    Option question

    On an option play, if the qb goes for 4 yards before pitching it, and the rb gets 3 after the pitch, do they split the credit for the yardage, or does the pitch negate any stats for the qb?

    I think the yardage is given to the RB if it is pitched but I have been wrong before,

    Re: Option question

    The RB would get the yards because the pitch is made behind the LOS. Only yards gained from the LOS are counted...you wouldn't give a RB credit for a 10 yard run with a LOS on the 6 just because he took it from 4 yards deep in the backfield, why give them credit for taking an option pitch 1-2 yards behind the LOS.

    Let me clarify. Qb gains 4 yards past LOS. Late pitch, rb picks up 3 more. Does qb get his 4?


    Note:Didnt really think i had to clarify, but you missed the part in the OP where i mentioned qb goes for 4.

    By rule, the yardage should be split:

    QB gets a rush from the LOS forward to the point where the pitch occurred.
    RB gets no rush, but does get rushing yards from the pitch point to the end of the play.

    It's similar to the hook and lateral.

    Not split. Yards go to whomever ends with the ball.

    If you play NCAA Football video games you would know this!
    If the running back gets the ball, he gets all the yards. Doesn't matter how long the QB carried the ball. Whoever ends up with the ball gets the yards.

    If this is correct then in theory it would be possible to have 1 yard rushing, but an infinite yards per carry average.

    The last football game i bought was ncaa 97 or 98 for sega genesis. I still play tecmo super bowl over all other games.

    The CF intellectuals are. Leaning towards rb gets all, but i still not 100%.

    Re: Option question

    Article 5. On a basic run-option play when the quarterback rolls
    out for an obvious option run and pitches to a trailing back within a
    yard of either side of the line of scrimmage, credit the trailing back
    with a rush attempt and total yardage gained or lost, regardless of
    where he obtains the pitch. All gains are measured from the line of
    scrimmage. Exception: See Section 2, Article 8.

    Clarification: The basic run-option play is distinguished from a play
    when the quarterback keeps the ball past the line of scrimmage,
    beyond the one-yard cushion, and pitches to a trailing back. In this
    play, credit the quarterback with a rush attempt plus yardage to the
    point from where he pitched the ball. Credit the trailing back with
    no rush attempt, but yardage from the point of the pitch and any
    touchdown on the play.

    A.R. 1. Team A’s ball on Team B’s 30. Quarterback Adams, on
    a run-option play, goes down the line of scrimmage and pitches
    to running back Allen, who receives the ball on the 29 and advances
    to the 20. In this case, credit Allen with the rush attempt
    and 10 yards rushing.

    A.R. 2. Team A’s ball on Team B’s 30. Quarterback Adams, on
    a run-option play, goes down the line of scrimmage and then
    turns upfield and runs to the 20, where he pitches back to Allen,
    who scores on the play. Credit Adams with a rush attempt and
    with a rush of 10 yards. Credit Allen with no rush attempt, 20
    rushing yards and a touchdown.
