Petrino Reprimanded by SEC for Comments
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas
coach Bobby Petrino has been reprimanded by the Southeastern Conference
after publicly criticizing officials who worked his team’s loss to
Florida last weekend.
The league announced
its action Thursday night, a day after saying the officiating crew from
the Razorbacks’ 23-20 loss would be suspended. The officials came under
scrutiny after a personal foul call on Arkansas’ Malcolm Sheppard in
the fourth quarter. The league said there was no video evidence to
support the call.
Petrino has been critical of the officials, although the league didn’t specify which comments earned the reprimand.
