For several years now, if the offense makes personnel changes, the defense is given time to make changes, also. I have seen this in many “hurry up” offenses, but not necessarily noticed it when not in the hurry up.
Today, with 12 or 13 seconds to play, Texas changed their offense from regular to field goal kicking within about 7 seconds and kicked the winning field goal. No chance for the defense to make changes. WTF ? ? ? ? ? Was this just another in the LONG list of benefits whorns get for being whornes ? ? ? ? ?
In college, the penalty for defensive pass interference is 15 yards if the foul happened more than that distance downfield. If it happened closer to the line of scrimmage, the ball goes to the spot of the foul. So in college, if a receiver gets hauled down while trying to catch a deep ball 50 yards downfield, the offense doesn’t get those 50 yards. It gets 15.
NFL rule is way more offense friendly which make life as NFL DB so challenging.
