Doug's last name is Sirmons. Jones's first name is Les.

I'm especially happy for Sirmons. I don't think there's anyone better right now, and I'm excited for him to finally break through to the...

I think Camron nailed all three of these. I did have a problem with the first play, though, because he didn't seem to be calling the illegal move, but a legal move that followed. If you come that...

Doesn't matter that Smith wasn't closed down, as he had a clear angle on the defender all the way. O'Neill made no effort at all to get an angle on the play from the slot, and actually didn't have a...

Dissent.

Corbin was the lead on that play. Earl Walton came from the trail to get this call. I was really happy for Earl to have a different type of spotlight moment at the end of this season....

The wink was very clear--definitely not a "blink."

That said, I don't see any reasonable objections to anything in that game beyond the Echenique play. And I'm still trying to figure out why...

Dissent.

If PTS had been used and functioning properly, the clocks--both of them--would have stopped on the whistle. Replays show that when Corbett hit the whistle there was one second...

This error would have been correctable to start the half, no? I've been in the rulebook all half, and I'm struggling to see how it's not correctable.

If I'm wrong, mea culpa to the crew (sort...

NCAA mechanics for a first down gained inbounds

I tried to find the answer on my own, but I was unable to find a CCA manual online. If anyone could check my understanding of the mechanic here, I'd be most grateful.

From the looks of his body language as he finishes his signal and looks at Luckie, I don't think Driscoll liked the call very much. Of course he might have been fine with the call, but just a little...
