in order for a ball in Basketball to be considered to be out of bounds the ball MUST touch/hit the ground out bounds ... if the ball does not touch/hit out of bounds the ball is still live a play can go out of bounds to throw/pass the ball back in bounds so long as the player that is going for the ball bounds feet are in the air when he makes contact with the ball ...
The opposite would be "not caught" : missed or escaped.
In American Football, if a player has one foot out of bounds when he catches the football, he is out of bounds. If he has is in bounds when he catches the football then he caught it and it is a completed catch. If the player goes out of bounds and comes back in bounds and catches the football it is still an incomplete pass. However, if he was knocked out of bounds or if the ball was tipped, it may be a completed pass. The rules keep changing at all levels of the game.
yes, it does
yes just dont get caught
College players are not suppose to receive revenue for playing ball. However perhaps some are secretly being payed "under the table" illegally by boosters. If they are caught they will be kicked out.
A player who is caught in a playing area where they are not allowed to play in is deemed to be An (answer------ offside.)
