The coach had his team take a knee on the final extra point because “football’s not a sport where you’re supposed to score 100 points.”
Does the scoreboard even go to 100?
Two high school teams in Iowa played a game resembling football on Friday night. Council Bluffs Jefferson beat Sioux City North by a score of 99–81. That’s 180 points combined, an Iowa state record for both 11- and 8-man football.
It’s not even accurate to call this a shootout, since the vast majority of the offense came on the ground. The big star was Jefferson’s senior running back Cameron Baker, who already has an offer from Iowa and a visit lined up next weekend at Nebraska. Baker carried 34 times for 371 yards and scored eight touchdowns.
The score was so farcical that Jefferson’s head coach instructed his team not to stretch it to triple digits and had them take a knee on the final extra point attempt.
“I just felt that football’s not a sport where you’re supposed to score 100 points,” coach Brant Anderson told the Omaha World-Herald. “We just weren’t going to do it. I couldn’t have stopped us if we had to run a couple more offensive plays. At that point there I was like ‘Nah. We’re not getting 100.’ ”
Stop trying to rob Yasiel Puig
Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig’s Los Angeles-area home has been burglarized twice in the past year and a half. It was almost three times.
Robbers broke in to his house in March 2017 and stole at least $170,000 in jewelry, then he was robbed again while he was busy losing Game 7 of the World Series in November.
I think Puig should look into hiring some security when he’s out of town because burglars just tried to break into his house for a third time. According to TMZ, two guys tried to break into his house through the front door but Puig was able to scare them away by yelling at them through his internet-enabled doorbell.
Revenge is so sweet
FCS North Carolina A&T knocked off an FBS team for the third season in a row, beating East Carolina 28–23 on Sunday. The upset was especially sweet for Bears running back Tarik Cohen, who went to A&T after being repeatedly turned down by ECU.
