The SEC launched a Twitter account Monday called “SEC Officiating,” and its mentions soon turned into a raging dumpster fire.
“This account will serve as your source for rules, videos, statistics and activities inside the SEC Video Center,” the league announced.

The responses to this tweet blew up with some fans bringing up blown calls from past years.

What was the SEC thinking with this? Which consultants approved this idea?
I can only imagine what this account’s mentions will look like the first time the refs blow a call this season. It will be a train wreck, but admittedly a very entertaining one.
Football season can’t get here soon enough!
