SEC Referees

Iíve noticed that SEC conference is using almost all new faces for their games this year, especially in the tournament. It seems like after their officials get experience they move on to other conferences. The Big 12 appears to use a lot of experienced referees. Does anyone know or have an idea of why officials seem to move on from the SEC to work in other conferences regularly? Is it for better pay?

Any thoughts

Consortiums. Big time officials being forced to show their allegiances to a single supervisor who has multiple conferences.

Yep. I've heard of more than one D1 official getting booted from one consortium because of "availability."

"Independent contractors"

Being an independent contractor works both ways. If you're difficult to use, don't expect to keep getting called to work. Just as you have the right to work when you want, the assignor also has the same right to not assign you at all if they don't like how much you're available to them.

Unfortunately, it's mostly pettiness between coordinators. There are supervisors who don't want their officials working for certain other supervisors. Not something you would see out West because the PAC-12 consortium covers so much land mass. SC knows what he is talking about.

You sure couldn't tell from your comments. And, the fact that you made this reply suggests you really don't quite grasp it either. You seem to want to have your cake and eat it too.

Well, since I only officiate high school basketball, that should be a hint to you that I have no dog in the fight.

Nice try, though.

It appears that the SEC coordinator has run off everyone. Doug Shows was the only long term SEC regular who worked the tournament this year and the Big 12 scooped up the rest.
