Greg Marsden on NCAA judging

Read his comments on Facebook.

Yes NCAA scoring is silly. Yes those high scores help with the popularity of the sport.

Long, long ago I was advised to drop the first digit when looking at College scores.

9.975 = 9.75
9.900 = 9.00
9.850 = 8.50

That gives you some range between routines.

Most important is that judges get the ranking right. They most often do.

That said, I think judges should be far more accountable. Their names should be included on results. Fans should be able to call them out they way they do baseball umpires and soccer referees.
