…unless both teams cheat, and then somebody has to win.

Evidently…that’s exactly what happened.

ACC officials reviewed two plays from the Clemson v. Georgia Tech game last Thursday and ultimately declared that both plays were bogus. Both plays involved some substitution “trickeration” – Georgia Tech’s resulted in a touchdown on a fake field goal and Clemson’s resulted in a big gain into the red zone which led to the TD that tied the game.

According to NCAA rule 9-2-2-b: “No simulated replacements or substitutions may be used to confuse opponents. No tactic associated with substitutes or the substitution process may be used to confuse opponents.”

In layman’s terms, you can’t go hide out next to the sideline and then take off like a rocket when the ball is snapped, and that is exactly what both teams did…

    If the officials didn't see it, then there was no violation. They are infallable aren't they?
