Final Four 2012: Officials For NCAA Tournament Semifinals Announced

Though the individual game assignments have not been announced, the NCAA has released the names of the officials who will be working this weekend's Final Four games in New Orleans.

They are:

- Pat Adams

- Roger Ayers

- Joe DeRosa

- Tom Eades

- Verne Harris

- Les Jones

- Jamie Luckie

- Doug Shows

- Mike Stuart

- Mark Whitehead

I suppose the bigger story here might be the names that aren't on the list. Familiar faces like Jim Burr, Tim Higgins, Karl Hess and Teddy Valentine will all be watching the festivities from home this year.

Since the common thought is that the more well-known an official is, the worse he is at his job, this list is probably going to go over just fine with fans of the four teams remaining.
