So, I've been wanting to ask the board about a story I heard back in the 90s when I was a kid. A friend of mine and I were discussing how ND got all the calls and seemed to have a lot of luck whenever they played anyone, including UM. He recounted a story to me about how we were playing ND and went for it on 4th down. We ran it and should have been across the sticks for a first down. However, the ref went as far as to place a 3x5 note card between the tip of the ball and the stick to show we didn't get the first down.
Can anyone ever recall that happening? I know I never saw it, but I think the guy was referring to a game in the early 90s. I think he said we received a piling on penalty in that game as well.
I realize that is pretty vague, but the note card thing has always stuck with me and that's why I wanted to ask about it.
