A football is not a basketball. Based on its shape, it can bounce in unexpected directions without any human interaction.

I didn’t see it touch him either.  I am wondering why our defenders weren’t more aggressive in going after the ball - William and Mary can’t touch the ball until it goes 10 yards, but our defenders can.  Maybe they thought it wouldn’t go 10 yards?  Coach Gattuso said they were playing smart but i don’t understand.

Here is the video in question:


It does not touch the W&M player. The corner of the ball hits the turf (by virtue of it being prolate spheroid), hence the change of direction. Slow the YouTube video down to .25. If the players foot or leg hit the ball at the speed it was moving, that ball would have ricocheted wildly to the top of the screen.

10000000000% good call by the refs. They jumped on it just after it went 10 yards and like 4 inches. Like I said, text book recovery by W&M.

Thanks Eli.  The replay on the broadcast had a field level replay that was taken from the sidelines in the bottom left of your video that clearly shows he did not touch it and it wasn't even that close from that angle.  Doesn't matter really.  As I've said, our guys should've been all over that ball BEFORE 10 yards.  I feel like they didn't know the receiving team can touch it before 10 yards.

The only thing I could think off is that they didn't think it would go 10 yards. They should have attacked the ball and not sit back.

Four things that are facts:

1. The ball went 10 yards

2. The kicking team did not touch it until 10.3-10.5 yards; WOW...that's bang, bang and frankly, kudos.

3. Would have been very hard for our guys to go aggressively at it...but I can see why people would think so.  I mean, that was truly unreal.

4. Nah...I will leave this one alone...but some posters can use their imagination on what I would have written.

100% bang bang. Their one guy did a good job of 'boxing out' (by placing himself between us and the ball) as well preventing us from getting it.

They played that one perfectly and deserve a hats off.

I watch the Onside Kick unfold in front of me and I thought "Why is no one from UAlbany jumping on the ball?".  After we won, I thought "teachable moment" .
