Transcript Where Have All the Linesmen Gone? When the whistle blows for the opening kickoff at the Astrodome, there will actually be three teams on the field: the Cougars, their opponents and a crew of qualified, trained officials. The latter are there to insure that the rules are administered in a fair, unbiased way, and while the men in the striped shirts often raise the ire of the fans, none can deny that their presence is essential to the smooth operation of the game. Unfortunately the powers that be in women's intercollegiate tennis apparently take a different view. During a dual meet there can be as many as six matches in progress at once. Yet only one, or occasionally two, referees, are present to oversee the meet. While these referees are available to handle any problems that might arise, it is obvious that they cannot monitor six matches at once. As a result the players are left to make their own line calls. When such is the case, charges of cheating and bias inevitably arise sooner or later. This past season was no exception; in fact several Southwest Conference teams have the reputation — deserved or not — of cheaters. The solution? Simple. Either play only as many matches at one time as there are officials present or get more officials. While this isn't Wimbledon or the U.S. Open and tennis is considered a non-revenue producing sport, is it too much to ask for one impartial observer to oversee each match and call balls either in or out? The fans and the players deserve better than what they're getting under the present system. — Mark Vinson Sports 171
