This announcement may or may not reflect all that was changed. Often, the initial announcement covers just some major things.

And this announcement typically covers the announced rules changes. Sometimes there are unannounced changes in both the rules book and casebook that are more significant than the announced changes. Only a line-by-line comparison of the new vs. the old ferrets those unannounced changes out.

And we all know who's the official Official Forum curator of these line by line changes.



Hey Freddy. Be careful, it looks like you're putting on the COVID 15.

I certainly hope so. Through IAABO, and the Connecticut interscholastic sports governing body, I suggested a minor rule change for this year. I heard it through the grapevine that my suggested change made it's way all the way up the ladder to the NFHS Basketball Rules Committee as an agenda item with a favorable outlook.

We have the “Mikan Rule”, the “Alcindor Rule”, and the "Trent Tucker Rule".

I really wanted the "BillyMac Rule".

Announced Rules Changes

Basketball Rules Changes - 2020-21
By NFHS on May 12, 2020
(https://www.nfhs.org/sports-resource...anges-2020-21/)

2-12-5: The intent of the rule change is to avoid gamesmanship and ensure the time for replacement remains within the rules. This rule change makes 2-12-5 consistent with 2-12-4 “second horn” requirement.
Rationale: The addition of a warning signal at the end of the replacement period admonishes the coach and team to prepare for resumption of the game.

5-4-1, 2: When a coach has been removed, this rule clarifies that if no other coach or school personnel are available, then the game is forfeited unless state association rules determine otherwise.
Rationale: Rewritten to clarify the forfeiture process and adds language and a new article to give directions when there is no coach or other school personnel, on the bench.

10-6-Penalty: To clarify that officials are not required to issue a warning prior to issuing a technical foul. However, they may issue a warning when the offense is judged not to be major.
Rationale: To clarify the official does not have to give a warning to the coach. The warning is one of the tools used to help improve behavior before a technical foul has to be given.

Thanks, but according to the update Freddy posted today, I'm doubtful that my change got accepted.

Too bad.

I coulda' had class. I coulda' been a contender. I could've been somebody. Instead of a bum, which is what I am.

What exactly did you expect to see? Can't legislate away germs and bacteria in athletic competition.

There are policies and guidelines about blood, blood on uniforms, players who appear concussed. It is not so farfetched for NFHS to promulgate policies about players who are coughing, say, or appear feverish. Perhaps not in the real world, but it is, not so farfetched for NFHS, in its infinite wisdom, to think it can legislate.

I would not be surprised if states come up with some policy about things that would be appropriate for what takes place considering the virus. This was still early in the process when they met. And I do not see them coming up with a policy when each state and jurisdiction has their own concerns and likely issues with the virus. I do not know what policy is going to prevent the spread if we do not even know if how to get a handle on this situation as a whole.

Peace

Agree. If policies are needed, the states will take care of it.

I just recalled that several years ago, during a really nasty flu season, I had a partner who, after coaches and captains hand-shaking, took a small bottle of hand sanitizer out of his warm-up jacket pocket and cleaned his hands.

I guess he was years ahead of his time.
