The solution is having more evaluation done and more data given to the refs about their performance. I truly believe that most refs go into every game with the goal of being fair and getting calls right. It is my understanding that in the professional ranks, in each sport, refs gets communication after a game to tell them what they got right and what they got wrong. This helps them adjust their calls and fine tune themselves toward getting more calls right. I would try to do the same for these college refs. Perhaps an entrepenuer out there can come up with a company that, for a reasonable charge, gives refs feedback after each game. This could be built into the cost of the game just like the refs pay. Also, give teams the opportunity to send in a complaint about a refs performance. If a team complains about a refs performance at particular game, and in depth look is taken. The outcome is not the ref getting fired or fined, but just and independent evaluation that tells the guy "you did just fine, the team is wrong," or "you were really bad that game and here is why." The more information these refs have, the better they will be. Then, if you have a ref that is consistently getting graded poorly by the independent evaluators, that ref can be identified and weeded out, although I would expect this to be the rare exception and definitely not the rule.
