TCU taunts Ole Miss with ‘landshark’ celebration (Video)
TCU made an incredibly loud statement during the first half of the Peach Bowl on Wednesday, dominating Ole Miss in every phase of the game and storming out to a 28-0 lead. The game got so ugly that the Horned Frogs began relentlessly taunting the “Landshark” defense.
Those who have followed the Rebels ferocious defense throughout the season know that the unit refers to itself as the “Landshark D.” TCU threw the hand gesture in Ole Miss’ face early and often on Wednesday.
Here’s what sophomore defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche had to say about the Landshark defense back in October.
“I just feel like it’s the fact that we’re so tenacious,” Nkemdiche said. “We have so many people that run to the ball. All-out effort, pursuit, that’s what Landsharks do, man. We just go. It doesn’t matter. We’re at the point where we’re fighting for the tackle.”
As we all know, the original Ole Miss landshark is this guy.
The Rebels entered the Peach Bowl ranked first in the nation with just 13.8 point allowed per game. Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace, who threw an interception in his own end zone instead of giving up a safety, didn’t exactly put the Rebels’ defense in position to succeed.
