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

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

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
