Kickoff from the 5 yard line?

Nebraska class A championship.

Team A, previously undefeated trails big. A scores a touchdown and commits a UNS. Enforcement is chosen for the kickoff. After the try another UNS by A, with succeeding spot enforcement. Kicking from K's 10 yard line, OFK (ENC) by K on the ensuing kickoff. Ball is then kicked off from K's 5.

Am I correct that we should be at the 7.5? Or do we always kick from a big line? I can't find a rule stating as such, but I'm sitting at home so I assume this crew knows their rules better than me.

We kick off from where we're supposed to kick off from ... no "big line" anything, whatever that is.

But half the distance from the 10 is the 5. How are you getting 7.5?

Because the 2nd USC should have moved the ball to the 12.5 and not the 10.

Start from the 40--15 yd penalty moves it to the 25.

25 yd line--15 yd penalty, which is now half the distance, moves it to the 12.5

12.5 yd line--5 yd penalty, moves it to the 7.5

I'm still trying to figure out the choices team R has after a free kick to out-of-bounds when there's not enough distance from the previous spot to the goal line to take the previous-spot+25-yards option. The only thing I've gotten here is that they just can't take that choice, no specific alternative for that case.

That option is removed.


6.1.9 SITUATION H:

Team K, after accepting the penalties for multiple R fouls, is now free kicking from R's 20-yard line. In attempting to onside kick, the ball goes out bounds untouched in the field of play.

RULING: R may take the ball at the inbounds spot, or accept the 5-yard penalty and have K re-kick from R's 25-yard line.

Confused.

If you have the answer... why are you still trying to figure it out?

I didn't know it'd been answered in a case book.

Do you really need a case play to tell you that? (Not trying to sound snotty -- so apologize if that comes across that way.)

Now, if someone were to argue that the distance puts the ball in Team B's end zone and that results in a touchback, THEN I agree. But a potential enforcement spot that makes the next snap not possible (without further comment) to me, is unavailable.

Are there any exceptions to this idea in either Fed or NCAA? I can't think of any in the latter.

It does make me think of the case where kicking from R's 10 to the GL makes an onside kick recovery effectively impossible....

But then again, I've never seen a kickoff from anywhere near R's GL. I think the farthest I've ever seen is from R's 45.

What confuses the matter is your writing "enforcement spot". If it were a penalty, there'd be a half-the-distance enforcement. But it was pointed out to me that it's not a penalty, just a choice that the non-offending team has. It's like a spot of first touching, which also is not referenced as a penalty.

And if K wants to preserve that possibility, they can decline the distance that'd make it impossible.

It has, but that's not what I was referring to ... you said, "The only thing I've gotten here is that they just can't take that choice"

... which is the answer to your question.

I said, "POTENTIAL enforcement spot." And by that I meant a choice that became unavailable because it was impossible. Sort of like a loss of down penalty on a foul by Team B. However, that exception is clarified.

If that's not what you're stating, then I'm not sure of your point. I reread the issue and my response and it is relevant.
