Q&A with retiring Big Ten referee Dan Capron

My father has done the chains for WIU home football games for close to 30 years. The chains are, of course, on the visiting team’s sideline, so my dad has had an up close view of the opposing team all that time.

Bo Pelini was coach at Youngstown St, one of Western’s conference rivals, from 2015 to this year. According to my dad, everything Capron says about Pelini is true.

Thoroughly enjoyable Q&A with retiring Big Ten referee Dan Capron (an Illinois alum, by the way) by Teddy Greenstein, including his thoughts on current and former Illini football coaches.

$50K for being a Big Ten ref? When this was discussed earlier in another thread, I don't remember it being that high.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
That was a good read. Thanks for sharing it.
