    WOW! I flat out loved that! Reminds me of that Dwayne Slay hit last year. Which one was a harder hit? Roberts or Slay's? Too close to call!

    The difference is that Slay's hit was NOT close to being called a penalty as opposed to yours. Was there helmet to helmet contact? If you pause it at around 1:35 or so, you can see the facemask being jostled by the helmet. Should there have been a flag? I don't know but I wouldn't argue if there was one. It was just one of those things that looked a little too close to call. I read somewhere in the comments section that there are no helmet to helmet penalties in college football. Is that true? Anyone?

    Dumbass should have called for a fair catch. That's all there is to it.

    GREAT HIT, Hagar! Thanks for bringing it to me.

    For those of you who want to see the Slay hit and compare the two...

    Slay's was hard, no doubt, but I'll go with Roberts because it looked like those two players had a higher combined closing speed.

    Dwayne Slay's Child?

    That's hilarious! I had replay about 10 times and never stopped laughing.

    What can I say, the kids got a future.

    He should be. That hit happened in 2004.

    Reggie Brown plays for the Eagles now.

    Whatever happened to Junior Rosegreen?
