    Did Ferentz get caught cheating?

    After watching the imfamous "bad call" play, I personally think it was a designed play.

    They knew the defense wouldn't pick him up because of where he lined up and Ferentz was hoping the refs wouldn't catch it or call it. He pauses after he relizes nobody picked him up and then ran right to the opposite corner of the end zone where Tate was looking for him.

    Anyone else think this?

    I don't know if I agree with that or not, but it's certainly an interesting idea to consider. Either way, he was playing the fool if he thought he was going to get away with that with a Pac-10 crew on the field. The Oklahoma-Oregon debacle aside, the Pac-10 has outstanding referee crews that really know every little detail in the rulebook. They know their game, and they demonstrated that this afternoon.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Did Ferentz get caught cheating?

    No. That play is designed to fool the defense into thinking that the TE is staying in to block. The TE pretends to block for a second as all of the action moves across the field. Then the TE sneaks to the other side.

    Teams run this play all of the time in the red-zone including every team in the NFL. My guess is Chandler lined up just a hair too close the the line of scrimmage. If that is the exact way Iowa has been running it since Ferentz got there, it should be a penalty every time.

    Wrong! This is Ferentz, not Hayden Fry. Chandler just lined up too close to the LOS

    What he said. Chandler messed up. Ferentz is a class act.

    I agree, say what you want about the hawks, but Ferentz does it the right way. And any time a flag gets thrown, somebody got caught cheating.

    I wish we could get caught cheating in the ALAMO BOWL, just once.

    I think Ferentz shot Kennedy from the grassy knoll.

    I don't know if Ferentz was old enough to be the second shooter, but I have a good feeling Hayden Fry was involved....

    Re: Did Ferentz get caught cheating?

    No if Hayden Fry were involved the refs would have seen it. Then several Hawkeye fans would claim that the refs blew the Hayden Fry on the grassy nole call. Then they would have realized that Hayden Fry and Lee Harvey were both Marines and Drew Tate was probably there as well.
