This Has to Hurt SO Much


During last night’s Rutgers/Louisville game freshman Jourdan Brooks broke out a 62 yard run that featured a great mix of speed and power. The rush features Brooks dropping his shoulder and driving through the first level of defenders and then shedding tacklers as he powers down the line until Louisville’s Travis Norton manages to catch up and drag Brooks down. How did Norton manage to stop him? By taking him down by the dreadlocks, ripping one out of Brooks’ head in the process. Awesome.

From the Newark Star-Ledger:

“I’d have to say on a scale of one to 10, an eight. No, nine,” Brooks said describing the pain of having one of his dreadlocks pulled out. “It hurt pretty bad. I never felt any pain like that. But I’m alright.”

Brooks — who rushed for 126 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown — wasn’t upset about losing a strand of hair however. Nor did he say that the tackle will convince him to cut it. What he was most upset about was not getting into the endzone.

“I was upset that he tackled me,” Brooks said. “I wanted to score there.”
