cabezadecaballo will become famous soon enough
Terrible call, without question, in a JV game yesterday. I am curious as to what the proper correction should have been.

3rd and 8, QB and RB sell a read option so well that it fakes out a defender enough to tackle the RB without the ball 2.5 yds BLoS. Unfortunately, the back judge totally bought it too, and he blows the play dead. Meanwhile, the QB and the ball are 8 yards away and 3 short of the first down. After a zebra huddle, the offense gets the ball 4th and 3.

What should have happened ? Any set protocol, or all judgement here ?
