Football officials probably don't get enough credit for managing to stay the heck out of the way the vast majority of the time while doing their jobs each week.
Referee Jeff Maconaghy joined the ranks of those unlucky few who do get caught up in the play Saturday while working Duke's 35-7 win over Navy.
And Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds showed no mercy, giving Maconaghy a stiff arm as he scrambled during one play in the first half. Maconaghy clearly has work to do on that backpedal. He lost his hat and took a tumble but dusted himself off.
