UNC Pulled ‘Fainting Goat Prank’ On QB
Amid a standout 2012 season in which he threw for 3,356 yards and 28 TDs, North Carolina QB Bryn Renner was the subject of one of the better orchestrated team pranks we’ve seen in a while.
In a recently released video from a Tar Heels practice last fall, the whole entire team on the field — offense and defense — pretended to faint after Renner took the snap from under center. Renner’s reaction of spiking the ball out of mock frustration was pretty great as well.
The inspiration for all this was the burgeoning popularity of YouTube videos documenting the travails of fainting goats. Excellent coordination, Larry Fedora and company.
