    If a player's knee goes down in bounds, but the ball is out of bounds, is it ruled out of bounds?

    I think we got a break on the Ridley play, but the ref who made the call looked blocked by the players. We still could have won, we just would have been more pressed for time. Arky was playing a 3 rush prevent and we were moving at will.

    In bounds. The official made the wrong call. But the only difference is it would have forced Jefferson and the offense to line up more quickly rather than using the full play clock to set up.

    No if the ball is out of bounds when his knee goes down it is out of bounds. Just like a TD the ball determines the call. I agree though I think we got lucky on that call, about damn time.

    We got lucky on that play, the clock should not have stopped. Ridley was tackled in bounds, it didn't matter that the ball was beyond the sideline.

    It was a bad call, high probability the game would have been over or close to over... you would have been in another hail mary situation.... by the time they got to spike it would have been basically 10 seconds or less and they were on the 40. Panic mode would have been next, the ref blew it.

    They would have had time to run a sideline pattern for 10 yards, get out of bounds and make the field goal. They were getting up to the line and running plays much quicker last night, like a well coached team. Congrats to JJ!

    Exactly and when his knee touched the ball was still in bounds. They missed one for us. Could this be an omen for next year?:hihi:

    This is completely wrong.

    Out of bounds is determined by body parts, not the ball.

    Exactly. ball is an extension of your hand.

    The way you said it in your first post was the sideline had a plane like the endzone. which is completely wrong.

    ex. If your knee is down in bounds, and the ball is extended over the sideline, the clock still runs.
