VIDEO: Tashawn Manning (Clearly) Flops After MSU Altercation
With just two minutes left, as Kentucky was wrapping up the win, the television camera caught this clip of Tashawn Manning flopping after a player from the Mississippi State defense tried smacking his face mask and it sent the internet into a frenzy.
It seemed like everyone online noticed it from wherever they were watching the game and every single one of them thought it was the funniest thing they had ever seen. I know speaking for myself, I about died from laughing so hard when I first saw it. I think in moments like this one, where his actions didn't effect the outcome, I'm all for it. It provides that spark of energy for the ones viewing and honestly what does it hurt? I enjoyed it quite a bit.
As for the grand scheme of things, Mark Stoops said in his postgame press conference that he thought it was fair to say that tonight the offensive line played the best they have all season. Then in the locker room, Chris Rodriguez gave the game ball to them.
Heck of a night for Kentucky to get finally get back in the win column after a struggling last two weeks or so. Although tonight, specifically the first half, wasn't the prettiest, a win is still a win.
