Clearly a typo on the NFL Channel ticker: It said that he benched 225 lbs only 16 times. I think they put that because the broadcast format doesn't allow for exponents or only has spacers for 2 digits.
Zoltan at NFL Combine
....WITH HIS TOES ONLY.....
Zoltan benched 225 Linebackers 16 times.
Zoltan benched 225 Emperial Star Destroyers 16 times.
and a dollar short. Would it be too much to ask where the space emperor reference comes from? I have seen it pop up on multiple posts and am trying to figure out what movie or book this comes from. The only other Zoltan I can think of is a crow in a Stephen King book. Please forgive me for my ignorance.
it comes from his punts which clearly break free of the earth's atmosphere before dropping back down inside the opponent's 5.
That's where the whole "space" thing comes from.
Isn't it from "dude wheres my car?"
I always thought it was because the space emperor in "dude where's my car" was named Zoltan.
In Dude, Where's My Car they run into a cult whose leader is named zoltan. It's also where we get the hand thing we do at the stadium:
I just assumed it was the altitude of his punts and his incredible first name.
I would always yell "PUNT IT TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!!!"
Isn't anything in double digits considered great for a K/P?
Did anyone see Eisen and Mayock arguing about Boston College and Michigan? Eisen said that Michigan had 3 players invited, which was one more than BC, but Mayock asserted that Zoltan "wasn't really a football player"
Although he offers excellent draft analysis, I fully expect Zoltan to strike him down after the combine.
