It would have been a game changer for either team. If the whistle wouldn't have blown the Rummel would have likely recovered the the kick. People can talk all they want about momentum and all that, but Rummel dominated. Aug's only scores (outside of garbage time) were a 60 yd td by Fournette and about a 15 yard drive for a td after a fumble on a kickoff by Rummel. The onside kick is being blown way out of proportion. Whistle from stands Whistle from stands 2 2nd paragraph
Also, I saw the side line referee on the St. Aug side still running to his position for the kick off after Rummel had kicked the ball. Maybe a ref did blow the whistle bc of the one out of position. Just bc the refs say they didn't blow it doesn't mean they didn't.
Oh yeah... and this is all moot.
