Yeah but the rule was changed to prevent future anomalies. The thing about the Hochuli call that nobody mentions is that he knew he blew it immediately...you can tell because they moved the ball backwards from the previous line of scrimmage: it was treated as a fumble. However, because of the whistle they couldn't allow a change of possession. That kind of crap needs to be erased from the rulebook, or be reviewable. Uch.
