Is it me, or have there been an unusually inordinate number of gruesome leg-breaking incidents in football this season? Is it this new-fangled field turf? And, in the latest incident, Southern Miss’ DeAndre Brown was simply running a pattern by himself downfield when his leg decided it wanted to snap like a pretzel stick.
The organizers of the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl are pretty happy with all this, though, as it’s probably the only time anyone’s taken any time out of their day to talk about the game (which Southern Miss won over Troy, 30-27 in overtime).
Video, regrettably, after the jump.
