It's a matter of not having to take heat for a glaring mistake during the high profile event.

Anyone agree or disagree with me?
Agree of course, I think the NCAA is ok with whatever keeps them out of the press.

A minute of complacency ruined 24 years of excellence.

If you're asking me, the tournament officials have it easy in comparison. At least they can try again next year.

Accountability....is a powerful and humbling thing.
I have to agree. I noticed that a couple of officials who screwed up rules situations in last year's tourney were back for games this year.

Example, during last year's tourney at the start of an OT an official whistled a violation for a jumper grabbing the ball after it bounced on the floor. My opinion is that is not a tourney level official.

Not just one, but two advanced. I have yet to see the CE for myself but it most likely "flew under the radar".

It is interesting that all for "R"s from the Greeneville region are working either the Sweet 16 or Elite 8.

After seeing some of the notable names that didn't work the Sweet Sixteen (Higgins and Kimble are 2 of the big ones I follow), and not having access to the NCAA manual, what is the rule about officials advancing to the next round if they didn't work the previous round?

I find it hard to believe that at the very least, Higgins' season is done. Kimble's might be. Is it possible that either of them can still work a regional final even if they didn't work a regional semifinal?

10 officials go to each regional site- 6 will work the Sweet 16, 3 will work the Elite 8, one is the alternate for all three games. Lots of April names (Driscoll, Higgins, Stephens, Eades, McCall, to name a few) will probably show up today unless others had better first weekends.

From what I understand, Pat Driscoll (nor anyone from the Wisc vs Villanova crew) advanced. Randy McCall will work the KC regional final.
