YouTube Time: The Fake Punt

Oh, Phil Brady. You were the King for a Day.

Late in the fourth quarter in 2005, the mediocre punter found himself in a position to seal up the Sugar Bowl win for the Mountaineers. On a 4th and 6, on the Georgia 48, and with just 1:45 to play, Rich Rodriguez correctly went for broke. The "Rugby-Style" punt opened up the defense, and Brady rushed to victory. An epic finish, to a truly fantastic game. I'm glad I was there to witness Mountaineer history. On a side note: The Georgia fans' reactions are priceless.
