ACC Tournament Game 1 refs pay tribute to Karl Hess

I am not making this up.  According to alert reporter J.P. Giglio, the three officials working the Maryland-Wake game have “KH” on their left shoes.  Full story.

Hess’ absence is not a form of punishment for the incident at the N.C. State-Florida State game on Feb. 18, Clougherty said, but the three officials who worked the first game on Thursday —Jamie Luckie, Mike Eades and Bernard Clinton— each wore a small piece of white tape on their left sneaker with the initials “KH.”

Clougherty had no comment about the apparent tribute to Hess.

    I would LOVE to see the text that Debbie Yow sent to John C. & John S. This is literally the most biased and defiant act by a professional team that is SUPPOSED to be UNBIASED. What a CROCK.

    S-E-C. The only solution, other than vaseline.

    If I were Yow or Gottfried I would not allow the team to take the floor until the refs (calling the game) remove the tape from their shoes.

    I would make a f___ing spectacle of it and let them and the whole wide world know that Wolfpack Nation will not tolerate this kind of blatant disrespect from any officiating crew nor the ACC leadership.

    GO PACK!

    I’m stunned by how juvenile this is. If they think they can get away with it, we’ll get it good today from the zebras. If we do, I trust MG and DY to not remain still about it.

    And is there some reason why Hess isn’t working any other conference tournament? Did they also get sick of his schtick (careful when you say that aloud)?

    Will be interesting to see if the next crew does the same…

    Apparently the refs for our game do not have anything on their shoes.

    Just when you thought this story couldn’t get any crazier, it does. Unbelievable.

    ^Was this Eades & company ‘line in the sand’ in the first game?

    Unreal, all the way around.

    They don’t have the tape on their shoes, but I bet they are well aware of NC State’s “tendency” to commit phantom fouls and 1-step walks.

    ^ AGREED!! DY/MG have apparently already raised hell about it!

    Clougherty needs to be shitcanned. Not an emotional response on my part – it’s what would happen to any manager in a professional organization. Either he has no leadership ability re: the behavior of the officials, or he condones it. Either way, he should be out.

    Someone posted Hess was officiating the Big East Tourney.

    I guess the refs don’t like to be called out and their biases exposed. Swofford really can’t tolerate this because if it gets any bigger, it promises to blow up into a natonal story and then it will be out of his control.

    I guess refs really are like cops. They stand by their own, no matter what.

    ^ Then I hope they are standing by their own in the unemployment line. These three should be canned by the league. If not, Clougherty and Swofford should be shown the door.

    Anything short of suspension for these refs is completely unacceptable. If I were in charge of the team, they would not take the court with any of these officials working.

    Tacky behavior by the refs. Juvenile as well.

    Fitting tribute – although it should be on the bottom of the shoe given what it represents
