    This seems to be quite unique in the sport. Almost like a rugby move. Why isnt it used more often because the defence did not have a clue how to deal with it ?

    It's not used more often, because it usually doesn't work. It's a desperation move used at the end of a game. Also, this is a college game. In the pros the greater average speed of the defenders would normally shut it down.

    This type of play is successful on occasion because of pure luck

    This is the greatest try ever scored.
