Default What do you call that 4th and 18 play.

Okay, this has been bugging me since the end of the Fiesta Bowl.

Hook and Lateral
Hook and Ladder

I believe that the first is correct, but I've heard sportscasters say both. Yeah, I know they mostly just read teleprompters and they often call a simple reverse play a "double reverse".

This ranks right up there with the "That guy stepped out of bounce," cries I hear (mostly in NFC North Games) when they mean Out of Bounds.

Vote!

Both are correct. Most people, however, say hook and ladder

Another one that pisses me off: Shovel pass VS. Shuffle pass. I said Hook and Ladder above, I say Shuffle here.

I've always heard it as "shovel," since it's kind of a shovelling motion. And I distinctly remember it being referred to as "hook and ladder" in "Varsity Blues," and that's the resident authority in my book.

That couldn't have gone any better. Two responses. Two opposing ideas.
