I was wondering what Self was so pissed about after half time against Texas Tech. I saw on TV that he was going off on the officials. This appears to be the answer.

Quote:
Weird rule?: Self was quite upset at the start of the second half when the officials awarded Tech the ball to begin play. Most assumed KU would get first possession, considering KU won the opening tap and there was just one tie-up the first half, Tech gaining possession.
However, with 8:11 left in the half, a foul was committed after Tech received a tied-up ball, causing the ball to go to KU. Since no time ran off the clock, the arrow didnít change, so Tech had the arrow to begin the second half.
ďIíve never heard of the rule. Iím sure the officials are right,Ē Self said. ďThis isnít me being upset with them ... when the foul occurred we got the ball. They said it would be double jeopardy for them to lose the possession arrow and the foul cost them possession which is total crap because it cost us a possession. The bottom line is they went back to the old possession arrow since the foul occurred when the ball wasnít live, which Iíve never heard of that rule at all. To me it makes zero sense, but that is the rule.
ďIím sure theyíre right. They said theyíve had it happen other times, but thatís one (rule) that may need to be visited. That penalizes a defense,Ē Self added.
