The phone call from Frank to Dale to tell him he had the job as head coach @ Arkansas. Bar none the WORST.

How about the Oklahomo V Oregon game last year.
I hate Chokelahoma but they got jobbed on that call.

That was a horrible call, but admittedly I loved seeing OU get jobbed and then hearing them whine about it.

1982 Arkansas vs. SMU

Yep, that was it!  The referee who made the infamous call was one Horton Nsersta.  The stakes were huge with a Cotton bowl berth awaiting the winner.  Nsersta just could not contain himself from helping SMU prevail.

This call was the reason that the NCAA went to a 15 yard penalty for pass interference rather than a spot foul like it was that day that the refs took the game away from the hogs.

Nsersta received a legion of phone calls from Hog fans all over the country criticizing his ridiculous call.  He said he was normally a Razorback fan and followed the hogs on TV...trying to defuse the furor over his call.

What about the charging call on brandon dean when he hit the floater at the buzzer to beat (or so we thought) then highly ranked illinois in a nationall televised ESPN 2 game...believe it was in chicago...dont remember exact year but the game started at like 11 am...
he let the ball go before he fell into the guy and they should have counted the basket and didn't. i can hardly ever remember this call being made before this time. even the announcers were saying it was a bad call. now it seems like they award the basket while calling charging all the time

Yep, we got jobbed against Illinois that day....the offending call was made by Ted Hillary (who back then did almost every Illinois game).  He still does a lot of Illinois games.  Hillary has never been a friend to the Razorbacks.

Arkansas vs. Georgia, SEC basketball tournament, 199?.....referee places basketball on the floor and begins his 5 second count while the Hogs are still in a huddle by the bench during a timeout.   Georgia ended up winning and that call forced a crucial turnover.  I still want to hit that guy.

The villain that day against Georgia was Andre Patilla (now retired).  He always hated the Razorbacks - was even reprimanded once by the SEC for giving Hog fans the finger when exiting the court.

I have always thought that an excellent deterrent to cheating officials would be a weekly television series featuring the weeks most ridiculous officials calls.  Let's face it...not all horrendous calls are just mistakes....many of them are calculated to advance a certain team.

This television series I think would be one of the highest rated shows on television.  ESPN could have some fun with it...naming the show "The worst Damn Officiating of the Week"

I think the officials should be named and their home towns revealed....Also reveal any connections (or history) to the universities involved.

If the conferences won't do anything (and they won't), then let television reveal their names and all their details.

Officials right now have NO accountability.  Coaches and players have to face the media and talk about failures after big games - why don't officials have to be accountable to anyone?

Look at certain officials who have made ridiculous calls - they usually get bigger pay days and bigger assignments.  Take Tom Eades for instance.  He is the sorry excuse of a referee who robbed us against LSU when Mike Jones hit a 3 pointer at the buzzer....clearly before the buzzer with 2 official signalling a "3".  He reviewed the play and took the "3" point basket away ....we go to overtime on the road and lose.  He gets suspended for 3 weeks from all SEC games but thereafter he gets premier TV games....even officiating in the Final Four just last year.

     The Liberty Bowl, Arkansas versus Tennessee -- Tennessee fumbles, Tom Reed recovers the fumble, stands up and hands the ball to the referee, and he awards t he ball to Tennessee

Is that the game where there was almost a riot and the officials had to be escorted out of the stadium?

Yeah, Frank Broyles chased the refs out of the stadium.  Several players and assistants were hot on their heels as well.  It was an ugly ending.

How about being on the Texas five when a field goal will give you a win, and calling a GD pass play which Jones promptly fumbles on and losing 22-20? Too many bad calls by HDN to list! That was the difference in a bowl game and 5-6. Of course, when you can go 5-6 and not get fired, why would you care?

indiana st. vs arkansas

That was the second worst basketball call I ever saw.

THE worst hoops call EVER was the Soviets versus the USA in the 1972 Munich Olympic Gold Medal game.  Those refs made it clear that the final play would be rerun until the Soviets got the play right, and even forced the USA squad move its guy covering the inbound pass move back so the guy inbounding it could see the court better.  The USA players to this day have never accepted the silver medals from that game, and a few have made provisions in their wills which prevent any of their descendents/relatives from collecting them in the future.

I'll put it this way:

Keith Jackson was calling the game, and if I remember correctly, his comments on the play were along the lines of:  "I don't care WHO wins this ball game.  Folks, THAT was a BAD CALL!!!"

At LSU. Time running out. Their player catches the ball well inbounds. Knee down. Couldn't even reach the sideline. Ref" out of bounds"stops clock for Lsu who has no timeouts. Definitely determined the outcome of the game. Petrino era,can't remember what year. I was there . Someone on Hogville has it as their avatar.

It's the most obvious and egregious example of a sorry, thieving official simply cheating one team out of a win that I can remember.  This wasn't a judgement call, like spotting the ball when a player falls forward, a clip, or a pass interference.  The LSU player was five feet inside the field of play and the official is right there, staring down the sideline with a perfect view of the play.

No, that sorry ****** didn't make a mistake.  He intentionally robbed Arkansas so LSU would have a chance to win the game.  He is a cheater and a thief.  I hope he ends up selling pencils on a street corner or living under a bridge...one that is rat infested and leaks when it rains.

It was 2009 in Baton Rouge.

Perhaps the worst call, perhaps not --- but one of the most disappointing that I can remember.

1962

Arkansas vs Texas in Austin.

Game not televised.

Razorbacks lead the Longhorns 3-0 in the fourth quarter when Danny Brabham fumbled in the end zone (some say he was well into the end zone when the ball came loose).  But of course only Razorback fans saw it that way.  Longhorns subsequently drove the length of the field (following another defensive stop deep in Texas territory), scored a touchdown, and won 7-3.

Had they won, Razorbacks would have finished the season 10-0, compared to national champion USC who had a 9-1 record.

Here is a excerpt from Arkansas Razorback Football History - The Greatest Decade:

"As an example of how close the Hogs were to the national championship summit  in 1962, consider the following.

The 1962 season brought a 9-1 record going into the Sugar Bowl against Ole Miss in New Orleans. The only loss up to this point had been a 7-3 loss to Texas on a touchdown by Tommy Ford. Once again, Texas would play the part of spoiler. The game would be played on October 20, 1962, when the #7 Arkansas Razorbacks would square off against the #1 Texas Longhorns in Austin. How stacked against the Hogs was this?

However, the Hogs would score first during the second quarter coming from a 41 yard field goal off the toe of Tom McKnelly. Leading by 3-0 in the third quarter, fullback Danny Brabham was hit by Longhorn linebackers Pat Culpepper and Johnny Treadwell on second and goal as he fought for the end zone from the three yard line. Culpepper's helmet hit the ball squarely causing it to squirt free ending up on the ground in the end zone. The ruling was a fumble, recovered by Texas. DECISION: Touchback. Texas ball on the 20.

Instead of the scoreboard reading Arkansas 10 and Texas 0, it remained at 3-0. After the touchback, the Longhorns were stopped and the Hogs took over and were able to drive to a fourth and one from the Texas 12 yard line. Unable to make the required one yard, the drive stopped and possession for the last time was given to Texas.

On first down, Longhorn quarterback Duke Carlisle lost two yards putting the ball squarely on the ten yard line. This is where Texas would now begin their final 90 yard, 20 play drive. With only 36 seconds left in the game, Tommy Ford would score his winning touchdown on a three yard run. Prior to this drive, Texas was able to gain only one first down throughout the entire second half.

Had the game ended just one minute earlier or had Brabham's touchdown counted, the Hogs would have been contending for their first football national championship. As a result, the national championship and the dream of a perfect season had "gone by the wayside". At that time, the National Championship was awarded prior to the bowl games. USC won it with a record of 9-1. Without the loss at Texas, the Hogs would have had a record of 10-0 and been undefeated going into their bowl game giving them an uncontested National Championship."

Imagine that.  Competing for the national championship in your 5th year after winning or tying for the conference championship the previous 3 years.  When you walk away you leave the next coach with the players for the best team of his run here.

Nice hire, Barnie.

There could be a difference between the "worst" call and the most important call that went against the Hogs.  In 1962 we had bad calls against Texas that likely cost us a national title.  We all remember the 1969 "Big Shootout" and the usual bad calls with all the officials being from the state of Texas.

However, with the '69 game we would still have had to win the Cotton Bowl to wrap up the national title.  The game that gets me is the '66 Sugar Bowl following the undefeated '65 season.  We were 10-0 playing a 7-3 LSU team.  Our QB got hurt and we lost 14-7.  All we had to do was win that game and we had an uncontested national title.  Oh, that was painful.  I think Broyles later said it was more painful than the '69 loss to Texas.  It's also unimaginable that we could have won national titles in 1962, 1964, 1965 and 1969.  If we had won 4 titles in 8 years, it would have made us a true national power and changed the long-term trajectory of Hog football.  So, ANY call in that 1966 Cotton Bowl could be considered the "most important."

Multiple calls in 2009 vs. Florida. The officials handed that game to Florida and even the broadcasting crew were calling them out. If I recall correctly, that officiating crew was suspended for a time after that game.

Cannot believe it took 3 pages for this to come up. This was by far one of the biggest screw jobs I have ever seen. They're all bad, but the call at 1:06 is next level awful.

This was going to be my vote, too. I’m thinking it was the first time, or one of a very few times, that the SEC publicly admonished an officiating crew. Acknowledged their wrongdoing and suspended the rest of the season and no post-season assignments or something?? It was that %#&@*$%#^ Marc Curles and his sorry crew that screwed up that game. They aren’t fit to officiate a Pop Warner game. I think they had screwed up a game earlier that year, too. LSU vs Georgia, maybe?

Arkansas vs Florida in 2009 is my vote just because of multiple horrible calls and no-calls, but this is a close 2nd. I was too young to remember it, but I’ve seen replays of SMU in 82. Awful...

I lived In Knoxville a few years ago, and a guy I got to be friends with is a fire breathing UT fan. Obsessive. He was at that Liberty Bowl game, and even he admits that it was a “questionable call” in UT’s favor. That’s about as close as that guy will ever come to saying UT didn’t deserve to win it because of a blatant mistake. I think I was told that was a SEC crew. I wonder if that’s when rules were changed so that officiating crews could not officiate a bowl game where one of that conference’s teams was playing?

Arkansas came close to winning 6 national titles in the 1960s instead of just one in 1964 (62, 64, 65, 66, 68, 69), and 3 more in the 1970s (75, 77, 79). It could also be strongly argued that they were oh-so-close in 1988, 1989, and 1998.

I focus on the 2009 LSU game and the cheating ref who made the "out of bounds" call not because the game was the most important we ever played, but because the call was so blatantly dishonest.  There is no way the official could have "missed it".  It wasn't close, he didn't have to look for possession or anything else that might cause him to not focus on where the ball carrier's knee... and entire body for that matter...hit the turf, and he was in perfect position.

He's just dishonest, a thief who wanted LSU to win and stole a game from the Arkansas players, staff, and fans.

By the way, that 2009 team finished 8-5 despite having the Florida and LSU games taken from them on the road.  That should have been a 10 win team.

Leaning toward the Call Jeff Long made to BB, to hire him away from Wisconsin.

Other than that.. the multiple calls in that Florida game that even the announcers sounded like they were ready to just cut off the mics and give up..

     The Liberty Bowl, Arkansas versus Tennessee -- Tennessee fumbles, Tom Reed recovers the fumble, stands up and hands the ball to the referee, and he awards t he ball to Tennessee

This one. Worst of all time.

The Tony Bua Roughing the QB call versus Florida.
I was at that game and we were going nuts in the stands with the comeback.  it wasn't a good call but it wasn't horrible either.  I've seen much worse including the 1982 SMU game (I was at that one also).  That was robbery!

Multiple calls in 2009 vs. Florida. The officials handed that game to Florida and even the broadcasting crew were calling them out. If I recall correctly, that officiating crew was suspended for a time after that game.

I was too young to remember SMU but this is the game that comes to mind.

I was aghast after that game.

I will throw another basketball one in there. Moses Kingsley offensive foul against Florida in 2017. It wasn't as much of a game changer as some of these other ones mentioned but almost just as terrible.

Basketball wise -All the calls against UNC in 2017. Nothing like the guy being clearly out of bounds. Or the block that was a charge. or any of the others

Cannot believe it took 3 pages for this to come up. This was by far one of the biggest screw jobs I have ever seen. They're all bad, but the call at 1:06 is next level awful.

Agree.  Marc Curles is still out there officiating SEC games.

I've slept since then, but didn't we fumble and then recover that ball?  And don't forget the bogus call on the made field goal that they took away.
