> Don't worry about it, man! You did good even though the TD was wiped out, the video of your run into the end zone has been played hundreds of times on all the sports shows. It shows another weapon LSU has ... a great punter who can run fast after a fake punt.

But not only run fast, but have the presence of mind to not punt the ball and run.

That was not a called fake by Coach Miles. Brad looked up and saw Florida bailed and he took off! Great Smarts! If he keeps that up, I'm sure he'll have another chance some day!

I agree that I wouldn't call it "Excessive" Taunting, but it was taunting.

Being that it was the first instance of taunting, that at least I have heard of this year, the refs felt the need to take a hard line on the ruling. It is what it is, and I'm sure he's learned his lesson, and I'm sure the other players have seen now how easy it is to have points taken off the board. If it curbs future penalties it say it worked.

That play was hilarious. Did you see the big smile on Wing's face as he crossed the goal line. Classic. Florida should have been penalized for excessive slowness and too many players with their head-up-their-...

It's going to be the National Championship game. Just tell old Nick to keep an eye on our punter. He's fast you know. And don't forget to block Mathieu - he has more touchdowns than some of your offensive starters.

I agree... That was a huge play for a kicker and to do it against a rival only makes it that much bigger!

It looked worse in slow motion... maybe the refs reviewed the play that way! LOL

I think it will be an epic matchup. Keep an eye on Mingo - he's faster in pads than anybody else in college football nekkid. He runs so fast it looks like he teleported from the secondary into the quarterback's face. I think the final score could be 3 to 2
