Mic'd up official

Watching the Kansas @ K-State game just now and I heard Musberger and Knight talking about an official being mic'd up some time in the future. Did anyone hear this/know what they're talking about? I would love to catch that and hear what is said in a big time D1 game.

They used to mic up officials during NBA games. There's even a clip of Bennett Salvatore talking with Allen Iverson and Larry Brown and even handing him a T. They stopped doing that a while ago. I doubt you'd hear anything good. Couldn't air it haha

Not long ago, someone posted a video of a guy who was mic'd up. I think it was Rasheed Wallace he T'd up. He even said "Whack" when he T'd him!!

I don't see the NCAA ever approving this.

So it sounds like no one else was watching during that part of the game. Shoot. Thanks for the clips though, why the hell does what's his face carry around cash in his pocket while on the floor? That's bad.

I bet he uses it to keep track of the possession arrow...you know how the table crew can be sometimes.

It would have been very bad if that game was from a few years ago, and Tim Donaghy was on the crew.

I was watching when they made that comment. It is part of Rivalry Week for the ESPN family of networks. For one of the games this week, one of the officials will be mic'd. I can't tell you which game or who the official will be but I did hear it too.

The official's name is Joe Crawford.
