The Michigan Wolverines are trying to vanquish an SEC foe in the South Carolina Gamecocks. To do this, they had to pull out all the stops and use trickeration. It was 4th and 4 and the kicker went running off to the other side of the field. Steve Spurrier probably should have called a time out but let the play develop anyways. Brady Hoke chose this play call to perfection. Of course, this fake only led to a conversation and not a touchdown, it was none-the-less amazing. Well played Wolverines.
