    Isn`t 0:12 an illegal block? WTF... that play should come back. Meaning: THEY LOSE! THEY GET NOTHING!

    Oh, and on second watch, his "toss" was completely by accident. It was a potential fumble. He`s lucky his teammate caught it.

    No, the block at 0:12 is completely legal.Hit the defender in the front.

    It was more from the side. Also: roughing the kicker.

    Roughing the kicker? No way. It was a good play.

    What do you mean that isn`t roughing the kicker? The defender missed the block and hit the kicker (i.e., tackling him). That`s roughing the kicker.

    @TruTenrMan seriously? when you`re falling with the ball you hold it to your body, you dont flail your arms about and `accidently` throw the ball. He threw it back in hopes a teammate would catch it. stop trollin

    Okay guys. Just a small lesson for you who don`t think that was roughing the kicker.

    If the defense TOUCHES THE KICKER IN ANY WAY causing him to FALL while in the motion on KICKING THE BALL and the ball has LEFT HIS FOOT without being blocked, THAT is ROUGHING THE KICKER.

    That being said, the refs did not call it, so it`s a moot point. Missed call, TD.

    @Revolutioniz

    I watched it a few more times, and I`ll give him the "toss it away" instead of fumbling.

    That definitely WAS roughing the kicker though; even if it was unintentional, it was still a foul. You don`t touch the kicker. Ever.

    @auburnjunky

    This is NCAA, doesn`t the coach had a review option (assuming he hadn`t already used it). I`m not sure if it matters if the clock had stopped on the play.

    NCAA automatically reviews every play. The rule though, is, if the next play gets off before they officially review it, then they have to begin to review the next play.

    Roughing the kicker is a non reviewable penalty though. Much like pass interference, it is referee`s judgement.

    To answer you trutenrman, The coach cannot challenge a non reviewable play.

    He didn`t rough him. The player was sliding on the ground. He got knocked down before he was going after the kicker and slid into him because of another player. The other guy fell to the kickers right and never touched him.

    "He got knocked down before he was going after the kicker and slid into him because of another player."

    That`s roughing the kicker all day. It could be interpreted as "running into the kicker" which is only a 5 yard penalty, and re-kick. Make no mistake though, the TD shouldn`t count.

    Just found out, this is NAIA not NCAA. Rules might be different. I don`t know enough about NAIA to make a call. It might be a penalty that is assessed at the end of the run in that league, and since he scored, it would be assessed on the PAT.

    I`ve always wondered why you don`t see more of this in American Football. It`s perfectly legal, and so many times I`ve seen someone go down with a whole slew of teammates wide open to receive a lateral pass to keep the play going.

    Because in professional football, they know a fumble as a result of catching your offensive blockers off guard with a lateral pass is too great a risk for the extra 10 yards he may or may not pick up.

    Better off designing the play so the initial receiver/running back just gets 10 more yards on his own.

    "dumb "sport""

    Was listening to a local ESPN radio debate the other day. The debate started off with Baseball`s declining television ratings, but eventually got into the heavy stuff.

    The question was "Why are fewer people(americans) tuning in for baseball, and for that matter, Boxing and Soccer?" At the end the commentator`s, who were all 40+ Baseball and boxing aficionado`s decided it was very likely because "Basketball, Football, and MMA and just the more intelligent, strategic, and exciting sports."

    There determination was, if you grew up watching/playing soccer, boxing, or baseball, you appreciated what those sports are, and you are likely to maintain a certain bond to the sport no matter what new sports emerged.

    But if you grew up watching/playing Football, Basketball, or MMA, it was clear you`d never have any interest in the three older sports (As american`s have shown with soccer since we had baseball, football, and basketball before we had any real soccer teams).

    They`re right as far as I can tell. I can assure you, most americans recognize just how utterly boring soccer is thanks to having sports, with plainly, more scoring on the scoreboard. I don`t disrespect soccer as a sport, there is no doubt the people playing it are athletes, that said, I can easily see a mentally handicapped person being a successful soccer star provided his parents started him early on the physical conditioning required to compete.

    That isn`t a knock. That`s a great thing for that guy, but mentally challenging for the viewer it is not. Much the same way Boxing just isn`t nearly as strategic as MMA, Soccer and Baseball simply aren`t as complicated as Basketball and Football.

    Damn, that was a huge block at :12. Probably would`ve gotten a penalty in the NFL.
