The Mercy Rule - One Week In

Question

Hearing a number of reports of how the Mercy Rule May have been incorrectly administered as far as timing goes. We did use the rule in the game I saw Friday night. The crew did a great job with it ... except for one thing. The R did not include mercy rule timing procedures in his pregame discussion with the clock operator. Every school in the state got a sheet of timing instructions from the IHSAA to provide to the clock operators. But you can’t  depend on that. Because, judging from my game experience, the clock operator either never saw it, or didn’t understand it.

That’s kinda like doing a great job setting up your Canadian fishing trip except that you forgot to tell your wife about it.
