What? The idea is that it didn't matter if Alabama stopped them or committed a penalty. I think the suggestion is Alabama just grab everyone and yank them down. Doesn't matter how illegal or obvious it is. The end result is that time still runs off the clock, so Clemson has to kick a FG (or risk winning or losing on one play) The point was was that there was no upside to NOT committing a penalty there. It's happened a few times before, like that obvious crazy holding play on punt as the last play of a game in the NFL earlier this year. Sometimes, committing a penalty is the smart play.
