    There are no exclusive Big 12 officials. There are officiials who work Big 12 games but they all work in other leagues as well. Expect to see more of the same.

    You will in general be seeing the same guys you've seen all year. This isn't like the NCAA Tourney where you might not even recognize any of the guys doing the games.

    Re: Big XII Championship Officiating

    After the Iowa State/k*nsas debacle a couple weeks ago, the Big 12 office only said that O'Neill's future assignments would be adjusted. However, they never said the (number of) assignment would be adjusted down...

    To clarify, I only liked this because I couldn't find the negative rep button.

    Rest assured all, I will bet Kirk Ferentz' salary that we will not be seeing Mr. O'Neill or Mr. Smith at the Big 12's.
