    This happened last week, but I just saw it, and I don't remember it being posted here. I did not know that in the rule books it's legal for a punter to kick/pass the ball to a player that's behind the LOS.

    Morehead state had 8 guys rushing the punter. Why not just throw a pass, rather than take a chance on a rugby kick being caught behind the line of scrimage?

    Did he actually catch it behind the line? Looked pretty close.

    Kind of odd to do that up 18 with 4 mins to go, but these guys are rivals.
