After Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase scored a touchdown this past weekend, he was looking for something up-top from the ref. But this ref knew better. He knew that it would undermine his authority to give the QB some skin. Being a ref is like being an Irish Catholic father in the ’50s. It’s important that you do what you can to show as little love as possible, so that everyone always respects you. Because that’s how your father did it, and that’s how his father did it, and that’s how people work, dammit.
