Heading into last Saturday's matchup between West Virginia and Texas Tech, most people expected that one of the quarterbacks was going to have a monster game and his team would win in a blowout, and that QB would be Heisman frontrunner Geno Smith. And as we know now, that was wrong. The real badass QB of the day was Seth Doege, as the Tech senior threw for 504 yards and 6 TDs in his team’s 49-14 thrashing of the then-No. 5 Mountaineers. But nobody cares about that anymore, thanks to that wonderful gentleman above.
The details of this Tracy Jordan-esque runner at Jones AT&T Stadium from this matchup are still mostly unknown. Some people claim to know the dum-dum’s name, but I don’t care about that. What I want to know is the important details, and thankfully when Scott MacWatters, the person who captured this incredible picture of the would-be streaker with a delighted police officer in chase, showed up on Reddit to take credit, one person asked the truly essential questions.
Redditor DFWTooThrowed asked:
1. How the hell did he get all the way to damn near the 20-yard line before any police even noticed him?
2. Please tell me you also got pics of him being form-tackled by all of the cops!?
And MacWatters replied:
1. Not sure. I got reaction shots of the players when they saw him. There weren't happy.
2. I didn't. a WR walked in front of my camera. I was also on the south side of the stadium in the southwest corner using a 400mm lens shooting all the way across the field.
Kind of disappointing actually. However, what wasn’t disappointing was the addition of this photo to the r/photoshopbattles subreddit, because the results were delightful. Well, most of the results were delightful and some were flat-out racist. But I put together some of the best and added several of my own so we can all bask in the glory of the Texas Tech streaker.
