      None of this “wr made it look like he was attempting a route” grey area. It’s so inconsistently called (which is my primary reasoning) and it’s nearly indefensible. J

      To do that you would have to eliminate all crossing routes.

        Yeah and the ref in the middle of the field would need to go. I don’t mind them at all you can defend them. Sack the QB.

      I’d be in favor of the opposite: Make all picks, screens, etc. legal. Only rules would be like basketball…if you’re setting a pick, you can’t grab or hold, and you can’t move your feet.

      I think it would make the throw game that much more exciting, watching defenders switch and try to power through screens.

      If you can’t beat em, join em. I’d love it if Troy Taylor has plenty of picks plays in his aresenal.

      Funny, I’ve hated the opposition using them since TCU did it two or three times in the red zone.

      However, I sure wish our own UTES could have pulled off about one per game in each of our losses. Especially Cal, Colorado, and Oregon. Against Washington, I’d have settled for a block in the back call on that last TD.
