<< Trailing cleats perpendicular to dirt and back knee bent toward the outfield, cleats being shoved into the ground as the only point of contact with earth... replant. It is bearing ALL the pitcher's weight.

Easiest thing in the world to see and call

And, the green words pertain to ALL of those pitchers who replant.

It ISN'T called because the umps in the SEC have been instructed to ignore the rule book and not call it. It is absolutely against those written rules. >> (3LT)

I agree completely.

Kurosawa - The umpires are ignoring every part of that rule listed above (not just the red portion). 
Barnhill is leaping.
Barnhill does become airborne on the initial drive from the pitcher's plate. 

Pretty much on EVERY pitch she delivers. 


I agree. But the secret ESPN/SEC rule is that if you're only hopping, you're not leaping. Therefore, the whole "leaping rule" does not apply.

Edit: And if you're not pushing off, you're not crow hopping. Therefore the whole "crow hopping" rule does not apply.

Those are the real rules, not the "fake rules" published in the NCAA rule book.

No... he is not.

Both sentences support each other. 

There is no contradiction.


I believe the INTENT is exactly as you have described. However, the inclusion of the first sentence is completely unnecessary, and only adds ambiguity as written.

ChinMusic...to be clear, I was never arguing THAT. Only that it wasn't contradictory

I do not remember Barnhill being called for an IP during the WCWS, so the problem extends beyond just the SEC...

I am sure that the marching orders in OKC were, we are not going to call something that hasn't been called all year.

Of course, that rationale wouldn't account for the foul-bunt calls. LOL

Looks like coaches can use Fall ball as a tryout period for freshmen before they make a call on a redshirt
