I know if you spent Saturday with me or follow me on twitter then you are tired of hearing me harp on the Njoku blocking below the waist call. The ball was spotted at the 38, Njoku hit him at the 43 and knocked him backward to the 43.5. The TV color man spotted the excellent block right away.   Njoku landed at the 44.njoku block.png

OK, so someone explain to me how Njoku's block vs ETSU is any different than Vinny Miller's block vs USuCk in 2015:

I am not an expert on this subject but I think the rules have changed.  Our coach talked about it on his last show how it is tougher on the A backs to black because of the rule changes.  Hopefully someone more knowable will explain it.

The NCAA is chipping away at the triple option with the long term goal of killing it.

The rule that is about 2 years old is that you can't block below the waste further than 5 yards down the field. Paul Johnson was a very strong advocate against this rule arguing that we allow defenders to tackle the ball carrier below the waste but the defenders can't be blocked below the waste.

Has there been any explanation for why the pass to Njoku in the endzone wasn’t reviewed?
