Kent State’s Andre Parker Returns A Muffed Punt The Wrong Way [FBHW]
Andre Parker of Kent State University picked up a fumbled punt return and proceeded to begin to carry the ball back in the wrong direction. It wasn’t until he was knocked out of bounds on his own 30 yard line that he realized what he had done. If his opponents would have let him return the kick all the way, he would have ran into his own end zone and caused a safety. Which leads me to also comment on how the other team was almost just as dumb for not letting that occur.
After everything was said and done, the officials realized about that little rule that states that a muffed punt can only be recovered and cannot be carried.

It seems as though all 22 players on the field… turn stupid when the football hit the ground. Because everybody reverese their jobs! – Free Beer
