HOOVER, Ala. — In an effort to streamline the officiating process, the Southeastern Conference launched a website and Twitter page dedicated to league officiating Monday morning.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey made the announcement during his opening speech at the 2019 SEC Media Days.

Just before Sankey’s announcement, the SEC Officiating Twitter page tweeted for the first time:

The conference plans to post replay videos and explain calls to the general public to provide a more transparent view on the officiating process.

Of course, it’s too early in the process to tell the success of the new site and Twitter page, but it’s a step toward transparency and the methodology behind calls made by officials.
