Let's not forget that the Coach sat in the young man living room basically begging them to come to their school. Those student - athletes are human beings. When they sign on the dotted line, they bring more than just their athletic ability. Plus if they pull all those scholarships, it would take years to rebuild that roster and the athletic department revenue from lack of ticket sales and concessions. It's a lose- lose situation.
I noticed that the holder made a pass from his knees. In any other aspect of the game, any play made from the knees if considered down. There should be some consideration in place for a role change that moves towards the NFL "down by contact" rule or a rule that forces the holder to come up before making a quarterback play (handoff, pass,etc.)
