Good job by both schools. Auburn did not seem to promote the BBFD as much this year as they have in the past. I only heard one announcement about it in JHS, and that was during the Georgia game.
Granted, the previous two weeks had been road games, but still, nothing on the official AU Facebook ...

Our local school system has the policy that if a kid fails a test, he/she gets to retake it. It is to the point now that some kids are intentionally bombing the test the first go around, then study what they know is on it to get a super high grade. So you make a 40 on the first one, make a 100 on ...

I believe that it is true that illegal contact/defensive holding has to occur before the pass is in the air.
If you watched the Broncos/Chiefs game Sunday night, there were several defensive holding calls, but the referee made it a point to say "prior to the pass."
At one time the NFL did not ...
