Marshawn Lynch is considering coming out of retirement to play for his hometown Oakland Raiders. Marquette King, Oakland’s punter, is all for this idea.
King has been taking time out of his busy offseason schedule, which includes practicing punts in a green Power Rangers costume, to encourage Lynch to join the Raiders. We hope it works, because it would be ideal for Lynch to finish his career in Oakland.
It all started with a little cajoling from King.
There’s no guarantee that the final outcome would have been different if the proper call had been made, but there’s also no doubt that the sequence completely changed the direction that the game was heading.
Sure, Villanova was the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed and got beat in the second round, but at least they were competitive. Florida State was playing a team seeded eight lines below (more than the differential between ‘Nova and Wisconsin) and was blown out from basically the opening tip to the final horn, which occurred with the scoreboard showing 91-66. The American public didn’t seem to have a whole lot of faith in Leonard Hamilton’s team heading into the tournament, and on Saturday the Seminoles proved all their detractors correct.
We could talk about the fact that they only scored 39 points or we could talk about their history of March disappointments. Instead of doing either of those things, we’re simply going to sum this game up in four seconds.
