Kent State player goes the wrong way

This is a play that will live forever. Watch as sophomore Golden Flashes linebacker Andre Parker scoops up a Towson muffed punt and returns it 58 yards in the wrong direction. The biggest problem I have with the whole play is the fact that the Towson players tackled him. WHY? Where they just that confused? Did they not understand that had he kept going and dropped the ball or run out of the end zone they would have scored 2 points?

FWIW, LSU plays Towson this year.
