Pac-12 reprimands Sarkisian for officiating comments

Steve Sarkisian AP

The Pac-12 reprimanded Washington coach Steve Sarkisian for “comments to the media this week regarding Pac-12 officiating and the Conference’s officiating process, including disclosing private communications he had with the Conference office,” per a press release sent out Thursday.

Earlier this week, Sarkisian said (via the Seattle Times) the Pac-12 reached out to apologize for a hands to the face call on offensive lineman Dexter Charles that wiped out a touchdown in Washington’s 41-31 loss to UCLA last Friday. The Pac-12 told Sarkisian the call should not have been made, and the touchdown — which would’ve cut UCLA’s lead to 27-14 — shoud’ve stood.

Revealing that information led to the Pac-12 levying some sort of penalty on Sarkisian, though it’s not known if a fine was part of the punishment.

    I wonder how many of these “secret apologies” the Pac-12 has to make each week for their inept officiating.

    Pac-12 officiating errors are purposely being made private because Larry scott is a boob and knows nohing about managing a football conference, and his officiating commitee is only focused on making the. Pac-12 relevant, when inf act, the poor officiating does the opposite. You put SEC style refs in the Pac-12 games and you’ll have better games and more fun games to watch. The SEC refs lets the players play, not the sissy-assed Pac-12 commish and refs.

    Scott is trying to feminized college football, andt hat tinks of 3 day old fish. Sorry ladies.

    That REALLY makes the Pac-12 look bad.

    PAC 12 officiating deserves their well deserved reputation for substandard (a generous characterization) officiating. They cheated the Badgers out of a BCS bid and inflated an ASU team that should be 7-3 at this point to their #17 rank at 8-2. Their policy forbidding outside officials from participating in PAC 12 home games is suspect and makes the conference a pariah in the NCAA.

    Is the training of the PAC 12 officials so bad they can’t go a week without embarrassing themselves. The conference has a lot of nerve calling out a coach for speaking about being wronged.
