This^^^ look how far he backed - bad call.Look at the players on the M sideline smiling like they pulled a coup
Why not celebrate? He did his job, drew a correct call, and it extended a drive to go up by 2 scores. I was equally happy about as they were.

It's a puss move. That's the only downfall for Michigan.
I wouldn't call that a downside, just like I don't see a downside for football teams adopting the forward pass, having their QBs slide feet first or having their star players run out of bounds after the 1st down marker but before contact. 
You just don't like it - that it was the right call or that teams would ever strategize to get their opponent to make that mistake. But you not liking it doesn't mean there're actually consequences for teams that do this. Zero-point-zero of Michigan's problems are that they have a soft culture.

many different examples of players trying to draw penalties on the opponent

some could be cornsidered puss moves, but all could be cornsidered to take advantage of stupid mistakes by the opponent

not that all the particular opponents are stupid

For sure. I was just caring to distinguish this as separate from a flop. Both draw the call. But this one involved the player doing his job the whole time. Flops involve a player ceasing to play in order to go on stage to act.

It's a bad call/rule I don't blame them for grinning the call wasn't right or had an adverse effect on the play was 847's point

It'd be more productive to discuss whether the rule should be this way. But, since it is, (1) the ref's call was exactly by the letter of the law and (2) the long snapper did everything right, up to and including just playing, not flopping.

I don't like the rule.  It's a puss rule

but, if yer gonna have a puss rule on the book, it certainly may get called if the opponent isn't aware and smart enough to avoid the penalty

Exploiting rules... yeah.



Does Michigan get this BS call a lot, or is only against Wisconsin, in Ann Arbor?
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!
