Thanks for all the replies. It's nice to feel vindicated (if that's the correct word). I may never work with this white hat again, and if I did I wouldn't bring this matter up. I just wanted some...

NFHS Rules - When does the ball become dead on a kick try?

This seems like a fairly straightforward question. Rule 8-3-2b states:



The reason I ask this question is because in a game last...

I'm sure it won't be long before the "Big H" strikes a deal with Raleigh to force the use of the wider stripes statewide.

Question:

In NCAA mechanics, does the Referee still signal the ball ready-for-play before every play, or has this been eliminated in situations where the 40-second play clock is running?

I've always considered IG to be a type of IFP. Rules 7-5-2(d) & (e) and Table 7-5-2 both seem to support that idea.

I still don't see how this would benefit Team B.

Assuming that Team A didn't make the line-to-gain on 4th down, wouldn't Team B want the extra 5 yards before they take over on downs?
