New impenetrable punt-block formation:
With the new "no leaping" rule in place for next season on punt blocks, I've devised a revolutionary new blocking scheme to take full advantage of these statutes. Special thanks to Tackchevy for the inspiration.
Quote from the NCAA website: "There will also be a new rule prohibiting players from leaping over blockers in an attempt to block a punt."
Upon snapping the ball, all blockers are to lie down and form a shield that cannot be leaped by any defensive players. The punter can thus move up a few yards and reap the benefits of 45-yard punts turning into 50 yarders. I can only assume that a leap would be defined as any forward movement in which both feet are not on the ground at the same time. Therefore, for defenders to pass over the prostrate blockers, they would have to carefully keep their back foot on the ground until their front foot had passed over to the other side. This maneuver would require many hours of extra practice to perfect, wasting time that could've been devoted to offensive game planning (not that Greg Davis ever needed it... JUST EXECUTE BABY!!!). In fact, the second layer of blockers would provide another hurdle for would be leg lunging punt-blockers to surmount.
