doing the UCLA vs. USC game have done wcc games this season. I have seen every one of them.
The notion that there are specific officials who only do one conference or another is not true. These officials are taken from a pool of officials in the western region of the US and they do games all over this area in a variety of conferences.
For whatever reason, the seem to be especially prone to officiating like high school referees when they are in high school gyms. Also, I haven’t noticed the same propensity to being biased against BYU this season like I have in the past.
The Pac-12, Mountain West, Big West, West Coast and Western Athletic Conferences are further expanding their men’s basketball officiating consortium to include the Big Sky Conference for the 2016-17 season.
The consortium is designed to promote consistency - in training, development and evaluation - in officiating in the western U.S., and provide a larger, more diverse pool of officials for assignment. The Pac-12 and Mountain West established an officiating alliance prior to the 2013-14 season, and the Big West, WCC and WAC participated in its training programs before the creation of the consortium in advance of the 2015-16 season.
It’s reached that point. Everyone is so unwilling to consider my opinions and observations that they just naturally assume the worst or disagree with everything I write. Floyd thinks I wrote something I didn’t. Harold thinks my questions are irrelevant. Grasshopper disagrees for the sake of it and nothing more…
