NCAA Discussion / Re: How to properly answer a rule question.

One thing that helps me is to visualize the play in my mind's eye as it's described in the question.  That helps connect words to visual actions you see.

Great suggestion.  When I was in the training class some 20 years ago our instructor suggested just that.  If you're struggling with understanding the play in text format (the question) visualize what the play would look like with players on the field.  Makes the next step much clearer from my experience.

I'd have a blow & throw dead ball false start in both cases since at no time were all 11 Team A players set for 1 second before the snap.  Also, can't be in "legal motion" since legal motion can only be after player has been set for 1 full second and the motion started on Team A's side of the NZ which it couldn't have done here (ball at A-20).

I can't believe that I missed this...  I will attend one or both games if I can.

If you have other suggestions I will be glad to receive them.

There are a few 8-man teams in my neck of the woods. They all play on a regular field.

The Texas A & M spring game is April 13th in College Station.

Even better, The University of Texas (ranked pre-season #7 in the country by ESPN) spring game will be played the same day. It's scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at DKR-Texas Memorial stadium in Austin.

Tomorrow night I address the coaches at their Spring clinic. I'm sure a  portion of the meeting will be regarding the 40" clock and will be as ready as I can for that. An even hotter topic will be Maine's decision to have an 8-man football division. The 10 schools involved will be allowed to :

(1) Continue to use 300' X 160' field (all 10 have them;

(2) Modify to 240' X 120' field (none have 'em - no new schools, only schools dropping to 8);

(3) Keep @ 240' but reducing to 120' wide.

Any opinions from you 6-8-9 football guys regarding the size of fields and other aspects that may arise ????? Moving sidelines sounds much easier then moving end zones...ie...moving goal posts. I believe the schools involved all aspire to return to 11 some day.
