Cal running back Jahvid Best made an ugly landing on his neck after an unbelievable leap over an Oregon State defender for a touchdown tonight.
Best was attended to by doctors for a prolonged period on the field before being immobilized on a stretcher.
The AP reports:
Best’s helmet came off on impact. He vaulted into the air over safety Cameron Collins. Paramedics removed his jersey and Best was on oxygen when carted away.
Not a good sign. Hopefully oxygen is precautionary.

College sophomores throwing up on a Saturday morning is not news, unless that college sophomore is vomiting on the 17 yard line after taking a brutal hit all while ESPN’s cameras are rolling and a national audience is watching.
Attempting to receive a pass in the flat Jahvid Best, sophomore running back for #23 California, was flattened by Maryland defensive back Kevin Barnes. The clean shot on the unsuspecting Best caused the Cal Bear to lose whatever green stuff he had in his system. (Video via AWFUL ANNOUNCING after the jump.)
Best’s lunch wasn’t the only thing lost. The Terps, the same Terps that lost to Middle Tennessee State last week, beat the Golden Bears 35-27.
