They are not saying much about it right now, but that ending of the ND - Washington was scary for the Washington player trying to catch the pass. He was hit violently while being sandwitched by two ND defenders, and his body kind of froze...like a manequin with arms raised up and legs slightly crossed together. I hope he is OK.
Wow, is that Wash receiver going to be OK?
yeah, im surprised they didn't say anything. That hit was brutal.
celebrating than showing the hurt kid. I hate ND/NBC.
It remindede of the hit on anquan boldin last year, same thing with the arms too
classy how NBC was too focused on watching nd sing their gay little song to even mention it too
NBC needs to die. They did not mention once if he was ok. That guy also laughed after the replay. Fuck ND
pan the camera toward where he was laying. Clearly the kid didn't just get up and walk off. Showing the team singing the anthem to ND fans is more important than letting people know whether a player is okay? You could clearly hear the stadium announcers saying something about it in the background, but I guess the game announcers had a different agenda.
On Golden(gay name) Tate's long pass play.
Hope the kid is okay, and like another poster said, Fuck NBC.
they showed the washington players all standing around looking down...i figured they were watching him being tended to. hope the kid is ok.
wow, -266 points. impressive.
do you get negative points?
and Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball...
hahahahaha funny (looks at point totals) huh...
Just when I thought I couldn't be any more sick of the love affair.
Appearantly they didn't care that there were those of us watching that had an interest in that kids' situation and well being.
F NDBC and that junk-ass Leprechaun.
Could anyone else make out what the PA announcer was trying to say during the moments after that play? It almost sounded like the PA announcer was pleading for one final play (perhaps due to a helmet-to-helmet flag) though I couldn't quite make it out as NBC had proceeded to congratulating Weis (gotta promote your product.)
The UW receiver ended up with a concussion, nothing serious though
What the hell does that mean? A rolled ankle is not serious. A concussion is.
It's kind of like in Varsity Blues. Concussions aren't serious until the 3rd one.
It means he walked off the field under his own power and wasn't carted off to a waiting ambulance. It means that he could see the field again in 7 days
guys, this answers your question
Yeah it only harms your athletic career and general well-being FOREVER
If the TV crew actually knew the UW player was seriously hurt (I thought it was obvious on the play itself, especially the replay), then shame on them for shoving this issue aside. I understand playing to your audience and celebrating a ND win, etc. but the kid looked seriously hurt. It seemed like they were intentionally ignoring the player on the field to focus on the celebration/Jake lockers reaction, and I find that sad.
Hope the kids all right. Good game, both teams played hard.
Glad to have you here at MGoBlog, Rasheed Wallace!
Man, imagine that kid's family watching the game on TV and seeing that. And not knowing a damned thing about it. All they knew is that some holy rollers winning a game is more important than a person's health. Imagine the worry for fuck's sake. Holy shit. NBC fucked them over 100%.
Or maybe they just figured Touchdown Jesus would lay-on-hands and make it OK. Guess he was too busy bonging beers and slammin' hos in celebration
