    Fake Punt

    Was that supposed to be a fake punt - or a botched play? Kind of missed the play and saw VDK running down the sideline. Huge play.

    Re: Fake Punt

    That one was planned all the way. Great gutsy call there.

    Call in show at first wasn't convinced it was a called fake punt. Looked like VDK knew the punt was going to be blocked and saw a lot of daylight to his left.

    Re: Fake Punt

    If he would have tried to kick it, it would have been blocked anyways. Gutsy call.

    Re: Fake Punt

    It looked like a really well executed fake. The O-line let the Tech special teams run right past & Mahoney waited the perfect amount of time before taking off with the ball. Kinda like Top Gun.

    Re: Fake Punt

    Tech's entire punt team peeled off the first return attempt so I wouldn't be shocked if that was called.

    Re: Fake Punt

    I'm with you guys that thought it was a real kick "turned fake" because of the pressure. Last i saw a called fake punt, VDK took off at the same time his front 3 took off with him. Well, they were fighting off blockers and never pulled away to protect him.

    Re: Fake Punt

    I thought it was a real punt play? The same thing happened with Nebraska. If the punter sees them crashing hard to one side, it leaves the sideline open to run. I love CPR, but I don't think anyone is ballsy enough to call a planned fake at that point in the game, against that team, on that part of the field. He probably just told Kirby to keep an eye on it and if he had the chance to, tuck it and run.

    Re: Fake Punt

    It sure looked to me like someone broke free off the end and he pulled it down and ran to avoid the block.
