Dropping a ball that hits you right in the hands during the biggest game of the year is probably every punter’s worst nightmare.
Unfortunately, it became a reality for Michigan’s Will Hagerup when the ball sailed through his hands and ricocheted off his helmet during the third quarter of the Michigan-Ohio State game on Saturday.
As you can see from the animated GIF below, his life appeared to flash before his eyes as soon as Hagerup dropped the ball. He was eventually tackled for a 17-yard loss that gave OSU the ball at the Michigan 32-yard line.
Fortunately for Hagerup, OSU had to settle for a field goal and ended up losing to the School Up North, 40-34, meaning Hagerup can now laugh at this like the rest of us.
