I can't wait to see Lovett used in this fashion. If you've got talented passers who can also either run or catch, putting two of them on the field at once puts tremendous strain on a defense. I think you'll see this more often. Imagine Alabama lining up with Tua and Jalen on the field at once.

I agree about all those potential pass interference penalties. The refs seemed to think that, as long as the cornerback was not still staring at the wide receiver, anything goes. Several times Lovett underthrew an open receiver, who slowed down and had the corner run into him. But presumably because the corner was not looking at the receiver, no penalty was called.

I'm not sure that I agree with that interpretation of the rule. Generally, the covering corners were not in the process of trying to catch the ball, they were still running down the field and ran directly (without looking) into the receiver. I think that's pass interference.

I was under the impression the cornerback only gets a free pass if he's tracking the ball with his eyes or attempting to catch it.

In other words, if you're attempting to catch the ball, you're in a "jump ball" situation and anything goes. But if you're running stride for stride with the receiver, he stops and you run into him (whether looking at him or not), that's pass interference.
