South Carolina State Review

South Carolina State Review
I know many people in the stands Saturday may have been more concerned about the Louisville-Florida State score and some may have been looking ahead to Clemson's next trip to Atlanta. However, there was a football game going on in our stadium, and this one could

FYI, that mercy shortening has been done several times:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/college/ct-college-football-shortening-games-spt-20160918-story.html

"The shortening of this game was hardly unprecedented. Here's a sampling of games over the last five years in which a lopsided score caused some changes in the timekeeping.

2012: Florida State 55, Savannah State 0: After a 56-minute weather delay in the second quarter with Florida State ahead 48-0, officials agreed to use a running clock. The game was called for good in the third quarter due to lightning.

2013: Louisville 72, Florida International 0: A running clock inadvertently was used for portions of the second half of the Cardinals' shutout. Gerald Austin, the coordinator of officials for Conference USA, said after the game that FIU coach Ron Turner had commented to officials that he wanted to run the ball in the second half because injuries had limited the number of players he had available. An official misinterpreted the comment. Austin said there were five times that the clock should have been stopped when it kept running. Neither coach requested a running clock.

2013: Miami 77, Savannah State 7: The fourth quarter of this game was shortened to 12 minutes. Miami also ran the play clock almost to expiration before each of its snaps in the final period. Miami already was leading 77-7 through the end of three quarters.

2013: North Carolina 80, Old Dominion 20: The fourth quarter of this game was shortened to 10 minutes. No points were scored during that final period."


It was also done like it was at Clemson during the 1916 GT vs Cumberland game, known as the most lopsided victory in history. Last 2 quarters were shortened to 12 minute quarters, GT still won 222-0.

Furthermore, I've seen us use a running clock before
