Suggestion for NCAA re:  Reffing

So I just re-watched the last 12 minutes of the UofL/Florida game. Something happened in the technical foul that caught my eye. Karl Hess performed the most over-the-top dramatic Technical you could imagine: VERY aggressive "T" signal and then a VERY aggressive pointing at Pitino. These types of histrionics literally reminded me of the WWF.

Think about it -- all of the refs who try to be the star of the show (you know who they are) are always playing to the crowd with way overly-dramatic signals. Just envision all of those times where there's a loose ball out of bounds and the refs makes a way-too-dramatic gesture that the ball is going the other direction. Or, think about all the charge/block calls that are called in an overly-dramatic way.

I seriously believe that if the NCAA put the kibosh on these WWF-style histrionics that you would put an end to all of these goofballs and their arbitrary technicals and play-to-the-crowd-one-way-or-another calls.
