    Getting closer to no cutting at all

    I'm not sure on statewide numbers yet, but for our chapter we currently have 16 new members attending our new members class. That's a good number for us but we are still right around where we ended last year in overall membership. Recruiting isn't usually the problem, it's retention. I'm...

    Getting closer to no cutting at all

    Just to clarify, chop blocking has been illegal for at least 20 years. A chop block is a combo block between teammates. One blocks high and the other blocks low.

    Getting closer to no cutting at all

    The UIL has already accepted the changes that NCAA made and they apply to both 11 man and 6 man. The UIL could have made an exception to these rules but they will never make an exception to a player safety rule. They did make an exception this year to change the playclock after a TD and after...

    Real Bad Officials

    Welcome to the life of the imperfect. Typical of the human race. I've been searching for perfection for many years but I keep hitting brick walls.

    Real Bad Officials

    The training at the TASO level is at the highest levels I have ever seen. The UIL and TASO have a great relationship. The UIL once tried to take over officiating and it didn't work out. The problem with officiating is recruiting and retention. It's not bad officiating that you claim but...

    Six Man vs Eleven Man

    After playing 11 man for the first 2 quarters it was Windthorst 7 and Throckmorton 0 at halftime. Not sure what the score would have been if played 11 man the whole game. I remember the coach saying they didn't score enough points in the first half. He apparently knew what was about to happen...

    d2 State champs game

    Since instant replay is used in state championship games they may want to consider if they want to have replay for this one. If so, the logistics of that will need to be worked in and would probably need to have a stadium (Texas Tech) that is already equipped with the equipment needed for that.

    Six Man vs Eleven Man

    Take a look at what happened a few years ago when a sixman team actually played an 11 man team. They played 11 man the first half and I believe it was 7 to 0. The second half that sixman team dominated.

    New NCAA Rule?

    (Exception: If the passer is legally throwing the ball away and the ball lands near or beyond the sideline.) The exception is all you need. If this happens, then the rule for ineligible downfield does not apply due to this exception. The rule was changed because there wasn't any advantage...

    Penalty inforcement

    Oldergoat, my statement was not intended to be directed at you. Truth be told it applied to me. Prior to being an official 20 years ago I was a fan. Not just any fan. My uncle, my cousin, and myself would travel to games and we thought we were experts andwe were very obnoxious. I then saw...

    What do you Officials think?

    Well, when the snapper addresses the ball they almost always "adjust" it forward by 1/2 a yard so they get that back. :)

    Kickoff Alingments

    As long as they are not beyond 5 yards when the are running. Inside of 5 yards they can run.

    What do you Officials think?

    I'm having a hard time seeing what you are talking about. What should happen when they were a 1/2 short at the 42 1/2. The ball goes over and will be spotted either on the 42 or the 43 the chain should be moved to the nose of the football. So instead of going 42 1/2 to 32 1/2 for a first...

    Kickoff Alingments

    No requirement. All players except the one who kicks it cannot be further than 5 yards from behind where the ball is kicked when the ready for play is given. One foot touching is considered within 5 yards. Other than that the other 5 players can line on the other side of him.

    And probably got those multi alias users arguing with their other alias.
