Yeah, that was solid.
Something I didn't actually realize or hadn't thought about in a long time was that the pylon never actually sits within the rectangular field of play. Only the inside edge touches the field but by definition the entire pylon is in play.
I remember feeling the same way but I couldn't remember which of his knees it was and then he got right up so I didn't worry about. From a guy who has torn his ACL also, I'm more prone to cringing on any of those plays haha. I'm sure his ACL is stronger than it was when he tore it though so no worries.
Thanks for the info!
Any chance we are actually going to draft tonight? A bunch of people waiting around to draft but it looks like the Gray League got changed to an auto draft. Nobody on the league message board seems to know what's going on... a couple people adjusted their schedules for it.
I agree. I mean, it literally shows the set up of the pylon outside the end zone. It wouldn't seem hard to distinguish the difference of sides but by the rule book as long as his knee wasn't down... TD.
Definitely not impossible. I would have received this news from middle of nowhere Afghanistan...
You can go here, to download (free) the ncaa football rules book. I searched the document for "pylon". As far as I can tell, in every scenario, it just discusses hitting the pylon and not any particular side of the pylon. There is also a picture showing its placement and how it does sit outside the line.
End Zone as defined by the linked rules book...
a. The end zone at each end of the field is the rectangle defined by the goal line, sidelines and end line.
b. The goal line and goal line pylons are in the end zone.
c. A team’s end zone is the one it is defending (A.R. 8-5-1-VII and A.R. 8-6-1-I).
In the end, a W is a W and I think that's what it is going to take for us to make the playoffs.
I'm not sure this warranted down votes to lock lol.
I like keeping them once a year. If we had multiple alternates then I would entertain the idea of multiple games but until then...
I agree. I consider using initials as a nickname anyway. JT is easy enough.
Not even a guy in the area... bite on pump fakes much?
Thanks for the info! I think we are going to go to BWW. It's also closer to where we are staying so that's a plus.
haha no doubt. Ironically enough, I was at the new College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta two weeks ago and one of the stations allows you to see all of a teams bowl wins. It definitely recognized the Sugar Bowl as a win. Nice to see, especially in the South.
Let's GO BUCKEYES!!!!
I love this GIF as well! Perfect! The day is here. Pumped. Let's Go BUCKS!!
My guess. The United States of America.
