The Kentucky Wildcats are getting railroaded by Georgia in front of their hometown fans. It’s been a maddening day for the No. 9 team in the nation, and in the third quarter the frustration boiled over as junior offensive guard Bunchy Stallings was ejected for contacting an official.

The contact was minimal, and it really doesn’t appear that Stallings had ill intent here. However, officials are off limits completely, and players have to know that. Clearly one of his teammates did, as Stallings had to be calmed down after the flag came out.
