You're going the wrong way!
Kent State linebacker Andre Parker made the news for all of the wrong reasons on Thursday night. In a game Kent State had clear control of, Parker picked up a muffed punt in the first half and returned it the wrong way.
It's the first week of the season, so mistakes are going to be made. However, it's hard to understand why Parker never realized he was headed the wrong way.
The ball was technically dead after Parker touched it, but the referees did not blow the whistle, which allowed one of the strangest plays we might see all year to occur.
An underrated part of the video is Parker appears to get up after the run and talk trash to the Towson defenders.
Needless to say, this is a play Parker would probably like to forget.
