If you watch the replay lonnie pryor was in the area and actually closer to the ball than when logan thomas on the next drive rhrew it straight into the ground with no wide reciever within 5 yards
Which is why the call should have been "ineligible receiver down field". You can't pass on a running play when all your O Line is blocking down field.
It was a legit call. The kicker is the rules which define a legal forward hand-off. From the NCAA rulebook:
Handing the Ball Forward
ARTICLE 6. No player may hand the ball forward except during a scrimmage down as follows:
a. A Team A back may hand the ball forward to another back only if both are behind their scrimmage line.
b. A Team A back behind his scrimmage line may hand the ball forward to a teammate who is on his scrimmage line at the snap, provided that teammate leaves his line position by a movement of both feet that faces him toward his own end line and is at least two yards behind his scrimmage line when he receives the ball (A.R. 7-1-6-I).
Freeman only turned 90 degrees. He was facing towards the sideline when receiving the ball. The rules state that the player must face "toward his own end line" when receiving the ball. He did not turn far enough for the play to count as a legal forward hand-off. Therefore it counted as a forward pass. The end result was a double forward pass.
We aren't Bama. How about Oregon? How about kstate? We are infinitely better than our road game opponents. You need to beat bad teams badly.
If you want to do knee jerk posts have at it. However, only a blind man would not think there is something seriously deficient in regard to our road game preperaton.
However I love the logic of a lot of the posts. We are not Bama, so therefore it is OK to have crap team after crap team play toe to toe with us just because we are not in Tally. I suspose it will be OK next year when we get run out of Clemson & Hogtown because they are away games
Sorry, put under wrong thread.

Which wouldnt have been a safety. It was the wrong call.
I'll be damn, good boy, I learned something.
Can't believe the ACC officials knew that.
The above thread is a discussion about the exact situation. At first I thought that the above poster was correct...however there are responses here from actual referees.
