Right, like I said, the only reason they AREN'T playing quarters is because of the media timeouts. With quarters you have media timeouts at the first whistle under 5 (and first coaches' called timeout after halftime). That's seven media timeouts.

With halves, you have medias at the under 16, 12, 8, 4, plus the first coaches' called of the second. That's nine medias.

Media timeouts are when you sell ads. Ditching two medias in WBB isn't a problem. But that's where ESPN makes their money, so they want halves, not quarters.



"Resetting the fouls" is basically saying "We can't touch the clock because of TV Money, but we're going to set the rules to the quarter format."

Weird. I thought you said they were doing that "while playing quarters". I guess I misunderstood that sentence.
