Maybe he and the scheduler agreed it was best that he didn't work their games.

He will never REF a KY game ever again. His business couldn’t handle another BBN wave.

John Higgins could care less either way, officials take the schedule they are given and officiate. He doesn’t have any problems officiating a game every single night. And does a very good job.

Has he been in time out long enough? Will he ever get the honor of calling another UK game?

You are serious about the "honor" part right? That guy has a pretty strong officiating resume. The best officials treat every game as their "big" game.

When you get blackballed from UK, that makes a guy like Higgins feel pretty low!

He couldn’t care less.

I talked to many college officials and they all say it cuts deep when you get scratched from any school.

Then they shouldn't be officials. 

Not to mention, a school can't control what officials are assigned to their games.

If he is comfortable being assigned a UK game, then I think they should give him some games on the road (I wouldn't ask him to do it at Rupp for a while).  Send the message that a fanbase is not going to be allowed to manipulate the system to keep an official from working their games.

 

Kentucky fans HATE Doug Shows - hasn't kept him from officiating their games.

It is a unwritten rule that if you  make mad a whole state or have a bad issue your assigner will not send you there, Higgins is not a SEC official so the only games he would get would be games like the Champions classic and UK would have to agree on the refs. He will probably never call a UK game as long as Cal is here!

You're a college official?

You honestly believe that? The term is usually "scratched".
