    NCAA football rules question...

    Today at the game, the Pack punted on 4th down and the Fresno receiver made a bad decision. He didn't call for a fair catch. He caught the ball and was immediately slammed by a Wolf Pack defender. He hung onto the ball but the Wolf Pack was penalized for crowding the receiver. From what I understood about the rules, he was fair game as soon as he touched the ball. The "crowding the receiver" rule only applies when a fair catch is called. I guess I was wrong on this but isn't that what the fair-catch rule is for?

    The defended has to give the return man a fair chance to catch the ball, even if it is close they will call the penalty in order to protectplayers in "defenseless" positions. There is a big focus nationwide to protect players from concussions and blindside shots.

    If that's the rule then that's up to the NCAA. I don't necessarily agree with it. Failing to call for a fair catch is a mistake. It shouldn't be a way to take advantage of a close judgement call.
