I don't know the NCAA rule (when I googled in search of it, the rule book

appears to be a publication for sale). In FIFA, "it is a handball offence if a player: deliberately touches the ball with their hand/arm, for example moving the hand/arm towards the ball; touches the ball with their hand/arm when it has made their body unnaturally bigger".

To me it is crystal clear that FSU's #6 played the ball with her upper arm, not her shoulder. She made a deliberate effort to hit the ball as she did and made a rather unnatural move in doing so.

My guess is that the FSU coach knew that it was a handball and was simply trying to intimidate the ref. This is not the first instance of his being a jerk.
