Re: The Clock
I'm sorry but halftime shows are pointless. I have never sat through one, and don't ever intend too. Football games are for football.
On topic, shortening halftime would be dumb anyways. You need a bit of a break from playing, and there is a lot of strategy going on from the coaches during halftime. But if the reason they decided no to shorten halftime was b/c of the bands, then I say shame on the NCAA.
