    How much do Big 12 mens bball officials make?

    Anybody have any insight on this? Could 3 guys really make a $1,000 each plus expenses for a Tuesday night Baylor vs. ISU game (teams chosen randomly of course)? If so thats way better coin than I expected!!

    Found this on a Wiki: NCAA referees pay varies quite a bit by conference and by experience, but $1000 per game is closer to the minimum than the maximum.

    I think this is getting overblown a little bit. The good refs get something like 80 games a year or so, but the not so good ones probably get half that amount. It is a seasonal job with limited opportunities, everybody ******* at them/cusses them out, but nobody gives props when they do a good job.

    After every game, especially a loss, there is always somebody complaining about the refs. That job would suck.

    Does the $1,000 include travel and motel or do they pay it out of pocket?

    Stay away from the message boards, and it wouldn't be too bad of a job.

    A major conference like the Big 12 probably pays closer to $2000 and then they have to pay their travel expenses out of that. They used to pay a game fee plus a travel allowance, but a few years ago they simplified it into one payment.

    Some leagues pay each official differently based on his/her status or tenure but I'm not sure if they Big 12 does that or not.

    I'm sure getting reamed by Frank Martin, Coach K, and the like is a blast. In fact, I bet it makes the message boards look pretty weak sauce.

    If I knew I made the right call (like all refs should know/think) I couldn't care less what Frank Martin or Coach K has to say.

    All good refs know how to handle those situations, and if they realize they were wrong(watched the videoboard), they do a make up call on the other end.

    LOL. I'm just saying it's a thankless job. Obviously they do it, are wired for it, and don't care. But if you are an official, you have to love the game. You aren't doing it for money.

    Because to be told you suck, getting booed, etc., would get old really fast.

    Good refs don't do makeup calls. They try to make damn sure they don't screw up again.

    Makeup calls are the sign of a bad ref, not a good one.
