Oh, that damned MSM...sometimes they have the audacity to type something...good, dammit. Mark Bechtel has a funny and informative little entry on trick plays in his daily blog. (Which isn't a blog, exactly; it's more like a daily column without links to other stuff, archived posts, or poorly hacked-together photoshop projects. Which is what we recognize as a blog, after all.)
Our personal favorite trick play in recent memory--besides well-hung crackhead Tom Sizemore talking attractive woman Elizabeth Hurley into having sex with him on camera--was Clemson's variation on the fumblerooski in the Peach Bowl a few years back. With a crowded power-I backfield, the qb faked a fumble while the ball was snapped through the qb's legs to the upback. A hilarious play, especially with Charlie Whitehurst earning his Oscar and the Tennessee defense doing everything but running out onto Forsyth Street looking for the ball. It scored a TD for the Tigers, too, which shows you just how demoralizing backyard plays can be. We keep waiting for the "all-trick play" offense to resurface, and have high hopes since Hal Mumme, after all, is back in business as New Mexico State.

Nice trickeration, Tom.
