Today Jay Christensen of TheWizOfOdds.com pointed me to a video of Boise State safety Jason Robinson blindsiding Louisiana Tech kicker Matt Nelson on a kickoff during the Broncos-Bulldogs game last week.
(WAC office calls hit “cheap” but provides no punishment)
After the Oct. 28 game, Rivals.com writer Jonathan Ford reported “Tech officials spoke with WAC Conference Commissioner Karl Benson and the WAC’s Supervisor of Officials” about the blind strike from behind. A week later, reportedly with no response from the conference office, Tech once again followed up with Benson.
While Benson has not issued a public statement on the matter, a current WAC head football coach informed me today that action regarding the incident has indeed taken place.
