    Watch the replay of BSU's OT touchdown (it starts about 1:25 or so). Not being a whiner at all, because I was pulling for Boise, but isn't Zabranski illegally in motion here because he's obviously going forward when the ball is snapped?

    I'm not a fan of either team. But when you consider the bogus pass-interference calls against Boise State, I suppose it evened out.

    you might be on to something there.. though it certainly wasn't blatant, like Arena-league style. He does seem to be moving a half step forward at the snap.

    Who was the old guy they kept showing in the skybox?

    I don't remember the guy's name, but they called him the "father of Boise State football." Apparently, he coached the team for years.

    I thought the same thing when it happened; I kept waiting for the penalty flag to appear on the FOX scoreline at the top.

    I will say this: I have never seen a team bite like that on a hand-fake (it wasn't even a ball-fake, since he wasn't holding the ball in his hand), nor have I ever seen a behind the back handoff like that.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I do have to say that was one of the greatest college games I have ever watched. had a little bit of everything. However, the commentator forever ruined the big dog/little dog analogy for me by talking about it every five minutes. Not that it was a favourite analogy to begin with.

    That step forward in the shotgun has got to be illegal, but I never saw it called in any game, pro or college, this year. Everybody does it these days.

    And I only saw it once, but the fourth-down TD with the WR throwing the pass looked fishy to me. He comes in motion and barely comes set in the backfield before the QB goes out in motion himself. Again, there's a lot of shifting these days that doesn't meet the letter of the rules as I understand them.

    Bottom of the screen, QB in motion definitely turns upfield before the ball is snapped.

    Yeah, he did. In hindsight, I'm glad they missed the call there.
