From rivals.com at Yahoo! Sports:
All season, Florida State's offensive line has made a point to hold its water when defenders come across the line a little early, for reasons I don't quite understand and with occasionally comic results -- against North Carolina, there was more than one case of the entire front five remaining in its statue-like position well after officials blew the whistle on an offsides Tar Heel. The "freeze" is obviously a technique the 'Noles teach to ensure that the flag goes the other way.
I wonder if he thought he heard the whistle or what? Seriously, how can he not think after a minute, "Boy...I should really move. I look pretty freakin' stupid right now." By the way, my prom date said the same thing in her head.
