"That's on us as coaches. We'll go back, watch the film, and do better this week in practice. That's on me. But we're real close. We're almost there."

why do you want something that is legal to be called a violation?

Because I don't agree it should be legal.

then what you really want is a rule change. Surely you do not want refs calling violations on things that are legal.

In football there is a hold on every single play that goes uncalled. Per the rules, it should be called 99% or more of plays. I'm not not advocating it should be called every play, only that the officials be consistent. With the eurostep, it is a legal move, but officials will call traveling on occasion, if they are or are not to call it a violation, I only hope that they are consistent.

Yes, I would like a rules change and said as much in my initial post.
This where I'm at. I understand under the rules, as they are written, it's a legal move but would like for it to be called traveling 100% of the time. As long as the officiating crew is consistent with their calls it's not the end of the world. I do wish they'd get rid of it though.

There isn't a "we" on the field unless there are fans in the stands. The fans are an intricate part of the team/program as the players. We disagree with you.

Receivers who spend so much time trying to hand fight and seal off the defender when going for a deep ball that they don't run far or fast enough to catch it. 

Runners and receivers who try to make moves that aren't necessary and actually cost the team first downs or yardage.  One of Oklahoma's receivers yesterday stopped and tried to cut to his left in an attempt to score the TD himself.  He was tackled around the 12-15 yard line.  If he had just kept running he probably would have made it to the 5 or maybe inside it.  OU scored anyway, but it could have been costly.

Coaches who outsmart themselves by getting cute on kickoffs.  Exhibit A, Lincoln Riley.  Up 31-14 with six seconds to go in the half, he tries to squib it.  Georgia gets the ball at midfield and kicks a field goal.  Not only did he give Georgia some momentum going into halftime, but...what was the score at the end of regulation, coach?  Do you wish you hadn't given Georgia those three points?

"WE" agree with this post.

I was born a Razorback, have lived as a Razorback, and will die a Razorback.  I spend money on the program, gear, and travel.  The Razorbacks are as much a part of my history and family as...well...I am.  My kids learned to call the hogs before they could say Momma or Dadda.  We cheer for the Hogs...and when the Hogs win "we" scream, "we won."  When we lose, I tearfully say, "we lost."

WE are Razorbacks.

Too many tear-jerking stories. Sometimes it seems as if ESPN confuses red-blooded American males for estrogen-oozing women looking for a reason to cry.

Those stories are meant for the fanatics and diehards, they are meant for casual watchers who need a reason to watch and a rooting interest. Duh

Going way out on a limb here, but I predict by next Monday night every college football fan will consider being reminded Kirby Smart was once Saban's DC a pet peeve.

11:00 a.m. Saturday football games

Thursday night football games. (except Thanksgiving)

Tuesday night football games.

Friday night college football games.

ESPN and other networks controlling the time of football games.  Who wants a homecoming game at 11:00 a.m.? 
I know the money is tremendous, but I wish universities would tell ESPN when it can broadcast their games, and not
the other way around.

Night games in December in Chicago, Cleveland, Boston and other cold weather venues.  However, it is fun to watch football
when you can't see the line markers when the field is covered with snow.

Anthracite jerseys.

World Series games in November.

Announcers who feel the need to say “indipustable video evidence” every time a play is being reviewed.
