More penalties from Pac-10

The Pac-10 has just announced more penalties for the replay and game officials in Saturday’s game.
Here’s the official release:
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.—-The Pacific-10 Conference has suspended for one game the instant replay officials involved in last week’s Washington at Oregon State football game for failure to stop play for review of a critical play late in the game, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today. In addition, the instant replay officials as well as the on-field officiating crew will not be considered to receive assignments for a post-season bowl game.
“The Conference has conducted a thorough review of the Washington-Oregon State game, including viewing all of the available video and conducting conversations with replay and officiating personnel involved in the game,” Hansen said.
“We concluded the instant replay officials did not perform properly on the fumble play late in the game. It is clear the game officials should have been notified to stop the game and the play should have been reviewed prior to the ball being snapped for the next play.
“We believe the suspensions and removal from consideration for post-season bowl assignments are appropriate penalties.
“In addition, I apologize for what I deem an inappropriate remark by Pac-10 Director of Instant Replay Verle Sorgen. He assures me he meant no disrespect to Oregon State or its team, coaches and fans. The failure to stop the game definitely was egregious.”
“I reiterate that this was not a game representative of the best of Pac-10 football and all involved will work hard to avoid similar occurrences as we move forward,” Hansen concluded.
