In this Friday, March 11, 2011 photo, an official prepares for play as his automatic timing system remote is seen clipped to his belt during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game at the Southeastern Conference tournament, in Atlanta.  It's an odd situation that caught plenty of prominent coaches off guard when told this week that game clocks in the tournament are not linked to a well-known device known as Precision Time Systems, which was invented nearly two decades ago by former NBA and college referee Michael Costabile.
