Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops was still fuming Wednesday that running back Chris Rodriguez was called down short of the end zone during the second quarter in a 29-13 loss at Auburn. Two plays later, Kentucky threw an interception and the game took a drastic turn.
The SEC took a look at the play, and Stoops decided to hold onto his money rather than criticize the decision publicly and take a fine.
“Yeah, I did (hear from the SEC),” Stoops said during the weekly SEC teleconference. “Got an explanation from the league, and I’m really not permitted to reveal what that discussion went like. I don’t really want to part with the cash if I really vented and told you what I was thinking about so I can’t really talk about it.”
Take a look at the play and make the call. Is Stoops right to be mad? Clay says this is a touchdown.
In what world does this ball not break the plane?!?!? And after a review?! Two plays later, Kentucky throws a pick. Game changer pic.twitter.com/jZd8wXrknD

And now Auburn gets a 100 yard pick six. Kentucky got completely and totally screwed there. 14 point officiating error.
