That’s because they’re, as Jeff Shearer called them, lowlights: Sunday Night Lowlights. (Can’t see them? Try here.)
Jason Taylor’s was actually a pretty dang athletic play, and given that he possibly either thought the ball was fumbled, an ambiguous resident of that weird behind-the-line gray zone where even the most expert football rulesman falls on it just in case, entirely understandable.
As for Brian Robinson, well, I mean, ripping things off is just what Auburn’s secondary did in 1994. It’s called AU-Dacity. Robinson was second in the nation that year in interceptions. He had three takeaways against Florida, and had Fred Taylor’s helmet been the ball, it would have been four.
But I think the highlight of the lowlights may be the precision description from the Gators play-by-play guy during the melee following Frank Sanders’ fumbled kick off return:
“Oh, oh oh oh oh ooooohhhh! Oh! Ohhh no!”
I mean, you would know exactly, exactly what was happening if you were a Florida fan listening to that game. It’s like you’re there (with a blindfold on).
(Don’t worry, Frank, you made up for it.)
