It's a good question. I don't have an easy answer for it.
I would like to see officials held accountable in some fashion. Maybe have them be part of the post-game press conferences where they can be bombarded by questions from the press about why they officiated the game the way they did. Hopefully at the bare minimum they'll get a verbal smackdown from the Big 12 Supervisor of Officiating.
I wonder if this was the "best" crew the Big 12 could have sent to us, considering it was a Big Monday game on ESPN. Who are the best officials in the Big 12 anyway? Or at least the most competent, I'd settle for that right now.

Can the Big 12/NCAA reprimand them in any way for something like this?
The B12 apologized to Mizzou after McCarney beat them in his last game. It was that holding call on the shotgun QB sneak. If the B12 didn't apologize to ISU after making that offsides calling on the onside kick in the Baylor game last year, I don't see how they'd apologize after this block/charge call.
