There are some things you can’t do on a football field. Today we learned you cannot fake a fart.
In the first half against Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State was flagged for a pre-snap penalty. They moved back five yards for committing a “false fart.”

Later in the game, the same official issued a warning to the UK band. He told the leader to keep his whistle quiet before the snap. Obviously, somebody is insecure about their whistle blowing.
