Just when you thought you had seen everything after watching the replacement refs struggle throughout the NFL pre-season, a Kent State linebacker ran a punt back the wrong way on college football’s opening weekend. Instead of running the ball into his own endzone, some 7 yards away, he got confused and ended up traveling 58 yards downfield- in the opposite direction. Hopefully, there will be a GPS gift-wrapped under his tree this Christmas…
You can clearly see the reaction of Parker when after the play he’s informed by a teammate that he had gone in the wrong direction. And the thing is, had several Towson players NOT tackled Parker, he would have continued all the way into the endzone for a safety!
Watch what happened…
It’s now rumored that the AD Joel Neilsen Athletics Dept of Kent State have approached to the Engineering Dept to come up with a functional GPS unit that fits into the helmets of the Kent State football players .
It might not help them play any better but it will certainly assist them getting on and off the field prior to and after a game .
LOL The Brit with the Wit strikes again! Good idea Alan! I wonder if there already is a patent pending on this concept…
Let’s put it this way , it can’t hurt if they were to instigate that ! It might even catch on in the NFL, and help the Jets find the end-zone . Well they did, in their final preseason game in scoring their first touchdown . Unfortunately for Rex Ryan , neither Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez were the passers involved, as it was left to third string starter, Greg McElroy to initiate the drive . The Jets though ., still ended up losing 28-10 to the Eagles .
If at all interested let me know what you think ?

Read the ‘changing but not for the better article’. First of all I didn’t see a place for comments following the piece. Second, it looks like your site has undergone a complete transformation and I like it!
As for the article, there is so much information on so many subjects that my comments might rival the length of the article itself! However, on a few of the points raised; Clearly you don’t have a fondness for Mr. Goodell. (not many do) On the subject of paying the real refs I say Roger should do so, at any expense, to save the product’s integrity.
The Jets, well let’s just say it could be a long season for them. Remember when they had all that success in Sanchez’ first 2 seasons they had much more talent on the field that was left there for Tannenbaum. Jeremy Cotchery, Braylon Edwards, LT, et al. He never did anything to replace or inhance his offense over the past 2 seasons and that’s why there is an inferior package on the field. Mike is totally inept!
Lastly, I was a big fan of Chris Cooley. And agree that he was the cement that was a big part of the Redskins foundation for so many years. He will be missed for his talent and leadership.
Cayman Thorn’s crystal ball predicts…..my Dolphins are going to take this kid in the first round. Sadly, I’m plenty fine with that pick. Hey…he got 58 yards on the pickup! It’s still something!
Cayman always looking at the glass half full. I hear the department of transportation will be handing out STOP! WRONG WAY, DO NOT ENTER SIGNS at all future Ken state games. Is it just me or does Ken and Penn sound a like?
It’s you Pete. There is no Ken State. It’s Kent State. But thanks for the sign option though. Already forwarded it to the Athleic Director of Kent State who is a real Athletic supporter…:)
Yes but Kent and Penn don’t RHYME so it blows the JOKE! Duhhh. Gee thanks Debbie downer!! Ha, Ha… I did take a few of your recommended sleepers in the later rounds. Eli, luck, Chris Johnson, Jamaal Charles, BJGE, Julio Jones, Demarious Thomas, Jason Whitten, Dustin Keller, San Fran D., Titus Young, Stephen Gostkowski… Boooyea!
Charles Luck and Witten are ?? Luck is ok as your backup. Charles coming off of a major injury & surgery. Witten has yet to be cleared with a lacerated spleen.. The rest look very good!
Nice! Thyanks! Yes Luck back up till he hits the wall. Witten i am xing fingers same for Charles. Good upside i hope.
What he did was bring the opposing team 58 yrds closer to the goal line..
Any truth to the rumor that kick return specialists Devin Hester and Percy Harvin will be asking their teams for a pay raise after Andre Parker’s antics ?
No, however Parkins says that Hester and Harvin are running the wrong way when they return punts…
It’d be fun with such an occurrence .
I can’t wait to see how the season turns out for the Chargers . I truly believe that Turner will be shown the door if they under-achieve once again ! But it shouldn’t be just Norv Turner being shown the door but also GM AJ Smith .
Not expecting much from this team. They brought in Meachem to replace Jackson. That move won’t get you too many Division championships…Oakland has the better team with their receivers, backs, and D..
The Raiders may well have that but they also have the under-achieving —- Carson Palmer .
I believe that the incumbent in the White House tried to sell us on the message ” Change we can believe in ” ? Since Palmer joined the Raiders there hasn’t been much change has there ?
No, but I think you will see a marked improvement this year over last. They have a pretty good team on both sides of the ball, 2 pro-bowl caliber WR and a running back, if he can just stay healthy, is a top 5 RB in the league.
Ifs, buts and what might be ! Only way to prognosticate the Raiders . You’ve also overlooked the fact they have a rookie coach in Dennis Allen . How’s that really going to work out ?
Reggie McKenzie and Al Davis’ son , Mark Davis are carrying on the patriarch’s tradition .
Didn’t say they were going to win the Super Bowl this season! Just said they’re more improved. That’s all I said. The only “If” concerned the health of McFadden. Jeez Alan, wouldn’t the health of Matthew Stafford affect the Lion’s performance? I mean really counsellor, are we really going to argue the semantics of how I describe a team’s probable performance?”Ifs” are included in every conversation when predicting how a team might or might not do since the beginning of time.
As for the Raiders new coach Dennis Allen, I’m unimpressed that he’s a first year guy. Don McCafferty (Colts, Super Bowl V) and George Seifert (49ers, XXIV) were rookie head coaches and both won the Super Bowl. Enough said.
And the coaches in question had great teams that won those Superbowls . This is not a great Raiders team by any stretch of the imagination .
The division however , should prove to be interesting with so many plot-lines. One of which , I believe will lead to the firing of Norv Turner and the possible sale of the Chargers . The Spanos’ family simply haven’t a clue as what is needed to make that franchise a success . The fans have been asked to put up with way to much crap in recent years , beyond the ineptitude of the team , along with Norv Turner and A J Smith .
Gotta go , taking the girlfriend out for a night on the town . Enjoy the weekend and the revelry of the sporting events .
wow talk about embrassing !!!!! but I can see how he did that He was so into the moment LOL good video !!!
He was. And I felt for the kid when his teammate explained to him what he had done. There wouldn’t have been a rock large enough for be to crawl under if that was me in front of 50,000 people!!
