Thread: Onside Kick Returned for TD

  1. Default Onside Kick Returned for TD

    I have been watching college/professional football for ‘pert near 55 years——I have NEVER seen an onside kick house call — until Brinson’s spectacular, alert, agile, aggressive 6 pointer!!

    Very special play and player!!

    On a side note—we need to beat stAte!! We will take care of gagSt in Paulson. I am leery of the Red Wolves!!

    Go Eagles!! GATA!!

    Apparently ya'll forgot about Tusculum.

    Good to see it happen for the good guys though.

    It's happened before, not often but it does happen. It was icing on the cake and karma for a pointless onside kick.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    It was pointless except to practice in game conditions. At least Coach Viator didn’t feel the need to pointlessly use all of their timeouts at the end of a drubbing a al Summers

    Seen it happen a couple of times in Rec ball going both ways, against us. We had one like Saturday's and then one where the other team kicked off it bounced off one of my boys to the side where they picked it up and ran untouched for TD. I think it was the the Miami Dolphins I saw back in the days.

    Happened to us vs. Samford in Garrett's freshman year. Early in the game, too. We were all wondering why in the hell would Monken try an onside kick at that point...

    Chad Nighbert returned one for us vs Chattanooga in 1995/1996 up there at their old stadium on campus.

    Are you sure it wasn’t Tusculum in 2011?
    Thanks, Rastabot!

    Nope...at Samford...Garrett confirmed. I remember it clearly because we were late arriving and had just walked in through that little bricked entrance at the top of visiting stands...saw the OS kick and return for the TD, and wondered WTF was I seeing?
