On November 14, 1970, one of the worst tragedies in college sports history occurred. The Marshall University football team was flying to Kinston, North Carolina for a game against the East Carolina Pirates when its plane tragically crashed, and all 75 people on board the flight were killed.

The Marshall Thundering Herd certainly didn’t Southern “Miss” this dude, who, for some reason, decided to hide in the foggy entrance way that was to be used by a group of people called “The Thundering Herd.” [Continue Reading]
Hilarious. The fog makes this perfect. How many times do we see people get trampled when teams enter the field? You have to keep your head on a swivel here.
Football is a game. It is supposed to be fun for us to watch and even more fun for the guys involved to play. Typically the enjoyment we get from watching the game comes from awesome tackles, bruising runs, big passes, bone-crunching sacks, and all sorts of other awesome plays.
But sometimes the most fun and enjoyment can be had courtesy of the blooper reel.
One Marshall fan had the honor of leading the Thundering Herd onto the field on Saturday – only to trip, fall and get trampled by players.
Thankfully, he was helped up by two Marshall team members. But if he leads the team back out onto the field again, he might want to get a head start.
The Marshall Thundering Herd proved in a way why they had their nickname as they ran over one of their own on their way to the field on Saturday.
The kid was run over, tried to get up and trampled a little more. Just so this is not confused with black Friday… he was helped up by two players moments later.
Marshall Thundering Herd quarterback Rakeem Cato was scrambling to get away from pressure when he coughed the ball up. Southern Mississippi looked like they would recover the ball, but they couldn’t fall on it. Marshall and USM then spent the next few seconds scrambling around the field trying to recover a fumble that looked like a hot potato. Might want to work on being...

But the best part of the game — okay maybe not the best, but another pretty amusing part — came early in the second quarter when...

Taylor was committed to Louisville for nearly two years, however academic issues led to Louisville and Taylor mutually parting ways.
