levi Clements since this game there have been 2 other targeting calls (on field) overturned by review…and they were 10x worse than the hit McAdoo put on the Kansas QB. Check the last play of the Michigan/TCU game, and one of the last plays when Tulane was driving for their winning TD against USC.
@Levi Clements But at that point the QB was a running back. If that’s the standard then they need to be calling targeting on about half of rushing plays because those sorts of hits happen to running backs all the time. Literally all the time.
He was on his backside when the ball came out. NOT EVEN CLOSE!
The targeting call wasn't with the crown of the helmet, but with his shoulder to the head and neck area. It was a close call there, but more of a right call than some I've seen.
All of the uncalled holds against Kansas' O-Line was frustrating! Our linemen were getting tackled to the ground with no flags thrown. But, I'm glad we won anyway.
@Michael Parsons so true.
Very bad call.
So no one is talking about Mcadoo hitting the guy so hard he vomited? That was awesome and glad the other player was okay but great hit.
I was at the game in the box and we where going crazy surprised we didn’t break the floor WPS❤ GO HOGS
This game was such a big confusing mess, but so was the entire season.
You said it! I almost didn’t watch the game, then did anyways with friends.
I don't think I've ever complained about the refs on here...but this is going to be a first. I'm absolutely convinced they made some calls with the intent on making the game more exciting at the end.
I think you're giving the refs too much credit in having a motive. Simple incompetence.
Wow bad calls. But we did it. Great game proud of these young guys. Happy holidays c u all nxt yr. Let's go hogs.
They did everything they could to give Kansas the game but we persevered!
WPS! I'm REALLY glad we won this one.
Had we gone on to lose after blowing a 25 pt lead...
We avoided being put in the same boat as the Falcons and, as of a week and a half ago, the Colts. We also avoided going 0-4 in trophy games this season.
We started 2022 with a bowl win and end 2022 with a bowl win. And both involved the Hogs getting their first wins over their opponents.
Best game i’ve ever attended! We walked out with 3 minutes left.. heard Kansas fans yelling and screaming saying were going into OT.. so we ran back in! Amazing experience with and amazing team. Ima RAZORBACK 4L baby! 🐗🐗
Dude.. I could only imagine the expression on you guys face... Seeing g they somehow tied the game
I’m an Arkansas fan, but damn that throw by KU’s qb at the 1:20 mark was so impressive.
Yea he's a baller.
This was a very poorly officiated game for both teams with bad calls and no calls. Especially in the second half, seemed the refs had a vendetta to make sure Kansas got back into the game. Hats off to both teams dealing with the idiots in the stripes. Glad the Razorbacks got the win. Go Hog's!!!!!
@Scott Arivett You serious?
@Scott Arivett Why are you asking me a question like that? Did you not watch that game?
What bad calls went Arkansas’s way
Gotta say warmachine. This was tough to watch bud. Glad we won but damn it didn’t feel good. Just made my head hurt to watch. Either way thanks as always for posting and Woo Damn Pig!
What a game. Keeping alive the long-running Arkansas tradition of multi-overtime games.
9-1 when it goes 2 overtimes or longer! Pretty wild.
The reason we won this game is our many different players brought something to the table. Sam Pittman is the man! Go Hogs in 2023-24.
Been watching on fb some people being upset that we went to OT
We played vs Kansas and the refs
Without our #2,3 and 4 receiver
Starting TE and Center
And without rocket sanders
No Drew sanders, Pool, slusher, etc and no defensive coordinator
Love my hogs!!! Woo pig
The only guys we need are the ones that get on the bus.
No excuses!! Hogs find a way to get it done! It’s in our nature 🐗🐗 WPS
Arkansas continues their legacy with crazy overtime games
And we're all glad it was that and not adding on to the tendency of blowing a sizable lead and going on to lose.
Wow that last play, homie was wide open right in front of his eyes.
Wow great highlights just got home n it was great!! Thank you!
Man after a so-so season I can say. if I can have one guy coming back in 2023, gimme KJ 20000/20000 times. WPS. See yall in September.
High scoring game. Glad the hogs won
Did Arkansas really win? Even I don't know.
Just let 2022 end. Never thought a year with a win to start the year and a win to end the year would be filled with such unease.
Nonetheless, Woo Pig! Keep it up, Warmachine! Happy Holidays! 🐗
Yes We Won
In Fact This Game Shouldve been over in the fourth quarter But Due To The Refs Being Blind As Always Kansas Ended Up Coming Back
We were there, and left right after the big Landers catch, right before the fumble. As we are walking to the car the crowd behind us erupts in cheers so we turn on the radio. Then had to sit in the car and finish the game on our phones. I’ll never forgive myself for not staying. I mean, that game was OVER! literally just take a knee!
@Brooks Jones it was a done deal until this crackhead PAC-12 officiating crew got involved lol
@WARMACHINE2013 I gotcha. I just my dad and I would never leave a game early just to beat the traffic unless we knew it was a done deal. I guess we won’t make that mistake again.
Too much time left to take a knee unfortunately. Had to get one more first down at least.
That was also PI on Harper Cole just before halftime that resulted in a KJ INT. One of the many horrible calls. The officiating was so bad it felt surreal.
Like the BYU game. We beat two opponents today. Not even the refs could deny the Hogs today.
That was no fumble. But, I will say that I'm glad that Kansas is not a football laughingstock now. That program was down for so long, under so many different head coaches. Those boys didn't win but they had a hand in bringing respect to Kansas. Well played, Jayhawks.
@Phil Hankins They literally were though. First of all, we only had one string of secondary players, and they were playing a CB/man Safety/zone cover scheme off of a 4-2-5 that we hadn't played any - if ever- this year. It was tactical on Kansas's part that they were doing all of that pre-snap motion with their receivers. They were well aware of the issue.
@Pernicious Pete Agreed. Secondary looked lost.
@Phil HankinsLots of Kansas receivers WIDE OPEN--5 yards and more.
@WARMACHINE2013 Hogs secondary seemed lost. I felt sorry for them.
Their QB is a stud.
Bless you for putting this up so quickly... and I won't watch it. If I see that blown fumble call again my blood pressure is going to cause a stroke.
My head and heart from watching this game lol 😂 I already got ptsd from the army, we literally almost pulled a Matt Ryan special 😤😤😭😭🐗🐗🐗
ESPN and Liberty Bowl officials didn't want AR to keep beating up on KS, in order to avoid losing viewers. Sp. three OT's kept people glued to the screen a little bit longer.
Playing not to lose will be the death of Pittman's career.
that targeting and fumble call were so cheap glad they came out with this dub
The PI non-call just before the half was the worst of the bad calls. The Kansas defender deliberately ran into the receiver to keep him from getting to the ball.
I understand calling a fumble on the field, but someone please explain to me how the hell it got CONFIRMED in replay???
Replay booth guy still hungover from Beale Street would be my only guess.
10:12 Yeah, that was defensive pass interference.
They let the DB's cover their men that way tight all night. Oh... except that one PI call against McGlothern that handed them a first down off an uncatchable pass.
i was at the game man those refs sucks so bad
Every single ref in that game needs to be fired! That was absolutely unacceptable! Kansas held so much in that game, it was ridiculous they never called any of them.
I thought that perhaps I was the only one who saw all the holding the Kansas players were doing. It’s crazy how much holding the referees allowed them to get away with.
Which was the worse call: the “fumble” or the “targeting”?
@WARMACHINE2013 I do not like T calls anyway, because of subjective human error in making the call. It has ruined the game for me. That one call was not, MacAdoos helmet appears just underneath the quarterbacks and shoulder pad hits him...ball pops loose...
The fumble, IMO. Targeting can be subjective and it was an awful call, but the fumble call was inexcusable.
I had flashbacks to an easy four or five previous games where Arkansas was jobbed. It's like this officiating crew watched a select compilation of bad calls against the Hogs and said: "Welllll now: we'll use that one, that one, and man, we'd be crazy not to use those other two...!"
I'm with Trey Biddy on his walk and talk: this crew should never be allowed to ref another game (something along the lines of what happened to the crew that reffed that awful game down in Florida in 2009 only more so).
You are a goat for uploading this while basketball is on
@DaddyShrek fr council got hammered also doesn’t help that we shot 23 3s and shot terrible from the free throw line
I’m speaking of basketball what the fuck is up with those refs on the last play?
Cost us the game on an obvious foul
I'm not sure which one was going to give me a heartattack or an aneurysm the football game or the basketball game but my goodness I don't think I have ever seen such poor officiating in both games
I was scared lol, but fr the refs need to be fired. Yet we still won. Great job by the razorbacks especially with players that never even played in the regular season.
That was fun let’s never do that again.
As a Mizzou fan….Arkansas got screwed that’s what I call home cooking officiating Arkansas would of won this game by 50.
OU did too, against FSU
The refs were out of control!
How in the hell do you lose a 25 pt lead,.....38-13 with 8:43 left in the 3rd qtr? Glad we won but jeez that is absolutely ridiculous 🐗🏈🐗
Yes ridiculous to keep repeating this nonsense of getting a big lead, then sitting on it. Why do we think Nick Saban has been successful? Many folks don't like him, I do.
Pittman said in the post game press conference that that's when he told Briles "Do what you want." You saw the result: 4 straight 3 and outs. Watch the press conference, and you'll see.
The only important bad call was the last bs fumble
No, the PI non-call just before the half was important and obvious, plus it cost Arkansas a touchdown.
Officiating bad on both sides, but late in the second quarter seemed there was an agenda, against Arkansas, once the Hog's got a big lead, with the lack of penalties against Kansas and the number of drive ending penalties and no call penalties against Arkansas. Seemed someone must have told the refs that a blowout would ruin the ratings and to make the game close.
Sam needs to get a couple of safeties in the portal. One is a senior captain who ranked 113th out of 114 DBs in the SEC. We’re ok at corner with McAdoo and McGlothern but the rest of the secondary is garbage.
I think the refs were working for Vegas
Coincidence, unconscious bias, or something more coordinated?
In the 6 bowl games SEC teams have played thus far the total penalty discrepancy is 28 called penalties for 242 yards for the opponents vs 51 for 492 yds for SEC team. As awful as that discrepancy is, it is the missed calls that have been most damaging. The holding by Kansas o-line was egregious. The couple of holding calls that were made you could see the players were stunned because they had been mugging the d-line the entire game, why were they flagged for it now? I even found myself feeling sorry for Lane Kiffin! Ole Miss got jobbed way worse than the Hogs. On top of the nearly 2 to 1 penalty/yardage discrepancy, I saw a running back tackled by his face mask in the open field (no call) and on the late 2 pt conversion try that would have made it a 1 score game, the receiver couldn’t lift his arms to catch the ball because he was being tackled before it got there. No call.
I don’t like the SEC chances of winning any more bowl games unless they can blow them out (like Tennessee) and mostly remove the officiating problem from the equation.
Worst officiated game I’ve ever seen, and after having Auburn refs cheat us that’s saying something
The coaches should be ashamed of themselves for letting up so soon and letting Kansas back in this game!!!!! Im so sick and tired of Razorback coaches who lack killer instinct to put a game away🤦♂️
I will say this thankfully we had #1 and #6 because they put it on them when we needed it.
The officials are the same as they were, and every year that Arkansas plays. This game doesn't surprise me at all with the officials. SEC Officials are corrupt, year after year.
This was a PAC-12 crew.
Number 18, defense. wtf?
There’s a formulation of play calls or execution that makes more sense than others. Do I know it, no. Not sure it’s go heavy heavy pass, obviously it’s not lean way to the run but a better play action balance in key spots this whole season or at least the points before the mentality of the collective started to waver might be the answer?
In this replay that balance is spot on for most of the game, what isn’t shown is those stalled drives in the mid to late third quarter. Ate some clock but sustained drives ending in even field goals would’ve put this one away.
Love the heart of this coach and will be so glad when we figure it out.
The PittBoss said it well in his introductory speech early early on, to play heavy handed bully ball you need crazy good offensive linemen… maybe we were close enough this year to allow us to believe it but not so strong that we could do it always?
That loss of surprise in offensive execution for quite a few points all season felt like our Achilles. It’s a subtlety. It’s not all trickeration it’s not all run run run, but there seemed to be spots where we had to call a play action pass to sustain drives and we ran ran ran.
It's official, the Pac-12 has by far the worst officiating crew to date.
Yes Arkansas we won but why did you let them come that far back to tie the game
@WARMACHINE2013 At least 15. 18 or 22 pt win had we scored on that drive and we keep Kansas from getting late garbage pts.
Because a fumble that wasn't a fumble happened. Game would have ended as a comfortable 15 point win otherwise.
I like the targeting call in 2ot just so that this game didn't have to end. It was obvious that's why they called that BS
That targeting call almost made me want to quit watching college football. That ref should get ridiculed in the McDonald's line for breakfast tomorrow. Ref's need to be replaced with automation across the sport. My dog could officiate better and would look better doing it.
I am just glad Coach Conservative didn't cause the players who gave there all to lose the game. Why does this coach start killing the clock late 3rd quarter? Then when he needs to run out the clock, we do razzle dazzle. It's beyond me.
Someone help me out, WHT was arkansas last score only worth 2 points instead of 6?
Starting in the 3rd OT it's only 2 point attempts the rest of the way. They changed it last year I think in order to keep from these super long OT games for player safety.
I quit watching pro football due to numerous reasons and now it seems that, with the transfer portal, opting out of bowl games, and poor officiating, they have just about ruined college football for me.
Exactly my sentiments. I quit watching pro football for various reasons---one is "no loyalty," no commitment to a team, just a business so gamblers can rack up $$$. This transfer portal is ruining major college football, for similar reasons. Corrupt human nature will turn it into an ugly mess.
I'm right there with you. If I don't want to watch moneyball on Sundays, why should I tune in to watch PeeWee Moneyball on Saturdays?
I actually watched this game precisely because these appear to be the kids who want to be hogs and I wanted to support them.
Everyone is talking about the officiating (and perhaps rightfully so), but what in the hell was that onsides kick? All of our front guys were going for blocks(?) and not the goddamn ball? LOL, terrible terrible, the refs had nothing to do with that shit.
Junior high footballers know better than to not pounce on an on sides kick. No excuse for that.
Pittman said in the post game press conference that the players weren't coached enough for that situation.
Those Pac-12 officials SUCKED! Pathetic and egregious officiating! Hopefully that crew is suspended at the beginning of the 2023 season. Glad the Hogs won.
Go Hogs!!! Hey refs sorry but we kicked yalls ass and Kansas ass in the end
The ending was rigged. Stupid Vegas
Horrible game overall.
ho lee shyte...
L O T S
of kansas OL Holding that was not called!
LL. OO. TT. SS
Yea, Trey Biddy mentioned that holding issue in his walk and talk.
Almost EVERY FREAKING PLAY!!
