Two pieces of media uncovered early this week point out a pair of interesting moments from the Florida Gators‘ embarrassing loss to Georgia Southern last Saturday.
The first video, which shows redshirt senior center Jonotthan Harrison and redshirt junior wide receiver Quinton Dunbar locked up and blocking each other on a jet sweep that actually results in senior wide receiver Solomon Patton rushing for first down, provides a bit of comic relief (albeit plenty of mockery as well from opposing fans) following a weekend of misery for the Gators football program.
“It’s Quinton, you know, and he’s coming down and he’s cracking on a ‘backer, and then also with the reverse, we had a guy pulling. The only thing I’d say is, hey, I know what Jon was doing, he’s trying to get around. I guess I’d tell Quinton to keep his eyes open a little bit,” explained offensive coordinator Brent Pease, who admitted to watching the play numerous times and finding a bit of humor in the folly.
“Sometimes you have to laugh. I mean, I’m just like that is… C’mon.”
It is quite obvious that ESPN analyst Cris Carter felt the same way considering he chose it as his moment of the week for the network’s popular “C’mon Man” segment.
Check out the incident involving Maye after the break!
On Tuesday, photographer Steven Johnson, who was shooting during Saturday’s game for GatorBait.net, captured some still shots of redshirt freshman safety Marcus Maye appearing to eye gouge an opposing player after making a tackle (left-to-right).
Though the maneuver looks blatant in pictures, with Maye appearing to check and see if anyone’s looking before reaching down, video of the play is much less conclusive.
