Some of the greatest moments in life occur when the Venn diagram of Sports and Humanity congruently overlap.
Such was the case yesterday in the Nebraska vs Fresno State college football game.
In July, Nebraska punter Sam Foltz was killed in a car crash.
In their first 4th down situation of the year, Nebraska coach Mike Riley sent 10 players onto the field.
A punter didn’t join them.
Nebraska lined up in the “missing man” punt formation and took a delay of game penalty to honor their lost teammate.
Fresno State declined the penalty.
