    Re: The Old "Water Bucket" Play: Still Legal?

    While Manning was at UCheat, didn't he and other members of the Offense go to the sideline to supposedly talk with coaches and then take the snap from the sideline?

    Would have been difficult with the ball sitting at the hash mark.

    Didn't A&M run a gimmicky play against us? Still think their OL wasn't set when the ball was snapped.
    yep, and they were not set. thats a big problem with the hurry up/no huddle/prairie dog offenses, many times they don't set. i first noticed it a lot when urban first got to florida.

    Re: The Old "Water Bucket" Play: Still Legal?

    Don't remember who we were playing or which coach, (Maybe Stallings) but Bama had a man trying to hurry off the field and he stopped short of going off and the QB threw him the ball but Bama got a penalty for 12 men being on the field. I remember the announcers saying that Bama only had 11 men on the field but the play fooled the refs. They should have alerted the refs to what they were doing and the play would have worked.

    The Old "Water Bucket" Play: Still Legal?

    I went back and watched the first drive from the *U game. It was a bit difficult to tell for sure because the camera cuts to wide stadium and sideline shots but it did appear that during the first several plays Cooper was wide left and Norwood was wide right. Neither of them appeared to reenter the area between the hash marks between plays while we ran the hurry up. Looks like that rule is not enforced during a no huddle offense.

    The rule may not be enforced because there are no substitutions in a hurry up offense.

    Back in the 80's the "Water Bucket" play was a popular trick play. A wide receiver would trot to the sideline, as if he were coming out of the game, but instead he'd stop at the very edge of the playing field on sides. When the play was snapped he'd generally be wide open streaking down the sideline.

    I haven't seen this tried at any level in the last few years. I assume it wouldn't work beyond the high school level (where I saw it used) anyway now days, but I was wondering if this play is still legal?
    Houston Nutt did it against us at Arkansas one year. Didn't work.

    Rule doesn't just apply to substitutions. It also applies to players participating in the previous play. Rule says they have to have been in the area between the hash marks at some point between the end of the previous play and the next snap. That simply isn't happening with the wide outs when they run the no huddle offense.
