Watching the end of the Rose Bowl, I initially thought what a stupid decision to try to spike it. Then as I saw the replay, I began thinking, "Why did he wait 1 or more seconds after the clock started to snap the ball?"
What I'm wondering: Is it possible the ref rolls his arm to start the clock a second or so before he blows the whistle on the field?? Wilson and Konz are going on the sound but the official timer is working by sight.
Just a thought. Would love to hear people's thoughts
