I'm not surprised that Steward Mandel sounds like an obnoxious tool in the latest College Football Mailbag at SI. But:
I've watched the videos, and they were obviously bad calls. You know what else they were? The type of bad calls that take place in almost every single football game.


I hate to break it to you, people, but bad calls are like airline delays -- they're going to happen.
You know what else is going to happen? Car accidents. Adultery. Irritating, under-qualified sports writers. But that doesn't mean that they're acceptable, or people should just ignore them, or act like they don't matter. Bad calls, especially in close games, devalue the sport and the efforts of those involved. They should be fixed, not brushed off by chubby idiots.
