Apropos the discussion about rule interpretation, NCAA issued a memo immediately to modify how to apply sliding by QB:

I guess they either aren't terribly concerned about the replay confusion, or cannot reach consensus about what to do.

Or Ivy League Football matters too little to the NCAA for them to bother. Or they think the League "took care" of it.

Either way, I have not seen an explanation as to why the application in the Ivy case of the plain language of the rule about replay allowing decisions with significant impact on the outcome to be altered is wrong.

I would make a wager with anyone, that if you contacted a NCAA football rules expert like Dean Blandino or Mike Pereira, that they would say that in the H-P situation, that replay should not have awarded a timeout to P. I’m talking about an actual rules expert like these guys, not an attorney’s interpretation.

Its the explanation, not its source, that I am interested in.

In 1965, Dartmouth and Cornell tried some... let's call them innovative ways to stop Princeton kicker Charlie Gogolak.

The NCAA put a stop to such tactics at the end of the season. I suspect that if information traveled faster in those days, the NCAA would have acted more quickly.
