Texas Topics / Re: PROP Approved Rules changes - now we wait for the UIL
« Last post by ElvisLives on Yesterday at 09:07:43 PM »
If they did pass it, why wouldn't you try to enforce it?

Not trying to be insulting, but, with that comment, you would not seem to be an official working UIL (Texas) HS football. Coaches from both teams in every contest have the Ďrightí to accept or reject officials for their games. So, official R1 enforces the rule, and keeps a star player out of a game for some amount of time while he gets pants that get his knees covered. Even if they win the game, Coach X doesnít like being handicapped for even one down, and vows to scratch that official/crew from ever working his games. Word gets around to other coaches that official R1 enforces the rule, but official R2 doesnít, so they should choose R2. R1 finds out that he isnít getting assignments to those top programs (who have strong attendance at their games, thus greater officiating fees), and R1 decides not to enforce that rule, any more.
And so it goes.

..has that ever been done before? (adopting something PROP committee denied?)

Even if they do, it doesn't change anything really - officials still won't enforce it.

What uniform rule? Theyíre going to take the rule denied by PROP and adopt it anyway?

I second that question: What uniform rule (change)? There arenít any, unless the UIL unilaterally chooses to adopt something. If they do, then I say that we hit Ďem hard in week 1, so they either show they mean it and gives 100% support, or decide they donít really mean it, and then WE just go back to what we have been doing, which is nothing.

We all have heard the TASO Football Officers push for us to try to police the uniform situation since 2018. Hopefully by now, the coaches are tired of this mess and will allow us to enforce the rules since the oked this uniform policy.

I've been intown (on the rules committee) since 1993 and couldn't find when this was born from my records. It may be dated back to the Knute Rockne era  :o.
I have a Rules Book from 1974 and the stripes were illegal then.    1-5-3g
The rule was not shaded, so the rule was enacted before that year.

Last year they wrote their own rule regarding defensive linemen on field goal attempts that was not even a blip on the NCAA radar. Itís not quite the same, but itís the only time I remember them going off on their own in the almost 15 years Iíve been doing this.

The Federation may have to meet in an emergency session to prohibit transverse stripes on gloves as I seen nothing to prohibit this!

1-5-3c(1) : "Ball colored helmets,jerseys,patches,exterior arm covers/pads, undershirts or GLOVES."  IMHO, this could apply and woulsd save the need for an emergency meeting.  tiphat:

I can't tell when it was enacted, but I believe it was to prevent sleeves from simulating the stripes on the ball for the same reason the uniform can't be ball colored.
