    Pick six #2, to the same DB, who also has 17 tackles on the day.

    Should've known Purdue (lol) couldn't help but to embarrass themselves.

    On the plus side, Purdue didn't look overmatched. Need a QB.

    Wayne hung on against Moeller 24-22. Not without controversy, though. Moeller scored a TD, but failed on the 2 pt. So they needed an onside kick. First attempt, Wayne recovers but there's an offside, and they re-kick?! Of course, they get a second opportunity, and Moeller recovers it. Luckily, their offense shit the bed, and Wayne held on.

    Any HS fans that can clarify (or justify) the refs decision to have them re-kick? Doesn't seem right to punish the team that recovered it, while the team that re-kicks still only needs to kick it 10 yards.

    Botched call or just a really shitty rule?

    Not sure if I'm misreading that or what, but a pre-snap penalty requires you redo the try, because the original attempt is nullified.
     
  10. Well it's offsides. So the play isn't called dead at the beginning. Imagine a full kickoff. At least in college or pros, if there's offsides the play continue us and the receiving team can decline or accept and have a rekick

    Assuming the ref blows the play dead. They let it play until the receiving team recovered. Either way, seems like a terrible rule for onside kicks. It doesn't really penalize the kicking team at all, aside from moving the ball back 5 yards.

    IMO, you either make them clear 15 yards or it should be a live ball and if the receiving team recovers it's their ball, game over.

    I think it is in HS football, and that's the issue I'm having with it.

    I could see it being beneficial for normal kickoffs, but it doesn't seem right that the same should apply to onside kickoffs.

    An FCS team that lost their star QB... to Oregon. :lol:
    That's like playing an FCS team w/that bracket's version of JT, and instead of him just getting injured for the rest of the year - he now plays for Alabama.
    This should help matters

    It's early, but a quick Heisman watch update. TCU's Boykin #92 QB rating. Week one statistics can be slightly skewed. :biggrin: At least TCU played a quality opponent, whereas Baylor played SMU. I digress.

    Regarding the Buckeye's Heisman candidates, the one aspect that will really hurt is SOS ie what put Johnny Football over the top was A&M beating Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

    And when did Wayne/Moeller start playing college football?

    Great opportunity to see potential future Buckeyes play? Orr watch Purdue continue to set the Big Ten Conference back decades? Tough choice.
