Why do defensive linemen have to put one hand on the ground in the NFL game?

They don't, there is no rule that states they have to. One reason the defensive lineman gets in a three point stance (one hand on the ground) is to put him on the same level as the offensive lineman, who also is in a three point stance. One of the keys of being able to keep the offensive lineman from controlling a defensive lineman is for the defensive lineman to have a lower center of gravity. If the offensive lineman can get low on a defensive lineman he can pretty much move him anywhere he wants. This is particularly important on running plays where the offensive line is to trying to open a 'hole' for the running back to run through.

What happens if the disk is dropped by an offensive team in ultimate frisbee?

the offensive team switches to play defense and the previously defensive team picks up the disc and can attack their opponents end zone (i.e. they switch to offense). this happens whenever the offensive team drops the disc or it hits the floor whilst they are attacking, be it through a missed-throw or if a defensive player knocks the disc to the ground. defense do not have to catch the disc to turn over the play.

Is a runner out if the first baseman has his hand on the ball while the ball is still no the ground but does not lift the ball off the ground?

Yes. They would be out. Think of it like this. If a runner is running home from third and the catcher slides onto the plate with the ball, the runner is still out, even though the catcher is on the ground. As long as the Defensive player has possession of the ball, and is touching the base, the offensive player would be considered out.

What is a fumble-rooskie?

It's basically a run play that's drawn up to be ran by an offensive lineman. The quarterback takes the snap but the center pulls the ball back and places the ball on the ground. The quarterback still goes through the motion of handing off the ball to a RB and the RB plays as if he has the ball. However, the ball that is on the ground is picked up and ran by an offensive lineman. The play is now an illegal play. Placing a live ball on the ground is incredibly risky considering the athleticism and awareness of defensive players. If a defensive player picks it up, it's a fumble recovery. And, considering that the offense is faking like it's a normal play, it's probably a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown. Nebraska used to run it under Tom Osborne
