FOX's Joel Klatt has solution for college football's officiating problem
There are many things wrong with college football and how it is run today.
Most of these problems stem from each conference doing their own thing instead of having one body with a commissioner like the NFL.
That is no different for the referees and officials; there are other crews for various conferences, which is fine until you run into non-conference games. You get officials from one conference calling the shots rather than a neutral crew.

FOX analyst Joel Klatt believes he has seen some egregious officiating the past two weeks, whether it came with Oregon and Pac-12 officials against Ohio State or last nights’ game with SEC officials making Penn State punt on 3rd down against Auburn.
There were a few poor calls last week from the Pac 12 officials helping Oregon against Ohio State…This week an SEC crew forced Penn State to punt on 3rd down against Auburn.
Probably time to just have CFB officials and stop this nonsense of each conference having their own

Klatt has a solution to fix the problem, have college football officials stop having officials from 10 different conferences because inevitably, officials from each conference call the game differently.
College football is changing with the new NIL rules, another round of expansion and potentially playoff expansion; this new proposal should be a welcome one to college football fans across the country.
