Here I was thinking that the hit Tennessee delivered on UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince last weekend that broke his jaw was a tough hit. I may have to reconsider things. Texas defensive end Sergio Kindle is highly rated and a top pro prospect. After seeing the sack he got on Texas Tech quarterback Taylor Potts, it’s easy to see why. Let’s go to the videotape:
It’s incredible that Potts walked away from that hit like it was nothing. Maybe he was just acting tough for the moment but really felt woozy as soon as he got to the sidelines. His reaction really didn’t matter because the fumble set up a Colt McCoy touchdown pass that put the game out of reach for Texas. Potts was still pretty effective throwing for 417 yards and 3 touchdowns proving once again that it’s more about Mike Leach’s system than the guy throwing the ball.
