Now Here Is a Winning Post From BN

    I think I lost 40 IQ points when I read this post from BN. CLASSIC!!!!


    From BN OhioState2002NC:

    I've been thinking about this and you never ever see a coach use this wrinkle in the rules to his advantage but I hope our coaches read this and use it one day.
    Have you ever noticed that in college rules, the clock keeps running when the previous play stays in bounds, only an incompletion, out of bounds play or time out can stop it.
    So think back now, like the Kansas State game or Miami game. We have the ball, under 3 minutes to play and we have a lead and just need a first down. Lets say we are at midfield.
    If we run the ball, and the opposing team has no more time outs, there is nothing stopping us from lining up, then with very few seconds on the 30 second clock, taking a penalty, like delay of game or illegal procedure if someone moves before the snap. The ref blows the whistle, calls the penalty, and walks off 5 yards, but then they blow the whistle again, and the clock RESTARTS AGAIN, more time off the clock.
    I can't see any reason why you can't do this again and again and again and again until there is no more time left on the clock.
    Think about how mad we all were when Ross ran out of bounds vs Kansas State and then we had to punt and they
    could have gone down the field on us, all we had to do was take a knee, and then let the clock go to almost 0, then take a penalty like illegal procedure and they would restart the clock. Watch any game tomorrow and you will see that when a penalty is called and the previous play left the clock running, they will keep the clock moving after the penalty.

    Maybe this is a sissy way of winning but trust me, when we have a 1 or 2 point lead and under 2 minutes to go and the other team has no time outs left, take a knee and keep taking penalties. I dont think there is anything I am missing on this but if there is, please correct me. If you are not sure, watch the games and you will see this. Remember Michigan almost taking the ball down the field against us in 2002. If someone is a guru with the rules and I am missing something, pls let me know but if not and I am correct, someone should tap the coaches on the shoulder and mention this to them. It could make the difference betw a win and a loss, and maybe a B10 championship or runner up, or even a NC or 2nd place and we all know, we have our share of those, I welcome some feedback on this.

    Im pretty sure there is a rule against using penalties in that way. You may get away with it once, but the refs will stop the clock if they feel it was intentional. Maybe ill try to find the rule...

    Fuckin' moron...the game clock doesn't start after a penalty for that exact reason. The play clock runs, but not the game clock.

    (edit: The "Fuckin' moron" wasn't directed at wdg01, who posted while I was typing...the fuckin' moron. :biggrin: )

    The only thing BN needs to become the perfect site for its current fan base is pictures of the OSU players that they can print out and color.

    Mili, the game clock does start again on an offensive penalty, such as a false start. See last years fiesta bowl or NC State's last play of the first half. I did find the rule that allows the officials to stop the clock in the senario originally posted

    Recalling stupid stories has always been a hobby of mine. Many moons ago when I was in High School I ran football "tickets" at school for my uncle's bookie. You know, the betting slips where you pick 3 teams vs. the spread to win $5.00 on a $1.00 bet, or 4 wins $10.00, etc on up the line.

    I actually had some dumbass hand me $20.00 one day. He played two separate tickets, betting $10.00 on each four team ticket. He said that he had figured out a way in that he was going to win $100.00 simply by picking his four teams on the one ticket, then picking the "other" four teams on the other. Unbelievable.

    Why are people compelled to bring stupidity over here? Are you trying to fill the void left by ekeen's absence?

    Good research! I've never seen (well, "noticed") that the game clock also ran after an offensive penalty while the offensive team is ahead. Keeping the game clock running makes sense when the offensive team is behind (so they can't use penalties as psuedo-timeouts). It just seems that the officials automatically impose the rule from the git-go in situations where the offensive team is ahead, simply to keep the offense from running out the clock that way.
