    We are working on the practice test now. We first had to make sure we had correct answers for all the questions on the Study Guide but I believe we are very close to having it up. thanks – Paul LaRosa

    Okay, Thanks!
    Have you verified Question 2 and 130?
    #2 The manufacturer’s name and/or logo is the only commercial advertising allowed on the football. [1-3-1h]

    Last year it was true but we have had some discussion on it. The rule book states the following are also permitted on the football:

    1. Ball manufacturer’s name and/or logo;

    2. School name, logo and/or mascot;

    3. Conference name and/or logo;

    4. State association name and/or logos; and

    5. NFHS name and/or logos.

    Would any of these others be considered commercial advertising? Can you have more than one logo on the football?

    #130

    3rd down and 10 on Team A’s 10 yardline. A11 pitches the ball backward to A22, who muffs the ball on Team A’s 3 yardline. The ball is lying motionless on the 2 yardline when B33 legally blocks A11 into the ball, causing it to go into the end zone then out of bounds. RULING: Touchback . . . A’s ball 1st down and 10. [2-13-1; 5-1-1; 8-5-3c, 4]

    Based on Rule 8-5-1B: b. The accidental touching of a loose ball by a player who was blocked into the ball is ignored and does not constitute a new force I lean toward ruling this a touchback and therefore a true answer.

    Both #2 and #130 are TRUE. Your logic in #130 is right on point. No new force by A, B put ball in and out of the EZ so touchback for A.

    On #2 the key word here is “commercial”. The rule does allow for various type logos on the ball but there can only be ONE commercial logo, i.e., a Nike swoosh for example. Local assoc, state assoc, and NFHS logos are NOT commercial logos. Therefore True is correct answer, manuf logo is only commercial logo allowed.
