A 1-point safety?

Did anyone see that during the Texas/Texas A&M game just now? Texas missed an extra point on a botched snap, the kicker basically kicked the ball and it skidded across the ground into the endzone, A&M fell onto it in the endzone and they called it a "1-point safety", allowing Texas to tie the game, bizarre...

How much money is Mack Brown paying these Big XII refs? First the Kansas "pass interference," now this.

Horseshit.

I've never heard of such a thing in 50 years of watching football. But if it was a 1 point safety, it appears they gave the wrong team the point.

How did Texas tie the game when A&M scored the 1 point safety?

I still don't understand it... I guess some official tried to explain it to Lynn Swann on the sidelines but I still don't get it.... even the announcers don't understand it and Bob Griese's been doing this stuff for a long time.

Texas blocked a punt and returned it to make it 13-12 in aTM's favor. They then missed the extra point due to a bad hold, and it skidded along the ground through the legs of the linemen. It went into the end zone (how is it still a live ball at that point?) and TAMU fell on it.

Result? A one-point safety against TAMU, 13-all.

They must have considered the muffed kick as more of a blocked kick, which is returnable for 2 the other way in college. An A&M defender picked it up to advance it and fumbled it back into the endzone. When an A&M player fell on it and was down in the endzone, it was a safety. Since it was an extra point attempt, Texas is only awarded 1 point.

I've seen it called several years ago, but obviously it rarely happens.

Must have something to do with the fact that in college a team defending against a conversion can get two points for returning it the other way.

That must have been a corollary to that rule change.

There have been some wild plays due to that rule.

Soon after changing the rule, Nebraska and Colorado had a tie when one of the teams scored by returning a conversion attempt.

There also was a game in the Southern Conference recently where a team scored in the last minute to take a 1-point lead. Coach decided to go for two in hopes that a three-point lead would be insurance against losing to a last second FG.

Conversion attempt was returned all of the way and the team ended up losing by one.

Then I propose this one:

How's about 4 points for FGs over 50 yards?

Yes, exactly. This is part of the rule change that allows the defense to return a PAT for 2 points.

The reason it was ruled as safety is...

- The defense gained possession in the field of play and then fumbled the ball into its own end zone before recovering. Had Texas recovered the fumble it would have been a 2 point PAT for Texas.

Had the defense only touched the ball and not possessed it, it would have been ruled a touchback and therefore the point no good.

The play was ruled perfectly.

You got to watch the tape again. One of the players for A&M picked up the ball around the 2 and tried to run with it, but one of the Texas players tackled him and the ball flew into the end zone. Another A&M player then fell on the ball for a safety. It was the right call.

So if a Texas player had jumped on it wouldn't it still have been a 1 point conversion or would have it been a two point conversion.


I say this is another silly ass rule.
