What is the difference between a default and a forfeit?
A default occurs when a team captain notifies the Intramural Sports Office that their team will not be able to make a scheduled game. Teams that provide notice prior to 10am of game day will receive a 3.0 sportsmanship. Teams that provide notice between 10am and 3pm will receive a 2.0 sportsmanship rating. Teams that provide notice after 3pm but at least an hour before game time will receive a 1.0 sportsmanship rating. In addition, teams that default will receive a loss by the forfeit score found in the rules of each individual sport.
A forfeit occurs when a team does not have enough members present to start the game at game time. If at least on member of a team is present the opposing team may decide to wait for the other team to show up. If the time discussed in the rules has passed before the minimum number of players arrives, the game will be forfeited. By forfeiting the game, the team will receive a 0 sportsmanship rating, as well as, lose by the forfeit score found in the rules of each individual sport.

What is a protest and what situations can be protested?
A protest is an attempt by a player to challenge an interpretation of the rules by an Official. At the time the play in question occurred, the team captain will need to tell the official that he or she would like to protest the last play. All of the information and paperwork will be filled out prior to resuming play. The game will then continue with the interpretation of the rules determined by the official. The Intramural Sports office will then review the situation. If it is determined that the call was incorrect the game will be replayed from the point in which the protest was filed.
Only interpretations of the rules and player eligibility may be protested. A player may not protest a judgment call by an Official. An example of a judgment call would be pass interference in flag football or traveling in basketball. However, this may be protested if pass interference or traveling is called and the penalty is improperly enforced.
How does a team make it to playoffs? How is sportsmanship involved in the process?
Teams become eligible for playoffs based upon their record and sportsmanship ratings. The number of teams in the bracket will depend upon the number of teams in the sport and each specific league. In determining rankings, record will be used first, then point differential, and finally head to head, if applicable.
Each team must maintain at least a 3.0 in sportsmanship in order to be eligible for playoffs. The sportsmanship rating is determined for each team after the game by the Officials. The rating is on a scale from 0-4 with 0 being unacceptable and 4 being outstanding. Sportsmanship does not determine ranking in playoffs, simply if a team will be eligible to go to playoffs or not.
