What is the rule NCAA?

Once the technical is assessed, can the player then enter the game?

Depends on my partner

I'f I'm with my regular partner, we have a system. Hold the hand up, eye contact means HELP. If he knows, he makes the call. If he doesn't, he shrugs and I make the AP call. Working with someone...

Old NOOB looking for advice

I've been reffing for some 20+ years, but since I've been connected to a private middle school system, I've been doing almost exclusively 5th-8th grade games, to the tune of 60 games a year. I've...

This makes no sense to me. If the refs leave, the coach is fine to be there. Resolve the problem by leaving the gym.

My take on it

I went to bed confused, last night, as to why the QB would think that setting the ball on the ground constituted giving himself up. Not until I saw the rear angle of the play could I actually tell...

And I completely don't. It was meant to be humorous. Lighten up.

I have no problem with a no-call in this situation, and telling the coach to STFU if he's mad I didn't call it, simply on the...

I'm fat, old, and slow. I got one bad knee and the other doesn't bend. If you don't want this game to take all night, you'll shag the loose balls so I don't have to...

Or is that too much?

Big finish--two threes in two seconds

My partner and I had an 8th grade girls' tournament game tonight. Down to eight seconds, and neither team could buy a basket all night, missing everything by a mile, leading to a 13-12 score. The...

He's gone in my book. He's not going to have anything worthwhile to contribute to the rest of the game anyway.

Food poisoning

Correct. They all had food poisoning (except Speilberg, who traveled with his own private stock of Spaghettio's) and Ford was NOT up to filming the elaborate fight scene they planned. So he shot him....

Not sure I'd T him the first time, depending on how loud he said it. If he was intentionally saying it loud enough for me to 'overhear' I might go for it, but if it's a blowout and he's on the losing...

It pains me terribly to say this based on your username (I'm a diehard Dolphins fan) but I find this to be profoundly true. In my younger days I always backed off from giving the T. Now I recognize...

What he'd have to do for me to call a flagrant is "violent contact such as: striking, kicking and kneeing." Reaching out to grab a kid to intentionally foul him to stop a drive is not on the same...

My favorite gym is in an old grade school. It's the second court, the old one they used to use before adding on. It's got second story bleachers only--no fans at floor level. I think the coaches like...

Honestly, I believe you are overthinking it. The 'T' is a tool to manage the game and your sanity. Use it when either are slipping away and move on.

I don't know if I agree with that. What's the line between 'attending to' and checking if they're OK? That seems like a grey area to me. Whether a coach/trainer has been called out on the other hand...

Agreed. The girl came to the table and my partner waved her in. I didn't want to make an issue of it, especially with them already playing short on numbers.

Right, JRut. I should have been more specific. It was not just a stop--it was a stop and the coach was beckoned out. Since two girls were down, and no subs were available, once they got them both up...
