I didn't see that particular play but I did see it earlier in the game and Burr tossed the ball back. My guess is it was a way for WVU to eat up a couple of extra seconds off the clock and Burr...

Sorry, my mistake. Defender did NOT have LGP. Bottom line, in my opinion it was a clear block.

I normally don't say much other than "I'll keep an eye on it" mostly because I am not a quick thinker on how to make a quick response. I was told one time, and I like this technique, of how to...

Mark, I thought you would tell him to take 6 minutes off the clock and start the fourth quarter.

I do have a general question about concussions, though. I don't have my rule book, so I am not sure of the exact wording, but doesn't it say that a player with a concussion may not return without a...

I would add that, for me, it depends on what "continually" means. If the AC is periodically checking the official score book to verify fouls on players or how many timeouts they have left, I am...

I say offside because A2 is in an offside position at the time the ball is played. In either case the contact with the defender is irrelevant. I wouldn't buy it that A was not in a position to play...
