I posted this under the Women's B-ball forum as well, but apparently Violet Palmer is going to be the person taking over the women's officiating in the same position as Big Game Dave...

Violet Palmer joins WCC

Interesting article in the Spokesman Review on the job Libbey is doing... sounds like good news to me. LINK

One key quote:
"Look," he said, "we're not going to have 47 Dave Libbeys running up and down the floor. That isn't what this is about."
Cheers!

I am encouraged that he is making an emphasis on more refs. It seems like we've been seeing the same guys for a large percentage of the games. Of course, if you have the same refs all the time, at least you know how they work the game. Something else to watch this year.

Just noticed this tweet from Rev a couple weeks ago:
Dave Libbey, new coordinator of officials for WCC, visited with staff and team before scrimmage today. Love his passion and expertise.

Guess Coach doesn't have as many issues as some of us fans with Mr. Libbey. I'm sure he wouldn't say something just to be on DL's good side! Razz

Ha-ha, spoke with MesaPilot1's sister this past Saturday, so I figured that gave me the excuse to restore one of his threads......)

Baylor coach Kim Mulkey is one of my favorites because she’s good, and she’s fiery….

Well today that fiery side has gotten her a suspended from the next NCAA tournament game her team participates in, whether she’s at Baylor or some other institution.

In addition, the Division I Committee issued her a public reprimand for her comments regarding the officiating in Baylor’s loss to Louisville during last year’s NCAA tournament. Baylor was also in essence fined by the committee through the withholding of travel per diem that the NCAA gives to teams participating in championship events.

I bet we see an even bigger crackdown on men’s and women’s coaches yelling at the refs this coming season, but if you watched the game, you’ll know that Kim had plenty to be upset about.

Although, I gotta admit, she might have gone a little too far:
Specifically, Mulkey made disparaging comments about the officials during the postgame press conference following Baylor’s regional semifinal loss to Louisville on March 31 at the Oklahoma City Regional. The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee noted this is the second misconduct act by Mulkey during the past three championships and believes a more stringent penalty is appropriate to prevent these actions from continuing. She also received a public reprimand for comments to the media following the 2011 championship.

Haha.

Her face is the Billiken blue, but she doesn't quite have the wink down.

Oh, man.....can you imagine the talking-to she would have gotten from Buzz if she'd have jumped on the Pilots' floor with those high heals?  tongue

She seems . . unlikely to change.

From a Dallas Morning News profile:
“I was my father’s all-American boy,” Mulkey said. “He was a great dad. If I can be half the mother he was as a father when I was growing up, my kids will be good.”

Mulkey and her father haven’t spoken in 25 years.

The daughter felt betrayed when her father and mother divorced. Daughter invited father and his new wife to her 1987 wedding to Randy Robertson. There was a disagreement where the new wife would sit during the ceremony. The bride was determined that it wouldn’t be with the wedding party.

Father didn’t attend the wedding. A final plea, a registered letter written and sent by Robertson didn’t solicit a response. Kim Mulkey walked down the aisle alone.

Grandfather has never met his grandchildren.

“I had no control of the situation when he chose to break up our family,” Mulkey said. “But I could control my wedding day. It was my day. He should have respected my wishes. He should have been there for me.”
