“You could use the motivation of, ‘Hey, do you want to be the team that didn’t do it,’” Self said. “But I don’t know if you should motivate negatively like that. We want to win this year — 2017 is the year that we want to win the league. Other players in the past have certainly put (us) in position where it could be talked about.

When the officials finally came out from review, the official said there had been an inadvertent whistle, and a penalty during the kick. “By rule,” the official stated, the penalty was assessed from the spot of the kick and it was still Arkansas’ ball.
“Urban Meyer called my dad and he told him he should stop recruiting me because it’s not going to happen,” Thorpe told ESPN.com. “After I got my Penn State offer Urban called my dad and then he fell off the face of the earth. I didn’t know what happened and thought Ohio State was just not offering me, but I talked to my dad a year after the call and he was like, ‘Yeah, I told him he can’t recruit you.'”
