Sign of the Apocalypse
Is it just me or does New Jersey legislator Sen. Robert Singer have very little to do?
Singer has introduced legislation asking the NCAA to look into the clock management situation in a Feb. 11 game in Knoxville won 59-58 by Tennessee amid a dispute over whether the clock expired.
According to the Associated Press, Singer's non-binding legislation calls upon the NCAA to investigate the game at the Thompson-Boling Arena in which the game clock seemed to pause for more than a second just before reaching zero, giving Tennessee time to make two foul shots to win.
Game and SEC officials reviewed tape of the incident and found nothing amiss. But that hasn't stopped Singer, whose legislature is reportedly battling severe budget woes.
"Some can say there's a lot more important things," Singer told the AP. "You're right. This is not the most pressing issue, but it's something to me that's an issue that we can take care of and we can send a resolution. Not a big deal to do, but it sends a message the state would like to take a look at it."
Hopefully, the NCAA will tell Singer take a hike.
