Football without officials sure would step up the action. Think of it: No touchdowns called back because of penalties. No quick whistles. And no referees huddled like old maids at a quilting bee, figuring out how to enforce a penalty. But telling officials to stay home would be like barring highway patrolmen from freeways.

The one-year probationary penalty assessed Ocean View High School's basketball program last August has been lifted by the CIF Southern Section's Executive Committee.

The change came as a surprise to many.
