VMI played Toledo in football on Sunday. It was a real mismatch, as you might expect between a Division 1-A team and a 1-AA team; Toledo won 66-3, 30 first downs to 14, 603 total yards gained to 232. But what made the game unique1 is this play:
The punter got rejected like a rookie trying to dunk on Dikembe Mutombo2. It’s not his fault, of course; the offensive line didn’t appear to so much as wave at the rush as it went by.
If only the late Bill King had called this game, it would have been his best ever “Holy Toledo!”
- One of the rare occasions that this word is used correctly online.
- Though the defender had the good grace not to wag his finger.
