Spiral leaving aj's hand ... Spiral as it passes socalled tippers hand... Looked like a blown call that really cost us! Next play block fg for TD
No doubt bad call ref pressured by Ga sideline.
Completely blown call. That whole ref crew should not allowed to do FBS games.
Or Eddie Lacy's "fumble" that was really a touchdown.
I thought officiating was terrible. I'm even objective enough to say we got a few phantom calls ourselves.
Terrible call. I didn't think it was tipped when it happened live and it definitely wasn't tipped on replay.
Might have been a bad call, but the one of the refs immediately signaled tipped ball. I'm waiting for my download of the game to finish so I can review the play in more detail. I'll reserve my final opinion of the play until that time.

You don't call tipped ball unless you are sure. Easier to go back and review it that way. Bad job by ref.
Replay definately showed no tip. Lots of bad calls.

That was a terrible call.
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
I agree with you 100%. However, if a official calls a tipped ball as was the case here (right or wrong), the question is did the defensive player rely on that tipped ball call to contact the receiver, and was there the dreaded "indisputable evidence" to reverse the call???

TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
I am a referee, I have watched the replay over and over, EL did not get the ball over the line, that was actually a damn good call, unfortunately for us.
Vern and Gary said they sent a runner, the play was reviewed, not enough to overturn.
If the "tip ball" was inconclusive ,then it should have been inconclusive as too it being not tipped as it would havee been to it being tipped, tie to the runner so to speak, we got screwed on that one.
Are you 100% sure?
Photo evidence says you are wrong. Were you in the replay booth? I kid I kid :)
They didn't even stop play. Not enough time to give it a decent look. That is a bailout excuse. At least blow the pay dead and give it a real look
That was the UGA bench, not the refs
That picture is not conclusive to overturn the call. You can't assume the ball is over the line. A camera shot looking directly down the goal line is needed.
Now that I have the game downloaded I was able to review the play in depth. Immediately after the ball fell to the ground incomplete, the umpire demonstratively and repeatedly signaled a tipped ball. The Georgia bench had nothing to do with it.
Was the ball tipped. I would say probably not, but it was definitely very, very close. That said, I don't see indisputable visual evidence from the replays shown on the broadcast to overturn the call.
The field goal attempt by Foster was terrible. I'm not sure that even if Cornelius Washington didn't stick his hand up that the ball wouldn't have hit Michael Williams in the helmet. That's how low the kick was. The kick appeared to be on target though, so had it gotten past the LOS, I'm guessing it would have been good.
The video clearly shows the ball was not tipped. The call should have been overturned.

Disagree on the tip but whatever. Horrible hold from AJ on the FG I don't think fosters fault
