Note that 3-7-1 says nothing about the RFP; all it says is "between downs."

If the coach comes onto the field for the timeout, the wing for that sideline should be watching the huddle. As soon as...

I've had it about the same number of times, with the same result. In each case, the runner either pulled the defender down by the mask, or twisted his hand at the wrist to turn the defender aside.

When you say "did not fair catch"... did he signal for a fair catch and then elect not to make one, or was there no signal?

If there was a signal, I've got an easy flag for unnecessary roughness....

Under Fed rules, start the clock on the ready. We have not awarded a new series after a legal kick, and there was no fair catch made. See casebook 3.4.2, especially situation D.

The snap is, by definition, a backwards pass or handoff - and it's not a handoff in this case. The offense is not allowed to bat a backward pass forward; thus, illegal batting.

In C, I'm sure they mean "the result of the play is a touchback instead of a successful field goal by virtue of the illegal kick." This is not a trick question - C is the answer you want.

Hopefully that will also be the last for you, as allowing the TD to stand is a MAJOR botch. All free kicks are dead as soon as they are caught/recovered by K. Also, I hope it was more than 52 yards...
