Tennessee QB Tyler Bray Goes From “Throat Slash” to Tears in Approximately 13.7 Minutes

In what was almost certainly the wildest game of the bowl season thus far, the North Carolina Tar Heels managed to pull out a bizarre Music City Bowl win last night over Tennessee.

The Volunteers clearly weren’t able to finish UNC on the field — I’d say they went as far as snatching defeat from the jowls of victory even — but you never would have known it from watching some of their players’ taunting gestures and antics throughout the game.

As seen above, Tennessee signal caller Tyler Bray was no exception to this unsportsmanlike behavior, and his lack of couth came back to haunt him in rather cathartic fashion.

Yeah, if you’re going to be as bold as the “throat slash” before it’s all said and done, you’ve got to be able to choke back the tears if and when the proverbial blade is pressed to your neck, dude. Pitiful.

Premature Joculation Awareness: The Silver Lining to Hartley’s Miss Against the Falcons

Naturally, there’s been a lot of talk about Saints kicker Garrett Hartley missing what would have been a game winning, dome-assisted, 29 yard chip shot against the Falcons yesterday in New Orleans. Just a week after being named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week, it might cost Hartley his job.

There still might be some good that comes out of this, though. Thanks to a lovely gif of Saints owner Tom Benson, some site called Deadspin has tried to raise awareness about a growing problem: Premature Joculation. Now, if the condition were isolated to elderly men, there might not be as much cause for concern. Unfortunately, as you’ll see below, even strapping young men under the age of 40 are not immune (19 second mark).

It’s all in your head, Saints Assistant Defensive Line coach Travis Jones. Next time, just relax, and let things take their course. Oh, and many thanks to Garrett Hartley…

Travis Jones played his college ball (and pretty well) and the University of Georgia back in the early 90’s (tough times for the Dawgs, eh?). After a very brief stint in the pros as a player, he eventually left his coaching mark as a DL coach and recruiting coordinator for some very good LSU Tigers teams. He’s been an NFL coach since 2004.
