Now we just need to get rid of Burr and Valentine. And the entire contingent of B1G football refs. And Jim Delany.
Actually, you know what? This conference can just go to hell.

Not soon enough.
That's a pretty light load compared to the likes of Karl Hess and Valentine. It looks like Burr's working a light schedule so far as well.
That can be explained by the fact that Hightower is usually given bigger games, where Izzo is likely to have a lower record compared to his overall record anyway.
I'd place Hightower ahead of several refs, including but not limited to Burr, Valentine, and that fucker with the highlights in his hair.
I honestly think Eddy has been doing ok reffing our games the last 2-3 years. Historically he has been awful but these last couple years he really seems to have improved, He still calls alot of dumb fouls and seems to talk to the players and coaches way more than most refs and I'v even seen him a few time take a minute to go explain a call to the announcers. He can be annoying as hell but I think he calls he games both evenly as of late.
Speak of the devil; he's reffing the Northwestern v Butler game now.
We are the SPARTANS and They are NOT!!! [spartan 2]
Seems like he's been mailing it in for the last 10 years at least except for the self-agrandising "it's all about me" moments, so I already consider him retired. Plus he can't possibly justify being paid cash money for how he referees, so that makes refereeing a hobby for him and again, something a retired person would do.
No. Although he improved in the last few years he still ranks as the worst ref I have seen. He had to impead a flow and be the main attraction. That might be tolerable if it is the same for both teams but often it was not. The only two emails of complaint I ever wrote was to the Big 10 office after his terrible job of numerous phantom fouls. The outcome MSU at scUM and at Penn St years ago were decided by Eddie and cast of clowns. Anyone remember those games?
Showtime didn't do this game but yes I remember it. Remember watching that game and just getting more and more sick as the game went on.

The first time MSU basketball aired in France the French surrendered to Tom Izzo just to be safe.
I'm shocked to see we were only called for 24 personal fouls... they still shot 34 free throws... which is like 17 shooting fouls, but then again, they also missed a number of front ends on the 1 and 1's...
So, it makes me wonder just how many fouls were called that didn't result in a trip to the line.

And of course Eddie had his obligatory needless stoppage of play and view the monitor to confirm the shot clock correctly reset on a jumper by Payne where even a blind guy could see the ball hit the rim. He's a just a joke and a travesty. Wisconsin/Scum played an OT game yesterday with 21 total fouls and only 12 FT attempts.
