WTF. Fryfogel just picked two DBs. These plays are illegal. Didn't even run a route just ran straight at the DBs and blocked before the pass was thrown.
I thought so, too.

So-called pick plays, sometimes referred to as “rub routes” in certain situations, have become a staple of NFL and college football, especially near the goal line, where the intended receiver only needs to run a relatively horizontal pass pattern to get the necessary yardage. When such plays are run, it is left to the referees to determine whether the play was carried out legally or not.

If one wide receiver runs into the defensive player covering another receiver, then it’s an easy flag for officials to throw. It gets more complicated when a wide receiver comes into contact with his own defender, getting in the way of another defensive player.

More like they miss the 3 drafted DB's from last year. Kids are just young outside of Wade. Plus Bucks not getting any presure on Pinex at all.

Any intentional attempt for the receiver to make contact with a defender is a pick and a penalty. Incidental contact is a rub. Fryfogel ran right at two DBs and started blocking. That's a pick. The ball hadn't even been thrown when he want into a blocking motion.

OSU not a championship contender this year with this pass defense. Clemson or Alabama would absolutely boat race them.....

Agree.

I usually don't complain about the reffing, but today has been a hot mess. Too much so-called subjectivity.

Fields will have some film to watch with all the wide open receivers he's missed and taken a sack instead.

This team has some great talent, but they aren’t getting it done today. Their pass D is embarrassing. Wade is not even close to being an Okudah. Not even an Arnette. Pass protection is awful. No game-breaker at RB. Fields making some awful choices. Penix looks like the best player on the field. OSU will escape, but did not look elite.
