This is maybe the coolest manipulation of the rules I've ever seen. I think I just became a Wisconsin fan.

Someone already posted this...I don't remember in what thread though...

That is fantastic dickbaggery.

Funny shit. Would be funnier watching Joe Pa getting so upset if he didn't get an injury requiring surgery in less than 2 hours' time.

Maybe that makes it more funny.

I watched this game last Saturday. Wisconsin drained the last 13 seconds off the clock in the first half. It's not like Penn State was going to do anything with the ball besides kneel down.

I just wonder if you're allowed to do it near the end of a game. That would be quite the travesty.

It is also funny that a rookie coach pulled this on the old man.

Why wouldn't they be?

I have to remember to watch this when I get home.

The NCAA rule is that if offsides is called on a kickoff the receiving team has the option of forcing a rekick from five yards back or taking the ball five yards from the end of the runback.

Since I haven't seen the play at all, I assume that Penn State recovered the initial kickoff, not Wisconsin, right?

So why didn't Penn State just take the ball+5 yards if they were concerned about the clock running out?

Hilarious.

The best part of it is that ultimately Wisconsin ends up recovering the fumble, but they can't run a play because there's no time left on the clock.

Just watched the clip. The Big 10 officiating crew blew the call. Penn State should have been given the choice of accepting the ball at the end of the run+5 yards. They weren't. I think the look of stunned disbelief on Bielema's face was due to him thinking that he was just going to kick it off once and stuff PSU way deep with the coverage-when they gave him the ball to kick again he was like "Awesome."

College officials do such a wonderful job, don't they?

Heh. You're asking me? Check the user name and ask what I think of college officiating this year. :mad:

(Actually, I think college officials do a pretty good job most of the time. They should, however, be called on it when they blatantly misinterpret a rule.)

This is the kind of thing that could get me to actually watch a football game that didn't involve one of my teams.
