Illegal Motion?

My wife loves this clip and it has grown on me. But I must ask: Is this Illegal Motion?

No question. Of course, if they hadn't set the first time, then probably not.

What about the play clock?

It depends on how long a timeout would be in the state where this high school game was played, and if and when the official whistled play to resume.

If a timeout was two minutes, they did not wait long enough and the play would not count. But there would be no illegal motion (or delay of game).

Calling illegal motion on them is like calling illegal formation in "The Longest Yard" When the offensive line all shifts over for the screen pass to Michael Irvin. It's too cool to call a penalty.

it is a false start because the linemen's hands touch the ground which is their set position, then they lift up. so that would be the first penalty actually.

1. False start
2. Illegal Shift
3. Violation of numbering reqirement (must have five players in interior line numbered 50-79).
4. Delay of game (25 second clock violation).
5. Encroachment
6. Players not set for 1 second before snap.

If I looked longer I could find more. I have been a zebra for 29 years.
