Roar: If I can consider the research you and Old Lion have done to now be completed as you've made it known to us all, the Ivy League referees were correct 99.96% of the time during the 2021 football
season. You cited two legitimate officiating errors that can be substantiated by any one of us: the
down and distance play in New Haven; and the truly game altering occurrence during the overtime portion of the Harvard at Princeton game.

The timing issue during the Brown at Columbia game evolved out of a confluence of factors related to equipment malfunction and the weather- so blame the manufacturer and/or God for that one. And you surely know that coaches yell at officials as a means of staying off the unemployment line. Coach Perry could have considered spending as much time time calling out his porous defense - he may now have a bit more to show for a season in which the very best Ivy League player was wearing a Brown uniform for ten games.

99.96%. Much higher than the lifetime success rate of Buddy Teevens, or that of the illustrious Italian American league coaches many of us have been paying homage to. In fact, it can be objectively stated, that the referees have had more to do than anyone else affiliated with the Ivy League -players, coaches, league administrators, support personnel, et al- to elevate the league's professionalism and standing within the NCAA universe.

"Coaches yell at officials as a means of staying off the unemployment line."

+1.

That is quality prose.

"Coach Perry could have considered spending as much time calling out his porous defense. He may now have a bit more to show for a season in which the very best Ivy League player was wearing a Brown uniform. . . ."

A cheap shot, but a quality one.
