I’m going back and watching again. We were down 6, half our runs were wide receivers getting no yards after contact. 1st and 10, Allen sits back for 3 full seconds before pressure, rolls right, gets stuffed by linebacker. Second play, another wide receiver run, line pushes Tech back 3 yards, receiver gets flattened by linebacker. Third and seven, screen to running back near the sideline, thrown off target on offensive side of back, gets one hand on it and cant catch it. If he did catch it, all momentum was going out of bounds 1 yard past the line of scrimmage with a defender right there to push if necessary.
Tech moves the ball down, lots of missed tackles, defense gassed, Tech goes up 13. Now we run 4 straight plays, get a couple of first downs. Finally moving the ball. After a decent screen to the right side, we have a third and 2 at the 20 yard line. This is the one where we get “5 defenders in the backfield” penalty voiding a good run for first down. On third and seven we proceed to loft up a jump ball on the right side and it goes incomplete.
Going back to that penalty. We have only one receiver lined up on the right side and send him in motion. Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t you have to have both tackles covered? So even if one of the receivers moved up to the line on the left side, it still would have been a penalty right? How do you have a play in the book that will draw a flag 100% of the time?
