WATCH: Michigan player hilariously face plants during College World Series
Michigan and Florida State are playing Monday night in the College World Series from Omaha, Nebraska.
UM’s Jordan Nwogu found out he had a little bit too much momentum when sliding into third base. Nwogu started a head-first slide, but he was too upright and face planted; things surely didn’t work out too well for him.
Nwogu turned into an Internet meme rather quickly, but the best part was him popping up and smiling about the slide. Thankfully, he wasn’t hurt and scored a run later in the inning.
This is just too great not to share, and you can bet his teammates will never let him live this one down:
