11.Feb.2011 Restructuring of Pac-12 Officials

The guy we've been complaining about for years, Dave Cutaia, has been asked to step down as coordinator of officiating. You can read about all the proposed changes here.

It's a lot of corporate, cheese-ball lingo, but the bottom line is that we should get better officials.

Remember all those guys who would show up to this blog and say our petitions and voice don't matter? I think they do matter. I know I personally bombarded Larry Scott via his lapdog Kirk Reynolds. I'm sure a lot of you did as well.

High five, beavlettes.

    I hope this means Jay Stricherz and company will be fired and get younger refs that don’t wear glasses that were made in the 50’s. there should be a test that evaluates a candidates competency level; as well as a physical fitness test. I’m thinking about the NFL ref that is as strong as an ox…or something to that effect. I just want better ref’s that will actually THROW out players who tackle opponents 15 yards out of bounds and slam them down onto the pavement…..Just a thought.

    Great news.

    A blast from the past.

      This video brings up two points:

      1. Pac-10 refs are incompetent.
      2. Riley rarely challenges calls.

        were coaches allowed to challenge that year? I thought it was booth review only. I guess he could have taken a timeout though.

        If that’s the UW/Bernard debacle (can’t view youtube at work), then I believe that Riley had already used a challenge in that game. And in the last couple minutes of a game, isn’t the challenge supposed to be called from the replay booth?

          In general, he doesn’t challenge. I forget the specifics of this case, but the DJ Woods fumble comes to mind as do a bunch of games/plays I can’t remember specifics.

        God, that brings back bad memories. I was screaming at the TV that there was “no way in hell you can make that call, it defies logic” and my wife was watching me melt down in horror. I remember the announcers were too dazed to protest that much, they thought for sure it would be overturned. Then the Huskies ran off a big gain…………..Can you imagine if the Beavs had lost that game?

    Everyone gets the shaft, but it seems the Beavs have received more than their fair share of them. I’d love a video montage of the worst of the worst over the past several years.

    But they are the Oregon State Beavers…so I suppose…who cares?

    Excellent news. Our officials have been the butt of jokes from around the country for several years.

    Now can we do the same with Bill McCabe?

    the craziest thing is the fact the timer and replay booth are provided by the home team. We got screwed by the replay booth verse AZ and screwed by the timer verse UCLA.

    Wow, Scott hired Mike Pereira as the interim. He means business.

      Pereira is a Douche, yes, with a capital D.

      This clown was an apologist for every screwed up call made in the NFL during his tenure. He merely spins things to support the egregious calls made by officials.
