No freaking doubt! Look, I could have not possibly cared less who won that game since i am not a college football fan (all NFL baby!) but I found myself watching that game and actually standing up and yelling at the TV due to those refs! Those holding calls were the worst I've ever seen, and this coming from someone who very, very rarely criticizes the refs. For me, it wasn't the "phantom" quality of the holds, it was the timing. It was almost as if they were waiting to see the complete outcome of the play......and THEN throw the flag if the play ended in Pitts favor.
