A Beautiful Ending
« on: October 17, 2015, 08:09:33 PM »
To a crazy game.

Michigan State stuns Michigan with final-play fumble return
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Jalen Watts-Jackson grabbed a flubbed punt and lumbered 38 yards into the end zone for a touchdown on the final play of the game, giving No. 7 Michigan State a shocking 27-23 win over No. 12 Michigan in one of college football's most unlikely endings.

The guy who scored the TD for State, Jalen Watts-Jackson, hurt his hip (broken or dislocated); possibly in the celebratory dogpile.


Here's a gif of the touchdown. It doesn't show the celebration though.



I could watch this all day  :popcorn:

I don't think that the poor punter ever had a chance - even if he did catch it right.  :/

This must have just been a really good night for football.  The Oklahoma Sooners blew the K-State cats out of the water at 55-0!  Victory beer for everyone!!   :beer:

This is why I despise Wolverine fans. Aside from their complete doucheyness (vandalizing not just "Sparty" but also Magic Johnson's statue) there's this:

Michigan Punter Blake O’Neill Getting Death Threats, Suicide Suggestions On Social Media

Here we go again. A college athlete makes a crucial mistake in a football game and all of a sudden, he has to worry about his safety. Michigan punter Blake O’Neill is currently getting blasted on social media after botching a punt on the final play of his team’s game against Michigan State, which led to the Spartans’ game-winning touchdown.

O’Neill is getting death threats and suicide suggestions. Ironically, fans were singing his praises after an 80-yard punt earlier in the day.

Your unladyness is upsetting. There are better ways to voice displeasure.

There is no pleasing some people.  He complains about the way that I talk too.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
