LSU punt returns for TD historyPosted by jhhingle on 11/18/12 at 1:05 am
Rank them all time for excitement/dazzle; was ODB J's the most? C Jones vs Moo St.? 1) ODB J 2012 vs OM (almost same track as 3)! 2) C Jones 2009 @ Miss. St. 3) Billy Cannon 1959 vs OM 4) S Green 2003 vs UF 5) K Faulk 1996 vs UH What u got?
Probably the Billy Cannon one because of the number of tackles broken. The Mathieu almost-TD return vs UGA would've been the best. That was probably the slowest and most exciting return I've ever seen by an LSU player.
Nothing will never and can never top billy cannons Halloween run. It's just one of those timeless moments in sports. In ten years we will have forgotten about beckhams return (great though it was, not attempting to take anything away from the kid) but Cannons run on Halloween night will forever live in LSU lore.
