Funny story

We had two officials, no, I was not one of them , who at the end of a tie game left the floor and had to be brought back by game administrator. Basically, they weren't paying attention to score and when the horn went to end the game, they didn't realize the game was tied! Thought it a humorous way to start the second half of the season! 2-person crew, varsity game. No excuse for it to happen, but humbling for the officials involved to say the least.

Devon is occupied in the "Colorado/Arizona" last second shot forum. Save yourself the trouble and send the same letter to John Adams... since he will send the same response back.

Thank you for being a fan of college basketball!

Please Don't Write A Letter ...

Two nights ago. Girls varsity. I'm the lead official. I have shot in my corner, from behind the three point line, no defender any where near shooter. I put out my three point try signal, and since there isn't any action to observe near the shooter, I, like any good lead official, look, with my eyes down, under the basket, watching for rebounding fouls, and see, out of the corner of my eye, with my peripheral vision, the ball come straight down from near the center of the basket, like a lead balloon, and hit the floor. So I make the touchdown signal for the successful three point goal, only to see a player grab the rebound off the floor, make an outlet pass, and have all ten players run down to the other end of the court.

Air ball.

Man. I hope that DevonMoore doesn't read this post. And if he does, I do not post under my real name (Dr. Frank-N-Furter), so I can't get into too much trouble.

They can't play overtime. They left the visual confines, so it HAS to be recorded as a tie. Not even the SCOTUS can overturn it!! It's true, it's true...

I had a partner (2 man crew) signal a good 3 on an airball from the trail once. After protests and while still correctable, I went to the table and to him to make sure. Table said NG, partners told table they were homers. As I was lead with several players vying for position, I only saw a brush of the net, so I had no definite knowledge.

I went into GIGDGO mode.

Color Me Foolish ...

I once ran off the court after the second period buzzer sounded in a Catholic middle school game. I ran all the way into the concession area, where we normally spend our time during halftimes, and during the time between games of a doubleheader. My partner ran in after me to inform me that it was only the end of the first period. Please, no letters.

Man, even as a military man I had to look that one up! Can't remember seeing it used before. Thanks!
