DeAndre Brown Gets Prothro'd

Sunday, December 21, 2008

(Title reference credit goes to Orson Swindle of EDSBS.)

Gruesome, gruesome injury to Southern Miss star receiver DeAndre Brown at the New Orleans Bowl. Please don't watch if you'd like to not feel physically ill.



The game is currently locked up at 27 with about 40 seconds to go and Troy is driving for a try at a score, but I mean, DAMN....and it looks like we're going to overtime in this game after a Hail Mary try...

...Southern Miss makes an FG that barely gets in after bouncing off the upright from their kicker named Barefoot...

HOLY CRAP, SOUTHERN MISS WINS ON AN FG BLOCK!

"Ouch" to that video. I figured it would be YouTube'd before the game was even over with.

I got a laugh out of them explaining the college OT rules and mildly alluding to what happened with McNabb.

Have I mentioned how much I drastically prefer college OT to the pros?

Who is this play-by-play guy? He makes me want to punch babies.

Like I said before, Troy has a defensive player named Bear Woods. Now I see the SMiss's kicker has the last name Barefoot. Strangeness, which is another way to describe him making that FG.

scumdog - some empty suit named Eric Collins. I've never heard of him before. Shaun King is color commentator.

scumdog, that's Shaun King, who is about as good of an announcer as he was an NFL QB. Yeah, from what I've heard the entire night, he's no Mike Patrick.

I prefer the pros OT to the college.
This is a gimmick reducing the field from 100 yards to 25.

Plus no punting or field position battles.

Well, he had another panic attack just a moment ago, yelling that the guy who blocked the kick "had his hair on fire". He's no Gus Johnson.

As you can see, I don't really care for either gentleman.

Great meltdown for Glusman, too.

Can we get video of the kicker's hissy fit? Did he have money on the game?

College OT is played on 50 % of the space used for Arenaball. Arenaball is just about dead.
Why doesn't the NCAA prepare players for the environment of NFL overtime, instead of a cheaper version of an already worthless form of the game?
Is making a tackle in a clutch situation really THAT boring?

The New Orleans Bowl?

Seriously?

That seems to be on the up and up, sure.

Give Southern Miss lots of credit for last night's win! The Eagles overcame a lot in that game, including a timeout lost due to wearing yellow uniforms instead of white, a 10-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter, and of course the gruesome broken leg.

Brown was a recruit who actually chose Southern Miss over some BCS schools, by the way. Get well, my man.

I have kidded the team's placekicker for having a kicking shoe on despite the name Barefoot and the head coach for not wearing a Tom Landry replica model despite the name Fedora. However, on this day, after this game, all is forgiven.
