The rule book says that a play counts if the officials don't whistle for a review before the next snap. Refs have been breaking that rule for the last 2 seasons. Jones had a legitimate gripe, even though the replay showed that it wasn't a catch.

Glad to see that the stats back up my belief that Palardy has become one of the best dual-threat kickers in the country this year. He may not have quite the FG range that UGA's Morgan has, but it may be farther than we have seen yet this year. Even extra points were an adventure in the past, but this year they have all been right down the middle. That failed fake-punt play against South Alabama showed that he is something of an athlete as well. He has taken a lot of abuse from Vol fans for much of his career previously, so I am doubly happy that he is having success this year.
