  1. My bad. It’s not Pioneer. It’s Frontier.
  2. Clinton Prairie is coming up to the Region to play Hanover Central this Friday, instead of their scheduled game with Pioneer. HC was open due to Bishop Noll's decision not to field a varsity team this Fall. Are the Panthers open, or do they have another opponent lined up?
  3. Hammond Bishop Noll

    No clue. I bet they’re glad they did, though. John Harrell’s site still list CP and Frontier as Week 1 opponents.
  4. Hammond Bishop Noll

    Hanover Central has filled their open date week 1 when they would have played Bishop Noll by picking up Clinton Prairie. The Gophers will travel north for the game.
  5. Tricky Penalty Enforcement

    That's correct. Hard to think of this as a loose ball play, but it is, by definition, since there was a loss of possession by the offense behind the neutral zone. Mechanics hint: No beanbag on the fumble.
  6. Tricky Penalty Enforcement

    It’s previous spot enforcement all right, but no one has correctly articulated why. Hint: as usual, it’s in the definitions.
  7. Tricky Penalty Enforcement

    Why is it enforced from the previous spot? This is NF rules.
  8. This one is very challenging. You really have to understand the rules on penalty enforcement to get this one right. 3rd and 16 from A's 40. A8 catches a pass at A 44 and B5 grabs and twists his face mask, but he does not go down. A8 reverses his field and circles back around, is hit and fumbles at the A 38 where B7 recovers. Who’s ball, what down and distance, and where will it be put in play?

    Got people’s attention, didn’t it? That’s the function of a headline.
  10. Contact by DB on Potential Receiver

    Here’s the ruling: First and 10 for A from its own 20-yard line. Receiver A1 sprints from his 20-yard line and cuts sharply toward the middle at his own 30-yard line. A1 makes no attempt to block defensive back B1 who is standing on the 30-yard line. B1 pursues A1 and pushes him from the side using his open hands. Contact is made on A1's upper arm before the pass is thrown. A1 was moving away from B1 when the contact occurred. QB A2 subsequently (a) throws an incomplete pass over the head of A1, or (b) is sacked at the A 15 yd. line. Ruling: Illegal use of hands by B1. A defender may legally contact an eligible receiver beyond the neutral zone before the pass is in flight provided the receiver is a potential blocker; however, if the receiver is not attempting to block, has gone past the yard line occupied by the defender, or is moving away, it is illegal for the defender to use hands in the manner described. In (a), First and 10 for A from their own 30-yard line after administering the 10 yard penalty. The penalty is enforced from the previous spot, since this was a loose ball play. In (b), it is first and 5 from the A 25 yd. line. because this was a running play. The penalty is enforced from the end of the run, and the down is replayed.
  11. Contact by DB on Potential Receiver

    I suppose I should have said we’re using high school rules. So, there’s no such thing as “illegal contact.” And it can’t be pass interference since the contact took place before the pass was thrown. But, you’re heading in the right direction.
  12. This is one of the better discussions going on the GID, IMO. But the discussion is much better when someone says “I’m for this,” or “I’m against that,” and then supports it with some reasoning. Otherwise, the comment doesn’t add much.
  13. Urban Meyer Death Watch

    Actually, Title IX does not come into play, since the “alleged victim” was not a University student or employee. Nonetheless, there is a University policy that requires reporting in this instance. Title IX has been mentioned only because there is a provision in his contract requiring him to comply with Title IX. If he had violated that, he could be fired “for cause,” which means no multi-million $$ buyout.
  14. Urban Meyer Death Watch

    All well and good. But the question is not whether the accuser (I like that better than “alleged victim”) is telling the truth. The question is whether Meyer heard the allegations, when he heard them, and what he did about it. The accuser’s credibility has nothing to do with that.
