Charlie Manuel frequently makes poor strategic decisions. The 11-million dollar scoreboard in left field would probably do a similar job. We guarantee a post analyzing Manuel's decisions for every Phillies game. Please click on our aliases below to email us.

NCAA clock operators take a page out of the NFL

The opening possession of the Xavier-Pitt game ended in a shot-clock violation against Pittsburgh. The buzzer sounded at 19:24 while the ball was in a Pitt player's possesion (one second ran off following the opening tip before anyone secured possession, which is why it wasn't 19:25). However, the clock operator decided to run off 2 more seconds for the hell of it. Either nobody can subtract 35 seconds from 60 in the NCAA, or nobody cares about how much time is on the clock until there's less than a minute left. Pretty lazy, considering how many games end at the buzzer.
