OT: Fox on the sideline during TCU, Texas Tech game
Animals are awesome.
That is all.
Considering how the game was going at the time for TCU (really, the whole game in their case), they could have used that fox out there and it could have easily played a significant role in either their rushing game or on specials teams. Especially in the case of one particular play, perhaps since it cannot get its forelegs above its shoulders, it could return kicks and not worry about who may have signalled for a fair catch and how.
I thought it was critique of sideline reporting by FOX reporters during the game.
What a sly title.
I have to admit that (having not watched the game) my first thought was that the Michigan true freshman offensive lineman was on the sideline after reading the thread title. Thank goodness for the actual content...
Not the "Fox" I was expecting on the sidelines.
The first comment: "Ring-ding-ding dingeringeding!! Wa-pa-pa-pa wa-pa pow!!"
+1000 to you.
Poor fella, just wanted to get out of there.
Yeah and that fox probably could have called a better game than those refs. Lots of missed calls and lot of penalties called in general. I was actually pulling for Tech but they benefited from a lot of, ahem, questionable calls.
Yeah, it was an ugly game. Those officials were too busy checking out those snazzy Texas Tech uniforms to look for fumbles and such.
One rule I hate the most is the dropped ball before the endzone. It is a total bonehead play that in this case didn't hurt TTU because they just got the ball at the 1 (pre celebration penalty) and scored anyways. If the player drops the ball before the endzone it should be a touchback for the other team, that would get coaches on their players real fast for that mistake.
On one hand, I somewhat agree with you. On the other, I don't.
The ball was last possessed by the team (in this case Texas Tech) crossing the goal line. If the other team shows awareness and picks up the ball, then it would change possession (to TCU). I don't think Texas Tech should necessarily be punished when the other team didn't make an attempt to recover the ball.
The fox was just going back and forth along the sidelines.
The rabbit in the Michigan/Purdue game went the length of the field for a touchdown.
Not only that he stops in the endzone at the end of his run. That was one smart rabbit.
...was awesome but wow, I can't believe that happened 21 years ago already.
If only we had been recruiting Pahokee then, that rabbit would have been snatched up no problem.
He just looked scared. I wonder what they did to get him back to his habitat.
Humans used to try to domesticate foxes - much like dogs. Then we figured out dogs are easier to train. They are very intelligent animals.
Keeping with the wildlife them: for anyone who was at the ND game last week. What in the hell were those big insects flying around? Big, slow and looked like praying mantis' kinda from a distance but they never landed? Definately not moths. I thought they could have been spirits of frustrated ND players leaving this spiritual plane and moving on...
one of those bugs landed in row 50 of section 11. The guy grabbed it and tried to throw it backwards. They were huge!
One landed on somebody in section 15, and I'm 98% sure it was a praying mantis. Glad it didn't bite the dude's head off.
He would probably start at QB for Michigan State.
what the fox said:
I can play qb for Michigan State
That fox should be proud.

I ate green eggs and ham with him one time. Big mistake.
Whoever was announcing that game asked if the fox had socks once it got put into a box. I only saw purple frogs... no green eggs.
Honey Badger don't care.
Are we talking about Erin Andrews????
If someone wrote this screenplay, it would blow Rudy out of the water. I'm guessing it would go something like this:
Fox walks on at childhood favorite (since last season) Texas Tech.
Fox learns it likely has less than 4 years to live... because it's a fox.
Fox struggles to climb the depth chart due to lack of opposable thumbs.
Fox finds a niche in spying on opposing teams on the sideline.
Fox transfers to Michigan State to play quarterback.
Fox earns starting job.
Fox acquires rabies the night before the first game of the season.
Mark Dantonio forced to shoot fox with a shotgun.
Mark Dantonio also shoots Maxwell and Cook, turns to Terry and says, "Don't disappoint me."

Some of us are confusing our foxes. Red fox are intelligent for an animal, grey fox are dumb by any standard.
Poor fox, but it seems like nobody was particularly bothered by it.
