The game Monday night between the Kansas Jayhawks and Iowa State had people buzzing, and now the Big 12 admits errors were made in officiating during the overtime victory. ESPN shared the details on Feb. 27 about the calls that the conference now acknowledges were not done properly.
A statement was released Tuesday noting that the Big 12 admits errors were made during the controversial victory. While specific plays or officials were not noted, many viewers look to the collision between Elijah Johnson and Georges Niang that went without a block or charge call that viewers thought would have been appropriate. The league's coordinator, Curtis Shaw, says that they will be taking appropriate action in this situation.
Social media sites lit up over the incident Monday night, and now many will likely be glad to hear that the Big 12 admits errors in the officiating have been acknowledged. While acknowledging the problems doesn't fix how the game ended, many hope that the review and “appropriate actions” will at least lead to holding the involved officials accountable for the problematic calls.
