I didn’t catch the ECU vs. Southern Miss game down in Hattiesburg last weekend, but I did happen to catch a bit of the box score when I was doing the research for our latest Riveting Realities post. It was, well, intriguing, to say the least.
At first glance one simply sees a nice road win for the Pirates. 44-43 at Southern Miss – while perhaps not remarkable in and of itself – is pretty sweet for a program that had only won 9 of 35 games in the series’ history. What is remarkable, however, is a second glance – specifically at the team stats columns.
ECU rushed 24 times for 33 yards? Only completed 50% of its passes for 305 yards, getting picked off 3 times in the process? Lost a fumble as well? Forced zero Southern Miss turnovers, and lost the time of possession battle by a whopping 15 minutes?
I mean, just how in the hell did they manage to win this game – let alone score 44 points along the way?
Well, scenes like those seen after the jump probably had something to do with it…
that isn’t old enough to obtain a driver’s license in his home state. Seriously, Frumpsters. File this kid’s freak’s name away somewhere, and remember that you may or may not have first heard about him via your friends at Frumpzilla.
Foster is a Freshman at Troup County High School in LaGrange, Georgia. That’s right, a Freshman, and yet this is still probably one of the more impressive recruiting highlight reels you’re ever gonna see from a Linebacker. He’s not playing small time ball either. Class-AAA in Georgia is nothing to scoff at, and produces some big time talent on a regular basis.
Already weighing in at 6’2″, 205, it’s scary to think how Foster might develop over the next three years, and, barring something catastrophic, he’s all but sure to be one of the most prized recruits in the 2013 class. That said, consider this post Reuben’s official induction as the 3rd member of Frumpzilla’s High School Talent Freak Show Hall of Fame. He fits in nicely next to Nick Marshall (throwing the ball 70 yards in the air, in game, as a Sophomore) and Deuce Bello (in game, between the legs dunk).
You can track Reuben’s progress and the fight for his commitment at his Scout.com profile. He’s currently listing Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Georgia Tech as his favorites, but there’s obviously a long way to go…
***UPDATE: Herschel Walker defeated Scott Carson on January 29th, 2011 to improve his MMA record to 2-0. If you’re looking for video/coverage of that fight, see this link. The following video and story is related to Walker’s first MMA fight from January 30th, 2010.***
Herschel Walker doesn’t exactly look like he’s 47 years-old, does he? In fact, at least relative to the commonly held belief that the younger you are the better you can look, I’d say his appearance is likable to my peak potential during my neo-natal days.
But you can’t judge a book by its cover, right? Herschel being my childhood hero/sports idol, I was kind of worried when I first heard about his new MMA aspirations.
I was worried still after I saw the weigh-in photos, and despite the relatively unimposing look of the guy he’d be fighting. Even the tattoo of stylized poultry that graced Walker’s opponent did nothing to alleviate my concerns.
Still, I love the guy, so I had no choice but to cautiously tune in last night, prepared for the worst…
So, in case you haven’t noticed, some of us are a wee bit pumped up for the rivalry game tomorrow between State and carolina. I am no different. The douches are favored and “should” win this game, but that doesn’t faze me. I have a good feeling about the game. You know who else has a good feeling about the game?? Unborn baby fetuses! (or is it feti?) Below is a picture I found here. It shows an unborn child already supporting the school it will undoubtedly follow through good and bad(mostly bad…sorry little guy/gal, it’s an uphill battle). I take this as a good sign, GO WOLFPACK!!
More youtubage of The Pack after the jump!
