With his team trailing by seven touchdowns and under a minute remaining, Rutgers' coach Kyle Flood drew groans from fans and media members alike for calling timeouts during his team's last chance to salvage points from the contest.
And yet three heroes rose rose from the distance.
I am of course speaking of Rutgers' colonial cannon guard. (If you're confused about the colonial cannon—scarlet knight connection, it's because Rutgers was named after a Revolutionary War hero. Yes, he must be proud.)
Rutgers went onto claim a touchdown, and the nation was treated to a firing of Rutgers' cannon. It was not something we knew we craved until then.
