Ruling on the Field
In the tenth episode of the Ruling on the Field Podcast, Garrett Dickerson discusses with SAC officials, Brent Eubanks and Daniel Ingram, how to coordinate and participate in a rules study session. Both Brent and Daniel each give the listeners of the Ruling on the Field their own unique perspectives on how to effectively and efficiently be involved in sessions to get the most out of studying with other officials.During the show Garrett, Brent, and Daniel take NCAA rules and model how to go through a study session using Russ Pulley's system of study while looking at three different play scenarios each coming from one of the three main parts of a football game; the kicking game, running game, and passing game.If you would like to read along with the scenarios as they are discussed, the scenarios are in written form below.
