Why would that be? I mean it'd be ridiculous but what if the kicker picked up the ball and took it all the way back into his own endzone?
Fiesta Bowl open thread
But i thought if the ball got back to the opposing endzone, that it would be a 2 pt conversion for them, no?
Lets say the holder for the kick just picks up the ball, walks back to his own endzone, and takes a knee. That would be a safety, no?
who knows, this is all new to me man
Wouldn't that be a normal safety?
Ron Cherry help us!!!
might be too busy discussing someone giving someone else the business
Rules are the same both ways, right? If the defending team blocked the kick and returned it for a "TD," it would only be 2 points.
Wikipedia has all the answers:
"a one point conversion safety can only be scored by the offense in high school and professional play; however, in college play a conversion safety can be scored by either the offense or the defense. Although a defensive conversion safety has never been scored, it is the only possible way a team could finish with a single point in an American football game.
Wikipedia is slightly wrong on this one, a 1 pt safety has occured before in college
Conversion attempt recovered by defensive team, they try and run it back for a two point conversion. Offense goes to prevent it after he's run say 95 yards, and causes the defender to fumble it. Someone on offense recovers, but doesn't fall on it. Picks it up to try ad return it back for 2 or just is stupid. Runs back into his own end zone, then is tackled. 1 point conversion.
You need a td to get a one point safety.
Lets say the holder for the extra point just picks up the ball, walks back to his own endzone, and takes a knee. That would be a safety, no?
According to wikipedia, the defense can score safety on a conversion attempt, which is worth one point:
A much rarer occurrence is the one-point conversion safety, which can be scored by the offense on a try attempt. In college football, the defense can also score a conversion safety; while this has never happened, it is the only possible way an American football team could finish a game with a single point.
One possible scenario: the extra point is blocked and the defense returns it almost the whole way, but an offensive player manages to strip the ball at the last second and fall on it in his team's own endzone, giving up one point (but not two).
If you were wondering, yes, the referee in this game is the one who gave this legendary call:
Ron Cherry just peaked in life...a one point safety
He's the man. Jim Delaney needs to pay whatever it takes to get him in our conference.
has a funny looking release and that might be the thing that hurts his NFL chances, at least he can take solace in the fact that he has a hot wife.
His only chance is wide receiver or Tim Tebow Wildcat package.
is almost following last nights script, scorewise
I don't understand why Kansas State was taking their sweet ass time on the last drive
This actually turned out to be a relatively boring game, IMO. After the opening kickoff fireworks it just seemed like blah.
Any game, and I mean ANY GAME, that features a one point safety is not boring. That and Oregon got to 35 as such: 8-15-22-25-32-35...those look like some mighty fine powerball numbers to me.
The Oregon fight song is pretty crappy. They need to come up with a better one.
I watch Oregon and i'm a little bit sad. There was a time when they were our goal-state offense, when we had Denard and Tate, and our "spread and shred" was shiny and new and all things were possible.
Now Denard is gone and the last remains of the spread offense will be packed up and stored away.
It was a fun dalliance or a while. But summer vacation is over and now it's back to school.
Rich Rod's offense is not the same as Oregon's. Oregon's is more pass oriented.
Hello, NFL. Didn't give much indication he'd be back, and confirmed that his agent is talking; he was just waiting until the end of the season.
