After pushing the pile for a one-yard touchdown run near the end of the second quarter, Logan Thomas went to the sideline favoring his right hand.
Oh, there was blood. "It was just squirting," Logan said. "All you could see was the meat underneath my finger nail and blood covering it."— Andy Bitter (@AndyBitterVT) September 22, 2012
(Little bit of, "ewwwwww," after the jump. But there are gifs of Logan hamming too.)
That appears to be Logan's fingernail peeled back off of his thumb. He, we, all got lucky it wasn't anything worse. A lot can go wrong, even for someone 6-6, 260, trying to ram through 2,500-plus pounds of flesh. LT3 plays a physical game, and the offense is infinitely better for it. We saw Saturday how Logan grinding between the tackles (then just the threat of it) softened the outside. It's just risky business having the quarterback do the dirty work, but at this point it is necessary because it's outside the skill sets of the tailbacks.
Forgetting what I just wrote, and for good measure, here are gifs of LT3 punishing defenders.
Logan said time hit BG player instead of going out of bounds fired up team. "We needed something to get us going. It kind of sent a message"— Andy Bitter (@AndyBitterVT) September 22, 2012
Indeed it did.
