Rules About Posting In This Section


After speaking with the other Board Moderators, and fielding several complaints from other posters who feel they may be receiving inaccurate information to their questions, we have determined it necessary to apply a few guidelines in regards to posting replies on this section of the Board.


1. Since this section is titled Ask The Official we would ask that responses to posts be answered by officials, and not by coaches, fans, wrestlers, or other interested parties.

2. Officials who posts responses on this section of the Board will be asked to identify themselves by their actual name, and not by their Board user name.

3. Officials who post responses about specific rules will be asked to cite the rule number and page number where the reference can be located in the NFHS rule book.

4. Questions regarding IHSAA By-Laws cannot be answered, and questions regarding those topics will be referred to the IHSAA for an appropriate response.

5. Any posts not abiding by the above listed guidelines will be deleted by the Board moderators.


We are certainly not inferring that rules and their applications in regards to situations cannot be answered by someone other than a licensed official, however, there have been several incidents in which a question was answered inaccurately, or at least partially inaccurately, by those with good intentions, but perhaps the wrong information. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.   :)
