    Re: LSU onside kick ?

    It looked to me like he was following it too closely and when it took that quick hop he couldn't get out of the way and just instinctively put his hand up.

    The rule is actually that the ball simply must bounce twice before it goes ten yards.
    Confused now? lol
    I've often wondered who came up with the idea of an onside kick in the first place.

    Actually the onside kick wasn't too bad an idea. At that point, they didn't know they were kicking our tail.

    Les feels duty bound to try to fool us.

    I called the fake punt and fake field goal. I missed the on-side-kick...
    Glad Coach saban saw it coming...
    When I realized it was a fake, I started counting yards, and looking for flags...
    At first glance I thought the ball hit the kicker on the face guard.
    The failed fake attempt demoralized LSU instead of us.

    I think the batting of the ball might have been the design of the play. IMO, he was supposed to let the ball go the required ten yards then bat it back to the teammate that was trailing him for the recovery.

    Hairston (LSU kicker on the play) looked like he was going to cry over that play didn't he?
