The ref could've stated "76 was uncovered" in the place of saying "not enough men on the LOS." There are a variety of different ways you can have an illegal formation--that's why I was asking.

So it was something like this:

---------------D E F E N S E --------------

----------------O O X O O-----------------
O---O-------------- O --------------------
---------------------------------------O--
-------------------- O --------------------
-------------------- O --------------------

If only 5 were on the line then it's IF all day. I wouldn't get hung up on exactly what the ref said per sai. I know that I've given explanations when mic'ed up that I thought (after I said it) "what the crap does that even mean?" lol Caught in the moment, sometimes the white hat's explanation can be lacking.
