WATCH: Referees shrug as Division III team kicks blocked FG through uprights
We don't know if this was legal, but it should be.
There's a lot of hyperbole in the world today, but when I tell you right now that I saw the strangest field goal of all time on Saturday, I mean it.
It happened in a Division III game between Texas Lutheran and Belhaven University. Texas Lutheran won the game 37-0, but before the end of the first half, it lined up for an 18-yard field goal. And it was no ordinary 18-yard field goal.
Let's check it out from a different angle.
Now, the best part of this entire play may not be the kick itself but the reaction by the referees. They look at each other and shrug. It's as if they have no idea what happened, or at the very least, no idea if what just happened is legal.
I don't know if it's legal myself, so I can't blame them.
What I do know is that whether the field goal was legal or not, it counted, and it was so amazing that legality probably shouldn't matter anyway. Sometimes you just have to ignore the rules.
