Andre Parker‘s wrong way run didn’t count, but it grabbed plenty of attention on the first night of the college football season. The Kent State linebacker’s moment of confusion became an instant Internet sensation when he scooped up a loose ball in the Golden Flashes’ 41-21 victory against Towson and ran 58 yards toward the wrong goal line Thursday. Late in the first half, Kent State punted to Towson’s Derrick Joseph, who let the bouncing ball graze his arm. Parker realized Joseph’s mistake, grabbed the ball at the Towson 7 and proceeded to sprint in the wrong direction. Adding to the comedy, two Towson players ran down Parker and tackled him near the sideline.
I’m thinking the same thing you are… Kent State plays football. I honestly don’t know what is funnier this guy running the wrong way or the other team hauling ass after him and tackling. Football is here. Hooray..
