Read a few post backs. It is a player control foul. It was the right call. However, we should have inbounded the ball from the same spot.
bonus free-throws awarded."
Is this part of the men's game too? Further research I guess so.
My understanding is that on a rebound neither team has the possession. The foul then is a loose ball foul and results in free throws. But on the inbound OSU has possession, And Iowa State had to gain control prior to the foul in order to be shooting free throws... sounds like that is rule, and that sounds like a dumb rule... inbounds should be a loose ball
Something I just thought about. Why is it that every time ISU plays OSU, there is some tragedy that week surrounding OSU? The plane crash in 2011, there was something that happened during the week this past season in football, and either yesterday or the day before, T. Boone Pickens III died mysteriously nwhile attending TCU.
It's too bad most people on this board dont actually know the rules and are going off of what they have seen growing up...most of you have no idea what is actually in the rule book...
I actually checked the rulebook on this and couldn't find a clear statement. It seems to me that it would be the same as an in-bounds pass that gets thrown out of bounds without anyone touching it. The ball goes back to where it was thrown in, doesn't it? The only difference here is that the location of the foul may trump the location of the in-bounds pass that was never touched in play.
Here is the closest rule that I can find:
Section 5. Out of Bounds, Ball in Play from
Art. 1. When the ball is out of bounds after any violation as outlined in Rules 9-3
through 9-14, an official shall place the ball at the disposal of an opponent of the
player who committed the violation for a throw-in from the same designated spot
nearest to where the violation occurred.
Art. 2. When a throw-in provision is violated, the new throw-in shall be from the
same designated spot as that of the original throw-in.
I'm not sure that a foul before the ball is touched in-bounds fits either provision.
If Romney would've won the election, Babb would've been shooting free throws.
