    Game I had last night had all the potential for a goofy score. Team A scored on 3rd play from scrimmage, Team B scored on 1st play from scrimmage, Team A ran the kickoff back. 3 TD in first 1:30

    Both teams settled down, ended 50-38.

    The team I cover has won its first four games 38-17, 38-7, 38-7 and 38-12.

    The team had five passing TDs in the first game, five rushing TDs in the second, four rushing and one passing in the third and one rushing and four passing in the fourth.
     
  6. Local team I covered last night won 63-6. Ran just 14 total plays, but for 522 yards. Had only two plays go for LESS than 21 yards.

    Also didn't run a single offensive play in the third quarter. Losing team got the kickoff to start the second half and had a 17-play drive lasting almost 13 minutes.

    After losing team scored, local team ran just two plays ... 21-yard run and 43-yard TD run.

    Kentucky plays 12-minute quarters and has running clock once a team has a 36-point lead. Running clock can begin in first quarter. Also point of no return, so even if losing team pulls off improbably comeback (haven't seen it yet), clock still runs.

    Hearing state association will drop running clock (football, basketball) in favor of a "flat 50." No running clock ever, but once lead reaches 50 in basketball or football, game is over.

    With soccer having 10-goal rule and baseball/softball having mercy rules for decades, could be time for football and basketball to follow suit.

    Frankly, I'd rather have the running clock. Fifty-point games are rare. Thirty-five point leads at halftime, when it's obvious there's no chance in hell of a comeback, are far more common.
    Game I covered Friday was 35-0 at halftime and wound up 56-14. I think the biggest lead was 42 points, but they ran the clock the entire second half and I walked out of the stadium at 9 p.m.
    It was kind of funny, too, when I asked the side judge about the running clock right before halftime. He said, "Well, the coaches have to agree to it, but we can suggest it. And we are going to suggest it."

    Covered a game once in Florida, which had a 35-point running clock rule -- optional in the third, mandatory in the fourth. 28-0 after one, home team adds another TD in the second quarter ... but has the PAT blocked. And then puts in the JV. 34-6 final.
