Ask Mike: OL Three Yards Downfield

Please explain the rule that allows offensive linemen to advance three yards downfield and the potential for a penalty.

Former UNC offensive tackle, Mike Ingersoll, is back in Chapel Hill pursuing his law degree.  In his spare time he will address questions that you, the reader, have about the football team--his experiences and his opinions.  If your question is chosen, Mike will give his answer in an online segment.

Please send an e-mail to jb@insidecarolina.com or a private message to JB Cissell and include the following:

1) your question

(OPTIONAL--you may ask anonymously)

2) your first and last name

3) your hometown

4) at least one UNC affiliation (year of graduation, dept. of employment, years as a fan, etc.)

Thanks in advance for sending thoughtful question.
