I am writing this post to get an idea of how often offensive holding is called in the American Athletic Conference. It is rarely if ever called in the Big Ten and it drives me just plain nuts. Teams like Ohio State and Michigan that have scrambling quarterbacks like Braxton Miller and Devin Gardner have a big advantage over teams like Penn State that play a more tradition drop back passing game with Christian Hackenberg where the ball is released very quickly. Miller and Gardner can run all over the place and get to extend the play because the defense is being held if not out and out tackled by the offensive line. I don't get to watch much AAC football so please forgive me for asking. How often is holding called? Do you think it's a problem? If it is a problem, it's a good thing you're going to the ACC next year. Unless they are worse.
