For Pete's Sake

LSU player is up for college football’s cheap hit of the year

The first full day of college football kind of felt like the NCAA basketball tournament.

Round-the-clock games and big upsets.

One of the biggest came when Wisconsin beat No. 5 LSU 16-14. The Badgers’ D’Cota Dixon intercepted a pass late in the game to sew up the victory and went down to the ground, so the play was dead.

That didn’t stop LSU’s Josh Boutte from doing this:

It’s possible that Boutte didn’t realize the play was dead, but that seems like a stretch. Certainly he must have wondered why Dixon was joyously running around. Boutte was ejected.
