College QB somehow avoids delay of game, pukes before snap
Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder had quite an unusual night against SMU on Saturday.
In one sequence, he ended a two-touchdown third quarter with a 32-yard touchdown, but then minutes later, came back on the field only to vomit before a snap, and then throw an incomplete pass. Despite apparently not feeling well, Ridder didn’t come close to a delay of game penalty.
By early in the fourth quarter, Ridder and the Bearcats were up 28-10 as Ridder was 12-for-19 passing for 116 yards and one touchdown. It appeared to be a strong showing in a top 20 matchup, as the No. 9 Bearcats scored 14 points in the first quarter and third quarter.
Here’s hoping Ridder was able to get over whatever ailed him, so he could finish the game.

Why does Desmond Ridder look like a 40 yr old man in this pic? pic.twitter.com/Q8q1bGs2Qm

End of a fantastic 3rd Q for the #Bearcats.
UC up 28-10. Outscored SMU 14-0. Out-gained them 147-38.
Capped off by Desmond Ridder running for a 32-yard TD, then coming back out and puking on the field minutes later.
