Yup. The play was called and he went to his position.

Just another game with head scratching on the offensive side of the ball.
The play after the penalty, we also only had 10 guys out on the field. I figured the penalty was called for 12 guys in the huddle, as there was a guy running off and I thought the ref looked at him and then threw the flag. But then I noticed, as others have said that AA was still on the field, so my guess is that AA was supposed to sit out, and whoever it was running off the field should have been there instead of AA maybe?
I'll give the staff a little slack for not being on top of everything for one play in light of just having survived what could have been a major disaster. At least they didn't burn a redshirt for one useless play late in the season.
I was too busy thinking "DON'T PULL TILLER'S REDSHIRT!!!" to be thinking about who was and wasn't legal on the field...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
Fans that had any remote concern that Gene would pull Tiller's redshirt really don't have much faith in the guy - as it would've been a ******** move of epic failure.
The sequence of events that occurred on that play did not suggest full brain function of somebody. There are a lot of coaches on that sideline that were a mere 15 ft from AA and he's kinda hard to miss. At least 1 of them was just at his side when he was on the ground seconds before the penalization.
Middle schoolers have to come out a play if they require medical attention from the sideline. As in basketball and presumably baseball.
It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but its just another guy running into a goalpost in a season full of goalposts.
Wasn't the "huddle" just a big bunch of guys (including coaches) on the sideline? I don't remember a traditional huddle.
I would also like to here from the coaches -- though just from curiosity. Did they try to sneak in a trick play? Did AA just mess up because he wasn't all there? Did they do it on purpose for some obscure reason?
May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
