  1. 1. Did you know that Norman's INT return was for naught?

I didn't. I had never seen this happen before and always wanted to, just for the sheer hilarity of it. So I thought I had seen us get the lead right back after losing it moments prior, only to have someone next to me tell me that the play was dead the moment Norman picked it off. I never knew this... especially because you always hear that when TDs are scored with no time on the clock at the end of a close game, by rule the extra point must be attempted. I always thought it was because something like this could happen and give the trailing team a miracle chance to win the game. You learn something new every day, apparently.

Yeah, I did. Usually everyone stops whenever there is a turnover on those plays.

I thought for some reason that we would get the 2 points.

Regardless that play pumped us up and but we just couldn't keep the momentum.

I voted "yes" because the game announcers said so immediately when it happened, and then non stopped the entire time Norman was running. Otherwise I didnt. If anything they should award the opposing team 2 pts themselves on a play like that if they dont want to count it as a TD.

Steelers-Redskins had audio at Ale House (...of course), so I didn't get to hear.

For those who didn't know, I hope the barrage of whistles you heard before Norman even made it to the 30 yard line were a good clue the play was dead.

The reason I knew is because about 10 years ago, App State won a game over Furman due this exact scenario. Under a minute left and Furman went for two with a one point lead to ensure that a FG would only tie the game. ASU intercepted the pass and took it 100 yards for two points and the lead (and eventual win).

The nicknamed it miracle on the mountain:

It is a college rule.

I would think all the whistles would have given him a clue.

Hard to understand how you can be a professional, and not know the rules. Although it was fun watching him give it his all. He wasn't going to be denied. Great effort.

Also, someone needed to knock the poo outta Cutler. That idiot was still trying to make a tackle. Freebie hit on a derp of a QB.

I was smoking a cigarette outside watching the play, for some reason I was thinking we would get the 2 points and take the lead, I was screaming with excitement....
