College basketball "official" Karl Hess leaves no room for debate ...

... after this embarrassing display, that it's time for him to hang up his whistle and scour the earth for something he's actually competent at doing, if such a vocation exists.

Hess has been just one of the many scourges of college basketball masquerading as an official for several years, and Saturday, with him ejecting from the arena former NC State stars Tom Gugliotta and Chris Corchiani (who were sitting in the stands) during the Wolfpack's game against Florida State, Hess removes all doubt that he's unfit to officiate college basketball (or, any level of competitive basketball for that matter).

Hess has been so proficient, and has such great experience blowing calls, perhaps he can ... well, never mind.
