Yep. Didn't stop the term "midcourt line," which they explicitly called out in last year's POEs, from making it past their editors, as Billy pointed out below.

I went all the way back to 2017-18, and you're right. Thought maybe it was an oversight last year when they revised the delays. I never realized that the defender crossing the throw-in plane is not...

My main issue is with college officials taking digs at the high school game/officials in the dressing room.

Delay Warnings

Why do some officials report a number to the table for a warning for delay? The warning is for the entire team, not the player who was responsible for the team receiving it. I've always just said...

I've unfortunately worked with many a high school official who doesn't care about anything other than what the books say.

On the flip side, I can't stand officials with a too-good "I'm not a rules...
