You failed to use "scandalicous" or "scandtabular".

No pudding for you.

There were 6.6 seconds left in the game with Miami (OH) down by 2 to Akron with Miami shooting a free throw. He missed and the clock didn't start until about 2 seconds after it should have. Miami got the rebound and went down the court and shot a 3 to win the game it appeared. Fans stormed the court. After thinking about it for a bit the refs then went to the monitor and realized they started the clock too late. Was the shot really good or did the fact that they started the clock too late give miami too much time to get the three shot off?

Somehow, they decide after several minutes that the clock wasn't right and that after miami's 3 shot they're going to give Akron .6 seconds . If anything they should have waved off the Miami shot because had the clock been operated correctly they wouldn't have even got the shot off. I don't know, no matter how you sorted it out neither team would have been happy with the results. What do you do when a clock operator is the reason a team wins or loses a game?

It wasn't much of a scandal. The shot by Miami was up in plenty of time anyway.

It is about a final shot? That equals a scandal? :shake:

The KU game had a clock issue as well. But the game didn't hinge on it.

The clock didn't start immediately after the missed foul shot. It might've taken an extra half second off the clock, but the guy for Miami got the shot up with 1.2 left anyway.

So did it take the refs 10 minutes to clear everything up?

Take it up the ass like Mizzou versus UCLA in 1995?

Hell, Mizzou is the king of taking it up the ass. See Colorado and Nebraska football. Nebraska was more about pure luck but Colorado was crap.

I don't remember a clock issue in that game. Tyus Edney just flat kicked your ass.

You're right. The clock started immediately and he ran the full court and scored in 4.8 seconds.

He absolutely did.

The clock issue that was a real homer job happened in Kemper Arena in a regional semifinal game 21 years ago.

Anybody else remember?

What is really funny is that Directv is running that play in their ad to this day. I doubt they would use it if it was done illegally. That day all of college basketball learned just what little time it takes to go 94 feet if unobstructed. It is just icing on the cake that Mizzou was the patsy.

That's what I thought. They wouldn't have to even touch him. Just get in the way and make him detour. But I like it better this way. :LOL:

Yup. And then for some odd reason they put .6 on the clock and let Akron get the last attempt.

.6 is just enough to touch and launch it. I've never seen it work.

See, thats what I didn't understand. If the clock started late off the rebound which it did, and the shot went through the hoop with the clock expiring, why did Akron get .6 seconds?

It has worked before. The point here is that there was no lreason to put time on the clock. Because the clock started late, time would've been taken off if anything.
