    Onside Kick Question

    No, just as when Houston kicked their second onside kick and the kicker faked to one side and then kicked to the other side, a kicker can do that. It is not considered a false start.

    It helps that they suck even more than us right now.

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    I think we all agree it was a bad call. As Rocky Goode said, offsides is called when the other side has an unfair advantage. It is very clear no advantage was had by UT. Why the ref thought there was an unfair advantage? No idea. None of the replays show any advantage to UT as all players were...

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    Its pretty obvious the call was ridiculous. In the most critical phase of the game, the ref made a judgment call he normally never makes and evidence shows was very suapect. He took away UT's chance to tie, that is on him.

    Why did the cops ask Vol fan to sit down last night?

    The disturbing part is getting the police to tell the guy to sit down. They can only enforce law, not tell a guy to sit down. That is completely out of their authority, especially when most fans stand during the game. Why did the fan not talk to an usher about it? Probably did talk to an usher...

    Tennessee opens as 14.5 favorite against Vandy

    That's it? If the line doesn't end UT up by at least 20, then its a safe bet to at least cover. Vandy is terrible and UT will crush them.

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    Excellent post. Sums it up pretty well. My biggest problem is with the offsides call. Its never called, yet in the most crucial moment, they throw the flag because part of a helmet or hand is over the line? Absolutely ridiculous decision and cost UT the CHANCE to tie. That's all that matters is...

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    I have not seen any video evidence that the call was right. Especially when players go over the line on a regular kickoff and it is rarely called. The fact that it was such a critical call, with such little proof that he stepped over the line makes it unacceptable.

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    If the foot crosses the line, yep. Once the foot crosses the line, not touching mind you, then yes that is offsides on a kickoff. The helmet crosses all the time in kickoffs without any call being made. Its the only way to call it fairly since offsides is nearly never called unless the player...

    Besides that, the vols were still in contention before that play, afterwards, they were not.

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    You made the definite statement that it didn't decide the game. What if they score again and get the two point conversion. The reason it did decide the game was because it took away the last chance for UT to score. That by definition decides the game when the other team has no chance to win.

    How do you know it didn't decide the game. The vols get the ball back on the 40 with 2 time outs and 2 minutes left. Did you not watch the SC game?

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    That is exactly what I want them to call it for. When they step in the neutral zone, because that is the only time they call it during the regular kickoff. Its such a rare call on a kickoff anyway, so it should be clear evidence. That is the only way its fair: call it like you would during a...

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    Why is that? Its going to be discussed for a long time, just as any other controversial call. Especially one that decides the outcome of the game. Hopefully we have better refs next time who don't make bad calls.

    Offsides Penalty on 1st Onside Kick (Pic)

    The issue is with the offsides call itself. Noone was offsides. An official normally won't call offsides unless the guy steps over the line, not just when a piece of helmet crosses. That was the issue here: Noone crossed the line, except maybe JRM's facemask. That is unacceptable officiating in...
