    Ah, the bit about QB Sanchez being shaken-up adds another interesting wrinkle. Was he attended to by the trainers? If so, I believe that the referee is obligated to give the team a “free” time-out since their player was injured on an illegal hit. [Side note: When Frank Leahy was coaching at Notre Dame in the 40s and 50s he was known for teaching his players to fake an injury to stop the clock if the Irish were out of timeouts. The Irish apparently actually practiced falling down injured in practice, and there was a set order in which each player was to play the injured party.]

    That aside, and acknowledging that I wasn’t there, I think mistakes were made by both the officials and the coaching staff. The coaching staff certainly should have realized that the game clock was set to start up again once the ball was placed, and they could have taken advantage of the central personal foul by sending in the training staff to check out Sanchez in order to buy some extra time. But the referees should have been telling the Centennial coaching staff to get off the field and warning them that they were going to set the ball and wind the clock. A memorable ending indeed.

      I don’t recall if Sanchez was looked at by the trainers or not. I only remember seeing both Sanchez and the Central D-lineman laying on the field next to a yellow flag. Then I remember thinking I had some time to update my blog because it seemed to be an official timeout. Then I looked up and the head ref was holding the ball in the air like it was a decapitated head in game of thrones, declaring game over. No one was in formation. I don’t even think the Central players were all on the field, let alone on-side.
