The Pac-12 issued a statement saying that Oregon State University coach Craig Robinson has been reprimanded by the Pac-12 conference for criticizing the officiating after the Beavers loss to Oregon on Sunday.

Reprimanded = fined.

Here’s the video of it  and here’s a story about it from the Gazette Times

Here’s the statement from commissioner Larry Scott.

“The Pac-12 has specific rules that prohibit our coaches from making public comments about officiating, and this prohibition specifically includes comments that create doubts about the credibility of the conference’s officiating program. The conference expects each Pac-12 coach to adhere to our standards of conduct and to conduct himself or herself in a manner which will reflect credit on the institution and the Conference.”

Hmmm, doubts about the credibility of the conference’s officiating program? I don’t think Craig Robinson’s comments create doubts. I think the doubts were created by a group of officials that have created the doubts on their own. While every fan complains about officiating, I will say the officiating in the league this year has been weak at best. It’s just not good. And if Scott doesn’t recognize that, then the coaches should continue to criticize.
