Someone needs to have more fun with this headline:
Brad Wing, LSU's punter, has been suspended from the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Clemson, says Les Miles.
Help me out with this:
Team has fourth and short and keeps their offense on the field. QB goes under center and starts his hard count. Within a few seconds, it's obvious the offense has no intention of taking a snap, hoping to draw the other team offsides. Sometimes it works, sometimes not but once the defense picks up on it, the jig is usually up and they relax.
But the one thing I never I see is that same set up, QB goes to hard count, defense picks up on it and soften. Why does the offense never run a play with a few seconds left on the play clock once the defense thinks they've done their job by staying onsides? Seems to me that would work often.

That's exactly what I wanted the Redskins to do yesterday.

Do teams really "soften?" At best you would get a slightly slower pass rusher, but it's not like the DBs are smoking a cigarette and going to watch the WR go by.
The other answer is because NFL coaches are too dumb and conservative.
You definitely see them get less tense and often appear to claim victory before the clock runs out. And if you're going to run a QB sneak, that's really all you need.
Can someone explain to me why the Giants stood to gain no benefit from challenging that fumble vs. incomplete pass yesterday against the Ravens?
Also-- please update me on the latest edition of what constitutes a catch. When they reviewed Jacoby's, I was thinking it would def be ruled incomplete but then I only heard the tail end of Pereira who said it should have stayed a TD. I don't know why.
I think it was because that, since it had been ruled an incomplete pass, a subsequent overrule to a fumble would have been an "immediate recovery" situation -- and thus, the play would be ruled to have ended after the initial recovery.

If that play happened exactly the same way but in the end zone, it would have been incomplete. Gaining possession with two feet down in the field of play, the play should have ended as soon as the ball crossed the plane (edit: i.e. before he lost possession while going to the ground). At least thats my understanding. The Megatron rule is fucking illogical as any.
As to the first part, I just attribute that to that officiating crew's incompetence. That entire game was a clusterfuck

This is really it
lol, ESPN is definitely just trolling right now with "sources" right?
They really aren't trolling. They're just that bad.
I guess I can see why they'd do it. It would look pretty bad to have "Jay Glazer reports:" on the front page six times.
The halftime show at the Colts game last Sunday was a monkey riding a dog herding goats.
Approximately 1,000,000x better than the country act at the Orange Bowl last night.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
How come no matter what inside the twenty anything more than a 5 yard penalty is assessed as half the difference to the goal?
In other words, if the defense is flagged for, say, roughing the passer at the 17 yard line, why wouldn't you be able to get the full 15 yards?
Has Steve Spurrier ever had/recruited/played a black QB?
Antonio Heffner, Aramis Hillary, and Syvelle Newton off the top of my head. That is just at USCe.
If you were an assistant football coach, would you rather be on the sidelines or up in the booth during the game? I think I'd choose the booth. You can have snacks during the game and easy access to the bathroom.
the penalty is always either the assigned distance or half the distance to the goal, whichever is less yardage
Right, but why?
Plus A/C and heat depending on the climate.
Suppose a team is at the 11 yard line and takes a 10 yard holding penalty. They'd be moved back to the 1 under your rules. That same team at the 9 yard line would be moved back to 4.5. Why would you punish the team who was further from their own goal line? The current system ensures that can't happen.
You should move back to as far as you can move back - i.e. the 1 yard line from the 11 and back.
