At the conclusion of the game with Kansas, Number 93 of the Jayhawks runs into Lucy well after the field goal attempt. This would draw a roughing the kicker foul. Since this is on the last play of the game, and since on both the college and pros, no game can end on a defensive penalty, the offensive team have been given an extra down.The rule states that the down would occur even if there is no time left on the clock. The play would have resulted in a 15 yard penalty. The ball is on the 17 yard line. The penalty will be half the distance and placed at the 8 1/2 yard line. Also keep in mind when the Texas State kicker kicked the defensive player in the nuts, that could have been unsportsmanlike conduct penalty/15 yards and possible ejection. See more »
This is an absolutely hilarious movie that I would recommend to
anyone. True, it has the same basic plot as every other sports movie that has come out in the last 20 years (group of ragtags come together to form a team to defeat a bigger, more evil team, etc.), but there such high energy in all the performances, and the dialogue is so brimming with hilarity that it doesn't matter. How many "comedies" have come out recently that contain only a few jokes, each of them surrounded by tons of boring and meaningless plot development that don't add up to anything. For anyone tired of this, I highly urge you to take a look at this highly underrated film filled with dialogue that is refreshingly funny all the way through. Movies like this are what great comedy is all about.
