Pac-12 supervisors and administrators need to prove they care about officiating

Pac-12 supervisors and administrators need to prove they care about officiating

Bad calls will be made by officials. That happens. We are imperfect, and game officials are no exception. However, when the clock runs longer than it should, and when aspects of game administration are clearly botched in the heat of the moment, officials have a chance to huddle, confer, and correct that kind of mistake.

It’s fine. No problem. Just put five seconds back on the clock, and that immediate error can be fixed and wiped away.

What happens when an officiating crew can’t be bothered to fix an obvious game administration and scoreboard clock error? That’s when it is clear that the administrators and supervisors must insist on a culture of accountability.

Will we see such accountability in the upper reaches of Pac-12 Conference leadership and the people in charge of supervising officials (Merton Hanks in particular)?
