    Take a knee (fake and throw) is what we should have done against Nebraska

    Line up to take a knee and then fake taking the knee and throw the tight end delay pass. Rarely ever used. Should have been used in the 4th quarter against NE. That was a once in a generation shot.

    It is not a legal play. Once the qb goes into the motion no other action can be done. Like calling for a fair catch.

    Interesting; I did not know that. Is that a college rule? IIRC, Marino and the Dolphins used that play 10 years or so ago to score a TD in the NFL. But I've never seen it used since.

    You can not fake taking a knee. Marino and other NFL QBs have fake the pass into the ground play, they have not faked taking a knee. I believe there is a college and NFL rule against a fake-knee play.

    If there is actually a rule about no "fake knee", I think that's stupid. Why even go out there then? They should just end the game. Only bad things can happen for the offense.

    One correction, If the KSU pass was completed, it would have tied the game with the extra point. Maybe would would have gone for two and got it, maybe we would have gone for two and failed, maybe we lose in OT. In short, no way that pass guarantees a win.

    You can still line up in the 'victory' formation. It is just that as soon as the QB starts the motion to drop to a knee the play is blown dead. As for the spiking rule, I think they did something similar a couple of years ago in the NFL. I remember a play when a QB tried the fake spike and throw and the refs blew it dead on accident. There was a big uproar and I thought the outcome was to add a rule that the play would always be blown dead to make it easier for the refs.

    No, what we "should" have done was complete the pass to Franklin. Duh.
