and thus ended a really stupid debate about jersey number deservedness
I keep trying to put words here but the GIF is just looping endlessly in the editor and I no longer feel words are really necessary.
Gleeful cackling, on the other hand, seems totally appropriate. The rest of the ASU game in GIFs, which I swear isn't entirely devoted to Devin Funchess, is after the jump.
[JUMP, but probably not over two defenders because that's really hard unless, well, you're Devin Funchess.]
As usual, click the links/stills to open each GIF in a lightbox, and don't forget to vote for your favorite at the end of the post.
Run blocking! (Includes Mason Cole doing serious work.)
The most anticipated and exciting six-yard punt return in school history.
Denard laughs, the sun takes a day off.
NICE HIT, DELONTE.
While it didn't count, Wormley's second consecutive sack lives on in our collective memory.
10. Brady Hoke Smells Like America
ESPN ran a segment on College Gameday of head coaches reading mean tweets about themselves. It's perfect.
A certain perpetually aggrieved blogger will breathlessly post this because self-deprecating humor is advanced, man.
9. SIMMS MCELFRESH
If anything, I should probably rank this higher.
8. Conditioning Is Important (Blocking, Too)
As it turns out, it's way easier to make players miss at the second level when (1) you're at a reasonable playing weight, and (2) a second level exists.
In more HOORAY FOR HOLES*, here's Green scampering for 56 yards before even getting touched by a defender.
*Uh, working title.
7. Taco Meats Quarterback
Put that center on skates. Pretty cool replay angle here, too:
I really hope he just screamed "TACOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO."
6. Have Yourself A De'Veon
Ankle tackles just aren't going to cut it.
No, seriously. You're gonna hurt yourself.
ASU safety vs. Kyle Kalis was probably not a fair matchup.
5. A Punt Block TD In The First Game, As Is Tradition
Look at this still from Bryan Fuller. Then note that Mike McCray (#9), not Royce Jenkins-Stone, got his hand on the ball. Rather athletic play, I'd say.
The finish wasn't bad, either:
No idea how Gedeon kept his knees off the ground, but I'll be damned, he really did.
4. DG Does DG Things
Aw dang, it's a sack. Way short of the first down, at least. Okay, four-yard gain, nice job.
Wait, how did you get there?
3. Wear #2, Unlock Tackling Bonus
2. Spot-On Alan Branch Impression
FRAMES OF THE GAME: ALL FUNCHESS EVERYTHING
They bought the fake.
Don't tackle him low.
Welp, running out of options here, Coach.
"Remember that one time..."
"Yes, it literally happened five minutes ago."
"Sir, we're gonna need to check you for illegal rocket boots. And stick-um. And alien DNA."
