Some how, Perry Costello got another CWS assignment.

Stunning. https://t.co/IPjVfIe4Je

If I was DVH I'd make it painfully clear to the CWS powers that be that Arkansas will not field a team with Costello anywhere near the field. Period.

This wreaks of fixing, and I'd bet the last two hairs on my head that with Arkansas having a chance to advance to the championship round this year, that snake will be calling the vital games of our stay ...

He'll be in our bracket for sure ...

I've been wondering he would show up on that list.
Disappointed to say the least.

Just pray he's not behind the plate in any of our games.

Hopefully they are divided by brackets and he's on the other side.

Do they post a list of who is assigned to which games?  Or just a wait and see thing?

That guy must have pictures of someone at the NCAA.  He is so awful and not just in games involving Arkansas.  Ole Miss regional had the joy of his disastrous umpiring.

Does anyone have any cousins in the Chicago area that might be willing to travel to Omaha and "talk" to Costello about his umpiring?

If he is behind the plate in any of our games, we might as well forfeit and save our pitching.

I've been convinced for some time now.  Ever since watch the handling of such debacles like the scam newton deal and watching mark Emmert jus pick and chose his way through punishments for such schools.

He even got fired from the Minor Leagues for being a horrible ump. Yet, the NCAA is so incompetent that they have him doing the CWS.

This. I know a lot of ppl here like to play the "poor ole Arkansas" card, but I don't buy that there was foul play here. I just think he sucks.

That’s a positive way to look at it. However if he’s as bad as everyone says I doubt he even could single our complaints out.

No way can he be allowed to ump any of our games. God, seeing this caused me to have Costello flashbacks. He costed us our best shot at a title in Omaha with that South Carolina game. That Arizona state regional still makes my blood boil.

Apparently you didn't watch him in the final game between Tennessee Tech & Ole Miss. Calling pitches a foot outside as strikes.

Yeah we have been screwed over by him a couple of times but he is known to be one of the worst college umps. It’s not just us, he has screwed over teams pretty much every time he is behind home plate. He habitually missed what should be easy calls.

Serious question:  Is there a way within proper channels and protocol for CVH to call attention to the past issues, this umpire's record and the clear conflict of interest which would exist if he called our game?  You would think they would want to head off the controversy and all the video of how bad their ump is by just keeping it from happening.

I don't believe so, which is really upsetting. I would find a way if I was Dvh, but he's too traditional to do so

The NCAA and conferences have created a system that you can't question them.  They never have to answer for their errors.  The coaches and players are fined or punished for saying anything.  You can't even mention them.  They have become untouchables even when it is so blatant wrong.  As hogs fans, you have seen some serious errors in officiating over the last 10-15 years.  Some were very costly to the programs growth and you have to wonder. 

Border line pitches are missed all the time.  Pitchers that would hit the opposite side batters knees when he isn't even standing on the paint.  There is some obvious favoritism when over the black isn't called yet the batter box is a strike for the opposing pitcher.  These aren't things that are just bad officials.  And you don't continue to place bad officials in places to cal big games.


Look at MLB, they have a law suit currerntly from the worst official in MLB.  He is suing because he never gets the big games, he never gets the post season or World Series.  They rate their guys and he has the worst rating and highest missed calls, not to mention the worst player rating.  Angel something is his name.

There is a lot of truth in the post. There is a certain level of accountability with MLB umpires. And, overall, their ball-strike calling is strong.

The chasm between that and college umpiring is just shocking. And it is very true that there appears to be no accountability at all with college umps. How any NCAA observer could watch what PC did at Tempe and then at Omaha in 2012 and keep putting him back in that situation is totally unexplainable. It is a travesty.

Saw this on a aTm forum from 2013 talking about Costello.  With this dude's reputation, its amazing that he still gets hired to call games. 

"Big East ump who HATES any SEC team. Just hope he's not behind the plate when y'all get to Oregon State! If so, you better have a closer who can throw it in a mouse's ear or they will be very happy in Beaver Land!

all umpires or referee's or officials, whatever term you want to use, is a good ole boy network. the longer you are in the more people you get to know, (especially the right people) and they will hire you for these plum assignments.
