    Don't expect much to come of this.



    They should look at the officiating during the whole conference season IMO rather than just the tournament ... the CU-ASU game in Boulder would be a good place to start.

    With Larry Scott running the show, expect all this to be swept under the rug.

    They should ask Ed Rush to help work with the commission. I believe he's an expert and independent of the P12

    Slade why the huge sudden turn on Scott you seem as unhappy with him as some are with Bohn.

    His handling of this Ed Rush situation is a huge turn off.

    His failure to secure more televisions for the Pac-12 Network is also a huge turn off.

    I don't think anything potentially dirty was going on in that game. That was just officials letting the game get away from them.

    I would have said that before the whole Ed Rush thing became public. In fact, I genuinely believed the Pac 12 was full of well-intentioned refs who executed calls inconsistently. Now I don't know.

    I would like to be on this commission. I could be counted on to be as free of personal vendettas as Ed Rush.

    I don't think there was anything crooked going on in that game ... just that the officiating was horrendous. Don't you think that merits a review?

    Yes most people get reviews in their jobs.

    The whole of NCAA basketball officials needs a review. I took this release to mean they're specifically looking at possible corruption.

    Rush is gone that was the end goal, who cares how he got there, especially when we are talking California labor law?

    :yeahthat:

    It's sometimes good to know that I'm not alone in my delusions.

    On topic, there should probably be a review of the officiating in every sport, not just Men's Basketball.

    I don't expect much to come of this, and even if there's a major overhaul, what good would it do long-term?

    Refereeing in the men's college game has become a joke. I thought it was isolated to the Pac-12 until the tournament, but now I realize it's nationwide.

    The title game itself was a travesty.

    The fact that Karl Hess was reffing in the Final Four says all you need to know about the state of refereeing in college basketball. The Pac-12 has it quite awful, but the reign of terror Karl Hess and Jamie Luckie have had on ACC country is no better. Hess and a few others are notorious and this has been going on for years. Hess will stoop at nothing to **** over anyone not named Duke or UNC. This is a guy who had security forcefully eject Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani after Corchiani laughingly said "bad call" (which it was) while sitting in his seat. That's hardly an exception. His reign of terror knows no bounds.
