Not sure if this is the case in NCAA, but in USA on the last step the runner is allowed to leave the running lane.

I found the second one interesting. That's clearly not nothing. It's...

For the protection of the officials, I think it would be a bad idea in many cases. But I'm sure I also see that as a much closer and more case specific than most here.

You're conflating the notion of whether you made a second mistake with whether your mistake was compounded. If you miss a foul call, the mistake is compounded if that player is in foul trouble. ...

Why would you make that assumption? I've definitely considered how that affects it and still think the benefits of an enforced silence policy(*) are outweighed by it's cost.

Well, that seems like a rather extreme position that I've never heard anybody defend. But there is something to be said for some judgment about how much to allow. But whether it is nonsense or not,...

Since you can't see the clock, I'm not sure how you can know this. It's possible (though unlikely) the timer hit the horn button instead of the start clock button.

LBR: Yes, one stop allowed, not on a base. Passing a base doesn't reset anything.

The call is obstruction. The runner didn't intentionally interfere with a thrown ball. But, by being crashed into, she was delayed in her advance to third.

8-6-18 applies during the pitch. This is about the LBR and it's an LBR violation. She left a base she was stopped at while the ball was in the circle.
