    It appeared that most of the tackling done by Tulsa ended with them rolling on the ground while hanging on to a cyclone players foot. Towards the end of the game I started wondering if they were trying to twist an ankle. Did anybody else pick up on this? I am going to start watching for this during the rest of our games. This seems pretty dirty if it was intentional.

    On Broomfield's pick that offensive lineman went right for AJ Klein's knees. It got a little chippy as soon as the outcome was secure.

    Yeah, if all you got is their foot, what else are you going to do?

    It's called grab on for dear life and do anything to bring them down. My short and very underwhelming high school career consisted several of these since I was over matched athletically.

    They looked like my Jr. High team tackling out there.
