Miami (OH) RB ejected for throwing a punch

Posted by Chip Patterson

Well this is starting to become an opening weekend tradition.

After being up 3-0 early, Miami has seen their lead slip away in second quarter on a series of mistakes that includes two interceptions and a failed fake punt.  QB Zach Dysert had a pass picked off by Florida S Ahmad Black and returned to the Miami 2 yard line.  Frustrations took over when Redhawk RB Thomas Merriweather threw a sucker punch and was subsequently ejected.

To make matters worse for Miami, their second string running back is out due to a violation of team rules.  The backfield duties for the remainder of the game will fall on the shoulders of true freshman Tracy Woods.  

It was not as cool as LaGarrette Blount's punch from opening weekend last season, but still great to see the tradition being continued.  Let's revisit, shall we?
