Should a flag be thrown on the Big 12 officials?

I thought that perhaps now would be a decent time to display the penalty stats for all Big 12 games to this point in the season, along with some interesting facts listed below that I found during my research.

I don't want to draw any conclusions, but I encourage you to draw them. As Bo Pelini is prone to say, "Have at it."
