Karl Hess is Off My Christmas Card List

First, take a quick look at this article  from NCAA Basketball Fanhouse on points of emphasis in the ACC this season.

To sum it up, the article specifically focuses on the zero-tolerance policy for taunting, and in a supreme twist of irony, features comments from none other than Grievez Vasquez, who the author hilariously describes as the player "informally picked as the player most constrained by the new [taunting] rule."

Later in that same article, the author discusses the implementation of the blocking-charging area (akin to the NBA halo).

So, did you skim the article above?  Or even open it and close it quickly?  Congrats, I suspect you know more about what the ACC officials are supposed to be focusing on than Karl Hess and his crew. Hess has reputation for interjecting himself into games, so much so that ESPN announcers have taken specific on-air exception with his officiating style. Here is a video, and no, I didn't make up the title.

 

 

McDonagh, Raftery, and Bilas agree Karl Hess sucks (via coniel)


To be sure, Hess didn't lose the game for Florida State.  However,  he certainly flexed his "muscles" and flashed his ego, yet again, at the most critical and inappropriate of times.  While perhaps creating temporary satisfaction for some of the student section, the projectiles hurled at Hess & company at the end of the game will be something he will carry with him and hold against FSU every time he comes back to Tallahassee.
