Ref puts a hit on a QB

12 posts in this topic

SEC Umpire Wilbur Hackett Jr. takes down the Univeristy of South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia in a game vs. LSU this past saturday. The SEC reviewed the play and says it was unintentional. I think otherwise...nice hit though.:D

Basketball refs are now filling in for football? Give him a helmit.

Too funny and he was in a good position. I figure it was a reflex action preparing himself to get hit.

That was not defending himself. He didn't make any effort to get out of the way it looked like he purposely moved into position to make the block. Either way its hilarious. laugh

The rule is an official is part of the field and we don't need to move to get out of the way, mostly because then we'd probably just be in someone else's way who was going to avoid us. Umpire is the most likely official to get hit on any given play given their location in the middle of the action. The rest of us are generally outside the action and are taught to stay back from the action and move in slowly to avoid getting hit (doesn't always work, I took a spike on the top of my foot Tuesday night in a playoff game and my foot is all swelled up and I can't even tie my shoe the last two days at work but its a good thoery)

This play however is strange to me. He started out in a strange spot on the field (looks anyway like he was very wide for an umpire) and seemed to move into a worse spot as opposed to holding his ground. The flipper; well you've got to protect yourself if you are going to get hit so I don't have a real problem with that, I just don't get why he moved to the spot that put him in that position to need to use it.

Looks worse than it is, but its strange...

That's hilarious! Buffalo Wild Wings could use that in their new commercials where the refs go to replay and ask the bar what to do

He didnt even attempt to get out of the way. We will find out later he bet on the game. wink

Nice open field hit though.

I loved that clip. ESPN couldn't get enough of it. Looks like Hackett misses his college football days a little too much. It wasn't that great of a hit. I just think Garcia went down out of shock at the zebra striking back. gringringrin

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
