They blew the spot by a yard.

Not sure we would have gotten it, but it would have been real close.

Three timeouts left, challenge it.

The NA 4th down play? Wasn't even close in real time. Would have been a wasted TO, which they needed.

Agreed on both points.

They marked the ball where his left foot, which was his back foot stepped out, not where the ball was which was in his right arm over his right leg, the front leg.

He was definitely plus or minus one foot from the yellow line they show.

It's where the ball is when you step out.

Of course dipshit Agholar didn't follow his blockers and instead of cutting it up inside, went outside, turning a first down into a turnover on downs.

I know where they should spot the ball but he was still way short of the 1st down.

And you're right, bad decision for him to NOT follow his blockers. He should have made that 1st down but he didn't.
