Football: Controversy in Connecticut

There's a big debate going on in Connecticut after a high school football team somehow acquired an armband containing coded plays of its opponent and allegedly used it to set defenses.

Some might call that cheating.

ESPN's Outside the Lines will examine the controversy in a segment Tuesday at noon.

Southington High School is investigating the matter.

Would you use a lost armband against another team?

A Los Angeles Cathedral player lost one of his cards against St. Paul earlier this season, and Cathedral Coach Kevin Pearson noticed a St. Paul cornerback had the card taped to his wrist and asked the officials to get it back in the fourth quarter.

"I was laughing," Pearson said.

Yes it sure did Unfortunately Pearson noticed it in the last 5 mins of the game.
While the fans noticed it in the 1st qtr and were yelling at the coach but Pearson would NOT LISTEN. Good Job Pearson. Stop recruiting speed and start recruiting Big O LINE.
