I assumed that this play was kind of a separate thing and if they got the 10 yards they would get the ball at their own 25 again but if they didn’t the opponent would get the ball at the spot of the end of the play.
Why call it 4th and 15 if that's the case?
When I first read a summary of the rules it wasn’t described like that. It just said an attempt to make 10 yards. A recent quote I saw from a league official DID describe it as a 4th and 10. So now I’m thInking it is a timed down and the GoGATech scenario could play out. I mean in reality it kinda makes sense. If there’s very little time left teams basically attempt a one play TD after they recover an onside kick. So this just cuts out the middle man by making it part of the possession change attempt.
It would make the game more exciting if the onside kick down wasnt timed.
what happens on the onside if the defense goes offside? or if there's a hold on offense?
Defense offside should be a 5 yard penalty replay the down. Holding on Offense would be the defense's choice of declining the penalty or 10 yards and replay the down.
you know those are the rules or are you just saying that its exactly like a regular in-game down? I was curious if any penalty might screw the offense and result in a fail, doubt they'd do that with the defense.
Love that our coach already said F it
I would assume that since they are calling it a "4th and 10," it would be treated just like any other 4th and 10.
