There is a lot more to this play that I'm not going to get into here. I was not on the field, but I'm assuming a player from Team A said something that R felt he could not ignore.

Yes, it says that's the basic spot. But, it doesn't say anything about not applying ABO. And it doesn't say that you don't replay the down. That information is in the "Football Fundamentals"...

OK. I see something now under "Football Fundamentals" that explains this. It would be nice if they put that in the actual rule for penalty enforcement, because Rules 9 and 10 do not make that clear...

I'm apparently having trouble with it.

10-5-1-c lists unfair acts and references 9-9. A USC by a player is not an unfair act as defined in 9-9, it is an unsportsmanlike act defined in 9-5. The...

Liveball vs deadball USC

Just checking, as I do not see anything super-special about this penalty enforcement.

Ball on A45, 3rd and 10. A5 takes snap in shotgun formation, takes a couple steps backward and drops to a...

I think part of the the confusion here is that the OP has the fumble recovery and dead ball spot at B2, not B4.

Didn't they try the "held ball goes to the defense" rule several years ago?

I don't disagree, but unfortunately it did, which is the premise of my question and you didn't answer it.

If this happens to you, do you change your call on the basis of a rules misapplication?

It looks strange because her first step with her left foot is rather large. But the step is towards the sideline, not the endline. I do not believe she was outside the 3x3 space in either direction.
