...onto the Internet.

I've been meaning to post this for a while, but our JV team made teh Interwebz when the running back of the opposing team failed. This happened last year, apparently. I was not aware of it until this year, when I saw the video, and it wasn't until last month that I learned that it was our team that was on defense.

No, the band does not attend JV games, so I didn't see this live.

Some of those guys looked a little big to be on JV.

Look again. They're relatively skinny and only slightly above average in height.

Wow.... That was kinda funny and kinda sad. I know they're only JV, but damn... Your school is awesome. ;)
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

That really shouldn't have been a touchdown, I mean seriously, his forward progress was wayyyy done.

except for the fact that he THREW the ball up LOL

and he had ran backwards in the first place... it's hard to tell when he stopped TRYING to go backwards LOL....

If YOU run backwards you don't get forward progress... and if you throw the ball up in the air... it's a Fumble... or at best an incomplete pass.

what a dummy.

and he threw it backwards (and not to anyone either)... so the ball's still indisputably live either way.

what a dummy :)

I think he was trying to make it an incomplete pass (which would have resulted in no loss of yards), but failed as our team steamrolled over him.

Actually that kinda brings up-- is it possible to get an incomplete pass throwing underhand, or would it be ruled a fumble even if the ball went to what was actually forward? Odd scenario.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

i'd say a pitch forward past the LO Scrimmage is a pass.

I'm pretty sure the "pass" this kid threw was backwards though (and CLEARLY behind the LOS :) so... I'd think it ought to be a fumble.... like any other missed pitch.

just looked it up somewhere:
"Answer: A forward pass, is a forward pass, is a forward pass. It can be thrown overhand, underhand, one-handed, two-handed or between your legs. The direction it travels is the only deciding factor as to whether it's forward or backward. "

presumably that means the LOS is incapable of affecting whether it is a fumble.

It was definitely a fumble officially. It was ruled as such.

I don't think there is any rule that missed passes have to cross the line of scrimmage. Wikipedia certainly doesn't say there is (http://en.wikipedia.org...) and I've seen our varsity qb intentionally down the ball in front of the los before and it was still ruled a incomplete pass.
