OT -- The Hit

Something I stumbled across on YouTube. This is the greatest hit I've ever seen laid on a player, although The Best Damn Sports Show apparently only rated it #21:

I remember watching this game with my roommate in college, and we were just floored by that hit. We got on the phone and started calling people, telling them to flip over to ESPN (if I'm not mistaken, it was an ESPN Thursday night broadcast) and see what just happened, since they replayed it about 50 times. I think that one play got Coryatt drafted #2 overall.

And my friends and I found out a few months later that Kyle McPherson, the player who got his jaw broke on that play, was dating a girl we had gone to high school with, which we found to be very funny.
