This has bothered me since it happened live. I've never seen it mentioned anywhere, including the broadcast. On the opening kickoff, Christian Jones muffs the kickoff and just wanders off. The other back on kick return mozys over and casually picks it up. We definitely had time to recover it, and no one on our team was in a hurry either. The ref didn't blow it dead until the Alabama player took a knee.
Am I in the twilight zone, or was this a huge blunder by like 10 players for both teams?
