Illicit Participation

Talk about a wild finish. In the waning seconds of the Alamo Bowl, Michigan dug deep into the playbook and attempted an octuple-hook-and-lateral that ended with both sidelines clearing, confused tackling, and Tyler Ecker coming up one pitch, thirteen yards, and one fatass trombone player away from the greatest finish in college football history.

For those of you who didn't see it or were too disoriented to make sense of it, the House Rock Built, with assistance from the magic of TiVo, has provided this readers' guide to the play that almost was.
