Nightly Roundup: December 2, 2019

Anthony Campanile

One potential destination for assistant coach Anthony Campanile was removed when Rutgers re-hired Greg Schiano as head coach, but Campanile could still end up back in the northeast as a coach at Rutgers or Boston College.

Hit the jump for more.

Defensive coordinator Don Brown could also potentially end up at Boston College since they fired Steve Addazio as head coach.

The funny thing on this play is that J.K. Dobbins basically just laid there and let Michigan’s players do something stupid, seemingly with the knowledge that he knew he was going to gain his team an extra 15 yards by complying with their stupid efforts:

Hooray for bad officiating!

Seriously, officiating has always been bad. It’s a hard job to do. Everything is just magnified these days because of instant replay, Twitter, slo-mo, etc. But it still sucks when your team gets hurt by poor calls or poor non-calls.

    The two on-call PIs on our second drive hurt our momentum, and that was the start of the end. Paterson fumble, Hudson offsides, those were mistakes we couldn’t afford to make.

    It sucks, and I hope I’m wrong, but our roster doesn’t have the talent at CB or DT to compete with them next year.

    … but then 2021 is our year!

    2nd and 18 when the play clock hit zero – in watching a lot of football it seems like there are a decent amount of plays where it’s questionable as to whether the snap got off before the play clock hit zero. They are almost bang bang – play clock hitting zero and the snap happening almost simultaneously or a split second after the clock hit zero. On this play though, it seemed like there was at least a full second or more after the play clock hit zero before the ball was snapped.

    I wonder why football doesn’t have something like basketball. In basketball when the shot clock hits zero a red outline of lights around the shot clock goes on (as well as a buzzer) to make it easier for the officials to know the shot clock hit zero. Why hasn’t football adopted something similar? I doubt a buzzer would help much in football but if the play clock lit up in red when it hit zero it might make it easier for officials to determine if the snap got off in time.
