This is in a High School championship game, and I guess when You are in High School you take the win, but is'nt this kinda Bush League?

Boss, I'm all for trick plays! Heck all plays have deception in reality. I've never seen one that goes to this extreme however. I love a good "fumble-ruskie" but this is the first "deadman" that I've ever seen or heard of. I saw Rodney Peete and USC fake taking a knee and then looking deep against UCLA. It may be seen as a bit "bush", but it's no more so then "icing a kicker" with a last moment TO even having the kicker actually kick. To me that is "bush", other call it gamesmanship.

once those O linemen are set they cant move right..... so why didnt the D React when the ball snapped? Lack of Discipline in those kids huh

Hey whatever works to get a win. If the ref did not see anything wrong with it, it is okay by me.
