There has been talk in recent years of having a national “pool” of officials that work games and doing away with conference affiliations. In other words a crew might work in the B12 one week, the SEC the next, the ACC the next, etc. I’m in favor of it, but it would be an administrative headache and the conference supervisors are totally against it. BUT, it could be done. Maybe, through social media, public support, and media pressure (articles in The Athletic, ESPN, Press Box DFW, and even Muck, it could get it stated again.
