You think a big time D1 official who has worked the tournament multiple times makes the mistake of not getting his paperwork in order?

Yes, Jim Burr had it happen one season.

Thought they couldn't work both NIT and NCAA. Kimble worked the Houston NIT game and had both first and second round games. Good for him! Good people and good referee!

They have to have so many hours (48?) of idle time between NIT and NCAA game.

My favorite NCAA official again this season is Kipp Kippinger.

Yeah, but Stuart, DeRosa, AND Dorsey?? Dorsey was the alternate for the Final Four last year.

My guess for Stuart and DeRosa is that they didn't like their assignments last year (both only worked regional semifinal), knew JD was not going to advance them furthur, and took an early vacation.

Shame cuz those two guys are still among the best. It's not like DeRosa dropped off the cliff like Burr did a couple years ago.

If Ted Valentine makes another Final Four, he will break the record for most years between first final four and last final four currently held at twenty-one years by Jody Sylvester and Jim Burr.

Separate topic - anyone else notice there seems to be more "tweety bird" whistle blowing in the tournament this year? What I mean by this is multiple blasts of the whistle to make the call.

No more this year than other years.

And I have no problem with it.

Best I have SEEN this year are Corbett, Driscoll, Ayers, Steratore.
Mostly watch Big East (Villanova grad & devoted fan), plus some other high ranks or rivalries.

JD is the best in the game right now. Their loss that he is not calling. Stuart still calls a good game as does Dorcy.

Joe DeRosa.

Obviously that's probably a list of who will work tomorrow.

I noticed a LOT of Lead officials helping mark 3 point attempts on the wing today, wonder if that was something JD emphasized.

Tony Greene gets First Tech of Tournament™ award! Could have tossed Richard Pitino but decided not to.

I have it from an unimpeachable source that Joe did not officiate the first weekend for personal reasons.

And the reason for missing other games?

Um, we've only conducted the first weekend of games. There haven't been any other games.

The NCAA Championship manual outlines the process through which officials will be selected for the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. They come from the 96 which worked the previous two rounds of the tournament. Hence, it seems clear that someone can't jump in at the 3rd round.

Sure, makes perfect sense, my mistake.

I do not recall seeing him in any conference tournament games(he probably worked though) or the First Four played on 3/14. I also was not considering 3/16 (Thurs) a weekend game.
