  1. 7 Man Crews in the Playoffs?

    I must admit, this is the most lively the officiating forum has been in years. Great discussions
  2. Switching footballs for PAT

    Our philosophy is 100% inline with the rule and from what other officials have posted. We will not bring in a new ball for kicking situations on a PAT or a punt, the team must use the same ball that was in play from the previous play (unless it's a long pass OOB and we bring in a new ball from the sideline). Whatever label "name" they want to give that ball is their choice.

    I have to chuckle at that comment Muda. Most varsity officials travel on average 45+ mins one way to a game. So the term "homers" is rarely accurate.
  4. This has happened to our crew in the past. Schools schedule so far out and sometimes end up changing schedules or moving home vs away. This leaves crews scrambling to pick up games since the IHSAA requires a certain # of games to advance in the tournament. Crews will take any game that comes available regardless of teams or travel involved when in a pinch.

    Are there any C-ville fans on this site? Curious how they will stack up against Cascade
  6. I can tell you the exact rule that the officials used was the momentum rule. Which Bison covered earlier. The calling official felt that the defender stripped the ball and his momentum carried him to the goal line. If you watch the replay closely you can see where the officials bagged the momentum spot. I know this because I was the official who made the call.
  7. I have watched the replay of the game, and that's how I am able to recall the 2 plays I would like to see have different outcomes. One of them does happen to be the roughing the passer call you are referring to and the other is a sideline catch late in the 4th quarter. But as far as communication goes with the coaches, I don't understand. The head coach is the person who all communication goes through. The head coach was adequately communicated with. When the head coach was no longer trying to communicate and was telling the officials what to do and not to do, then that is where the communication ceases to exist.
  8. I was referring to the fumble as the missed call, and I like your wording even better :-) Just curious as to what things mechanically that you did not like? Is it because of personal preference or mechanically according to the manual?
  9. Please elaborate.... There is one call in that game where the officials missed it. It happens and no one is perfect all the time. I won't go into great detail as to how it got missed because I figure you will not accept any justification. But I would like to hear your argument as to why the officials were not top notch.
  10. I was asking you, sorry I didn't know how to quote a post on my phone when I replied. By a tough night are you referring to missed calls? or poor communication with the coaches? or bad call selection? do you have specifics? Off the top of my head, there are 2 plays I can recall.
  11. I'm merely going to play Devils advocate here for a second. Having had both 5a teams earlier in the season, this knee pad issue was brought to our attention. If you noticed these kids are bigger than most for their age and manufacturers make many sizes, but when a school orders pants they don't order specific pants for every kid. Therefore it makes it extremely hard for someone who is 6'4" and wears a small waist. In warm ups we told them to make sure the pads cover their knees, and they do their best to pull them down. Some of them even wore knee pads that aren't part of the pants to try to comply with the rule. Are you going to penalize a team for have abnormally athletic players?
  12. Sectional 29

    Will field conditions play a factor this week with rain?
  13. Sectional 29

    So is everyone just giving the game to Tri-West then? Should someone call Edgewood and let then know to stay home and enjoy the extended trick-or -treat hours?
  14. Sagamore Athletic Conference 2013

    Western Boone was doing something to their field over the summer, looks like it was stripped down to bare dirt when I drove by. Any word there?
