So, I'm watching the Vikes game Friday, and they bring in Brock for the last series of the game. Lesnar gets his first solo tackle of his NFL career with about 1:30 left to go in the game, and the friggin' Metrodome goes NUTS~! The crowd went wild, and the announcers just could not believe the response Brock got for that tackle. It honestly was one of the loudest cheers for the whole game. The announcers were really amazed by how well people like this guy, and by how many people KNOW him.
Texas only had one timeout at that point, not enough to stop Bama from running out the clock. Plus, why risk a fumble when you can just take a knee? It wasn't smart or nice. Didn't catch the sign but others have mentioned it too.
