If that is what you think that the term means, then we are not discussing the same issue.
My statement is that D1 coaches do not have a formal process in place to block individual officials from their games or their conferences. They simply do not possess this power.
However, I will not argue that they exert some influence and some of them may be able to informally request to the conference supervisor that they not have a specific official. It would be up to the supervisor of the conference whether or not he honors that.
The D1 coaches submit evaluations which are several pages in length on the officials following each game, but beyond that they do not have any formal input into the selection, hiring, firing, or assigning of the officials.
Anyone who says otherwise is full of it.
It is certainly possible that if you receive enough poor reviews that you will not be rehired for the next season, but that does not mean that you were scratched.

Everyone knows that one guy who they thought was a phenomenal referee but for some reason he just didn't get "his shot". Sometimes it is for that very reason.
You speak of Teddy V now, but (and I'm just asking here) was Teddy V anywhere near the respected official at the time of the Knight incident that he is now? Perhaps to a certain degree, as he'd been around more than 10 years, but I can't imagine he was seen then as he is now. Hell, most refs now respect him because of Knight's opinion.
