At the end of the day, this comes down to who you work for. NCAA officials work for the NCAA when it comes to the tournament. So if he did something that did not make them feel good, he can and will be punished. It is their tournament and can make whatever decisions they wish. TV worked tons of games on TV this year after that incident, so he was clearly the top guy on many lists.

I think he is a great official and this situation was the type that takes place when players get too big for their britches. I will just leave it at that fact.

Peace

And he's one of the very few officials who could handle that situation the way he did and, for the most part, not miss a beat when it comes to his schedule. For most of us, if we handled a situation like that, our season and possibly career would be over.

Not saying that's right or wrong, just reality.

I think part of the issue was because it was TV and who made an issue of this was the problem. I really do not think that most of us would have had much of a problem in the long run when it was not on video or a national broadcast. This to me smells like PR more than anything. Which is the business we are often in at the end of the day in the first place.

Peace
