My biggest concern watching this video wasnít the play. It was game management and what was surely violations of fire code regulations.

It took me a few looks to confirm the ball actually was handed off and not just obtained incidentally by the teammate before the dribble ended.

So I agree, BC violation, but I donít think itís...

Rule Change Proposals

Agree with all of Camronís positions, except note that:

6-7, Iím indifferent. If adopted, states like MN and WI that play in halves would have some decisions to make.

9, Yes, but the term...

IMHO, I donít want to inject selfish impatience here if the coach of Team B is clever enough to find a niche in the rules like this. Nothing unsporting here. Itís just good strategy.

Per Yahoo Sports, there will be four replacements, and they were meeting protocols just in case (sort of like alternate jurors still sit in the jury box).

No names yet. Two will not be replaced...

Correct. And I donít think all of the cases are in Rules by Topic. Many of them, yes, but not all.

Great video, thanks Raymond!

Iím going to disagree with myself. When I first saw this, I thought it was more flop than foul, and I thought L was late rotating and turning his head, thus not seeing the whole play. Upon further...

Vid Request: Post TC Foul w/ L Rotating

BYU @ LMU, 2/20/21, CBSSN, 1st Half leading to the 15:27 mark.

I think itís a great play for discussion from both a situational and mechanical standpoint.

+1. Enough doubt here that I think this is a good no-call. Also, the whole crew is very engaged in the play, moving to improve, etc. Makes any call or no-call that much more credible.
