    Yep. I quit at a Masters after I realized that education was making me loopy.

    Re: Ed Hightower is actually....

    John Higgins is without a doubt the most inconsistent ref I have ever witnessed. How he gets so many games is beyond any course of rational thought.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Ed Hightower is actually....

    It's pretty funny actually..looking at umpires and referees of other pro/college sports are usually pretty successful. NFL for example: Ed Hochuli co owns a law firm in Phoenix, Mike Carey owns a pretty successful outdoor gear/equipment company, Gerry Austin has a PhD and is a retired school administrator, etc.

    Re: Ed Hightower is actually....

    It's funny cause we get an automated phone call from Ed Hightower at work every time Edwardsville schools are cancelled because a co-worker's children go there. I always figured it was somebody with the same name, never realized it was actually the same person.
