the clock stops because football is based on downs so if there was no way to stop the clock other than a time out the game would move too fast and would be far less exciting
Live Ball Becomes Dead
ARTICLE 2. a. A live ball becomes a dead ball as provided in the rules or when an official sounds his whistle (even though inadvertently) or otherwise signals the ball dead (A.R. 4-2-1-II and A.R. 4-2-4-I)."
THE RULE BOOK FURTHER STATES
Ball Declared Dead
ARTICLE 3. A live ball becomes dead and an official shall sound his whistle or declare it dead:
When it goes out of bounds other than a kick that scores a field goal
after touching the uprights or crossbar
when a ball carrier is out of bounds
when a ball carrier is so held that his forward progress is stopped.
When in question, the ball is dead (A.R. 4-2-1-II)."
When the ball crosses the out of bounds line.
as soon as the ball hits something.
Out of bounds, same if it hits the very top or back of the backboard!
If his knee touches inbounds, he is considered tackled in the field of play, regardless if the the ball ends up out of bounds. The clock will continue to run
Rules vary from state to state but in this case it is perfectly legal. So along as the players feet are in bounds. In highschool football its normally if one foot is in bounds and the other is not out of bounds and the player has control of the ball then its a catch

Just like in any other sport, there are boundaries around the field. However, if the disc flies past the boundaries, it is not necessarily out of bounds yet. Quality players curve the disc out of bounds and back in and, if caught in bounds, is still considered in and good. If a player jumps from in bounds and catches and throws the disc in play, before he hits the ground, that is considered in and good (this is commonly known as "the greatest" due to its difficulty to accomplish). Once the disc hits the ground out of play or a player catches the disc out of bounds, it is considered a dead disc. Also recognize that if the disc hits the ground, in the field or past the boundaries, it is a turnover and the other team picks up the disc.
If the opponent has established position out of bounds (at least one foot on the floor) then the ball would still be yours. If the opponent is in the air and has not established position out of bounds the ball is still live.
that made no sense at all... It does make sense or atleast I understand, I do believe that it is considered out of bounds. I could be wrong but I think that if it goes over the backboard most refs call that out.
If a player shoots the ball before the shot-clock goes off, and it hits the rim in any way, then yes the clock will reset.
The Ball is still in play. Back surface is the only out-of-bounds part of the backboard. (Supporting elements, such as pipes or poles or arms, etc. are obviously not part of the backboard or rim and are out of bounds.)The ball traveling OVER the top of the backboard is OUT of bounds. I believe this rule was put in place because Wilt Chamberlain would score from the other side of the board.Some sources say that if the backboard is 'fan shaped' or arched top, then the over-top rule does not apply, but does if the backboard is rectangle.It's amazing to me how many times this happens at the gym and players call it out of bounds. Cmon! You gotta know the rules if you want to play the game. No one ever knows this rule, but here it is:Rule 4, Section I - c. All five sides of the backboard (top, bottom, both sides and front face) are in play. As long as the shot stays on the top of the backboard, it is still in bounds. When it falls through the basket, the goal counts. But once the ball crosses over the backboard - regardless of where it comes to rest - it is out of bounds.
