SEC clarifies Iron Bowl confusion
AL.com

quote:

The SEC explained the end of the half in great detail, and I’m sharing the entire email now with readers in the interest of clarity:

"At the end of the 1st half in the Alabama vs Auburn game, during a play that resulted in a first down inbounds, the game clock went to 0:00. Replay stopped the game to review the clock. The decision from the Instant Replay Official was that video evidence showed there was 1 second on the clock when the player was down so the clock operator was instructed to put 1 second back on the game clock. The referee came back out to the line of scrimmage and informed both teams that the clock would start on the ready for play. The referee got back in position and blew his whistle and wound the clock. The snap was off before the clock went to 0:00. The play was officiated consistent with Rule 12-3-6-d, which states:

Rule 12, Article 3, Section 6
d. Clock adjustment at the end of any quarter.
If the game clock expires at the end of any quarter, either during a down in which it should be stopped by rule through play when the ball becomes dead or after the down upon a request for an available team timeout, the replay official may restore time only under these conditions:

The replay official has indisputable video evidence that time should have remained on the game clock when the ball became dead or when the team timeout was granted;

In the second and fourth quarters only, the team to which the ball would belong after it becomes dead would next put the ball in play from scrimmage (not the try);

In the fourth quarter only, either the score is tied or the team that will next snap the ball is behind by eight points or fewer; and

The replay official’s video evidence includes the timeout signal by an official in the case where the game clock should have stopped for a requested team timeout."

Auburn had time at the end of the first half due to the replay. As for the end of the game, Alabama just got caught with too many players on the field.

They should have started the clock immediately after the announcement. It is what it is and I’m not gonna dwell on it. I do think they should add a runoff for those types of situations though

re: SEC clarifies Iron Bowl confusion
The only people saying they got the call wrong are idiots. The issue wasn't how the review was handled, it was that the existence of the review afforded AU an opportunity they wouldn't have gotten if the play had been called correctly on the field.

Bama had much bigger problems than that one play though. Congrats to AU on the win. Showed a ton of grit and toughness that I wish bama had.

Need to modify the replay review rules.

It is impossible to hike the ball in normal circumstances with 1 second left after a first down.

Impossible.

Since we are posting rules

b. No simulated replacements or substitutions may be used to confuse opponents. No tactic associated with substitutes or the substitution process may be used to confuse opponents (Rule 3-5-2-e) (A.R. 9-2-2-I-V).

I thought the clocked didn't stop until the referee's whistle, not when the player was actually down.

re: SEC clarifies Iron Bowl confusion
It was the correct call, it can bite you in the arse in end if game too as requires 10 second runoff if no time out

Gus dang told y’all after the game he was trying to motion the punter back to kick the dang punt (which you could see happening as the flag was thrown)

Not his fault your entire sideline lost its collective mind in confusion because of some high school mickey mouse nonsense

If offense doesn’t pause for 1 second after ball is ready, it’s a false start. If you snap at 0 on clock, it’s not a play. SEC explanation sounds like arse covering.

Is this standard protocol? Im pretty sure after any review or official time out the clock does not run until the referee indicates to run the clock.

I do agree with this, the NFL has done it

in real time yes.

When a play is reviewed the clock is usually set to the time that the player went down, so seeing as it was reviewed the clock was set to when the player was down

So, the wildcat formation where the qb lines up as a receiver is illegal according to this rule

The Replay should have never occurred because even if a second had remained the field goal team could have never made it on the field in time to make the kick! The refs ran interference using the Replay, even if it was not intentional.
