I'm just curious because it seems like lately there have been a ton of botched calls. I was curious about this following the ND touchdown where he fumbled at the two yard line, don't get me wrong, I could care less since UM won, but it certainly did have the potential to completely change the game.
This coupled with the controvesial call in Mashall V WVU's game on Friday made me wonder if maybe there isn't a better system than having conference hired refs, especially after the horrible job of officiating which we saw in last years LSU - Alabama game. Maybe I'm just being a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but didn't the SEC have more to gain as a conference by having Bama win (and go to the National Championship).
It all just got me wondering if maybe there is a better way to do this than having Conference hired refs.
