It was 4 & 8 and there was an illegal shift on our Offense. What should happen in this situation?

Well illegal shift is live ball so if never snapped you have a dead ball foul. Dead ball false start. Which would be 4th and 13. You canít have a live ball foul if the ball is never snapped.

Yeah, as soon as the running back and slot guy moved the they blew the whistle.  Then let Bixby decline it and said it was turnover on downs.

Speaking to the officials that were on this game about this play - they said they let the play go and you lost 3 yards because it is a live ball penalty.  Then since you didn't get the first down on the play, the penalty was automatically declined and it would then be a turnover on downs. 
If you have film that shows different please sent to bkelleyok@gmail but I am just saying it was a pretty veteran crew that knows what to do on a illegal motion penalty.  Not that we can't all make a mistake from time to time, this would just be an odd one :)
