Referee “accidentally” tackles South Carolina quarterback.

Watch as the the referee, Wilbur Hackett, Jr., demonstrates great technique in throwing a forearm into South Carolina quarterback Steven Garcia.  The referee was awarded the MVP of his Kentucky Wildcats football team when he played linebacker in the late 60’s and early 70’s.  Hackett was cleared of any wrongdoing by his conference, the SEC, as the incident in the SC game was ruled “inadvertent” contact.  What do you think?

    Wow! He got a little too into the game and forgot that he is watching, not playing.

    seems pretty obvious that this was intentional… did they ever figure out what this guy was thinking?
