It is still the umpire tipping teams there has been an infraction. Just one more example of the NCAA rules moving further away from every other rule set.

There is no written rule in any rule set about the coach bringing a rule book on the field. I believe in NCAA is the coach requests the rule book be consulted the umpires must go to the rule book.

It's not addressed in the rule book because dirt is not a foreign substance to the ball. I believe that is what the clarification points out.

If they do use it locally I would think they would just shorten the clock. We use 1:20 now, shorten it to 60 minutes or 1:10 and then complete the inning plus 1.
