Scab Ref Rips Greg SchianoOctober 4th, 2012
A middle school geography teacher in Idaho is no fan of the New Schiano Order.
Zebra Jim Core wasn’t moving up the college football officiating ranks, so he applied to be a replacement referee in the NFL.
In this Showtime interview below, Core is grilled by James Brown and Chris Collinsworth about his experiences. Core is asked who the toughest coach was he had to work with. His answer? “Coach Schiano.”
“He’s college,’’ Core said. “I mean the rest of them acted at a different level. You could just tell working with them, they were at a different level than what I felt like he was.’’
Joe’s not sure what to make of this. Who cares if Schiano wasn’t liked by this scab referee? Is it a shock that an Idaho guy didn’t like a Jersey guy’s delivery? And it’s no surprise that Schiano gave the impression of a college style. Schiano still refers to his actions at Rutgers as “we” on first reference.
Core’s comments come in the six-minute mark in the video.
