The man who knocked over
Alabama's BCS Trophy breaking into pieces is Carleton Tinker, father of longsnapper Carson Tinker. And he has finally spoken out to ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel...
“In my mind, it was slow motion as it rolled off the top of the trophy case onto the table onto the floor,” “I’m not sure if I bumped the table when I turned around, or if my foot caught on the large tablecloth they had draped and puddled on the floor. That’s exactly what happened.”
“At night, as I went to sleep, every time I closed my eyes,” Tinker said, according to the report, “I kept seeing it roll off and hit the floor. That marble floor in the trophy room – it wasn’t going to be a soft landing. It shattered. It spread out all over the place.”
