Team Executes Perfect Fumblerooski: In a 53-13 loss to Wake Forest, Presbyterian pulled off a fumblerooski trick play for a long touchdown.

That was AWESOME. God bless 'em (although seeing where they are from, maybe he/she already did) for putting a couple scores up.

If a team is going to run up the score on you, I think almost EVERY play should be a trick/gadget one.

Kick off return after the 6th touchdown? Time for the hidden ball trick.
Fourth and long? Time for the fake punt!
First down, deep in your zone? Drop kick that mutha!

Uh, grum . . . it was Presbyterian that used the fumblerooski.

That's what I meant. If a team runs up the score on you, then every play you do should be a trick/gadget one.

Hence my reference to kick off return after the 6th touchdown.

When Calvinists and Demon Deacons square off, something out of the ordinary is bound to happen.

The Presbyterian wideout made a good dead ball sell on the play. Shades of Devin Hester's tormentation of the Giants on that failed FG attempt.

(Hard to believe the Presbyterian team is actually called the Blue Hose. I just called a pulmonary specialist I know and he thinks that is a truly unfortunate choice for a team name).

Howard Schnellenberger is not amused.

Looks like the Wake Forest team and coaches need to learn some of the rules of football.
