The Big 12 considers this an INCOMPLETE PASS
2 Responses to “THIS IS A FUMBLE”
The play is not a fumble. The ball was pushed forward (not backwards or sideways), therefore it is by definition an attempted pass. It is the identical play that WVU ran multiple times in the Orange Bowl and that Holgorsen admitted he got from the Colorado School of Mines. While Oklahoma’s execution was terrible, there is absolutely no basis to rule a ball that moves foward from the QB to an eligible “receiver” a fumble.
That is the entire purpose of this play- if something goes wrong, it’s an incomplete pass. If that wasn’t the case, the QB would simply hand the ball off to the guy that’s one foot in front of him. Why do you think these play go in the stat books as passes/receptions? They’re passes. Check the rules, champ.
