Agreed. We have too many coaches at the HS level and MS too, that don't know how to properly submit a lineup because the rule codes are different.

I for one do not favor changing the rule. I think the rules are absolutely correct the way they are. A player should not be allowed to contact the net or step across the center line.

1) I don't...

Are you sure the knee was still on the ground. From what was discussed years ago about a play in Michigan, the holder can lift his knee from the ground on a play like this before pitching the ball. I...

Now that I think about it, the replacement wasn't with 11, it was with 21, who was the third player they were trying to do replacements with, so she went into the CB, not RB position. 11 was going...

I agree. In Michigan, once you have ejected the coach, he is ejected. You can't later go back (and I'm going to try to quote Mark Uyl, now the MHSAA Director) tell the coach "you are just going to...

Maybe your area doesn't see multiple OT games, but Michigan seems to. This season only three games though have gone multiple OT's. Of those, two went three OT's and the other went 4OT's.

You've never seen me try to make a signal. I can make anything look goofy without any help. Add in the help of trying to hold a whistle somewhere in my hand and I could be a Goofy YoutTube sensation.

I personally think this is a crap rule, because it is inconsistent with the effect of the penalty at other points in the game.

For example, we have a 4th down stop by the Team B at...
