  1. The school in Allen county is referred to as Carroll (Ft Wayne) and the school in Carroll county is referred to as Carroll (Flora) The school is not actually located in the Fort Wayne city limits so probably why not known as Fort Wayne Carroll.
  2. Former DeKalb coach passes

    Ron always treated our football crew well at DeKalb.
  3. 3 hours between games that are to be played on the same field is unrealistic. Would be difficult to find officiating crews able to be at the game site at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm
  4. 3 games at the same site on a Friday in mid October......Is the first game going to kick off at noon?
  5. Illinois banned professional tackle football years ago.
  6. Titans QB pass play

    Doesn't matter. An ineligible receiver can not bat, muff, or catch a legal forward pass unless first touched by B.
  7. Titans QB pass play

    It is in scenario #2 where A55 then catches the pass.
  8. Titans QB pass play

    Good point Bison. In reviewing the rule book 7-5-13 it's illegal touching if an ineligible A player bats, muffs or catches a legal forward pass unless first touched by B. The passer would be one of the 6 eligible players assuming a formation with 7 on LOS.
  9. Titans QB pass play

    In order for the passer or an ineligible receiver to legally catch a forward pass it must first be touched by a defender. Illegal touching, 5 yard penalty and loss of down.
  10. Rules Ideas

    When my keys begin to pass block, as the Umpire I move towards the line of scrimmage. Generally I am at the LOS when the pass is released so if a lineman is standing right next to me there is no foul. Jets, if you want to send me some plays to look at I'll try to give you some explanation.
  11. Fake Kneeldown

    Very good point. We would be in a tough spot with the defensive team's coach.
  12. Fake Kneeldown

    2. Unsportsmanlike on the QB. Our crew will not ask regardless of the situation. If we are told by the QB or the coach they are planning on taking a knee the U will tell the defense "they are taking a knee, if the ball winds up on the ground its live, if not be smart." Have very few times had to address any abnormal actions by either team.
  13. What is a "catch?"

    I think the "initial contact with the ground" is being misinterpreted. It's not meant to be the first body part other than a hand or foot in contact with the ground. Think of a receiver laying out to catch a pass, he may have control of the ball when his elbow or stomach touches the ground but that does not mean its an official catch at that time.
  14. What is a "catch?"

    NFL Football Operations..... Player Going to the Ground A player is considered to be going to the ground if he does not remain upright long enough to demonstrate he is a clearly a runner. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball until after his initial contact with the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.
  15. Makes one wonder how some officiating crews get so many coach's votes each year??
