OT Sorgi Incident
No video, but:
There's no debate - Reynolds admitted doing it, and apologized.
Sir, quality find.
Yeah...that seems about right.
Best part about it was he essentially caused the loss, as once Sorgi was out the D was selling out to stop the run, opening up the bomb thrown by the backup for the winning score.
The Stocco bomb to Lee Evans was the happiest I have been and likely will ever be about something related to the University of Wisconsin's football team.
It was also a good moment for America.
What I enjoyed about this comment was the "It was also a good moment for America."
Thank you for this superbly executed line and joke.
It actually was Matt Schabert who threw the bomb to Evans. I honestly didn't remember either though and wouldn't have known without looking it up.
After all it was just a 2 win Indiana team up next. They suspend him for their big game against a top 10 team in Iowa, and then have him back for the following week against a team that only beat Indiana State, and Illinois(who was 1-11, 0-8). I think they could have afforded to leave him out.
I love this quote though:
"Despite what opposing fans, teams and Maurice Clarett might say, Ohio State has conducted itself with class throughout its great run over the last year and a half. Head coach Jim Tressel has proven himself to be of the highest character, and now he has a chance to once again make a statement with his program by suspending Reynolds for a game to show that cheap actions like that won’t be tolerated. Ohio State is too good and too talented to have to resort to those sorts of tactics.
The Sorgi Incident: great name for a band.
I'm thinkin' The Sorgi Incident should be a punk band based out of Madison - guys dolled up like cheerleaders. Think Badgers meet New York Dolls.
I did manage to find a pic of it! Took a while...
And its not letting me post it. Blocked by spam filters
its at gridironwest.com though
Thanks, I should have just saved it and then uploaded it, but didn't think of that right away, HA. I just created my account when I found the pic so please excuse my noobness!
i guess this will do...
Fucking dirty animals.
I think it may have been purged from the internet. Couldn't find it anywhere which is strange for something so memorable for those of us who watched the game.
Yes, when I was looking for a video of it, I came across a site where they were talking about the play and someone had said when the game aired on ESPN Classic a few months ago, they removed the "Reynold's Choke" from the game. Other than that, they showed the game in its entirety. That was all that got edited out... weird!?
