Robbery in Storrs

Why, in God's name, are former Big East refs allowed anywhere near a replay booth involving a Big East team against any other conference team?
Jack Cramer, a former Big East official, was the replay official in the booth who failed to overturn an obvious mistake in UConn's 22-17 win over Temple, a catch by Bruce Francis for the winning TD in the end zone that was ruled an incompletion.
Neutral replay officials should be the norm, not the exception, in cross-conference games.
Let's see here.
One of the major elements in any crime investigation is motivation.
Temple was kicked out of the Big East.
UConn is in the Big East.
UConn took Temple's spot in the Big East.
The Big East would look very bad if Temple handed one of its unbeaten schools its first loss.
The Big East would be completely impartial in any game involving Temple. ... yeah, right, and I also believe those 32 Heaven's Gate people who committed suicide in 1996 are riding on the Hale-Bopp Comet now instead of dead in their graves.
Not.
Morley Safer or Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes would love this story.
No further words necessary, just the words of fans from two big East schools, UConn and Rutgers.
