Isaiah Battle Ejected from N.C. State Game for Upper Cut

By DJ Byrnes on September 20, 2013 at 11:09a

I don't watch much MMA but that seems like good, compact form to me. Also, an upper-cut is a much better sucker punch to throw in a football game due to the helmets. 

After last night's game Dabo Swinney called this a "poor decision." You don't say. (Regardless, it's the best uppercut I've seen since this.)

And while we're talking GIFs and Clemson-NC State, this seems quite pertinent:

Doughboy fresh.

Why the 2 quick steps back?

Gotta increase your peripheral vision in case you get ganked by an enemy.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

Why the 2 quick steps back? you can get a running start for your next hit of course.    
1) Startle the fool with a jab or quick upper cut.
2) Take 2-3 Steps back.
3) Quickly check surroundings for other fools that might "front".  
4) Launch yourself into foe with elbow/knee/fist/foot/forehead....Ong Bak style
5) Look down at your foe, who is now doing..."the fish" ala Zach Boren over Devin Gardner
6) Gloat

I almost threw up with that second gif. It's like the Itchy and Scratchy show over there...

stepping back so when the refs look to see who knocked that guy out you aren't in the area...

Maybe he saw the NC State fans in the second GIF and recoiled in disgust.

Clemson really had a bad night considering
Your team gets exposed for not being hot shit like everyone thought to start the season. NC State was without their starting QB and they were the same team that had to rally to beat an FCS school with a starting Caliber QB.
Not only all that but a bad call by the refs handed you the momentum
All that adds up and I guess you punch a safety half your size for just jawing at you...I feel better and better about things after this game

What in the world?  Was he trying to get ejected?  It's like: 'Let me sneak this uppercut in.  Nobody is gonna see it.'  Maybe he thought he was in a blind spot from the 10,000 cameras.

Poor decision? A bit of an understatement. He might be sitting out a while.

Such a selfish play, man. I saw it on tv and instantly got pissed off. Such a selfish action taken by a knucklehead. The thing is, he will probably issue an apology. The thing is, if you saw him on the sidelines, he was still spouting his mouth off, try to be a bad ass, basically (looked like) he was backing up his actions. So any apology he makes should be swept into the trash and marked down as ungenuine. This kid deserves A MINIMUM three game suspension.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

That second pic is just wrong....especially how all three are scratching and itching off their war paint:-)  The one in the middle looks like he's itching his nipple lol!  I'm dying to know what the "F" guy is doing out of the pic?  

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

The O should NEVER be desecrated as such. Bad job by him.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

If we had a player do anything close to what this chicken shit did it would be national sports news.  The e$pn"s of the sports world would be seen chanting, "it's UFM fault" and claiming that he has lost control of the team.

You didn't hear? This actually was Urban Meyer's fault.

I guess you don't like Troy Smith, then, by using that logic.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Looks like the three boys used Grandpa's whitewash paint recipe. 3 parts hydrated lime, 1 part salt, and enough water to make it runny. "Billy Ed, ma skins a burnin'!"

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

It looks like the dumbass is trying to live up to his last name.

Those three boys playing with their nipples is very disturbing. I wish I could unsee it.
