This won’t go away. But since I wrote a lot about this already, why not one more post.
Now LSU coach Les Miles was asked about it in today’s news conference in Baton Rouge. Here’s what he said.
I did not spend the time on this issue because it was a 73 yard punt and we got what we wanted out of it in reality. The difference between 73 and 85 may have not been significant. He hit it well. That piece of equipment must be behind the play.
“It absolutely has to. You can look at it and determine the ball went under the wire or over the wire, but it shouldn’t be near the wire. The determination of whether it did or didn’t is not really the issue. The issue is where should the equipment be stationed. Put it behind the punter and behind the ball so that you can play. To me, if they continue to operate the piece of equipment like that, than that would be a mistake. It should always be behind the ball. It is too easy. Chase the ball and you get all the views that you need, but start it behind the play.”
Now you have three sides to this story. Hope this helps.
