Agreed. Somersaults are headfirst jumps, so this is a legal play.

The 2nd example is a foul, as a foot or knee is foremost over an opponent during the hurdle.

As rare or as seldom-called as it...

The 99% was derived from the one scenario provided where the ball is fumbled at the 5 yard line. Obviously as you get further from the GL, the chances of the fumble being the force that put the ball...

Snapping from inside the 5, I'm going to need to see a whole heck of a lot to deem this a touchback. 99/100 this will be a safety.

Yes. The logic is they have a right to keep the yardage they earned legally up until the point where they fouled. Combine this with 3-3-3a, and we have an untimed down for B.

NFHS: If this occurs with under 2 minutes in either half and the clock would otherwise start on the ready, the offended team (in this case, B) can elect to start the clock on the snap.

Be careful when saying "loose ball" when it comes to IW's. A fumbled loose ball is handled much differently than an IW blown during a legal pass, kick, or snap.

Sorrydog said the ball was caught and then the whistle was blown. K had possession, therefore the kick had ended, so K has options.

Defensive fouls are always enforced from the basic spot. Basic spot is the end of the run. Half the distance and re-try if the penalty is accepted.

NFHS 9-8-3 - "No player, nonplayer or coach shall be in the restricted area when the ball is live."

An illegal kick is under 6-3-10. This is not an illegal kick. This is illegally kicking the ball, per 9-4-4. Two very different fouls. If it was an illegal kick, it's 5 yards not "15" anyways, and...

The basic spot is the end of the run (where the QB was sacked) because there was no pass/loose ball. If there was a legal forward pass, we'd enforce from the previous spot.

2 foot splits between the C/G, G/T, and T/TE leaves no doubt in my mind that the TE is outside the free blocking zone and there should be a flag if he blocks below the waist. Also, the R will more...

That's interesting (no sarcasm intended). Our association puts the TE outside the zone unless the splits are narrow. I wonder how divided this actually is from state to state.

Once the FB moved, the motion became a shift, which means all moving players must come set for one second prior to the snap. The R shouldn't have waived this illegal shift.
