Every player is lined up and ready for a kickoff. Referee blows the whistle, play clock starts, and ticks off 12 seconds.The kicker then walks up to the ball picks it up,and moves it 10 yards sideways down the line? Legal or not?
That is correct. The officials should just drop a bean bag at the spot. Keep in mind that the ball isn't dead just because they touch it (unless the previous post comes into play regarding the ball being at rest). The will need to pick it up. In either case the ball will belong to the receiving team at the spot of the bean bag.
