Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Violet Palmer will join the PAC-10 as coordinator of women's basketball officials.

A little info about officials and coordinators:
1) A coordinator hires, schedules and supervises/evaluates officials
2) Officials are independent contractors - that means the get a fee/per deim/travel but pay their own taxes and health insurance.
3) You'd be amazed at the budgets conferences don't give coordinators - which impacts their ability to hire and train and supervise officials.
