You can mark Louisiana State University head coach Brian Kelly as a thumbs down on those instant replays that he says are “game ruining.”
Kelly was angered last weekend when his game against the Florida Gators was interrupted five times while referees reviewed video on calls, according to Fox Sports.
LSU won the game 45-35, but the constant delays got under Kelly’s skin.
During his Monday presser, Kelly took aim at the consistent use of instant replays.
“There were things that happened in this game that — my biggest concern is that we’re just slowing the game down,” Kelly said Monday.
“Hopefully that’s something we can look at at the end of the season,” Kelly added. “Maybe it can be an instant replay on scored-only plays or a change in possession. If you feel it’s egregious, throw the red flag there. But it just seems like we’re slowing down the game. That’ll be a topic we can get to after the season is over.
Kelly continued to attack the workout on his radio show Thursday night.
“Ten times out of 10, the call holds up on the field. Unless it’s an LSU call, right?” Kelly said on his weekly radio show Thursday, according to ESPN. Is it just me? I just don’t think they like the guy up north.
Kelly added that it was triggered by the overturning of a fumble call against the Gators.
“Here’s how it was explained to us: If you break it down to the millisecond of a frame, his hand moves a bit forward a frame,” Kelly said. “So if we’re going to get to that level, it’s amazing. Like, instant replay ruins the game.”
