26 days until a Central Michigan safety discovers exactly what a "pyrrhic victory in run support" means. Presumably, BiSB will regret not using spellcheck much sooner than that.

[EDIT: As pointed out in the comments, the poor soul being steamrolled is not some random high school freshman, but 2013 3.5-star Virginia signee Malcolm Cook. Cook is listed at 6'1" (measurement presumably taken before the above) and 194 pounds. Lawd.]

I had a comparable tackle against Kevin Grady in high school, which I was pretty psyched about because open field tackles against that team were few and far between. Worst part is I was a senior and he was a freshman and he still trucked me (he was already big as a frosh).

I remember watching that game on ESPNU (the safety plays for Christian Hackenberg's team) and they had a few angles of it...just a devastating hit. Felt bad for the kid, its a true "man vs boy" moment

but he really wasn't ready for the tackle either.  Didn't squre his shoulders, didn't drive with the legs...now, that could all be because Green was there before he was ready, and since he is a 4* as was mentioned...I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.  But he led with a weak attempt at a shoulder tackle.  Not gonna bring a big guy like that down by going after the upper body.  No siree....

I'd like to see how those two dudes end up on the ground in the beginning of the clip.  Are they just tackles gone wrong or did they get blown up by Green?
