Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents

I have my MLIS from there but I will laugh hysterically at this for the next few minutes.

Why did they tackle him? They should've waited until he got to the endzone and scored 2 for it, lol. Maybe next time...
"that's why you don't go to Ohio State, Lawrence"
& then goad him into tossing you the ball for a TD.
"Don't throw that ball at me"
Everyone was just so confused by what was happening that instinct (i.e., tackle the guy with the ball) bumped reason out of the way momentarily. .
Every time an MGoBoard poster complains about a thread topic, God kills a baby panda.
Not sure what's worse. The Kent State players returning it the wrong way, or all of Towson actually trying to chase him down to prevent him from getting the safety
the trash talking after the 'return'
Epic would have been his own teammates having to tackle him to prevent the safety.
KSU guy on the 10, high stepping and starting to prematurely celebrate a bit and one of his teammates spears him. I would have lost at least two internal organs due to laughing.
Question: With the new taunting rules in place, if he had high-stepped his way into the end zone, would the refs have nullified the safety? MIND ASPLODE

Yes, the penalty would nullify the safety, but of course Towson would decline the penalty and take the points. I assume that no team has ever declined an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but this would be a situation where you would want to do that.
Dudes were blocking too! Great stuff.

I thought a muffed punt couldn't be advanced...err, declined? Either way, still hilarious.
I guess the NCAA never thought about this happening when they made the rules
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?

Nice way to start the year, Kent! Who is coaching this cluster$#@#%?
(OSU coaching tree, I believe.)
Huh, maybe some guys do play football while stoned.
Not shocked if they were. It's Kent State....
Wait a minute, Wait a minute, HOLY MOLY

Works great with your sig too haha

I can't imagine being this poor guy. The best he can hope for is that this gets him free drinks in Akron for the rest of his life.
“Jug security is always at a premium.”
He becomes Kent State's top return man, catches the eyes of NFL scouts, gets drafted and makes the Pro Bowl.
But he will probably have to settle for being the #1 play on Sportscenter Not Top Ten Plays
Dear lord I hope the first scenario doesn't happen for the sole reason that I don't want to hear about it everytime Musburger is on a broadcast.
He talks shit afterwards too, and it looks like he doesn't realize it until he's halfway off the field.

It sure seems like Kent State would benefit from a preseason or an exhibition game, but I'm sure glad they weren't afforded that opportunity.
In all seriousness I cannot laugh at this. I feel awful for that guy.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
I know this kid's family. He's a good kid that has overcome a lot. This hurts though.
The return man attempted to get out of the way of the ball but then tried to catch it off the hop and fumbled, the Towson players tackled Parker instead of letting him run for a safety, and a few Kent State players threw some blocks on the "return". And it was a pretty impressive return even if it was the wrong way.
The Towson guys who ran him down must feel dumb as hell too.
But that KSU player will never live this down. It could be worse, though. He could have returned it all the way.
Go Blue! Always!
Hello not top 10!
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
Can someone who has played football at a high level explain what any of these people are thinking? I don't understnand how this can happen.
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
1. This is not football at a high level.
2. The instinct to tackle the guy with the ball overshadows any nagging thoughts like "Wait, WTF?" The kids were probably thinking it was the wrong way, but none of them wanted to be the one to stop pursuing, especially since everyone else on the field was playing as usual. Herd mentality is actually a pretty cool thing.
is still a D1 football player. Most likely it's somebody who has been playing the game since they were a kid, you think running the ball in the correct direction would be ingrained into the player's brain at this point.
A high school player with even one MAC offer is in the top what, one percent, of football players nationwide? Even that might be a little on the generous side. This is definitely high level football, even if KSU isn't super elite like the bigger conference schools.

Much more of a time commitment. If I could do it all over again, I would try to get into one of the DIII lacrosse schools in Maryland (assuming I could learn the game).

I was actually talking this evening about how I was glad DI hockey wasn't an option for me. I was ripping on a certain softball coach yet again and realized what life would be like in a high level hockey program (and how little chance I would have to get tons of ice time). Forty hours a week plus classes spanning two semesters doesn't sound that appealing at this point.
Of course, to high school justingoblue that might be a different story.
can fuel efforts that may seem impossible to a more jaded older adult.
For college chess, my options were basically UTD (no), Chicago (possible), or Maryland. There are some other teams but those are the biggest three teams. We talked about setting up matches with other schools at the Michigan chess club but I never participated in a match.
I did as well (another case of "would have been a terrible fit"...I think). If so, what was your essay topic? It's plenty nerdy, but still interesting to hear.
Chicago did not have a great engineering school so I did not wind up applying there. Maryland had the strongest engineering out of the 3 so likely that would be my "chess school". Nowadays I rep Team Michigan in intense correspondence chess battles.
has no engineering school. This is the essay prompt I responded to:
The University of Chicago has a venerable tradition of seminar-based learning, in which students and professors gather around the classroom table to discuss ideas. Less venerable, but no less valuable, is our tradition of conversation around another table–the dinner table. Indeed, on any given night you will find members of our student community breaking bread together, discussing everything from The Symposium to The Simpsons. We in the admissions office would argue that a community can be defined by its table—by its shape, by who finds a seat there, by what transpires there, by what is inspired there. Tell us about your table.
Still one of my favorite writing pieces I've done, even though a Buckeye made a paragraph long appearance (to be fair she wasn't all scarlet and grey at the time this was written, there was some good left in her, ala Return of the Jedi).
Chicago doesn't have an engineering school yet Fermi built the first nuclear fission reactor under the grandstands of thier football field at the time.
Would ever do this....

Did they tackle him? Clearly running 50 yards the wrong way was not his way of setting up lead blockers...
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
Sorry to be the one to say this, but the refs ended up making the correct call: Kent State ball at the spot of the fumble recovery (the Towson 7 yard line), first and goal. None of that wrong-way return actually happened.
The punt was not fumbled; it was muffed. A muffed kick can not be advanced if it is recovered by the kicking team.
Reference: Play-by-play (the last Kent State drive of the second quarter) http://www.kentstatesports.com/sports/fball/2012-13/boxscores/20120830_2...
True. We should have realized this rule. It's like the muffed punt we recovered to beat Wisconsin in 2001 where it couldn't be advanced so Hayden Epstein just kicked the field goal to win it.
And it's also the reason we beat Notre Dame 35-31 and not 41-31 in the UTL game last year (remember the T. Robinson recovery of the final kickoff of the game that he advanced to the endzone but was ruled a muff and not a fumble).
