Football: Controversy in Connecticut

November 9, 2010 |  8:44 am

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.
