So, was having a discussion with a fellow umpire about this, and I tried finding it in the college rule book. Couldnt find it. Is it in there? OBR? Does it say "clearly" in the book? Or was Jim just speaking in general terms?.
My take: He was trying to debunk the myth that "the tie goes to the runner."
