It might be up for debate that the best defensive play a defender can make is a sack. There’s just nothing that gets the fans or teammates as jacked up as seeing your opponents quarterback get smashed like they just got ran over by a Mack truck. It’s just awesome! But the play in this video comes in at a very close second.
It’s a clean hit laid on by Kenny Bell of Nebraska. And the Wisconsin player he hits probably wishes he would’ve been hit by a Mack truck.
But I gotta say this. What are they trying to do to this sport? It’s a violent game. It’s a physical game. Everyone that straps on the pads and walks out on that field knows both of these facts. So if the hits clean, and the defender is a threat to the ball carrier, let-the-boys-play-the-game.
You may even feel the hit yourself a little bit. I also think you’ll be yelling something like B***S**T!!! when you see the call.
