Annual Precision Timing thread

On this date, every year I would ask if the NCAA tournament would use 'precision timing'. Apparently they are.

So now I ask, how many instances will we see the scorers table fail to stop the clock on a made field goal in the final minute of regulation? It seems to happen every other NCAA tournament game followed by a review at the monitor.

By the way, if there is a made field goal with 1:03 left in regulation and the ball is not inbounded at the 1:00 minute mark, does the clock stop? I know it does in the NBA (at the two minute mark), but I have seen instances in the NCAA where it does and sometimes it doesn't.

The clock only stops if the field goal clears the net with 59.9 seconds or less remaining in the second half or OT.

Your post just reminded me that this is my favorite time of the year to watch hoops and my least favorite time on the forum.

Wait, why?? Personally I love the influx of fans/trolls and the million block/charge plays that get posted.

It shouldn't be that difficult to rig a sensor in the rim to determine when the ball passes through it (pop-a-shot does it!). It also shouldn't be that difficult for that sensor to only go on when the clock reads 59.9 or less. PTS 2.0?

Clock stops when it passes through the net, not the rim. Subtle difference that couldn't be accounted for with a sensor on the rim.

There's a certain poster who is fond of squirrels...that has been lacking in his duties.

Squirrel season is closed here, though I am licensed to trap animals which are causing damage for a fee.

What kinds of animals cause damage for a fee?

The company that makes these things might have the worst website I've ever seen: http://precisiontime.com

I haven't been watching that closely, but have noticed some of the officials chopping the clock like normal and not using the timing pack to start the clock. Perhaps not all the officials are familiar with their use?

It doesn't appear they are using Precision Timing in Pittsburgh - no packs & they're chopping the clock. Every other site I've seen is using it.
