LSU football is the No. 1 topic of discussion every day on SEC Country’s One Team, One Podcast. Host Carter ‘The Power” Bryant shares why former Tigers superstar Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars were jobbed by the referees in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.
Also, Bryant talks about how the weirdness and inconsistency of pass interference and holding calls were on full display in the game, why citing how many schools have NFL players in the playoffs can be inconsistent, the struggles of the LSU basketball team, if Lowell Narcisse is the next JaMarcus Russell and more.
Leonard Fournette was hurt by the referees
Leonard Fournette’s amazing rookie season ended in tears as the New England Patriots came back from 10 points down in the AFC Championship Game to win 24-20 on Sunday. Bryant explains how weird it was the Jaguars were called for six penalties for 98 yards while the Patriots were only whistled for one for 10 yards.
Here is Bryant’s full Twitter breakdown of how two critical pass interference calls wrongly went in favor of the Patriots, which ultimately led to victory:
Pass interference spot fouls change everything. It’s the easiest call to mainuplate as a ref. As @AndyGlockner @PFF_Sam & others have noted, this was a bad PI call. Led to #Pats TD before the half. https://t.co/W4E8EQ0StJ
