Not quite sure what to make of this.  Dogs and cats living together, ACC teams winning bowl games they weren't supposed to win.  Good on ya, Pitt and 'Cuse.

Also, have fun with the Maryland train wreck, Big Ten.

Also, too, how's James Coley workin' out at OC for ya, 'Canes?  Welcome aboard, Louisville.

I could not believe that.  By the time he took two steps and hit full stride, he was already by 7 of the Bearcats.  That was quite pathetic, especially since I picked Cincinnati in my football pool, but at that point, it was just awesome to watch.

And then the NC placekicker 'celebrated' by doinking the PAT.

Runs pretty fast for a guy with Nimitz-class clanging brass cojones.

In my high school days, a kick returner did that in front of me.  He awakened in the hospital.

He didn't call fair catch and took one step forward after catching the ball.  I was coming full speed and hit him 100%.  That was the coolest declete I ever saw on film.  You could read the brand of his shoes on the bottom of his feet as he went backwards eight yards in the air.  I got a little scared after the hit--it really did look like the kid was dead for a few minutes.

I don't recommend aspiring kick returners adopt this strategy.

Wow. 8 yards? Did you win state that year too?

It would have been more like fifteen yards in your mom's basement.  It's on film, I got some nice head pats from the coach.  I weighed about 220, the receiver probably weighed 150.  I was fast, he was nearly stationary.  You do the physics, wise ass.  By the by, we were a pretty average team.  Nine times out of ten, if a kick receiver pulls this kind of stunt, he will get his bell rung.  That's why you don't see this done very often.

Cincinnati's special teams looks like they are coached by Nick Saban.
