Video: Javier Arenas explains UF breakdown on LSU's fake FG, TD
Les Miles did it again.
He got me once in college, too. In 2007, LSU’s holder flipped a little lateral over his shoulder to kicker Colt David, and just like that, the Tigers’ 14-7 lead grew to 21-7.
Saturday, Miles got Florida on a fake field goal that resulted in 16-yard backward pass to kicker Trent Domingue, who bobbled it briefly before hauling it in and outrunning Gators cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III to score the game-winning touchdown.
Javier Arenas, an All-American corner at Alabama and a special teams demon, said normally the corner on Hargreaves’ side streaks up the field. Hargreaves looked like he was trying to block the kick instead.
“The corner on that side stays up field and cuts off that whole field off, for that particular reason,” Arenas said. “Or, if the other corner does block the ball, he’s there to scoop and score. So he’s supposed to be upfield.
“It looked like they maybe did an all-out block. If that’s the case he had no responsibility. But if the corners go, the safety to that side drops back, and I saw no one over there. I think it was just an all-out block. Not much he could have done about that play.”
Just chalk it up to a good play call, right?
“Or try to run him down from behind,” Arenas said.
