Goal Posts in Game Question

Post by Head Skin on Tue Apr 11, 2017 9:57 am

I swear, this is a football question. Went down Sunday to Sullivan to do some inventory stuff and see what we have and don't have. Pulled into the school and one of the goal posts has fallen over. Rusted off the support. I'll post some pictures later.

My question is this- What happens in a game if this were to happen? Do you finish the game? Do you play like Illinois/NW did a couple years ago where the offenses all go the same direction? Or do you play normally and just kick extra points at the same end?

Neither me, nor our AD, knew the answer to that.

First you make sure the broken off Goal Post is off the field

Second you go for 2


Good Question though that would be fun to see

I have absolutely no idea why that is upside down.

I would think that's the official's discretion, as I doubt there is a contingency in any rule book for a goal post falling over in the middle of a game.

I would just have them kick only at one end. If you score, you might have to go to the other endzone to kick the PAT, but then resume the game in the natural direction of that quarter.

Don't ask the officials that did the Fenwick Plainfield North Game! I am sure they would take their time and get it right................... Joking

I would think that the team that it affected (the one that scored or was attempting a field goal) would have their choice as to how they wanted to handle it.

Another twist would be, what if this situation occurred before kickoff?

Skin, glad it happened now and not during homecoming week. I could see some school administrators moving the game to somewhere else since it would be tough to get it fixed in a day.

Not sure how this works, but when I view this thread with my phone the picture is right.

When I view it hanging from the ceiling by my feet it also looks correct. But everything else is upside down.
