What is the ruleing on a out of bounds kick on a kick off in football?

Is kicking the ball outof bounds on a kickoff in college football a penalty?

In the NFL if the ball goes out of bounds while receiving a kick off and touches the ball on the 5 yard line in bounds does the ball come out to the 40?

As long as the ball was kicked from the kicking team's own 30, then yes. The rule is NOT that a kickoff out of bounds is placed at the 40-yard line. The rule is that the ball is placed 30 yards from the spot of the kick. So if the kicking team had been given a 10-yard penalty on the PAT play, and ended up kicking from the 20 instead of the 30, and the ball goes out of bounds, the ball would then be placed at the 50 -- 30 yards away.

In basketball if a player shoots and has it blocked then his momentum carries him out of bounds both feet out then the blocked shot lands on him whose ball is it?

When is the ball out of bounds in a game of basketball?

If a NFL kickoff travels 40 yards hits the ground and is picked up by a member of the kicking team why does the ball go to the receiving team instead of the kicking team due to onside kick rules?

The question is the correct assessment. If a ball travels more than 10 yards, hits the ground in bounds, and the kicking team gains possession of the ball, the ball is dead and the kicking team is on offense.

Where is the ball placed when an unsuccesful field goal is attempted from the 45 yard line in Canadian Football?

In Canadian Football, a missed field goal is just another kick. If the ball is fielded in the field of play, the next play starts from wherever the receiver ran it to. If the ball is kicked out of bounds but not past the goal line, the receiving team starts from wherever the ball went out of bounds. If the ball goes into the end zone and goes out of bounds, or is fielded and the receiving player cannot or will not return it out of the end zone, a rouge is scored (one point) by the kicking team, and the receiving team scrimmages from their 35 yard line. In Canadian Football, it makes no difference where the ball is kicked from.

Is a punt in football a live ball?

its a live ball if a player on the return team touches it before it goes out of bounds or before it touches a player on the kicking team. if someone on the kicking team touches it, the return team's offense starts at the spot it was touched. A ball is always live when it's in play. If you're asking whether either team can recover it, the is no. The above mine correctly points out under what circumstances a kicking team could recover, and what causes the ball to go dead.

If a kickoff goes into the end zone without being touched is it still alive ball?

Yes. Free kicks remain live until someone either recovers the ball or it rolls out of bounds. If no one made an attempt to recover the ball, the official could blow the play dead, although that would be unlikely to ever happen. The receiving team would make every effort to field the ball, since not doing so could result in an easy touchdown for the kicking team.

If a player is out of bounds can he be the first to recover a fumble by the other team Example is Ohio State player recovering a Northwestern fumble.?

A defensive player may go out of bounds and then come back in bounds and make a tackle or recover a fumble. An offensive player may not go out of bounds voluntarily and then catch a pass. The only other rule about going out of bounds in the college rulebook is that a member of the kicking team may not go out of bounds voluntarily and then come back onto the field to make a play.
