  1. This would likely be a personal foul but it could be called holding even though there wasn't technically a hold. Fortunately its nothing I've ever seen in nearly 30 years of officiating.
  2. To put it simple, you cannot prohibit a WR or back from running their route.
  3. PLEASE READ ENTIRELY BEFORE MAKING PICKS. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN YOUR PICKS NOT COUNTING Week 8 Picks. Remember to list the teams EXACTLY as I have them below. Do not change the order of the games, or abbreviate on your own. Turn off your caps lock and do NOT double space your picks. Easiest way is copy and paste the games listed below and then delete one of the teams. The only acceptable form of entry is how they are typed below. Anything different will make that selection wrong. I will not correct them. DO NOT edit your picks. Once you make the post, if you want to make a change, PM me and I’ll make the change. I enter games onto the spreadsheet throughout the week and do not go back through the thread, so if you make a change on your own, the changes will be IGNORED. PM me any changes. This thread will lock at 10 PM Friday. In the event that there are games on Thursday night and you don't enter your picks here until Friday, only the Thursday games will not count (provided everything else is entered correctly). So if you forget until Friday, its ok to enter picks as the Saturday games will still be counted for you. If you don’t get your picks in before the thread is locked, you may PM me your picks. I must have them in my inbox before 11AM on Saturday morning in the proper format. The results of this week’s picks will be posted either Sunday Night or sometime Monday (we have a Sunday Night game this week). Each game is worth 3 points unless otherwise noted. The games this week are worth 34 points (does not include bonus points). Tie Breaker this week is combined score for Auburn/Arkansas. The tiebreaker/bonus is optional. Remember no editorials on the games, just make the picks. Take any discussion to another thread. I need a little help here from the players: When copying/pasting your selections and deleting one of the teams, PLEASE make sure there are no spaces before or after your selection. Please make sure you delete any blank spaces before and after your picks. To help you understand what I’m referring too, if you highlight your picks like you are going to copy them and the blue highlight box goes past the team name, you have extra spaces in the name and those need to be removed.

  5. YES. It's illegal. It is not defensive pass interference (A.R. 7-3-8-III and 7-3-9-III): 1. When, after the snap, opposing players immediately charge and establish contact with opponents at a point that is within one yard beyond the neutral zone. Defensive players may ward off or legally block an eligible pass receiver until that player occupies the same yard line as the defender or until the opponent could not possibly block him. Continuous contact is illegal

  7. titan, Why don't you help him with that and just take out the trash.
  8. I see that all the time too and I cant understand why they let this go. This isnt restricted to SEC crews either. For whatever reason they choose to not flag it and I wish I had an answer. One thing I will say is we are trained to not flag something like a hold if the player being held makes the tackle anyway. Now im not talking about 5 yards away making the tackle. Im talking about a hold that happens basically within a step or two of the tackle.

  10. Since nobody has started it yet. Here we go. Time to take care of business.
  11. heading out soon to see Halestorm and Godsmack here in Pensacola. Ready to ROCK!!!
  12. Remember I said in my initial that the official responsible for the WR on that play shuld have seen it to flag it. Again, replay GOT IT RIGHT. Who cares if it wasn't flagged on the field. REPLAY WORKED. Now, we do agree and always have that they missed the Williams fumble. I'm still not sure what they saw or didn't think they could see that led to them upholding the call. That one call doesn't signify corruption or incompetence. This discussion is about 2 plays out of likely over 100 combined between the teams.
  13. So, hypothetically speaking here. Let's say you are a white hat on a football crew. A member of your crew rules a fumble 20 yards down field. Now tv replays the play for the fans to see and its highly questionable whether it was actually a fumble or not. You are telling me as a white hat you have no desire to see that play? Really? College game is lucky, they have tv cameras all over the place. Imagine a high school game where replay isn't used. We have ONE look at every play and have to make a decision. There's nobody to look at it and make a change or review it for a potential change. We MAY get a game film the next week to review the game and get to look at it. At the college level they have instant access to everything. We do agree that the only thing that matters is getting the call right. I fail to see the rationale of not allowing the white hat to see the play though. That just doesn't seem to make sense. You do realize that instant replay is done by a committee now, right? Why can't the white hat be part of the process and actually see the play being reviewed while the replay committee is looking at it as well?
  14. Recap on a few things from last night. 1. The fumble by Seth Williams. That wasn't a fumble because he was already down. Not sure how the replay booth couldn't tell that after slowing it down. They missed this one. 2. Probably should have been a horse collar tackle called on the MSU player that tackled Nix on his long run and forced the fumble that went out of bounds. 3. Targeting call late in the first half. I know a lot were complaining about it not being flagged on the field but what most people don't realize is when a play starts, every official has their own key. That means they are responsible for that player for the first several yards (particularly a WR) of the play. As the player continues to move, he will enter the covering area of a different official. It's highly possible the official that had him as their key and was watching him, didn't have the proper angle to see the hit to flag the targeting. He should have, however, seen the hit enough to know it was at the very least a late hit and a hit on a defenseless player. BUT, this is why replay is being used. This is also why replay has the authority to call a targeting foul when its not called in live action. Officials are HUMAN. They aren't going to see everything and its also possible that another player was between him and the player he was responsible for. I know these sound like excuses, but until you actually get on the field and know what each officials responsibilites are, it can difficult to understand everything that happens. We as fans watching at home have the benefit of seeing the play over and over. The officials on the field see it once and always at full speed. To expect them to see everything and get everything right is ludicrous. The bottom line on the targeting call was, THEY GOT THE CALL RIGHT. It's ok that it took replay to make the call. Not sure why so many in the game thread got bent out of shape over it. The system worked exactly how it's supposed to work and how it was designed to work. It was TEXTBOOK TARGETING. ANY contact with the crown of the helmet is targeting. IT does NOT have to be helmet to helmet to be a targeting foul. I'm not sure why so many people have a hard time understanding that.
