What A Maroon!

I saw this play on Saturday and laughed my ass off.

It wasn't the costly penalty assessed to him that left UCLA's Rahim Moore so frustrated after Saturday's loss.

It was that he never got the chance to redeem himself.

Moore unsuccessfully lobbied the coaching staff to return to the game after suffering a second-quarter concussion when he laid out Stanford's Coby Fleener on an incomplete pass across the middle. The head-first hit drew a 15-yard penalty that turned fourth-and-8 into first-and-10 for Stanford, breathing new life into the Cardinal's second touchdown drive.

"I was more mad about that because I wanted to play," Moore said. "I told myself it won't hurt me to sit out a half to be able to play for the rest of my life. That was the hardest thing for me because I never sat out like that before."

The loss of Moore deprived UCLA of one of its top defensive playmakers on a day when its secondary looked uncharacteristically vulnerable.

Well you have see it for yourself.

What a Maroon!!

Fleener got right up after the hit and Moore was seeing Tweetie birds float around his head for the rest of the day. I mean did Moore really want to go down that road. Fleener is a big big dude.

If anyone finds the YouTube of this hit please post it!!
