I heard a radio interview with NCAA Head of Officiating John W. Adams during the halftime of today's Penn St. romp over Indiana.
When asked about changing protocols about officials "going to the monitor," Adams said something to the effect of, "We already made a rule change after the Purdue - Wisconsin game." Adams went on, "In that game, there was an official right in front of the play and he missed an elbow from the Wisconsin player. He didn't even go to the monitor."
There it is folks. The head of officiating can admit in a live interview what the Big Ten Conference studied and swept under the rug.
Take a look at the cheap-shot again.
It prompted a frickin' change in the rules.
Get your head out of your ass, Big Ten.
