    Rules question

    Early in the Army game, there was a flag thrown for pass interference. I think it was Hamilton - the defender arrived early and wrapped his arms around Marquis. the refs waived off the flag saying it occurred "in the nuetral zone" so there was no interference. I thought holding was against the rules anywhere on the field. You referees out there, did they miss a call here?

    Re: Rules question

    As a coach, if my interpretation of the rule is correct, holding is called if it is being done before the ball is in the air, once the ball is in the air and the rec. is still behind the line of scrimmage, the defender can do whatever he wants.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Rules question

    I thinked they missed the call and the same thing happened in the Iowa game. I don't recall the play being behind the LOS?

    Re: Rules question

    I remember the call but I don't remember if it was behind the LOS. IIRC, it was on ISU's "rocket" screen, and if he wasn't behind the LOS, then we most likely had OL illegally downfield. Don't remember if that was the play though.

    Re: Rules question

    here are the rules for high school. i think they are similar to college.
    offensive pass interference can start at the snap! meaning the reciever cant push up for a gained advantage right away.
    defensive pass interference starts when the ball is in the air. so if the ball isnt thrown, it could be holding or illegal use of hands. in h.s. you can beat the crap out of the receiver until the ball is thrown.

    if the ball is thrown to a receiver BEHIND or in the LOS, all pass interference restrictions are off!!

    think of a screen play to a rb behind the LOS. the defense can hit him before the ball gets there!! and the lineman can hit a defender down field as long as that ball is caught behind the LOS.

    Re: Rules question

    The ref gave the explanation that the ball was touched in the neutral zone. It was very close but I thought it was a bad call. I thought it was outside of the neutral zone and not in the backfield. Oh well. We still won.

    Re: Rules question

    thanks acrozier, thats another point. as soon as the ball is touched no pass interference can be called.

    That's the way I understand it, which is why I think holding should have been called since the defender had his arms wrapped around the receiver. Holding is not allowed anywhere on the field anytime the ball is live. The defender could hit him, but he can't HOLD him. Isn't that right?
