Assuming Replay Officials in the Big Ten are members of the home teams student body, do they get paid or just free admissions to the games. Understand how the on field officials can get it wrong (goal line fumble in the Penn State game), but it appears the replay official was the only one that thought it was a fumble when looking at the replay. Why have replay? The officials and their background should be announced during the broadcast, no question of bias!
