As a biased observer, it was obvious to me that the officials were not calling the game fairly. With this in mind, I saw something that was a bit strange and curious. Somewhere late in the third quarter there was a timeout. The lead official went to the scorer's table and put on a headset apparently talking to someone. She then went to the other officials and had a lengthy conversation. I told my wife to watch our next play, because I believed the officials were going to call a weak foul against SC, and they did, eliciting a loud chorus of boos from the SC fans. I am real curious to whom the lead official was talking on the headphone, and what was said. Just my observation and opinions.
